In Squirrel class, we love reading in our themed reading corner.

Our learning was based on woodlands.
At Christmas, our woodland reading corner lit up!

We had lots of fun reading about the outfits of Halibut Jackson.

Halibut's outfit, created from symmetrical tiles.

We had fun testing materials to find out which ones would be waterproof. We didn't want Halibut Jackson to get wet!

We all learned lots of scientific words.

We love growing things in Squirrel class.

Our bulb has really grown. We are very excited!

Our amaryllis looks very different now!

We had a chance to look at some old toys.
