This week in topic we have been making mini-beast gardens. The children have had lots of fun using a variety of art materials and natural resources. They made mini-beasts, flowers and ponds. Have a look at our photos of their completed gardens.
This week in Kinder music the children have been thinking about feelings and how different pieces of music make them feel such as happy,scared or excited. As they listened carefully to a piece of classical music we could see from their facial expressions how they felt. One child said ' I imagined knights on horses and fighting dragons and dinosaurs, it was exciting.' Whilst others found it scary. They also played lots of different musical instruments in time to the beat.
Welcome to Jays!
This week we went to the allotment on a mini beast hunt. We saw lots of butterflies,ants, woodlice and spiders. We discovered that most of them were hiding under the logs were it was cool and wet. It was good fun.
in maths we have been learning about the concept of size and how to measure using non-standard units. We thought of everyday words to describe size such as long and short, small and big and some of us even said big, bigger and biggest! We measured Giant footprints, beanstalks and leaves with paperclips, cubes and coins. Some of us even used rulers!
Book Day Thursday 22nd March
As part of our world book day celebrations (be it abit late due to the snow closures) we worked with Kingfisher class . We listened to the story of the Gruffalo, acted it out and then created lots of artwork through painting and collaging and even story boarding on rolls of paper. It was fun working with the older children as they helped us.
This week we have participated in sports relief and have played dodge ball with Wrens class as well as doing various activities oiutside at lunchtime. We also do ran laps around the sports court and most of us managed to do 10 laps! We ll done to everyone .
This week Jay class have had lots of fun exploring the ice and snow. After running around and picking up the snow they decided to get spades and brooms so that the could clear the snow. We did a science experiment too. The children filled a container with snow and brought it inside the classroom. We then observed how it changed in the warmth of our classroom. It melted into water we put it back outside over night. In the morning we observed that it turned into ice and decided that it was because it was so cold.
We have been creating our own weather mobiles and wind socks. We used a variety of materials such as card, tissue paper and wool.
