SUMMER TERM 2:
It has been lovely to see the children keen to return to school after the half term break. This week has been very busy, particularly Friday which involved observational drawing, descriptive writing and creative recycling for environment day! Some of the work completed today will be entered into art competitions at the village flower show, watch this space!
This term we are learning about the Christian concept of Salvation, meaning being rescued from harm, ruin or loss. Using our beautiful outdoor environment as a tool, the children played a ‘hide and seek’ game which taught them a new strategy to use if they ever get lost.
“1,2,3 WHERE ARE YOU?” “1,2,3 I’M OVER HERE”
“WHAT WOULD JIGSAW JENIE BE THINKING IF SHE WAS LOST?”
EVERYONE DISCUSSES PERSONAL EXPERIENCES OF LOSS
“I got lost at Doniford Bay, my sister found me and I felt happy”
“I lost my favourite toy in my bedroom. Mummy told me to tidy up and then I found it.”
“We got lost in the car and had to go back to where we started.”
The children have been learning about 3d shapes and investigating their properties. They found out that spheres and cylinders have curved faces and are good for rolling; cuboids are abit like a stretched cube and can slide; pyramids and cones can spin very fast!
An enabling environment
Ladybird’s lovely classroom is enhancing teaching and learning, there are lots of rich opportunities for children to discover more when planning their own learning –
“Play is the highest form of research” Albert Einstein
Our school’s picture of the moment is ‘Explosion’ by Roy Lichtenstein. Our creative class recreated this through colour and movement…..
Circle time with Jigsaw Jenie, the children help Jenie record the things she did during the Easter holiday, this included eating 100 Easter eggs!
Spring term 1:
Happy New Year! A big THANK YOU to all families for all of the Christmas wishes, cards and gifts. I had a lovely time with my family and now feel ready to begin a new term full of exciting learning!
WORLD BOOK DAY 2018
So many characters….. so many stories!
FIRST AID WEEK 26.2.18
It was a joy to see the youngest children in the school be so engaged in lots of important activities this week. All of them were confident to share their personal experiences and then apply their new knowledge within their play, Mrs Parks is a very proud teacher! We will continue the theme ‘people who help us’ over the coming weeks as the children are really interested and have lots to contribute.
The school bell was replaced by ambulance sirens at the end of lunchtime.
Roger works on the ambulance and told us all about emergencies.
Developing fine motor skills by colouring, cutting, drawing and writing. Great phonics William!
