Forest Schools are every Tuesday for Amber Class. The children are split into two groups and lunch will be provided for both groups on all dates. Please provide your child with warm clothes and waterproof clothes too. Please do not forget spare clothes either! It can get quite cold in the forest and can become very muddy. Please ensure your child has wellington boots with them as well as a normal pair of shoes! If you would like any more information regarding the Forest School sessions do not hesitate to talk to myself.
This week we have done lots of exciting and new activities with all our friends!
On Monday we started the week off by going to our Read Write Inc groups. We are loving the game Buried Treasure where we have to say if it is a real word or a silly word! Today we started our new topic – People Who Help Us. We learnt about the Fire Brigade today and how they can help us! They save us from fires and they wear fireproof clothes.
On Tuesday we went back to Forest Schools and have learnt even more really cool things! We had such an amazing time and we really enjoyed ourselves. We did lots of activities in the woods, we built mud faces and left them in the forest for us to see next week and we went searching for hidden treasure!
On Wednesday we enjoyed learning more about different people who help us, today it was the Police. Miss Thorn helped us take our fingerprints on the inkpads to prove that we were innocent! We learnt that the police have special dogs that help catch thieves and they are really good at sniffing.
On Thursday we continued learning about our new maths objective which is number bonds to 10! We have done so many fun activities today, such as using the numicon to find two pieces that make 10. We even did rainbow colouring to match the two number bonds together, and of course we sang our number bond song!
On Friday we had so much fun when the owls came to visit. We loved finding out new information about the owls and being introduced to lots of different types. They flew around the hall and were so close to our heads! After we had enjoyed a whole school assembly we then completed lots of owl related activities. We used feathers to decorate owls, completed some owl addition and even used clay to make our own owls. It was such a lovely day and we can’t wait to see the photograph of us with an owl on our shoulder!
Please do not forget your child's PE kit as they cannot join in without being changed for PE. Children are also not allowed to join if they have earrings in their ears. Please ensure you take out your child's earrings and bring in their PE kits.
Have a lovely weekend and see you all on Monday!
