More 5 for Friday-ing

Managing another link up for Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching, somehow keeping going through the end-of-term madness!

Last week my kids were looking at dinosaurs as part of our Fantasy Lands theme. Here is some independent free writing from one of my boys. So proud of his phonic skills (and dino knowledge!). 

Using our small world dinosaurs to do some printing in clay, even a week later, they are the most popular 'exhibit' in the Investigation Area.

For pirate week, a game of pin the patch on the pirate was the source of much hilarity!

Ready for when we learn about Superheroes, this website by DC Kids is going to be the hook for our guided writing next week!

And somehow in-between all this fantasy learning, we squeezed in a quick Father's Day craft!

What have you been up to this week?

Five for Photo Friday

This week I am linking up with Doodlebugs for Five for Friday and I am going to be showing five of my recent displays (did I mention the super regular display schedule my new school has?!) for our minibeast and garden topic...

Beginning of topic research, the children looked through information books and each chose a different minibeast to paint.

After reading 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' we made paper plate lifecycles of a butterfly.

Moving onto frogs, the children researched and wrote facts. Of course, we painted jumping frogs too!

For snail week, we used Kandinsky's Concentric Circles and Matisse's Snail to inspire our artwork. I highly recommend the book 'Snail Trail' by Jo Saxton to set up this project.

The result of a recent Zoom In using spider's webs. In front are some junk models of minibeasts.

June Pinning

It's only been a month, but I'm already missing Currently! So I thought I would try and find some different link ups instead. Today I am going to link up with Pawsitively Teaching for her June Top Pinterest Picks for summer. Click on the images for the original pins.

This looks like loads of fun to have outside! Though maybe will need to choose where to set it up carefully!

This is a craft that I am definitely going to do with my class next year! 

This looks great, although given the temperatures over here, I fear the experiment will be over in 5 minutes!! 

Why not check out my Pinterest page for more of my favourites?
