El pasado jueves 13 de octubre los alumnos visitaron la "Casita Museo del Ratón Pérez".
Now that it has started raining we can now say out loud: Autumn is here!!
Continuing on with our topic of 'The Gruffalo', and linked in with 'All About Me' the children have been labelling a picture of the Gruffalo (writing the different parts of his body). The children learnt a lot of new vocabulary from the story such as 'claws' and 'wart' and reinforced their language of the the body parts.
Year 1 has been learning about the '5 Senses', and what better way to learn about our sense of smell by smelling pots with different things in them. We loved some of them like (cologne, banana, soap and coffee) and some others were hard to guess (vinegar, garlic, tea, etc).
Continuing on with our topics of 'All About Me' the children have all tried really hard at drawing a self portrait of themselves. This acivity reinforced the vocabulary related to the body and number work.
This week in Reception the children have been focusing on the story book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar". We love this story, and we had lots of fun making our own caterpillars mixing colours. For this activity we didn't use brushes, but balloons!! Isn't that amazing?
After Miss Philippa read the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar; the children worked really hard to make their own version of the story.
Last week and this week the children have been focusing on the story of 'The Gruffalo'. Through continuous provision the children have been using the plasticine to complete the challenges on these playdough mats. How clever they are!
In Nursery this week the children are continuing with the topic of 'All About Me'. The children were given mirrors and had to tell Miss Philippa the different parts of their face. For example 2 eyes, a nose, 2 ears and their mouth. They then went on to describe the colours of their hair and eyes also.
