Here is a video that we enjoy watching at the start of our letters and sounds lessons in the morning. We love singing along whilst writing the tricky words on our whiteboards to help us remember them. The children love it so much that I thought we should share it on here.
Today we had a very exciting visit from a firefighter named Chris. We learned so much about how to keep safe and about all the people in our community who can help us when we need it. We had great fun using the hose and listening to the different siren sounds. Thank you to Gloucestershire fire service for such a wonderful morning.
In Owls class we have been thinking about all the jobs that we could do when we are grown up, there are lots and lots of jobs to choose from. We cant wait to meet the Firefighters this week and Police next week and ask them all of the wonderful questions we have come up with. To tie in with this theme Owls Class have some optional homework;
To ask family members all about their jobs and what their jobs involve.
If you do get the chance to do this at home, please do feel free to share with us on Tapestry or encourage your child to write/draw about what they have found out.
Owls class have been observing the nature in the school pond, they have spotted four frogs and lots and lots of frogspawn! They knew to stay nice and quiet around the wildlife and were very caring and considerate of the frogs.
We used timers to see how quickly we could use the chunky tweezers to pick up the water beads and fill the upturned bath mats!
Here are some photographs of the children using vegetables to create their own animals, people or monsters! We were inspired by the Mr Potato Head toy in class.
