Hi Ho Hi Ho Its off to work we go in the Pine Room.

Learning with Sensory Cards, here we identified the object, touched the sensory part, made the Makaton sign and the noise …successful learning indeed!!

MOVE in my Pacer – changing the Board to what I want to watch!!

Identifying Shapes.

Literacy – using the Color Monster characters to help describe the characters in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Lets have a wee chat girls!!!

Sensory Play – digging for jewels just like the dwarfs (although they did it in dirt!!)

Outside in the sunshine – a rare sight!!!

Let me help you with your jacket…

Numeracy, we used the story ‘Spinderella‘ this week, lots of counting and clapping!! We also had spiders frozen in ice – not real spiders!!!! We worked on our tolerance of having the cold ice touch our skin, counted the spiders, and  identified the different colours.

Which colour is your favourite?

This is the Hairy Godmother.

MOVE  – In our Standing Frames watching some counting songs.

Now a note from your ECO-CAPTAIN – reduce, reuse and recycle – well I think these responsible citizens have done all that and more!! Using feed bottles to ‘Feed the Birds’. We all worked as a team on a sustainable goal SDG 17 – hope the birds like them.

The birds need water too….

Ready for home – have you had a good week?

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Pine Lockdown Week 1 – Spinderella 🕷🕸

Well Happy New Year Pine Class – different start to the New Year from what we had hoped!!!

There is a pack with different activities – you can pick and choose the bits you want to do or do it all – remember we love to see your photos and lovely art work.

While Wilson and Logan were in the Beech Room last term they heard the lovely Mrs Wilson reading the story Spinderella to some of the class during Numeracy – what a great story for counting!!! So for this we are going to base all our activities on Spinderella ….and Spiders!!!!

Who likes SPIDERS???

LOGAN is not a fan – used to be really scared, but she loves the Spinderella Story.

SHIELDS only likes tarantulas!!!!!

WILSON is the Spider Catcher – no squashing spiders on her watch -Joan the Janitor comes to get her when there is one in the school!

BOYLE is fine with them as long as they aren’t too close, but loves how they can spin their magic webs.

Spider’s Web  are very impressive indeed, check out the link below.
