We’re going on a bear hunt. We’re going to catch a big one. What a beautiful day! We’re not scared. Uh oh...

Today, we had our Handa's Surprise fruit tasting session where we read the story, paused after each fruit was stolen from Handa's basket and tried that fruit. We used our senses to discuss the fruit and share our likes and dislikes about it.

We are learning lots of new games in PE - this is one of our favourites! The fishes wait by the wall and the rest of the class hold hands to make a huge net. We pick a number and then tell the fishes to swim, weaving in and out of the net. We start counting and drop our arms down when we get to our agreed number and see if we have trapped any fishes.

We have had lots of fine motor skills activities with a number focus out during choosing time this week.

We worked hard with our buddies to create a picture of what makes us happy.
