Congratulations to the Year R Stars of the Week!

 

This week we have been thinking about how the season is beginning to change from winter to spring. We set a challenge  to find some signs of spring in our school grounds.

 

In the Snack Shack we looked at paintings by water colour artists as our snack and chat focus. We learnt how to use water colours to paint pictures. We had a go at exploring water colours in Discovery Time. It was tricky to judge how wet to make your brush, but we soon got the hang of it!

We really enjoyed building up our gross motor muscles using the bikes and scooters – it was great fun! We tried different speeds and had to watch out for each other on the playground road!

This week at snack shack we have been developing our knife skills and learning about food hygiene.  We talked about never taking a knife without a grown up, and how to hold a knife safely.  We then worked on the skill of chopping a banana, using the claw method to make sure our fingers are safely tucked away.  We talked about why we wash our hands before we prepare food or eat a snack, and why we wash up afterwards with warm soapy water.

 

 

In Drawing Club we have had lots of fun with the book ‘Would You Rather?’ thinking about which things we prefer.  We used our phonic knowledge to write about what we could see if we chose to visit a spooky house or go on a boat.  We played a fun game of Would You Rather? and wrote about the things we would choose to eat.

In Maths we have been learning about the different ways in which we can represent number.  We played a matching pairs game, looking at numberblocks and finger representations of different numbers, and trying to find pair.

In PSHE we have been thinking about the people who are special in our families and the important roles we have to look after each other.  We then painted and drew pictures of the special people in our lives and talked about how we can look after our special people.
