Mrs Wilding's Words Autumn 3
Sainsbury’s Active Kids Vouchers
A big thank you goes to all our parents who brought in the vouchers during the summer term. Maintenance very kindly shortened the 24 hockey sticks, we have 36 footballs and have half a dozen watering cans so we can ensure the physical development of your children, which I talked about last week, continues with this bright, new equipment.
This week Nursery children have made farm animal face masks, have played with small world farms, sorted animals by type and counted them, and have been learning a farm related song. They discovered how to make the colour pink and have created some lovely paintings related to the “m” sound. They all went for a walk around the school, managing the staircases really well and discovering the offices and dining room.
Transition children have been busy learning about where animals live, the location of the countries and the environments preferred by different animals. They have looked at books and listened to stories related to the topic and cut out and matched pictures of animals and habitats. They have also been trying to follow beats by clapping hands.
We all celebrated Rosh Hashanah, Jewish New Year, by eating apple dipped in honey on Thursday which the children thoroughly enjoyed.
A very big thank you goes to everyone who joined in our “Jeans for Genes” day on Friday. We raised £42.10p for this very worthy cause.
