‘What Have We Been Up To?’

Spring term 2019

This term we are looking at different vehicles and shapes. We have looked at cars, lorries and trains, with a walk to Templecombe train station where we linked in road and train safety. Shapes looked at so far are squares, circles and rectangles.

We celebrated Burn’s Night with a taste test of Scottish haggis and learning about the Scottish culture and even doing some country dancing to bagpipe music.

We also celebrated the Chinese New Year (Year of the Pig) where the children made a dragon’s head and did a special dragon dance to music.

The children also enjoyed making a volcano in the science fun activity and cosmic kids yoga is a real hit!

For the second half of the term we are exploring mini beasts and pond life. We are also concentrating on numbers 1-10.

We had a visit from Zoo lab, where Ranger Dan brought in some mini beasts for the children to look at, touch or hold and took them on adventures through his story telling. These included a snake, centipede, cockroach, guinea pig, tarantula and a colour changing scorpion!

The children enjoyed making pancakes for pancake day, helping with the ingredients and choosing their own toppings. Also the children dressed up for world book day as all sorts from princesses to heroes and looked great.

Coach Jon, from Dinky Tennis, continues with us, teaching the children lots of skills such as balancing, coordination, gross motor skills, working together, listening and much more! As a result this will see the children develop by playing sending and receiving games (mastering Dinky Tennis!)
