Autumn Walk and The Local Area

The children have been out onto our school field in our smaller groups, the children went out to see what they could find for our autumn tuff tray, we had lots of fun! We have also been on a local area walk, to see what was in our local area, we could see school, houses, church, trees and flats. The children could also hear cars and buses going past, there was lots of leaves on the path and could hear them crunching and rustling beneath our feet.

African Drumming Workshop

The children have taken part in an African Drumming Workshop, they listened to a rhythm and had to copy this rhythm back using their instrument. The children took it in turn to have a go at each of the different instruments while using puppets and different rhythms and saying to preform altogether.

SNOW DAY ACTIVITIES

​Snow Days offer a wonderful opportunity for the children to get outside and be physically active whilst exploring this beautiful and interesting weather phenomenon in all sorts of ways; as scientists, as artists, as geographers ...and as children.

As teachers, we have made the decision to embrace this as a wonderful opportunity for home learning when the children cannot safely come into school.   Please find below, all sorts of ideas for learning activities that the children can do which are linked to the snow.

We have decided not to organise these under age-related headings.  All of the activities are good fun and most are 'open-ended' enough that the children can explore them at the level which suits them.

 

BUBBLES IN THE SNOW​

This works best when it is REALLY cold outside, well below freezing point.  Sometimes it can be cold enough for the bubbles to actually freeze and be covered in ice patterns.
Even if it is not that cold, the bubbles will stay for a while on the cold snow.
It is easy to make your own bubble mixture with washing-up liquid and water!
You could have 'races' to see whose bubble lasts the longest without popping. ​Or you could take som photos of your bubbles sitting on the snow.

SNOW TRACKS AND SNOW PRINTS

​Be a 'snow detective' and search for tracks in the snow.  Which creature might they belong to?
Or use some everyday objects to make your own prints. 
 

 

This week the children have been looking at different nursery rhymes. They are building on partner work and teamwork. We have been listening to the music to find the pulse and discussing about dynamics by singing loudly and softly. We have lots of activties and areas of provision linked to a specific nursrey rhyme each day. 

Our Christmas Nativity

 The children have been practicing their lines and our christmas nativity songs. In RE we have been learning and preparing for the birth of Jesus at christmas time. We have learnt about the important key figures wihtin the nativity story. The children did a great job in performing to the rest of the school and their partents.

Chinese New Year

 The children have been learning and celebrating chinese new year. We learnt that it is a celebration where its all about removing the bad and old and welcoming the new and good into their life. The children have been making their own laterns, writing our name in chinese. We created a chinese dragon by using a range of different materials. The children had their own chinese home area to explore and use some of the items used on thier special day
