Engage week

We began our topic with a welly walk, we  set up obstacles along the way, this included the wind today! 

We had a great time, and we even found a giant puddle on our playground to walk and splash in!!

Our Welly Walk!

We went outside and spotted a rainbow!

It even snowed this week! we had fun exploring the snow too.

We have been learning I can sing a rainbow in music this week. We have been using our singing hands to sign. Great singing F2!

We have been building storm chasing vehicles
