Fantastic Friday!

Welcome back to Fantastic Friday where we showcase the amazing work and play done in the nursery each week. This week in nursery, we have been very busy! We have been discussing road safety; how we keep safe when crossing the road, who can help us keep safe and how to travel with safety in mind. The children have been making cars, road signs, doing road safety puzzles and making their own streets with art resources.

In the art area, we have be drawing and making houses/our homes which led to discussing our families and how each family is different. Some of us chose to make necklaces and pamper each other with pretend face masks, make-up and face painting..

In the construction area, we have been building houses using both the large and smaller bricks. We worked very hard and spent a lot of time on their buildings (lots of sharing resources and idea sharing too). We have been using books/stories and our white board to look at where people live (flats/houses/caravans/huts etc).

Upstairs in the two’s room they have started to look at winter and they have been continuing with light and dark. They have been talking about the changes in the weather and what clothes they need to wear to keep warm. They have also been talking about artic animals and played with polar bears in the white water.
In the art area they have been making icy pictures with foil and some lovely penguins.

We hope you have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing you on Monday! Please post pictures of all the fun you have at home on the Learning Journals.

P3 Week’s Review (9th June 2022)

This week our pupil of the week is Olivia. She has shown she is a Successful Learner with enthusiasm and motivation for learning, able to link and apply different kind of learning in new situations; and a Responsible Citizen with respect for others, able to make informed choices and decisions. Well done, Olivia! 🙂

Literacy

These weeks we have been revisiting the sounds we have learned along the year. We also explored the sound “ur” and different words with it. We have exercised our memory and listening skills trying to identify and remember words we learned with all the sounds, included the new one. During our RWI lessons, we exercised our letter formation, writing and reading skills, and our capacity of writing sentences which include more information and details.

We have also worked on our ability of reading and selecting specific information of non-fiction texts. They have done a fantastic job!

Numeracy

We revisited the previous week’s lessons, and we played some games to improve our ability to recognise some of the coins (1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p), its value and use in the real life. We also started (or continued) developing our counting money skills of coins with the same value. We played a ‘toy shop’ game to in which we had to find out if we had enough money to buy the things we would like from the shop. They have worked very hard! 🙂

We have also worked on our ability to find different dates, days and months in a calendar; and discussed the differences between the months of the year. We will continue with this activity next week too.

Topic

During these two weeks we have answered many questions that we had when we started the topic, and we learned different facts about the ocean: why the water is salted, why are there volcanic islands, how are the underwater mountains called, what tides are, what waves are.

We have also learned about the features of interesting animals that live in the different oceans, and created a poster with what we have learned with a partner. They have done a wonderful work, you can see some examples below. Next week, each group will be the teacher and present their animal to the rest of the class.

Health and Well-being

BUILDING RESILIENCE:
During this term we are working with the ‘Respect yourself’ block of the plan. We have been discussing how we are all unique, and the things we do to make the world a bit better.

RSHP Education:
We have been talking about how we all have different families, and how the different members of our family take care of us. We also discussed our role in the family, and how we help at home. Then they did a great job drawing family portraits 🙂

Problem Solving

This week we revised Tangrams and used our knowledge of shapes. Can you tell what we made?

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me through the comments or by writing to the school email and they will forward it to me.

Have a lovely weekend!
