Term 1 so far . . .
All About Me
This term we have been covering the theme ‘My Self’. The children have been taking part in activities that focus on the body, individual likes and interests and the five senses. This term your children will bring home an ‘All about me bag’. Please help your child collect a few of their favourite things to share with the class. We are sending home four bags a day so don’t worry if your child hasn’t received the bag yet. So far the children have been loving sharing their special things with their classmates.
The children have been having lots of fun in the doctors surgery set up in the home corner. The doctors have been busy fixing broken bones and sore tummies!
Sense of Hearing
We have been taking part in lots of listening and sound making activities. We went on a sound walk with our big listening ears and heard lots of different environmental sounds. We made a class book about all the things we could hear which is displayed on the bookshelf in our classroom. We have also been listening to different musical instruments and making our own. We have had lots of fun playing them and singing lots of nursery rhymes.
Each week we look at a different colour. In a few weeks time will begin to experiment with mixing colours together!
This term we have been looking at same and different and sorting objects into groups. We have been sorting by colour, size and other various attributes. This week we will begin to focus on number recognition and counting.
Talk for Writing
Talk 4 Writing has begun and the children are really enjoying it! We are learning the story ‘The Enormous Watermelon’. Old Mother Hubbard left a watermelon in our class that we got to cut up and eat. It was very juicy and delicious!
Sense of Sight
This week we have been exploring the sense of sight. We went on a scavenger hunt to look for different things in the garden. We found different coloured leaves, feathers, bugs, foot prints and lots of other exciting things!
