๐ŸŒˆโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸกVE Day picnic at home

Thank you to all the families that have taken part with our VE Day picnic at home and well done for your beautiful work you did to decorate your gardens, it looks like youโ€™ve been very busy!

R had a picnic in his garden with his dinosaurs. Look at all that yummy food!
Deacon did some lovely colouring with his sister. I have a feeling he ate his picnic on his trampoline!
Amanda and John had a BBQ and scones for their picnic. They look very patriotic! ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง
In Sarah’s road, we had a stay at home street party. We had our picnic on our neighbours drive so we could talk to her through the window as she is too poorly to go outside. We made some scones and put bunting up outside everybody’s houses to make the street look pretty.

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡งVE Day preparations

Hello Rabbit class, we hope you are all well and being good for your Mommies and Daddies. It has been great to hear your news and see your photos of you having fun in your gardens, playing with bubbles and reading your stories.
We are all missing you very much and cannot wait until we are all back together again. If we were currently at school, we would have been busy getting ready for our VE day celebrations. It is such a shame this will not happen, but we would still like to try and get us all to celebrate if possible.

It would be really nice if we could still celebrate, by having a picnic at the same time in our gardens or indoors if you prefer. It would be great if the children could have a go at preparing some of their own snacks or sandwiches too.

I have added some craft ideas below if you want to have a go at making some decorations!

Please join us in celebrating 75 years since VE day by having a picnic in your garden. Don’t forget to take some photos!
Twinkl have some great colouring sheets that we will try and send home for you to decorate.
Bev our music teacher misses you too and wants to send her best wishes to you all, she has been busy practising her drums and has even put her Rabbit toy in her window for her neighbours to spot on their daily walks. She is also going to help find some nice music for us to listen to for our VE day picnics. Thank you Bev!

Outdoor learning ๐ŸŒธโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒœโญ๏ธ

Hi Rabbit Class๐Ÿฐ,
We hope you are all okay, keeping safe and had a happy Easter ๐Ÿฃ with your families.
As the weather is going to be sunny this week, please find some new ideas for some outdoor learning and messy play ideas. We hope you have fun with them.

Have fun getting messy In the garden- how about making some rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ foot prints, a petal perfume or flower potion? You could also help your Mommies and Daddies by mark making using rollers on the pavement outside (cleaning in the process!)
Have fun mixing up some mud and dandelion pies, adding water and giving it a stir to develop your coordination and fine motor skills.
Lots of sensory opportunities to be had using water balloons; using scented or coloured water, freezing them and feeling them melt. Practise your life skills, cleaning your own t-shirts, washing the bubbles off. Build up your tolerance to different textures and practise your balance by walking on slippery mixtures. Help develop your speech and language skills by learning to blow bubbles or drinking through a straw.

This week you may get to see some shooting stars ๐ŸŒ  if you look up to the sky at night- it needs to be a clear night with no clouds. Please let us know if you see anything.

Saint George’s Day 23.4.2020

It is St George’s Day this week too. Please find some ideas below to help support learning at home.

If your child is missing their Friday cooking sessions and would like to have a go at some baking, here is a tasty recipe for lemon yoghurt muffins supported by images and simple instructions for you to try at home.

At the circus

This week we have been developing our gross motor skills- squiggling whilst wiggling using dance ribbons to make circle shapes.
We have also continued our interactive story โ€˜At the circusโ€™, we have practised walking the tightrope, squirted the clown, swung through the air like a trapeze artiste and been a magician; pulling a rabbit out of a hat. The children have enjoyed finding their own photographs for the story and role playing. For our fine motor activities they have created their own lion face masks, hand print clowns, as well as completing a circus matching game. In our funky fingers session the week, we completed some inset puzzles, by matching the images and pushing them into place.
In cooking on Friday we will be making sandwiches.

World book week 2020 – Showtime!

Wow ๐Ÿคฉ what a fantastic week we have had, celebrating our love of reading. We have been very lucky to have lots of special visitors this week to teach us circus skills and enable us to explore bubbles and games. All the children loved posing on the red carpet and dancing with their friends as part of our celebration assembly. Here are just a few photos to showcase what we have been up to!

Well done Mummies and Daddies for the wonderful costumes, everyone looked fantastic!
Billionaire boy, Willy Wonka and film stars!

Chinese Dragon Dances

Today we were very lucky to have a Chinese dragon workshop at school. The children had the opportunity to learn some new skills; using fans, parasols and dragon masks to dance to Chinese music.
Lots of fun was had by all. The children showcased their new skills to their key stage 1 friends in the show finale.
