We have really busy in nursery today learning about our special sound. We completed a range of phonic activities on the iPads, made the letter ‘a’ out of ‘Wikki stix’, wrote the letter in shaving foam and finger painted it too. We even went outside to practise our letter formation with chalk.
What a busy couple of days we have had with all our firework themed activities. We made lovely glittery firework pictures, designed our own bonfire night rocket, made fireworks out of sparkly play dough, made big firework pictures outside using different coloured chalks and we played firework pairs and number matching games. We even had time to make an edible breadstick sparkler. Delicious!
We have been having lots of fun in ‘Fun Club’. Our activities include: cooking, painting, crafts, football, iPads and Crome books, board games, and music and dancing. Just have a look at the photos to see how much fun we have.
The nursery and reception children have had a busy morning participating in lots of pumpkin themed activities. First of all they listened to the story “Pumpkin Soup” before going outside for lots of pumpkin fun. They hammered pegs into pumpkins, made pumpkin collages, made pumpkins out of play dough, and sponge painted bowls to look like pumpkins. They even had a “Roll the pumpkin” competition to see who could roll their pumpkin the furthest! To finish the morning off they had a nice bowl of soup to warm them up. Delicious!
Blwyddyn Pedwar have had a great week working on lots of interesting things! We have been working hard planning our bank robbery newspaper articles, along with learning some line dancing moves to challenge our 2 left feet!
Also, after learning a little bit about Native Americans and their way of life, we have spent some time making dream catchers which will hopefully go up on display soon.
Finally, after a lot of reminding (nagging!) the classroom is nearly ready for a class pet. There is a fish tank, with water and some gravel. Something important is missing though, although we can’t think what?
This afternoon the Year 3 children have been very creative producing fantastic animal masks. We first discussed the variety of animals found in the rainforest, which ones were our favourite and why. Some of the children’s responses included the sloth, monkey, jaguar and snake! We then put on some calming rainforest music as the children completed their masks with tissue paper. Can you guess who is hiding behind each mask??
This afternoon the children have studied the french artist Henri Rousseau and looked at some of his jungle inspired paintings. We focused on Tiger in a Tropical Storm and talked about the colours and shapes used. The children then had the opportunity to create their own tiger pictures. Grrrrrrreat job boys and girls!
Today the nursery children have been very busy learning all about shapes. They cut out shapes and used them to make pictures, used magnetic shapes to build, threaded bolts through circular washers and nuts, and made different shape sandwiches. We even danced to the Mr Maker shape song!
