Week beginning 21/5/18 This week we have been finishing off learning about Jack and the Beanstalk - counting stickers to make magic beans, finding numbers hidden underneath muddy cows and reading symbols to match them to pictures from the story. We have also been getting royal wedding fever! In bucket this week we took turns being Harry or Meghan and riding in the royal carriage. We also decorated our own hats with stickers independently. The whole class joined in making red, white and blue bunting and cakes for the wedding celebrations on Friday. We really enjoyed the wedding service, especially joining in with the singing and eating the cakes! Have a great half term break.
Week Beginning 14/5/18 This week we have been learning about Jack and the Beanstalk. We had a sensory story and joined in by making the beanstalk grow, banging on the drum like a huge giant and falling asleep like the giant. We have also started stage 4 bucket and really enjoyed watching an adult make a bouncing beanstalk, before having a go at making them ourselves. On Wednesday we had a very exciting day - we explored the big playgrounds, riding on the roundabout and climbing on the new fort. It was very exciting! Then we saw a fire engine, and got to climb inside it.
Week Beginning 7/5/18 This week we have continued with work on the story of The Three Little Pigs. We made story maps and walked the pigs from house to house, we also blew mud all over pigs, using our big, bad, huffing and puffing. Thanks to the lovely weather, we enjoyed PE outside this week. We developed our ball skills, throwing, catching, bouncing and kicking. Finally, we have been continuing to develop our independence by completing tasks on our own at our workstations, and choosing items which help us to feel calm when we need them.
Week beginning 30/5/18 This week we have been learning about the Three Little Pigs. We have enjoyed sensory play with straw, sticks and bricks, and using these materials for building and mark making. We have also continued to explore our emotions and try different strategies for self regulation and calming. We particularly enjoy the weighted blanket and breathing exercises, including huffing and puffing like the Big Bad Wolf.
