Friendship – health and wellbeing

We have been learning about relationships, in particular looking at friendships.

We had to sort pictures to find friends.  Then we spoke about how friends can fall out.  Most importantly, we learned how friends can help each other and make things better to stop them from falling out.

It was a really interesting discussion and now we are trying to make sure that we don’t fall out with our friends.  If we do, we know what we can do to make up and be friends again.

Learning through play

Some of us have been wanting to work with letters and the alphabet so decided to make up the alphabet puzzle.  We didn’t want our photo taken though!  Katie, Nora and Lottie Mae all helped to make the jigsaw.

Others wanted to make their jigsaw a little trickier so decided to do it upside down so that they couldn’t see the picture.  They worked together to make sure the piece all fit together correctly.  Archie, Nora and Lauren all worked together as a team!

Others decided to make lovely patterns using the mosaics.  It must have a been a camera shy day as they too didn’t want their picture taken.  Maximus made these lovely patterns.

This also inspired Nora to make her own pattern.

Ollie decided he wanted to build a tower using the lego.

Design

There has been inspiration for lots of different things this week.  Lottie Mae has designed and made her own olden days school and classroom using the blocks.

Ewan has been making pizza after having a delicious school dinner.

Ollie designed his very own boat with lots of different things that move on it.

Using our imaginations, we have made fantastic things and have been inspired by many different situations.  We shall post up more as we see/do them, keep an eye out for updates!

Instructions are important but craft linked to language is more fun!

We always do some craft linked to our language and sounds.  This time we were using the tricky sound of u – this year we decided to go for up!  We made our very own pictures of up houses.  This helped our fine motor skills and listening for instructions, whilst still giving us the chance to be creative.

Free time…..what to do I wonder?

We had some free time today and chose to do lots of different things.  Nothing was set, it was all our own interest.  This is how we kept ourselves busy.  We had a picnic, made chilli chicken, pizza in a pan and used the pots for musical instruments.

Some of us made a city, an aeroplane, a car and people out of construction materials.

Others decided to write letters and colour in, taking great care to do their best, as always.

A few of us went fishing, designed tractors, did jigsaws and found dinosaurs.

Inventors and designers were also in the classroom.  A tv is important in our eyes so it was important to design a tv with magical day and night tv screens at the same time.  It was just as important to have the switches, control panel and sockets at the back of it!
