We look forward to building the dens next week. 
We really enjoyed English this week. We have been reading and following instructions. We identified bossy verbs and used commas to write lists of equipment. We made pirate hats, paper aeroplanes and sandcastles and we really enjoyed making toast and banana smoothies!
Jacob's mum brought in their pet snake, Douglas. He is a Banana Pastel Royal Python.  Jacob's mum told us lots about him, like how he uses vibrations to work out where things are. We asked lots of great questions. We all had a stroke or were brave enough to hold him. 
In science we have been looking at the importance of good hygiene. We conducted an investigation with ‘Glitter Bugs” to find out how germs are spread. We then investigated the best way to wash our hands in order to get rid of all of the germs. We talked about different ways to keep our body and clothes clean.

We took time to reflect on how Jesus' mother Mary and his disciples must have felt to see Jesus in pain.
