Summer Term 1
St George's Day Activities
Welcome to our Circus
Our topic this half term is 'The Circus'!! Come, follow us on our adventures in the Big Top
In our music lesson this week we have been exploring 'sway' and how music influences our movements. We also made choices about what instruments we wanted to play.
Chinese New Year
Today, in Hedgehogs Class, we celebrated Chinese New Year. We explored rice noodles with our feet or hands, we created lucky fish and chose the colours that we liked best, but best of all we decorated a face of a dragon! We painted our hands red and then placed these on our dragon picture, we then set off party poppers and used the string to decorate our dragons and just to be sure we used all the lucky colours, we added gold glitter J
We hope that you all had a good Christmas and New Year. The children seem refreshed, happy and ready for work. The staff are looking forward to encouraging our children to explore our next topic which is 'Traditional Tales'.
The story of focus this half term is 'The Gingerbread Man'. This story will form the basis for all our other lessons across the curriculum.
We hope that you all had a good half term. It is wonderful to have our children back in school and ready to start the new term.
As we build up to the Christmas break our focus will be on everything wintery!! During the next four weeks, we will explore the cold, through feeling ice packs, painting with frozen paint and experiencing some amazing freezable soft snowballs (we may well be encouraging your children to engage in snowball fights :D). Where there is cold, there has to be warmth…so will also focus upon keeping warm!
Children in Need 2018
