Teal Class Christmas 2021
It has a been a busy few weeks in school, retelling the Christmas story, preparing for our Nativity, making cards, decorations and Christmas treats!
We finished the term with a fun morning on the bouncy castles, thank you Total Bounce!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy and Healthy New Year.
This term one of our class texts has been 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. We have been story tellers retelling the story, scientists - watching our class caterpillars grow and food tasters, trying some of the different foods from the story. Watermelon was liked by most people...pickled gherkins were not so popular! The children used words to describe them....'spicy, sweet, juicy, sour, delicious and disgusting!'
We have been incredibly proud of our youngest learners as they adapted so quickly to remote learning. We have enjoyed a daily class zoom call where children have been able to take part in different activities and keep in regular touch with their friends.
Here they all are showing their brilliant rockets they made as part of our space theme.
As part of our screen free Friday afternoons the children have enjoyed learning new skills, and making the most of the winter sunshine.
We created our own Kandinsky style hearts, both at home and at school.
Our EYFS Key Worker Bubble art work and beautiful artwork from Gabriele at home.
Something very exciting happened in EYFS...the chicks we had been incubating, hatched! The children watched some of the chicks hatch and had the opportunity to carefully hold the baby chicks.
EYFS love learning outdoors. They enjoy exploring Forest School and the school grounds. Inspired by the artist Andy Goldsworthy, the children created their own natural artwork using the Autumn leaves they collected on a walk.
We have been using iPads to support independent learning, taking photographs and recording ourselves.
