We can help pick up litter.

What an amazing week we have had in Foxes. 

We worked on gross motor skills by having a ‘squiggle while you wiggle’ sessions. Then we worked on our fine motor skills by making marks, or writing our names in shaving foam. We’ve had some chilly play times, and a nice warm by the (fake) campfire.

Our favourite activity last week however, has to be our amazingly hard work learning about litter, mess, and how to tidy up. We had a visit from the wonderful Beth, who showed us that litter and rubbish is bad, and should be tidied away into bins. Beth gave us all a hi-vis-vest and then showed us how to use the litter pickers. We worked so hard tidying away all the rubbish that was left in the hall, and outside on the little playground. 

Well done us!

We can make choices.

Another busy week in foxes last week.

We learnt how to do forward rolls in P.E, we had a wobble playing the jelly beans game, we had a relaxing time in the library, and we had a laugh dressing up as clowns for our circus sensory story. 

Our favourite activity last week however, was designing our very own potion. We could choose up to 6 different ingredients, and we had to add the symbol ‘mix’ at the end. 

We can all share.

What a lovely first week back we had.

We all settled back into our routine extremely well. 

We all took part in our morning work, our circus skills P.E sessions, a very splashy swimming session, and a very wet walk to the local co-op in the rain. 

Our favourite session last week had to be bubbles. We all did amazing turn taking and sharing of the different types of bubble wands. We blew big bubbles, and very small bubbles. We even tried our hardest to catch and pop the bubbles. 

Well done every one, and welcome back. 

We can celebrate Christmas.

We have had an amazing time celebrating Christmas this year.

We  have created a range of Christmas crafts, played pass the parcel, musical chairs, pulled crackers, decorated the Christmas tree, had Christmas dinner, and even visited the Snowdome Winter Wonderland.

Merry Christmas everyone.

We can pose beautifully for a photo.

We’ve had a wonderful time at school so far this year.

Here’s a collect of the best group photos we’ve taken so far.

 

We can make loud and quiet sounds.

During a music session this week, we explored a range of instruments that make loud sounds, and those that make small sounds.

We had big drums, small drums, big guitars, small guitars and rain makers.

We explored these sounds by banging, tapping, tipping, shaking, and even some singing.

We can celebrate Diwali.

This week we joined in celebrations for the Hindu festival of light, known as Diwali.

We used salt dough to make Diva lamps, before cooking them, and then decorating them with the colours of our choice.

On Wednesday afternoon, we joined our friends from other classes to celebrate together in the hall.

We got to experience; bhangra dancing, drumming, smelling different Indian spices, dressing up, henna hand patterns, tasting traditional Indian food and making rangoli patterns out of coloured rice.

 

We can make pizzas at Pizza Express

Our class was lucky enough to get a trip to Pizza Express in Walsall, to make our very own pizza’s.

Firstly, we had to put on our hi-vis-vests and sit sensibly on the minibus.

Then, after arriving at Pizza Express, we had to wash our hands, put on our aprons, and choose where to sit.

Next, we had to explore and stretch our pizza dough.

We then had to spread our tomato sauce onto the pizza base.

Next, we added cheese on top of the sauce.

Whilst our pizza’s were cooking in the large ovens, we had the opportunity to try a few new pizza toppings.

Not many of us enjoyed the new pizza toppings.

Once the pizza was cooked, Pizza express boxed our pizza’s up ready for our minibus journey back to school.

 

We can explore movement in P.E.

During P.E this half term, we have been exploring different types of movements.

We can climb up the climbing frame. Slide down the slide.  Run around the hall.  Crawl through the tunnel. Shake the dance ribbons. Dance along to the music. Climb onto the agility blocks. Balance across the agility blocks. Jump off the agility blocks.  Throw the tennis balls. Carry the tennis ball box to collect the tennis balls. Roll the tennis balls down the ramp.

We enjoy our extremely active P.E sessions.

We can cross the road safely.

Every week we go for a walk to the local shops to work on our life skills.

This week we walked to the local co-op to buy some goodies.

On our way to the Co-op we had to cross a few roads.

To do this safely we used the crossings, pressed the button and waited for the green man.

We are all very good at pressing the button and waiting patiently for the green man. Well done us!
