This week we have been learning about birthdays. We have made cards, played at parties in the house outside and counted the candles on our dough cakes. We have read and discussed The Blue Balloon story and carried out writing activities around this. We have had our first ride on the scooters and bikes in the playground and have learned to draw and paint a portrait. There are some more sounds in book bags for practise. The children have had a go at blending the sounds too. It is the end of the first full week. They must all be tired!
