Creative Christmas share session: Wednesday 12th December
In our Christmas jumpers, we all had a great time exploring lots of different creative based activities, including painting Christmas tree paintings, making star and bauble decorations, drawing round our hands to make a reindeer hat and creating our own dough snowmen in the snowman factory. We also used our fine motor skills to cut out spiral Christmas trees as well as make trees using different sized pieces of paper. We made up stories with the arctic animals and took on roles in the Santa's Grotto role play and when building igloos and sleighs out of the blocks! Phew, what a busy time we had!!
Thank you to all the family members who joined us and we hope you enjoyed your biscuits!
We decided to make some biscuits as a little gift for our family members at the end of the forthcoming share session. We followed a recipe, measuring out the ingredients using the scales and working together to sieve the flour, rub in the butter, roll out the dough and finally cut the biscuit shapes. They smelt lovely as they cooked and we are looking forward to icing them tomorrow.
In RE, the class have been learning about Advent and its meaning. It is a time of preparation for the coming of Jesus. The children made their own wreaths with green handprints for the circular wreath and added red finger prints for the berries. They then stuck the candles on, remembering what each candle represented- love, joy, hope and peace.
The children also worked in small groups and with adult support, decorated our class advent wreath with greenery to put in our prayer corner and added the 5 candles.
Green Week: 19th - 23rd November
We were very busy for Green Week, focusing on the 3Rs of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Take a look at the Our Green School area and the Rainbows section (link below).
Children in Need
Thank you for your donations and fantastically spotty clothes today! You all looked brilliant!
An Autumn Walk
The class went on an Autumn walk around the School grounds, looking for signs for Autumn. The children worked in small groups searching for leaves, twigs and looking at different trees and bushes. It was a windy day and the leaves were blowing around the playground! The Rainbows enjoyed using the Vtech cameras and took photos of all of the Autumn materials they found.
We found out about Bonfire Night, listening to the story of the gunpowder plot, creating firework dances, chalk pictures, marble paintings and firework models.
