Wow what a fantastic week in class, the children have amazed us with their focus and the great work they have produced.
We have worked on recognising numerals, ordering numbers and counting amounts. We have also been practicing using tens frames, some of us have even been counting all the way to twenty!
We began our new story ‘the dot’, which is a lovely story of a little girl who is feeling sad and frustrated that she just can’t paint or draw. Until her teacher encourages her to make a mark on the paper and this begins her journey into discovering that she can make beautiful art with just DOTS. This taught us that you can do anything that you set your mind to. It is about having confidence to believe in yourself and encouraging and nurturing others.
As well as painting lots of dots for our new display, we have talked lots about our emotions and what things might make us feel happy, sad or angry.
This week we were very lucky to have Katy from ‘Fun Little Foodies’ to help with our food tech session. She will be working with us for the next few weeks, how exciting ! This week the children made quiche independently and have learnt that eggs come from chickens. They cracked eggs, cut veg and whisked eggs all by themselves. They then all had a try of their creations! Yum yum yum!! Katy also added a bit of arts and craft and the children made their own chicken collages.
We had another successful trip out horse-riding, the weather was so nice we had a trek around the grounds at Pegasus stables and even stepped over jumps! Amazing for week two.
Then a nice snack in the sun before we headed back to school.
Have a great weekend, stay safe.
