Our ugly bug ball
We dressed up as minibeasts. We had a parade around the hall with the children in the morning nursery. We played a game where we had to move in the style of the various minibeasts. Then we listened to music and matched our movements to the music’s tempo.
During our topic of dinosaurs we read a book called The egg by M.P Robertson. It is a story about a boy who finds a giant egg inside his chicken coop. The boy looks after the egg and when it hatches he discovers it’s not a chicken inside...it’s a dragon! We decided as a class we wanted to make eggs. We each made a magic egg out of clay and using our imagination decided what might be inside. We each wrote a piece of writing about our egg to describe what it looks like and what was inside.
In Red Class we have been planting garden peas. We used an old toilet roll tube to recycle instead of using a plastic pot.
All of foundation stage will be taking part in a 12 week programme called Play-trition. This programme is designed to teach children to understand and make healthy lifestyle choices. They will be introduced to characters called Joe and Emma and will be given the opportunity to explore different foods, find out where they come from and learn what’s healthy and what’s not. The children will also be told about the importance of eating breakfast, how to keep our teeth healthy and how food gives us energy. This is a fantastic opportunity for the children and I am sure they will really enjoy it.
In PE we have been practising ball skills. We have been throwing and catching, kicking and dribbling.
This half term we are lucky enough to have Mr Sharp in our class to teach some design and technology. He will be working with the children, teaching them skills such as; measuring and sawing using different materials. Their end goal will be to make a vehicle.
