1, 2, 3, 4 ,5 Once I Caught a Fish Alive!

Wow Daniel! You have been very busy drawing, cutting, counting and ordering fish. Super learning!

Super concentration and cutting Lucas!

You look like you had a great time in the snow Amelia. We really like your snowman!

It is lovely to see you practising your literacy skills Daniel. You are a fantastic learner!

Incy Wincy Spider...

Mason and Lucas have been on a worm and spider hunt. How many worms did you find? How many spiders did you find?

Tasha has been busy at home weaving a web and making a sock spider.

Amelia used playdough to make her spiders. Super spiders Amelia!

Our theme this week has been Incy Wincy Spider. We have been busy learning spider facts from CBeebies' Andy and joining in with the Spidery Bounce dance. We have also been threading to create spider webs and making spiders using pompoms, paper plates and playdough. In Maths we made spider biscuits. There were lots of spider legs to count! In Letters and Sounds we sang the Incy Wincy Spider rhyme, then thought about what happened first, next and last.

As part of our online learning this week we have been making shakers. We then used them in our singing session.

 

Amelia has decorated her shaker using lots of different colours.

Humpty Dumpty...

Ordering Humpty Dumpty

We made scrambled eggs on toast, yum! yum! We noticed how the eggs changed when they were cooked.

Amelia has been busy exploring eggs at home and drawing a picture of Humpty Dumpty falling off the wall. A lovey picture Amelia!

During the week we have been investigating eggs to discover why Humpty Dumpty could not be put back together again.

In maths we worked together to build Humpty Dumpty different sized walls to sit on. We think he preferred the small wall!

In Letters and Sounds we have been exploring the sounds of instruments, copying different rhythms and keeping a simple beat.

We have been practising our pencil control and letter formation when writing our names.

Lucas has been practising his fine motor skills by tracing, cutting and sticking. Super home learning Lucas!

What careful cutting and sticking you have done Mason!

Jayden, super sorting, pencil control and reading. Well done!

Wonderful home learning Amelia. You have been busy!

Jungle Explorers

In PE today we became jungle explorers. The hall was transformed in to a jungle themed adventure, with jungle sounds. We had great fun sliding and slithering like snakes, climbing and swinging like monkeys and jumping like tree frogs. Thank you Mrs Haines for this amazing experience.

Christmas party time!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Fantastic name writing Tasha...

Fantastic home learning Isaiah. We are so proud of you...

On Friday we celebrated out first marble jar reward. We are all super learners and proud of our achievement.

Having fun as we learn! We have been developing our gross motor skills by throwing, catching, kicking, collecting, carrying and tipping!

The week we have been reading the book 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddell. We have retold the story using our story tray, drawn pictures, created a story map and joined in with the repetitive text.

We are beginning to recognise our names and can copy some of the letters.

We love exploring our outdoor learning area and have noticed some changes around us.

Take a look at our marvellous maths...

Counting...

Exploring puzzles and patterns...

Matching and sorting...

Exploring Numicon and numbers...

We have been learning how to operate the iPads. We have been practicing skills in turning them on, adjusting the volume, using 'Playhouse' and turning them off.

We love sharing books with our friends, indoors in the book corner and outdoors in the reading hut. Some of our favourite books are Peppa Pig, Dear Zoo, That's Not My... to name a few!

Make making outdoors

It's Children in Need! To raise money for Children in Need we wore yellow clothes, made spotty biscuits and held a cake sale. Yum! Yum!
