The children have enjoyed the Easter activities in school this week.
We have made giant masks then dressed up as the giant.
The children enjoyed making their own handprint pigs.
As part of Children's Mental Health week, our children have been doing lots of different Express Yourself activities. They enjoyed doing the Squiggle game and created pandas, teddy bears and snakes from their squiggles. They drew how they were feeling and they also enjoyed making an origami dog. It took a lot of concentration but they didn't give up and they had great fun too!
The children used different resources to make their own wolf mask! I wonder if they would be able to blow down the little pigs’ houses.
The children have explored the building of brick walls. A strong brick wall is determined by the design. Do you think the big bad wolf will be able to blow these walls down?
What a great start to our project 'Who lives in a house like this?' The children worked together to build dens. Some children built dens as part of their Home Learning too!
For our celebration of learning, the children have taken home a bauble to show how they have changed since starting school. The baubles contained ribbons to show how much they have grown since September, a photograph from their first day at school and a scroll showing how well they can now write their names.
We wanted to see if the children have grown since they started school. They have all changed since September, some have grown by 1 cm and there are some children who have grown by 3 cm!
The children have made family trees using their handprints. The children talked about who was in their family and then added their names.
Class 6 have followed a rubric to help them draw a self-portrait. The results have been amazing. Each draft shows great progress, well done.
In Maths we have been matching and sorting objects. The children had to decide which object was the Odd One Out and they had to explain WHY it was the Odd One Out.
We have started our first project ‘How have I changed?’ For our launch we asked the children to bring in baby photos and we had to guess who the baby was. It was great fun and the children were brilliant at asking questions. We were like historians trying to find out about the past.
We also measured to see how tall the children are.
Settling into Class 6
The children have settled into school well and are busy making new friends. They are becoming familiar with the routines and exploring the different areas of the reception unit.
