Squirrels

Welcome to Squirrels Class

 

The team in Squirrels Class is Jess Evans (Teacher), Vicki Nuttall, Emma Horsfield,  Chelsea Gott and Jolene Taylor-Barnes.

 

 

These 3 have been exploring the props used in our Supertato Sensory story! They remembered everything that happened in the story.

WOW! Look who ordered all the numbered fish from 1 to 20..

We have been learning about our bodies and ways to keep ourselves healthy! This week we looked at our teeth and practiced brushing our teeth, making our own set off teeth using marshmallows and also did some brilliant mark making using the bristles on the brushes!

We've had some very wet play times recently, so these boys have been practicing their threading skills!

On Wednesday's we wear capes! We love Art/DT with Mrs Nuttall, we are currently creating our very own Superhero capes!

Squirrels are very keen explorers, one of our favourite place to explore is the Multi-Sensory room! We get the opportunity to control the colours, sounds and smells in our environment!

Look at this future musician play the drum!

Our Squirrel stretch of the week is.... bending our knees so we can jump like frogs! We practice by bending to touch our toes and trying to put our shoes and socks on!

Squirrels are loving their Gymnastics lessons with Sandersons this term. We have been working on our rolling, jumping, crawling and our balancing skills whilst have lots of fun!

This week, these boys have been working hard on their posting and stacking skills. Keep going you two!!

We are loving our new story - Supertato! We have to help the Super potatoe save the other vegatables from the Evil Pea and stop him from turning Supertato into mash!!

What a fantastic half term! Squirrels have made all of us, extremely proud and they should be very proud of themselves too! They have worked so hard, and here are just a few of the memories we have made this term!

We had a very special visitor today! FATHER CHRISTMAS!! We were all very excited and we received some lovely presents as we've been so good and worked very hard at school!

Oh dear! It appears that Eddie wanted his revenge on King Kong for locking him in the tissue dispenser and has taped him to the window! How on earth did you get up there Eddie?

We had such a lovely time at our Christmas party. We got to play lots of games and dance with all of our friends!

In Maths we have been looking at things that are heavy. We went on a hunt around school to see what we could find. Some of the objects were soooo heavy, we had to use our big strong muscles to pick them up! Look at the size of that tiger!

High Five! We've been looking at different ways we can show numbers and today we decided instead of using our own fingers, we would use our squishy hands instead!

Oh dear! It looks like King Kong has had enough of Eddie's cheeky ways and decided to lock him in our tissue dispenser. I wonder if he'll manage to escape...

Today we decorated some delicious gingerbread men. We counted how many buttons we would need and did some excellent sharing with our friends.

The children have made all of us super proud. They performed amazingly. What a fantastic show!

Camel costume? Presents? King's crowns? Hmmm, that can only mean one thing.... IT'S NATIVITY TIME!

What has that cheeky Elf been getting up to now?

Some excellent communication has been happening in Squirrel's class this week. The 1st Squirrel has been requesting more music by placing one hand on his ear, and the other Squirrel has been using symbols to ask for his snack choice.

This week we are learning all about Ireland in Geography. We have listened to some Irish music (our teachers did some beautiful singing to Westlife) and we had a go at River dancing. Check out this future dancing star...

This young man has been working on doing up his zip, independently, for such a long time. This week his perseverance paid off and he achieved his target. We are all very proud of him!

A very cheeky Elf arrived in our classroom this week. His name is Eddie! Every morning when we get to school, we find that he has been up to mischief in the night. Just look...

This young man is loving our counting song in Maths (10 pairs of knickers on the washing line) and is loving singing some of the words too.

Our Inclusive club this term is Sensory Mark Making! We made marks in shaving foam, gel and some amazing water beads. We added water to them in the morning and watched as they grew and grew throughout the day.

Today we celebrated St Andrew's Day by making traditional Scottish potato cakes (we have no pictures as we ate them too quickly, they were delicious) and we took part in our very own Highland Games and did the Caber Toss and Tug of War.

The Sinking of the Titanic - in History we looked at the Titanic and had to rescue some of the passengers from an iceberg!! We used different salts and water to melt the ice and save them!

We are focusing on Wales as part of our Geography this week, today we played a game of tag rugby and made some dragons (out of shapes) to look like the one on the Welsh flag.

Yesterday, we learnt all about Wales! We looked at the flag, danced and played instruments to Tom Jones/Shakin Stevens and then we made some Welsh Cakes. Today we are going to look at a Rugby game and have a go at playing tag rugby ourselves, then we are going to build a dragon mask out of shapes, keep your eyes peeled.

We took part in a Curling competition today! Our teacher said we were fantastic!

We're Going on a NUMBER Hunt! We searched for the numbers in the ball pool and made the right amount using the balls.

We have been practicing making shapes with our mouths and whistling! Watch the video to see this superstar make some amazing sounds.
