This week the Robins have been learning all about Bonfire Night. We decided to make our own edible sparklers using breadsticks, sprinkles and melted chocolate. They were absolutely delicious.
This week in Forest School the children have been exploring the outdoor area. They had the opportunity to create mud pictures with the mud collected, along with colour mixing some powder paints. The children created pictures of items they could find in their garden, or our outdoor area. The children also went on a bug hunt and found lots of worms!
The Robins have been learning all about people who help us. They were lucky enough to get a visit from some firefighters and their fire engine. They learnt all about how firefighters protect us and how their fire engine works. They saw huge ladders and hoses which they would use to put the fires out. They also got to sit in the fire engine!
Thank you so much to all the Grandparents (and Great Grandparent) that attended Robins ‘Grandparents Afternoon’ where we shared and compared toys from our childhoods and made mixed media pebble families.
The children in Robins class have settled so well into school life. They have been busy getting to know each other, learning their way around the classroom and enjoying some of the independent learning jobs in the classroom. They have been learning about their friends through their All About Me boxes and they have been practising their fine motor through our disco dough games. A brilliant start to the school term. Well done Robins. We are really proud of you!
The library bus is back in school on the 17th March. Please bring any books back to be returned to the library bus on this date.
Please see link below to take to you the 50 things project and app that you can download for free.
Try out the app and see what activities you can find!
Please see links attached below which have been recommended by the Early Years Team. The Cbeebies link has lots of useful ideas to try at home with your child, information and advice for parents. A handy tool!
Another useful link is the Cbeebies Alphablocks and Numberblocks shows. They are lots of fabulous clips on BBC iplayer which are used in school to help visualise and build numbers. Please do share and take a look at home with your child.
Finally is the 'Activity Passport' for children which has been released by the Government with a list of recommended activities and learning opportunities for children to experience at each age and stage. Please do try these at home.
PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Indoor kits needed and outdoor kits in the summer, please come into school wearing the appropriate kit.
Don't forget to bring in your Summer/All about me boxes into school next week as we would love to see all of the things that are important to you at home. Photos of your family and friends are welcome so we can display these with pride in our classroom.
Looking forward to seeing you all next week.
