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.
Today the children went on their second visit to share time together with the older members of the community at Trinity Church Cafe. The children took their chicks with them to introduce to their new friends.
The children began by sharing their experience of hatching chicks with everyone.
We then all shared a story together about Dora’s eggs.
The children and adults then shared a craft activity making pictures about the story of Dora and her chicks.
To finish out time together we finished with Rhyme Time – the children chose some of their favorite Nursery Rhymes to sing.
It has been a very busy week in Reception! It has been Science week and the children have been investigating different materials linked to our story of The Three Little Pigs.
We started the week sorting different materials
In PE this week we have been performing our gymnastic skills we have learnt over the term so far.
We have finished the week by investigating the best material to make a house for the three pigs. Some children used straws to make their houses, some children used sticks, and other children used bricks to make their house. Once the children had made their houses The Big Bad Wolf came and tested them out, by trying to blow them down.
We found out that the strongest material were the bricks and the wolf couldn’t break the houses.
We have shared our Science investigations with our parents this week too!
