In Class 2 we have been finding out all sorts of information about Leonardo da Vinci and have checked our measurements against the ones from The Vitruvian Man . Our arm spans were the same as our heights.
In Year 1 we have been learning about space and what it looks like. We created some pictures for our new role play area. We looked at an image and picked out the colours that we wanted to use and then we mixed them together to create a background. Once we had done this we then created our own space rockets using different shapes and working on our scissor skills. The children were able to name the shapes they had used to create their rocket.
This morning the children in Nursery and Reception invited their parents into school for a Christmas Stay and Play.
The children enjoyed a range of Christmas activities based around the area of learning; Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding The World.
The children were then surprised by a special guest….Father Christmas!
Year 1 have been looking at the book ‘Knock Knock Open the Door’. After reading the story and discussing what animal was behind each door we then worked in groups to mind map who could be behind the last door. The children came up with some wonderful ideas including a polar bear, a bee and even a superhero! The children then wrote their predictions in their books.
This morning the children invited their parents into school for Stay and Play.
The activities were all based around the area of Communication and Language and Phonics.
We finished our Stay and Play session with Rhyme Time with the parents to celebrate National Nursery Rhyme Week!
