This week we have been practising hopping on one leg. We all find that hopping is easier on our strongest leg. We have been practising hopping on both legs. Remember to use your arms to propel yourself forwards. Talk about how it feels different hopping on each leg, how moving your arms makes it more powerful. Have fun hopping! Let me know how you get on by email.

This week we have been looking at patterns. A pattern is when something happens or is done following a set of rules which can be in a repeated or regular way. We have been spotting patterns in and outside the classroom and making them.
Encourage your child to look for patterns at home and out and about, talk to them about the type of patterns they see. Maybe try and create patterns together. Email me some photos of what you spot. Have fun pattern spotting!

This week we have been in Magic School. The children have had so much fun (and the teachers too) that we have decided to continue into next week. Homework this week is to think of a magic potion that would be exciting to make. What ingredients would be needed to make it and what would it do?
In your ‘Busy Bee’ book ask a grown up to write the type of potion you have invented. Draw the ingredients that you would need to go into it and then draw the potion in its bottle. Have fun inventing!!!!
Don't forget to email a photograph of your work.
