Today we had our Values Day and we focused on 1 of our 6 core values; love. We thought about what it meant to love and show love, we read and acted out the biblical story of The Good Samaritan, we spoke about who we love and why and throughout the day we completed some lovely activities linked to the value of love.
We have had a busy week learning new sounds during our phonics lessons.
Blue Class were very excited to share photographs with one another of when they were a baby, toddler and now. We ordered them chronologically and identified things we could and couldn't do when we were a baby but what we can do really well now.
This week in PE we have been thinking about jumping. We worked hard to ensure we bent our knees and swung our arms.
This week we will be thinking about the celebration , Diwali; the festival of light. We read the story of Rama and Sita and acted out eating our favourite meals, spring cleaning our homes, buying new clothes and giving presents to our friends like how some Hindu's celebrate Diwali. We then made clay diva pots that are currently drying ready for Thursday where we will place candles inside the and light them. We are very excited.
Magical maths! This week we have been thinking about more and fewer as well as finding one more and one less than a number to 5.
Wow, what a busy day!! This afternoon, Jack Rutter, a Paralympian footballer, visited us at the Infant School to share his inspiring journey with us all. Belinda helped run the circuit of exercises and we had great fun completing leg drives, spotty dogs, star jumps and push ups for one minute each. It sounds like a short amount of time but my goodness it was hard work! We had the best time celebrating the event with the rest of the school. TEAM PRESTBURY! Many thanks to Jack for coming and encouraging us to follow our dreams no matter what life throws at you. We will strive to do our best in everything we do.
We have been thinking about bonfire night this week and why it is celebrated. We discussed the importance of staying safe when watching fireworks.
Life Bus! We had great fun meeting Julie, Sam and Harold the giraffe. We learnt about the different parts of our body and how to keep healthy and safe. Harold phoned us and told us he felt sad. We each spoke to Harold and told him what we do to cheer ourselves up, he told us that he was super happy again and wished he could join Blue Class.
Marvellous maths! We have been using a cherry model to partition numbers to 5 to find 2 different parts. Miss Blay thought we were super clever!
As we have been thinking about autumn, we decided to make some autumn crowns to become the King or Queen of Autumn. We had to select our leaves carefully as some were so crispy and dry, they just fell off!
This week in PE, we transformed into cars and practised zooming along the road. We then practised travelling in different ways up and down the road before finally becoming bridges and tunnels.
Following our autumn hunt yesterday, today we spent the afternoon thinking about features of autumn and created lots of lovely crafts.
This afternoon we all got our wellies on and headed outside in 3 groups. Each group had a checklist of things they needed to hunt for linked to Autumn; brown, yellow and orange leaves, conkers, pine cones, squirrels, bare trees which we discussed meant having no leaves, fungi and berries. We had lots of fun looking high and low to spot the features of autumn. We then played a game where we hid the conkers and pine cones for others to find.
We learnt our first ever sound in Blue Class this morning; 's'. We had great fun saying the sound with the jolly phonic action and completing activities that involved the sound 's'.
