Fruit Salad - Thursday 7th February 2019
The children have designed and prepared a tasty fruit salad! They chose a selection of fruit to use and they drew what they thought their fruit salad might look like. They helped cut and prepare the fruit and they assembled their salad. We got to enjoy our work during break time and we even tried some yummy watermelon together!
After lunch, they evaluated what they thought of their fruit salads. They chose their favourite fruits and what they would change if they made it again.
We've been practising counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. I have attached some links to songs that we have used to help us practise!

We had a great time playing with the snow today! We made snow angels, made snowballs and found icicles. We also collected different sized snowballs to bring in to the classroom to investigate which would melt the quickest.
The children have been continuing to build on their yoga skills. They are fantastic at remembering our poses like 'Sun pose', 'Cow pose' and 'Eagle pose'. They have been putting them into sequences and playing musical statues with them.
We have also played 'Trampoline belly' where the children put a little toy on their tummies and focus on moving it up and down as they are breathe in and out. They were very focused so that their toys did not fall off!
We have a pose of the week that we keep in the classroom. The children choose a selection and vote for their favourite.
Our favourite pose of the week: Dog Pose
Grandparent's Afternoon - Monday 12th November 2018
The children had a brilliant afternoon asking lots of questions to their grandparents about their childhood holidays, their favourite toys and the games they used to play when they were children. The children were very surprised to learn that their grandparents only had two TV channels to watch and they didn't have a family car to get around!
The children enjoyed playing with old toys and reading old books with their grandparents. They also got to ask questions about old photos of toys and board games.
Thank you to all the grandparents who were able to attend and make it a very memorable afternoon.
