The children have been chatting today about islands and this led to discussions about volcanoes. We have researched volcanoes on the computer and some of the children have been making their own volcano models out of papier-mâché and play dough.
This afternoon we were moving in different ways like different animals which led to the children talking about crabs, both real and make-believe. We researched these on the computer and found clips from blue planet. The children loved talking about what they saw and sharing their knowledge with each other.
We are sharing the story of Jack and the Beanstalk in class this week.
After reading the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, the children decided they would like to make a beanstalk out of painted footprints. They had a wonderful time having the cold paint tickle their feet and then they squelched their way up the paper leaving their footprint trail.
It is lovely to see everyone after the half term break. The children have been full of beans and have chatted lots about what they have done over the holiday.
We have had a wonderful afternoon watching a performance of Sleeping Beauty performed by M and M Theatre Productions. The children were enthralled and loved joining in with the show.
We have had preschool come and visit us for a story and play today. It was lovely to see them
We have had a visit from Senora Wright who has been teaching us some Spanish. We have been learning our colours and how to say hello.
We have started reading the story ‘Man on the Moon’ by Simon Bartram. The children have decided they want to build their own rockets and are really busy.
