The children have had a great week in Squirrels. We have 'been' to Ireland with Barnaby Bear, Visiting Giant's Cause Way, the Titanic Museum and a field of shamrocks! Super work has come from this, from excellent mark making, to writing, role play which was a lot of fun, and excellent reading also.
In maths, the children have been counting to 5, 10 and 20, and super boy has hit target, counting to and recognising numbers to 5! Another super boy has been adding and subtracting from 50! Well done boys! We have also looked at 'heavy and light'. Super exploration of heavy and light from a small group of children, and three boys were excellent at weighing objects from around the classroom and telling staff which object was heavy and which was light! Super work Squirrels!
We had a great day today celebrating Children in Need. We have coloured by numbers, finger painted spots on Pudsey's eye patch, baked and iced biscuits, and made a Pudsey headband!
Have a lovely weekend!
Over this week we have enjoyed following Barnaby Bear while reading the poem 'In Flanders Field' by John McCrae. We have created items related to the poem using different mediums:- playdough, craft, water play, soil, green rice. Some children have been reading and following instructions to create a an item, and have been super stars in their writing also. Some children have been using their fine motors skills to mark make and write in soil and rice. On Monday, we made poppies. Wednesday we made larks and explored feathers. On Thursday we made crosses and hearts, and on Friday we looked at the soldiers and how we remember them. In maths we have counted poppies, baked soldier biscuits and made playdough. In PE, we followed Barnaby Bear around the hall following positional language to explore the equipment. We have enjoyed lots of messy play and music and dancing also!
