We have been very busy in ELC learning about staying healthy and keeping safe. We made our own crossing and learned about when it is safe to cross the road. We had great fun creating an assault course and did lots of jumping, running and hopping to keep healthy. We have been talking about healthy choices for snack time and have been making charts to record our choices and to help us plan for snack.
In ELC we have been having great fun finding the beat with musical instruments, getting our fingers busy by hammering nails into some spooky pumpkins and having fun mark making outdoors. What a busy time!
We have been exploring our feelings in ELC. Sometimes we all feel worried or cross and we have been exploring things that can help us feel a bit better. We enjoyed playing outside in the warm soapy water. Blowing bubbles helped us to practice taking deep, calm breaths!
We had great time in ELC recently celebrating ten years of the new school building. We explored the number ten, played some party games and of course enjoyed blowing out ten candles before our ten-themed snack!
P4/5 shared their digital skills with ELC recently by helping them learn how to do some simple programming using little robots called Beebots. Linking to the story ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt’, P4/5 made some bear costumes for the Beebots and a simple map of some places from the story. The ELC boys and girls then learned how to program the Beebots to get the bear robot back to his cave! The children had to use what they have been learning about positional language and sequencing to plan the bear’s route. Well done everyone!
ELC had a fantastic time today on our first Muddy Monday of the year! We explored the park and school grounds and found lots of places that reminded us of the story, including some long grass and lots of oozy mud! We even spotted a bear or two- luckily they were friendly! Thanks to the grown up helpers who came along to help today, we hope you had fun! Click on the pictures below to view our photo gallery.
