News from last week — Well, what a surprise to be returning to home learning this week. You have...
So...what a couple of weeks! This weeks news is last weeks and this weeks combined after technical...
Our first full week of home learning in Year 4 has flown right on by! You've all been amazing...
Y6 you are just superstars. There are no other words to describe how I feel about you all in these...
This week we began our learning based around the story 'We're going on a bear hunt' by Micheal Rosen.
In our literacy sessions we read the story and joined in with repeated phrases. We also discussed the character of the bear and talked about the feelings of the bear. The children were asked 'How does the bear feel and why?"
"Sad, because he's got no friends"
"Sad because the girl locked the door"
"Her is big, he is scary"
"Sad because he wanted Rosie to be his friend"
"Sad, he might be crying"
"Sad he wants to play"
"He wants to be friends because he is nice"
We have developed our communication and language development.. We thought of other adjectives to describe the settings in the story e.g. tall grass, green grass, cold snow, white snowstorm, a scary, dark, cold cave. The children could also thought of descriptions for some new story settings to include in their own version of the story, for example "What a windy day", " We've got to go through candy cane land", "Crunching, falling leaves".
We have developed our turn taking skills this week too and have played many bear hunt games, we have played snap, a memory game and bingo.
Within our physical development each day we have taken part in bear hunt yoga, the children have retold the story and followed the different yoga poses. We have also been very independent in getting ready for outdoor play dressing in our coats, wellies, hats, scarfs and gloves!
Within our mathematics we continued with our numberblocks learning and were introduced to another one. We learnt that when one and another one are combined together it makes two. We also learnt that two can be separated into one and another one. We were also introduced to language such as 'twice as much' and 'pair'.
Within our free play we have packed back packs and gone on bear hunts, created paper plate bears, attempted to clean up all the leaves fallen in the garden, used sticks to measure, thought about how we can get the torches to work and have used the compare bears to match, describe size and order.
On Monday 11th November we observed a 2 minutes silence to remember the brave men and women that have fought to keep us safe. We created poppy hats and medals too.
As part of anti-bullying week we have been busy reading 'It's okay to be different' by Todd Parr and we made our very own class book! It was lovely to read stories that children had brought in from home too celebrating difference. We also learnt a song called 'So What' with lyrics like 'so what if my friend has a long nose and lots of eyes, purple hair, yellow teeth and lives on a planet with blue grass (he is an alien!) it sings "inside he is just like me". It was also lovely to share your tapestry observations show casing the children's individuality and uniqueness.
On Wednesday P.C Nick came to talk to us about staying safe on the roads. We know we must hold an adults hand, only cross in safe places, walk on the pavement and wear bright clothes to be seen in the dark. Thank you for helping to keep us safe P.C Nick.
On Friday we raised money for Children in Need by coming dressed in spots/fancy dress/pudsey wear. We used cotton buds to print spots onto bears and created our very own pudsey ears.
Also on Friday we were treated to a Mini Kickers taster session. Flyers are in your child's tray.
Next week we will take part in World Nursery Rhyme Week, please add to tapestry your child singing their favourite nursery to share at preschool and don't forget to bring your teddies in from each day to help with our learning.
Have a wonderful weekend preschool,
