The children really enjoyed their trip to Barking Park to learn about minibeasts and habitats. Ruth the Ranger was very helpful and we all had lots of fun! Thank you to the parents who were able to come on the trip - we couldn't have done it without you!
Thank you to the Mummies who were able to come to our Mother's Day party. We hope you enjoyed our singing and your cards and presents. Here is why we love you so much....
A visit from Brian the snail
As part of our Minibeast topic, Miss McAuley brought in her pet Giant African Land Snail for us to see. His name is Brian. The children really enjoyed learning all about how to look after snails and even touched his shell!
Football! (The Beautiful Game)
We wanted to learn about football so Miss Hart brought in some of her son's football kit. The children enjoyed trying on the different parts of the kit and talking about football. They also looked through some books about football. Miss Hart even brought in a trophy and some medals, which everyone was excited about! Thank you Miss Hart.
We really enjoyed our visit from Courtney, who works for Virgin Atlantic as Cabin Crew. She told us all about working on an aeroplane and how she looks after 500 people! Courtney loved the role play airport in Miss Tibbles class and showed us how to be Cabin Crew! Thank you very much for coming in and talking to us.
Marble fireworks pictures!
Miss McAuley wanted the children to make some fireworks pictures and she had the idea of using marbles! The children chose their paint and put small amounts of different colours on their paper in the box. Then they put their marbles in the box and had to roll them around to get the paint to move around the paper. The children had lots of fun (and so did Miss McAuley)! Don't they look great?
Having a big space to draw makes it so much easier! It means that the children are able to spread out and use more of their bodies to help them draw. It also means that they can take up more space!
We loved making playdough and were very proud of ourselves for making the playdough that we would be using in class. Kai enjoyed mixing the ingredients together and Gustas was fascinated by what happened to the ingredients once they had been in the microwave. If you need any help making playdough, then just ask us!
We made sandwiches and they were lovely! We could choose between a ham sandwich and a cheese sandwich. We had to use the knife to butter the bread and then cut our sandwich in two. Then we had a picnic! It was lovely!
We really enjoyed our first day in Reception today. We have made lots of new friends! The time whizzed by and before we knew it, it was time to go home!
