Today, the Seahorses have been exploring weather. We made our own tools to help us be weather forecasters- wind socks and sun catchers!

Seahorses have been learning about minibeasts today! We have been using words to describe what they look like. We created some fantastic sketches that match our descriptions!

Seahorse’s Jigsaw lesson today was all about food, glorious food! We chatted about healthy and unhealthy food, then prepared and ate our own healthy sandwiches! They were ‘delicious’ and ‘tasty’.

We LOVE the ‘Hairy Maclary’ books in our class, so in this week‘s Story Club we read a few of his stories and made our own Hairy Maclary picture!

We tried shouting up to the giant but he couldn’t hear us! One Seahorse said we should try writing him a letter! We wrote some letters and drew him some pictures to say sorry. We hope he will find them and come down for his things by the morning

Seahorses having fun in the snow! We collected it in our buckets and weighed them to see who had collected the most!


Seahorses tasted some Chinese foods this afternoon. We even had a go at using chopsticks… very tricky but we kept trying and got there
