This week sees the last week on our topic Colours. They children have experienced various teacher led activities exploring colour in many different ways. This weeks focused learning activities have been…..
to use the unifex to decide whether the children had chosen a light or dark colour and compared with their friends.
To discuss the different colours animals are.
The children enjoyed a wonderful story “What the ladybird heard next” which involved learning rhyming strings.
The children all practised writing their name in the cursive style or worked on writing rhyming words.
The children were focusing on their hemisphere writing skills of certain letters remembering that all letters start from the grass.
The children have learned about Piet Mondrian, one of the founders of the Dutch modern movement De Stijl. The children looked at some of his best known work where he made use of rectangles and lines with bright colours of red, blue and yellow.
Our topic this half of term is the continent Oceania. “No room for baby Roo” was an ideal story for the children to listen to. The children enjoyed the story and were intrigued as different animals appeared out of the story sack. They learnt about the different types of animals you may find if you are ever lucky enough to visit Australia.
Can you see which animals we learnt about?
The children were then able to use the story board to and characters to make their own story up.
Have you ever been to the other side of the world?
This week we are looking at why and how we take care of our nursery rabbits. We spoke about the home they live in, what they need for their hutches and what they like to eat and drink. We also talked about our trip to the farm that is happening this week and how we need to keep calm, no shouting or screaming when we visit and hold the animals as we do not want to scare the animals.
The children all enjoyed a cuddle with hoppy and either stroked or gave his beautiful soft fur a brush.
Hoppy was a super star with the children, he sat very nicely and definitely showed the Holme Grange Way.
Do you have any pets at home?
The children enjoyed using the interactive whiteboard this morning to mark make. The challenge was to write their name, cvc words or a sentence. The children understand that they needed to take turns as its only one person at a time using the board. Whilst the children waited patiently the children were busy writing their words on the hemisphere lined paper.
Some super letter formation was going on, the children really enjoy using this tool to mark make.
What would you write on the interactive whiteboard?
The children have enjoyed listening to The Large Family stories during our communication activity. The children were able to listen to the story and maintain concentration. Lots of discussions happened throughout the story and the children spoke how different and similar they are in relation to The Large Family.
The children were able to tell me who the main characters were and recalled some of the events that happened in the story.
Which is your favourite story and why?
