Children In Need 2019
The Whole School enjoyed taking part in fundraising for Children in need this year, wearing their sporty clothes and pudsey ears! The rainbows had lots of fun taking part in the 'Joe Wicks Big Morning Move', doing lots of different exercises.
Thank you for your kind donations for such a worthwhile course.
Fire brigade visit!
We were very lucky to have the firemen and fire engine come into School today!
We learnt lots about fire safety and what uniform firemen wear to protect themselves. We also got to have a go using the hose like we were putting out a fire and sat in the fire engine with our class peers! The fireman even put the sirens on, they were very loud!
This week our focus has been exploring colours and recognising and describing 2D shapes. The class have been using a range of materials including chalk, tissue paper and collage materials and paints to create their shape picture. The class have used their imaginations to design a range of pictures including a robot, aeroplane and racing car!
All of the children have been introduced to the library, enjoying lots of stories with Ms Abbott.
In PE, the class have been using their bodies to make different shapes, as well as learning to throw and catch effectively using the beanbags.
All of the Rainbow children have settled in fantastically, forming new friendships and enjoying exploring their classroom!
This week we have been focusing on Elmer stories, colour and shapes. We have listened to lots of Elmer stories thinking about how Elmer might have felt thinking that he was different than the other elephants. We also baked our own Elmer biscuits and decorated them and made patterns with icing and sweets. It was fun and they tasted yummy! We printed using different objects and colours onto our Elmer's, exploring how those materials felt using our sense of touch. The class came up with lots of describing words!
A busy first week at School!
What a fantastic first week at School the Rainbow class have had!
The children have settled in very well and are beginning to form their own friendships and learning the Rainbow and School rules.
The class have enjoyed lots of circle time, taking part in speaking and listening activities, playing in the outside area, having their first PE lesson and visiting the library. The children are looking forward to meeting more Rainbow children at School next week!
