Welcome to our Early Years pages
We are going to use these pages to tell you all about what we are doing. You will be able to see galleries with pictures as well as exciting information.
Come back regularly to see what we are getting up to.
We had a fabulous week of celebrating Chinese New Year.
Monday - Dance in the hall. We put together movements of being a dragon, a fan, fireworks and a lion. We then got into groups and moved around the hall as Chinese dragons.
Tuesday - We learnt the story of 'The Great Race' and then retold the story in our own words using toy animals.
Wednesday - Lots of wonderful craft and maths activities. Some of the children made Chinese lanterns, while others enjoyed making their own cherry blossom tree. We even carried out mathematics by using the balancing scales to find out which animals were the heaviest and lightest. Writing Chinese numbers in the rice was fun and making our own fortune cookies out of card was tricky but we persevered.
Thursday - First we went out on the big playground and to the sound of a beating drum and tambourine we moved once again like Chinese dragons.Then we shared a feast of Chinese food and even had a go at using real chopsticks.
Friday - We finished decorating our lanterns and we all took home our own fortune cookies to enjoy.
We have really enjoyed the story of the Bog Baby this half term. We used our imagination to design and create our own fabulous Bog Babies out of play-dough. We used the i-pads to take photos of our work, which are displayed in school.
We think you will agree that our display in our classroom looks amazing! You will get to see lots of the children's work when you attend parents evening.
