This week we are starting Learning Block 3; The Tortoise and the Hare. 

We will plan and practice different races, then at the end of the week we will take part in a mini Olympics! We will read the story The Tortoise and the hare and practice retelling it using stick and hand puppets. We will use our logic skills to make a track by laying out large paper in a sequence in the large hall, then we will practice following the path of the race. We are very excited to have our very own class pet for the week!! Ms Natasha is bringing her pet terrapin to school for us to help look after for a week. 

We will introduce the BIG question How do tortoises/terrapin's move? What do tortoises/terrapin's need? We will answer this using our enquiry skills while we investigate using a real terrapin! 

Our Personal Quality focus this week is Resilience we will use the story The tortoise and the hare to help us learn more about what resilience means.
