We had lots of fun this afternoon playing party games and of course eating lots of party food!
We hope you all have a lovely summer and come back refreshed to start Year One. 😊
Our Little Gems have had a brilliant week this week with so many exciting activities.
We learnt about bones and fossils on Monday when working with a visiting scientist.
The children had a wonderful time at Thomas Land. We all enjoyed the rides, the animals, the park and our picnic with friends. Even the weather was great!
We had a super time with our new friends on Tuesday and Thursday morning, and we look forward to another session next week.
The Animal Lady came on Friday and shared her animals from Australia, including a kookaburra and a stick insect. It was very exciting the children could even touch some of the creatures!
Class 1 had lots of fun last Thursday with Roslyn from Star Foundation. We got into four groups and took it in turn to play a rhythm on the drums, clap to the rhythm, whisper a song and sing as a princess 😊.
The Little Gems have been learning to tap rythmns in school this term. We use body percussion and instruments to help us keep the beat during singing. Our Star Foundation activity this week supported this learning.
Classs One have been reading the book The Pirates Next Door by Jonny Duddle. The children made their own pirates by using clothes pegs and various materials. They then created a home for them using the polydrons.
The Little Gems are really enjoying their bear adventures. We have travelled through the woods, had picnics and this week we went to the moon! The children are really developing their imaginative ideas and creative skills. Great learning Little Gems!
This last few weeks the Little Gems have been learning about bees and butterflies. We have had a great time moving, singing and creating these mini beasts. We made honey biscuits and a fruit salad. Well done trying new foods Little a Gems!
Over the last few weeks Class 1 have been nurturing ladybirds. The children have observed the different stages within the
ladybirds life cycle, resulting in the ladybirds being released into our garden on Monday.
Today we have been learning how to double numbers. We used ladybirds and counters to find out our answers,
for example double 3 is written, 3+3=6.
