Day and night

This week we have decided that our Oakwood Superstar is…

Amirhan! 🌟

Well done Amirhan! You have participated really well in all this weeks activities and maintained focus during our good morning routine. Doves are very proud of you!

This week we have been reading the story ‘Funny Bones’ to help us learn about our day and night topic. We painted the paper plates one half blue and one half black and were able to stick the pictures of different things we see in the day and night. On Tuesday we really liked going into the gym and exploring the various pieces of equipment. We played with the hula hoops, threw bean bags into the basket and balanced on the rolling boards and the benches. We had lots of fun! On Thursday we were very excited to go swimming again. We played with lots of different floats, we tried blowing bubbles in the water and some of us practised floating on our backs like star fish. On Friday we explored the sounds of the different instruments and enjoyed playing along to some Disney songs.

Archie! 🌟

Well done Archie! We are all extremely proud of you. You are doing so incredibly well and deserve to be this week’s Superstar!

This week Doves Class loved splashing around in our classroom during our water play on Thursday. We got out out water tray and filled the tuff tray with lots of water and bubbles and thoroughly enjoyed playing and sharing with our friends. We enjoyed it so much that we ended up splashing each other and a lot of us got very wet, but best of all we had fun and shared lots of laughs and giggles!

Today we enjoyed playing some songs on the whiteboard and doing our dough disco using our amazing fine motor skills to… squeeze, pinch, splat and roll the play dough. Also this afternoon we took part in our first Oakwood Superstar. We had our disco lights on, sang on the karaoke and danced the night away.
Well done to all the children this week you have all worked so hard and a big well done again to our Oakwood Superstar Archie! 🌟

Daring Doves

What a week it’s been!

We have been so busy trying out new activities this week we are certainly building up our confidence.
At the start of the week we absolutely loved painting our very own space rockets like the one in our story ‘Whatever Next!’. We even managed to turn ourselves into spooky aliens and ghosts using the paint brushes and rollers to paint our faces 👻

During our cooking session we managed to use our excellent fine motor skills to carefully cut up different fruits to make a fruity solar system. A lot of us even tried the different fruits and loved them. Yummy! 😋

Thursday was a very exciting day as it was our first time going swimming!
We enjoyed the journey to the swimming pool on the bus as we sang songs together and made each other laugh.
Doves Class were so incredibly brave and got into the pool and thoroughly enjoyed swimming, splashing and playing with the different floats. We can’t wait to go again next week!

Whatever next!

This week we have been reading the story ‘Whatever next!’. The children have loved exploring our story tuff tray and enjoyed reenacting scenes from the story.
At the start of the week created our very own astronaut faces using paper plates and paint and enjoyed our experience of going to the moon in our P.E lesson. We had lots of fun playing with the parachute!

Throughout the week we enjoyed mixing different ingredients to make our own star biscuits during our cooking lesson and we are doing incredibly well during snack time using the pictures to help us communicate what snack we want.

Doves are doing amazingly well and we are enjoying every second!

Week 2 in Doves Class

Our second week in Doves already and we are having so much fun!

We have all settled in incredibly well! We are getting more familiar with our daily routines and are enjoying playing with our toys and exploring our surroundings with confidence.

Tuesday we used the magnifying glasses and the mirrors to try and help us search for the hidden pictures of ourselves in the lentils.
On Wednesday we used our senses to explore a variety of foods including: salty, sweet, sour and bitter. A few funny faces were made when trying the sour lemon, but we very much enjoyed the chocolate buttons. Throughout the week we also enjoy having our sensory play as well as enjoying our free time to play with our chosen toys.

Doves are flying high!

It has been an amazing week!

We have enjoyed exploring our classroom playing alongside our friends with our new toys, as well as playing outside on our playground with the bikes. We are so proud of Doves Class and how well they have settled into the classroom and the new routine.

We can’t wait to see you all again for another amazing week! 🙂
