We had a great time when Get Cycling came to school with their range of adapted bikes for us to try. Have a look at the photo gallery from the day with all the fun that all our classes had on the day.
The Rainbow Fish
We have been reading the book, the Rainbow Fish. We have been fishing and looking for escaped sea creatures in our sensory garden! we had a great time looking high and low for naughty fish.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Blue class have enjoyed doing activities based on The Very Hungry Caterpillar story. We have used the fruit in our number work by counting how many the caterpillar ate and looking at what numbers come before or next. We have been making and copying letter patterns, categorising by size and colour and practising days of the week. We have had lots of fun in art painting pictures of the food and decorating butterfly pictures.
Chinese New Year
As part of celebrating Chinese New Year, Blue class had lots of fun in messy play exploring noodles, rice and sweet and sour sauce. We tasted the sauce and made fortune cookies. We also did some fun art activities making paper lanterns using Chinese symbols. In music we listened to Chinese music and played some gongs and drums. It was fantastic to see parents participating during open week, including when we dressed up in Chinese kimonos.
Blue class have been exploring exotic fruits and animals which link to the class story: Handa’s surprise. We explored different textures, smells, sizes and colours of the fruits. We had lots of fun making fruit smoothies! During communication sessions we did different activities such as symbol work, mark making, matching letters and learning some Makaton. We also looked at animals from other countries such as Elephants and Giraffes.
