This morning was our last time Reception visited Trinity Church Cafe as part of their project ‘As Time Goes By’.
The children talked about how they have grown and changed so much in their first year at school.
The children and adults made face biscuits and enjoyed eating them at snack time too!
There were some birthdays today too…it was Judith and Judith birthday. So we celebrated with a birthday cake for them and we all sang Happy Birthday.
We finished our session with our Rhyme Time. The children also performed their Teddy Bear Rock n Roll song and dance for everybody.
The children had made a card to thank Derek for letting us spend time and activities with everybody at Trinity Cafe.
During this Summer Term the children in EYFS have had music lessons delivered by Love Music Trust as part of our learning in Expressive Arts and Design. The project has been based around the character of Barney Bear at the Seaside. The children have learnt lots of different songs and music skills.
On Friday to celebrate our learning and development within the area of music Reception and Nursery went to take part in a celebration concert at Clonter Opera and a Teddy Bears Picnic. The children all had a great time and they performed in the celebration concert brilliantly.
Yesterday the children in Reception went to their next As Time Goes By session at Trinity Church.
The children took along some games to play with the adults. All children and adults enjoyed playing the games.
On Thursday, Rohan, Fay, Gaby and Oliver R travelled to Eaton Bank Academy for a Fairtrade workshop session.
They went into a DT room with children from other schools and learnt about Fairtrade and talked about how farmers in other countries need to keep birds from eating their crops. They made windmill bird scarers which they decorated with images of birds of prey faces and eyes. Ollie’s artwork was even commented on by their art teacher- well done Ollie!
The group then went to a Geography class and learnt about how items are manufactured in other countries and are then traded for money and goods with other countries. They played a trading game where they had to manufacture shapes from paper which they could sell for money or trade with other teams for equipment. each team started off with different amounts of money and equipment.
On Friday we learnt all about the difference between Ancient Greek Olympic sports compared to modern day. Rohan shared his half-term homework about Olympic sports and we then each posed as an olympic sport and then some of us guessed what sport each child was posing as.
This week the children have been busy in the kitchen with Mrs Barnes.
The children have been creating delicious snack time fruit creations linked to our story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
The children have been learning how to cut fruit with a knife safely and with control.
