Children worked cooperatively to weigh out and mix ingredients for their chocolate chip cakes. This activity develops turn taking skills as well as recognising numbers using the scales.
Our first PE session
Last week we had our first PE session and visited the park. The purpose of this first session was to get the children initially used to changing into their PE kit independently. We then observed the children’s climbing and balancing skills on the apparatus.
Regular PE sessions are scheduled for Wednesday afternoons but please ensure PE kit is in school at all times as unforeseen changes in routine can cause changes to the timetable at short notice, thank you.
The children arrived at Forest School this week to find an 'x' that marks the spot! they immediately began digging and found gold and jewels!!
We had lots of pirate activities from parrot bird feeders to pirate tree cookies; the children sawed and created, found life in the pond and climbed trees to be on lookout! Plenty of imaginative play as well as learning new skills!
Buccaneers first cooking session
On Friday the children used letter cutters to identify and stamp the initial sound of their name in the biscuits we made.
This was also an opportunity to talk about the importance of washing our hands.
Children supported each other to locate numbers on the scale and weigh ingredients, developing team work and friendships, as well as practising taking turns.
Here are some of the things our new class have been enjoying in their first week of school.
