Today P1F really enjoyed zooming around the playground on their scooters with Katie from ibike and we just managed to dodge the rain!
Last week we shared our favourite books in class and then wrote about them on World Book Day.
On the last day of term we invited our parents and relatives to come along and play some literacy games and have a go at some activities we do to help us learn our sounds. We began by singing some songs and then we all had a fun time playing! Thank you to everyone for coming and we hope you had as much fun as we did!
The children in P2/3 thoroughly enjoyed their Fairyland topic this term and were so excited by all the visits from the Friendly Dragon. They asked if they could dress up as characters from fairytales to celebrate the end of the topic and brought in fairytales from home to share in class – thank you for the effort put in at home to make this happen. Here are some pictures of work from our topic and our dress up day on Tuesday.
This week we have focused some of our activities around ‘The Rainbow Fish’ by Marcus Pfister. It is a great story to develop the themes of sharing and friendship with the children. We have been using different media to create our own Rainbow fish and have made a beach themed tray to play in – which we decided to add pirates to! Our playdough has been decorated with sparkles and we have been changing the words to popular tunes to make them fish related as well. We have also been fishing for magnetic letters in the water and retelling the story in our own words. We are still very interested in the book so next week may well be fish themed too!
We have been doing activities related to space for the last few weeks. See the captions under the photos for more information.
We have been reading stories which have castles in them. It was suggested by a few children that we should read The Frog Prince (aka The Princess and the Frog). This has given us the opportunity to do some froggy activities. We are hoping the frogs will soon be laying their eggs so we can get some tadpoles in the nursery.
