Kung Hei Fat Choy!

We have had a busy 2 weeks learning about the Chinese New Year festival in class. We listened to "the great animal race" story, making our own animal masks and then having races outside. We also made special Chinese hats, explored 2D shapes and symmetry and patterns. We made colourful lanterns and went on a lantern parade outside whilst singing songs. On our last day of festival celebrations, we tried some Chinese food including spring rolls, noodles and prawn crackers. Some of the class even had a go using chopsticks!

When Father Christmas came to visit!

Wow! We couldn't believe it when we heard a knock at the door and saw Father Christmas in class! He said we had all been well behaved girls and boys this year and asked us if we had written our Christmas lists and what we would like for Christmas! We even had a special gift from him and sang him a song before he had to get back on his sleigh, feed his reindeer's and visit some more children. Thank you for coming to see us Father Christmas!

Advent

We have been preparing for Advent in class. This is the time in which we lead up to Jesus' coming and celebrate his birth. We learnt about the coloured candles and what each of them represents and made our own daily Advent promises.

We made Advent wreaths and also helped Mrs Iannelli decorate our Advent wreath for our prayer corner in the classroom using lots of greenery.

Fruit Salad!

This week we have been learning about healthy eating and the importance of having a varied and balanced diet. Jaxon's mummy kindly made the class a fruit salad tray for their snack today. The class enjoyed tasting different fruits from pomegranate to a sharon fruit during snack time.

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!

Shape Art!

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!

Elmer week!

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!
