The nursery children have been busy having lots of fun today. As it was such a lovely day they had their P.E lesson outdoors. To develop their hand eye coordination they practised throwing and catching. They also practised balancing bean bags and quoits, and rolling hoops.They’ll be ready when sports day arrives!
Our special sound of the week this week is ‘w’, so the nursery children made some delicious waffles. First we toasted the waffles then the children chose from a selection of tasty toppings. Yummy! Then they went outside to do some weaving. They threaded some brightly coloured ribbon through the fence in the nursery yard. The yard looks nice and colourful now.
The nursery and reception children have had a busy morning. They listened to the story Jasper’s Beanstalk, then they went outside to do their own planting. They participated in a variety of garden themed activities. They painted a picture of a beanstalk, sorted different coloured beans into plant pots, played giant dominos, ordered stones into size, as well as lots of other activities. They all had a lovely morning, even the sun came out, eventually!
We had some interesting visitors in nursery today. Mrs Cusack very kindly brought her chicks over for a visit. The children were very excited and couldn’t wait to hold them. They were very gentle and very quiet not to frighten them. The children thoroughly enjoyed spending time with the chicks. Diolch Mrs Cusack.
The children thoroughly enjoyed our maths session today. In teams, they had to find 40 Easter eggs around the school and work out the maths sum that was hidden inside. There were also 8 golden eggs to find which contained a secret message! The children couldn’t wait to get started and it was wonderful to witness their eagerness and enjoyment during the session. Once all of the eggs had been found and the sums had been worked out, we came back into class for a special Easter treat … CHOCOLATE! Well done boys and girls, you all definitely deserved that treat at the end! Amazing work Year 3 🙂
Year 4 were treated to a visit by Mr Pearce, from the Swansea music service, who brought in a whole class set of pBuzz instruments to have a go at! We learnt how to buzz our lips, how to hold the instrument and change the slide to play different notes. We then learnt how to play along with a backing track for I Feel Good by James Brown.
The class thoroughly enjoyed the session and are looking forward to having another’s go soon!
