Week 4

Welcome back!

 

This week we have welcomed two children into the number 4 club.

Happy birthday boys

 

Ellie is getting very excited because she knows that we have now jumped onto the yellow balloon (February) and this means it will be her birthday soon.

 

This week we welcomed Paul back into school to run our PE session.  WE focussed on balancing and throwing this week.  He said that he thinks we are ready to begin learning about different types of kicking next week. 

The children love 'Paul from the hall' and look forward to his sessions each week.

We had another visitor in school on Tuesday.  Nicola from the Local Authority Raising Attainment team came in to support the teacher's in beginning our 'Floorbooks' sessions.  The children have shown a keen interest in 'builders' during our topic 'People Who Help Us' and we created a mystery box full of tools and images about builders. 

 

*A BIG SHOUT OUT TO OUR SITE MANAGER, JON, FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP!*

 

We looked at the resources and questioned and pondered about what the tools were used for and even attempted to draw some of the tools in our new floorbook.

 

Elliott knew all about the tools and explained that his Daddy is a builder and can fix things.  Well done Elliott!

 

We have also been learning about Police Officers and the job that they do in our class this week.  Our Drawing the Write Way session was focussed around objects that Police Officers need to do their jobs.  We drew a helmet or a pair of handcuffs in out session.
Joseph tried to draw the badge on the helmet

The children are beginning to notice smaller details when drawing and are becoming more competent in controlling their pencil.

Later in the week, Eibhlin wanted to draw a carriage for Aurora (sleeping beauty) we thought about the features a carriage has and the shape of the carriage then Eibhlin drew this completely independently!

 

We have also been continuing to build strong friendships in the continuous provision and develop our turn taking skills and communication skills.
Taking turns
Practising controlling the cars together
Developing early language skills
Playing co-operatively
Sharing ideas
Learning new skills and ideas
Having fun together!
Fighting a blaze in the firefighter role play!
The boys made a den and a set of rules
One of our challenges this week was to create a repeating pattern with the pattern penguins.  Look at the success we had!

What another busy but fun week.

 

Thank you to all of the parents/ grandparents for your patience at dropping off and collection time whilst the snow plan was in place.  Hopefully, we won't need to do it again next week!

 

See you all next week

*** All pupils from Year 1 to Year 6 inclusive are expected to return to school on Wednesday 2nd September. We look forward to seeing you. ***
