To practise our Positional Language further, we played Hide and Seek with our Teddies again. But this time, our Grown-ups had to hide the teddies and we had to ask questions using our prepositonal lanuage to find them!!



Today we read the book 'King Pip and the Dark Wood'

We had lots of fun going out to our garden or for a walk to find as many bugs as we could and investigating their homes. 


This afternoon we have loved getting active for our PE lesson and enjoyed making up dance routines to music!
