20th September 19

We had a very busy day on Monday working on our fine motor skills and gross motor skills. In Busy Fingers we used construction, threaded plastic paper clips onto number boards matching number to quantity, played board games and some of us spent time trying to write our names on our work, (PD, Literacy and PSE).

In our adult-led activity we shared Lottie’s favourite story ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’. We then talked about the story and tried to sequence pictures from the story to make our own books, (CL).

Tuesday was ‘Listening’ day and we enjoyed a really fun activity working on our listening skills. We walked all around the school wearing our special listening ears, listening for noises and trying to work out which direction they came from, (CL). We heard coughing, loud footsteps, a chiming clock, a squeaky footstool and lots more.

We also had a trip to the Library to listen to stories and give our toys a cuddle, (Literacy).

On Wednesday we brought our favourite toys into school. During our adult-led activity we learnt the skills of listening and speaking as each friend told us about their toy. A few girls also managed to ask our friends questions about our toys, (CL and PSE).

We enjoyed a great Music lesson with Mrs Price today learning some new songs with actions and exploring some different and unusual instruments, (EAD).

Thursday was ‘Go Wild Day’ and we spent an exciting morning learning how to take care of bugs and then made them some houses to live in using an old plastic bottle, acorns, leaves, conkers, sticks and lots more. We have hung them all up in our outside classroom to attract lots of bugs,(UW).

After a very busy morning we took part in a mindfulness session, listening to some relaxing music and then following some lovely stretching exercises, (PD and PSE).

Friday was Welly Walk day. We read the story ‘Alfie’s Feet’ by Shirley Hughes listening carefully and trying to tell our teachers our thoughts and predictions about the book, (Literacy and CL). We thought it would be great to jump in puddles, so we went outside and took part in a mini assault course, jumping in hoops, balancing on a beam and then jumping in puddles. We also played parachute games and tried lots of different ways of moving, (PD).
