Oh we do like to be beside the seaside!
For our last term in school we will be learning all about the seaside. We are hoping to go on a school trip to the seaside later in the term which will be very exciting!
We will be having lots of fun in our seaside role play area, playing with sand and water, making shell patterns and getting arty making different sea creatures. We will be listening to stories which are themed around our topic such as: The Light House Keepers Lunch, The Rainbow Fish, Commotion in the Ocean and watching some of the Octonauts on Cbeebies!
We will be having weekly Forest school sessions this term which will be great fun and we will continue to go swimming which we have all really enjoyed so far!
Despite this term being a short one we have had great fun learning all about different vehicles and transport in our topic 'How will we get there?'
We have been practicing our counting and we are getting really good at it Well done to Ruby for achieving her first maths passport and getting her certificate!
We really enjoyed our walk to the park this term, we used our observational skills to spot lots of different vehicles on the road and we were practicing to cross the road safely and spot road signs. (have a look at the pictures on our class page!)
Please see the curriculum section on our page to see what sorts of things we got up to this term.
We look forward to next term where we can continue to build up our skills and learn lots of new, exciting things in school!
World Book Day!
We all dressed up as book characters for World Book Day. We enjoyed coming into school as our favourite character and read our favourite stories.
Can you guess who we were dressed up?
In term 4 we will be learning the Traditional stories of Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We will be learning the stories through sensory story telling.
We will have lots of opportunities to continue to practice and develop our early learning skills across all areas of the Early Years Foundations Stage curriculum. We will be practicing our mark making and fine motor skills in lots of different ways such as painting different characters from the story, cutting, drawing and using different materials to make marks in.
We will be learning to retell repetitive phrases from the stories and simply enjoy listening to different Traditional tales.
Our role play area this term will be the Giant's castle and the children have already started to grow their own beanstalks!
This term we are going to be visiting Roves Farm this is going to be a very busy and exciting term! Please keep checking the class page for photos!
Our topic theme this term is Stories, Songs and Rhymes.
We had a fantastic kick start to our topic this week as we visited the pantomime to watch Cinderella! We were all very excited about going on the bus! We all sat through the pantomime and joined in with the songs and some of the actions. We enjoyed our ice cream during the break ready for the second half of the show. The adults were very proud of the children from Peru class as for most of them it was their first experience of a pantomime, well done everyone!
This term we will be joining in with our favourite songs and learning new ones, as well as rhymes. We will be developing our listening and attention skills to listen to stories and joining in with them using our voices, signing and musical instruments. We will use a sensory approach within our art work this term where we will be exploring lots of different textures to create pictures related to our theme.
We will develop our mathematical skills, practicing to count objects more accurately and saying our number names in order to 10.
We will continue to practice our mark making skills through a multi-sensory approach whilst developing our fine and gross motor skills.
Keep looking to see pictures of our learning and the fun we have this term!
This term our topic is all about Dinosaurs. We will be making our own giant dinosaur who will live in our class room for the term, this will help us develop our painting and mark making skills.
