By the Sea!

Thursday, July 9, 2020

As we continue to learn about water, this week we have been looking at the sea. We each made an octopus and counted out its eight legs. We made salt dough starfish and sang ‘Baby Shark’ and our pirate song ‘When I was one I had some fun the day I went to sea…’. We listened out for the ‘n’ sound and looked at lots of books, both fiction and non-fiction. We had lots of fun playing inside and out.

Rivers and Ducks

Thursday, July 2, 2020

Continuing with our topic of Splish, Splash, Splosh, this week we have been learning about rivers and ducks. We have also been focusing on the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff and learning about bridges. Our sound of the week has been ‘i’ and we have been mixing red, yellow and blue to make brown to print our mother ducks. We have been singing ‘Five little ducks went swimming one day’ and lots of other songs.

We worked together on some large scale artwork when we painted a river and we worked together to construct a bridge that would allow cars to go over it and boats underneath. We even became bridges ourselves during our yoga and stretching session! We also found lots of ladybirds outside this week and made a home for them. Some had lots of spots and some none at all. We have had lots of fun!

Weekly update

Thursday, June 25, 2020

This hot, sunny week we have been learning about the importance of rain and how much we all need water. We have been wearing our hats and drinking lots of water when we play outside. We threaded pasta onto wool to make rain for our fluffy rain cloud, painted a rainbow and made splattered rain pictures outside. We also played with a water track and ice as we looked at frozen water. We listened for the ‘P’ sound and shared lots of stories. We enjoyed colour mixing and looking for bugs outside. We found a ladybird and a snail.
