Harvest – Corn on the Cob Crafts

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS *

The Daisies class have enjoyed some Harvest themed activities. We loved making a dingle dangle scarecrow using a range of 2D shapes. We also used cheerios to make a corn on the cob craft.

We used the cheerios and blitzed them to make a cheerio sand sensory tray. We loved exploring this! Some of this also enjoyed tasting the cheerios.

Harvest – Sensory Trays

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS *

The Daisies class enjoyed exploring some Harvest themed sensory trays today. We had a dry tray with lentils, frozen peas, pasta and green beans which had harvest themed pictures hidden underneath. We also had a wet tray filled with jelly and baked beans. We used this to explore a moving tractor and practise some tipping and dumping.

Oliver’s Vegetable Fine Motor Skills

The Daisies class enjoyed some fine motor skills activities linked to our Oliver’s Vegetables theme. We practised our overwriting using themed worksheets, we used play dough to make a range of vegetable shapes, we moved frozen peas using pegs and we completed an “I spy” task that required really good looking at a theme picture to find the objects.

National Maths Week – Wednesday Fun!

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS *

The Daisies class enjoyed a range of maths activities today. We split into pairs and helped each other complete some counting cars tasks. We had to add the correct number of cars to the hula hoop. We attempted to sequence the numbers 1-20 by popping balloons on the SMARTboard.

Finally, we went on a potato hunt around the classroom and managed to find and sequence the numbers 1-20.

Oliver’s Vegetables – Sensory Play

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS *

The Daisies class enjoyed a messy sensory play experience linked to our theme of Oliver’s Vegetables. We explored the potato and used potatoes to stamp some painting pictures. We explored mashed potatoes and added some food colouring and practised some colour mixing opportunities. We used a dropper to slowly add the food colouring and practised our mixing and stirring skills with spoons.

Oliver’s Vegetables – Mr Potato Head

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS *

The Daisies class really enjoyed today’s theme related activity. We used a range of vegetables to make a Mr Potato Head. We made choices of what vegetables to use for different body parts and are excited to show them off to our friends in the Infant Corridor.

National Maths Fun – Monday Fun!

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS *

The Daisies class loved today’s numeracy activities to celebrate National Maths Week. The tasks were all related to our theme “Oliver’s Vegetables” where we sorted vegetables on to a rainbow of colours. We also counted vegetables and put a peg on the correct total. We found halves and quarters of vegetables and put them together and finally, weighed a range of vegetables and enjoyed spotting which was the heaviest and which was the lightest.
