Kingfishers have been busy buzzing around their classroom this week. They have enjoyed trying to catch all the butterflies in their nets as they floated in the air.
Amanda has recorded a lovely story by Eric Carle – please take a look – you will be able to watch it from the Oakwood School School website. Find it under Classes and Oakwood at Home:
Using our Aided Language Display to converse our wants to make a sandwich of our choice. If we forgot our knife or bread we had to remember as we travelled over to the table.
This week, we have also learned that insects hatch from eggs, just like birds. We enjoyed hunting for the bugs that were hiding in the eggs.
We continued to work on our colour mixing skills this week, and enjoyed mixing paint and shaving foam together to make bubbly paint for our leaves.
During our music session this week, we chose an instrument and developed our musical skill of listening and playing on the beat.
During our Friday cooking session we worked as a team to bake fairy cakes, then decorated them individually to allow us to practise our mixing and spreading skills, and our pincer grip to sprinkle.
This week we have also really enjoyed exploring the things we can do in our classroom when we are not taking part in a structured activity. Kingfishers have lots of fun!
Our vocabulary this week has continued to focus on minibeasts, and we have enjoyed a new song about a cheeky spider.
