This week we have been learning about Spiders. We have sung and wrote the Nursery Rhyme ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ and they have loved re-enacting the Nursery Rhyme in the water tray. We have also read the stories ‘Aaaaarrgghh Spider!’ and ‘The very busy spider.’ The children have definitely loved being minibeast detectives and they have enjoyed looking for spiders everywhere!
The children have also loved making their own spiders and webs on the play dough table and on the workshop table, and they have enjoyed painting spiders on their glittery webs.
The children have been busy writing down facts that they have learnt about spiders.
They have also enjoyed lots of spider maths activities this week. They have sequenced spiders, added spiders, subtracted spiders and shared spiders in half!
The children have especially enjoyed this week’s role play area. They went minibeast hunting in the classroom and became the next David Attenborough!
This week the children have been learning about milk and why it is good for us. The children know that milk is good for us because it makes our bones, teeth and nails grow strong. They also know that milk contains the vitamin calcium! They have been busy thinking about Oliver’s trip to the farm and they have been thinking about what fruits they would like to put in their milkshakes. At the workshop table they have been collaging milkshakes and they have then written super sentences about their milkshakes. The children have also been sequencing milkshakes, fishing for phoneme milkshakes as well as painting cows.
The children have also learnt about where milk comes from and they watched Farmer Jack milk his cows by hand and by machine. The children really enjoyed having a go at milking a cow. The laughter from each family group was lovely to hear. The children were certainly enjoying their learning.
We have ended the week with the Donald Duck group going to Sainsbury’s. They went to Sainsbury’s in the school minibus, they selected the ingredients for their milkshakes, they scanned the food and paid at the self-checkout, and they came back to school on the Number 49 bus.
The yellow family group wanted to make banana milkshake.
The red family group wanted to make raspberry milkshake.
The children enjoyed making their fruit milkshakes. They thought they were yummy, scrummy, fruity, frothy, icy, nicey milkshakes!!!!
The children have spent the rest of the week learning about fruit. They have been learning the different types of fruits we can eat, they have been learning about where these fruits grow and why fruit is good for us. They have been busy writing about their favourite fruits.
They have also been weighing fruit, adding and subtracting with fruit as well as making fruit salads with play dough.
The children have really enjoyed being an Imagindocus in our market stall.
And they have made some very creative fruit salad bowls at the workshop table.
We have ended the week with the Mickey Mouse group going to Sainsbury’s. They went to Sainsbury’s in the school minibus, they selected the ingredients for their fruit salads, they scanned the food and paid at the self-checkout, and they came back to school on the Number 49 bus.
Back in the classroom the children enjoyed making their fruit salads but they enjoyed eating it even more!
This week the children have been trying to persuade Goldilocks to eat her vegetables. They have made their own healthy dinners using a variety of different materials. The children were fantastic at choosing their own resources. They really thought hard about the colour and shape of each piece of food. Their dinners look delicious!
The children have also been on a trip to Sainsbury’s to buy the ingredients to make Goldilocks some vegetable dinners. The yellow family group wanted to make Goldilocks a vegetable pastry pie and the red family group wanted to make Goldilocks carrot and potato soup.
Minnie Mouse went to Sainsbury’s today. They went to Sainsbury’s in the school minibus, they selected the ingredients for the vegetable pie and soup, they scanned the food and paid at the self-checkout, and they came back to school on the Number 49 bus.
Back in the classroom the children have been adding up carrots, taking away shopping bags and writing about their favourite meals and vegetables
The children have also enjoyed getting fit this week, both in our outdoor classroom and in the playground at lunchtime! The Swans have had a busy week!
