It’s Valentine’s Day!

We began the week with listening to the story ‘Guess How Much I Love You’, which introduced us to the celebration of Valentine’s Day. We have been busy exploring heart patterns by matching the correct halves. We have also used our counting skills by making cheerio bracelets and matching amounts to totals. We had a great time getting messy with chocolate as we made heart shaped treats and baked some special cakes for our loved ones. Towards the end of the week we had a wonderful time dancing and playing games with our friends in our class valentine’s disco. Finally we prepared and made some very special gifts to take home on Valentine’s Day, we hope you enjoy them. We would all like to wish you a very ‘HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!’

 

The Magical Animal Circus!

We have had a super week at school. We began by bringing the magical side of the circus to life through exploring and enjoying a story called ‘Jack in the Box’. We created our own magic pictures using colour changing crayons and magic water doodle mats. There has also been many magic tricks and talents performed by all from popping candy to keeping the balloon in the air. Throughout the week we have helped prepare our fruit and made some circus themed dishes including clown custard faces and circus animal pancakes. We finally completed some activities based around the animals in the circus. We listened to the story ‘Nightie Night Circus’ and create some wonderful paper plate characters, we also enjoyed playing some elephant games including ‘Elefun’ and ‘Doh Nutters’.

Circus Fun!

Roll Up! Roll Up! This week at school we have continued with our circus fun. We began by entering our classroom circus through the rainbow curtain whilst listening to the story ‘Noisy Circus’. We all took part in performing as a weight lifter and amazed our staff with lifting the very heavy inflatable weight.
During the week we concentrated on the theme of ‘clowns’, we had a great time using sponges and cream pies to splat our clown faces. We even designed and made our own clown hats and ties to wear during our activities. In our cooking session we worked as a group to make our own custard fruit flan which many of us enjoyed tasting.
By Friday we became expert jugglers when bouncing the balls on our parachute and created some amazing paintings when dipping and rolling our balls in different coloured paints.
