Fire fighters, Vets and Assembly

Over the last couple of weeks, the children have been getting ready for the assembly they are performing to the rest of the school and parents at the end of this week. They have taken such pride and have had such enthusiasm over learning their words and songs and we are so proud of them all.

Alongside all the preparation for the assembly the children have been enjoying the weather getting outside and looking at firefighters and vets.

Thank you for all the junk modelling it is much appreciated and all the children absolutely love it.

In maths they have been learning about shape recapping 2D and introducing 3D shapes. Beat the timer game has been one of the children’s favourites to play and has really helped them get the names of all the shapes.

In writing we have been looking at story writing with making up their own stories or retelling a story we know. Please encourage the children to continue this at home using their phonic knowledge as it is brilliant to do and we would love to see them so bring them in.

Reception have loved painting fire engines and doing some free painting too over the last 2 weeks. Look at some of our fantastic artwork.

 Within learning through play the children love the animals at the minute and have taken to building them houses.

The role play area has been a fire station and the children loved dressing up in a real firefighter uniform and role-playing putting fires out using hoses.  This week the role play area has just changed to a vet’s surgery which they are loving. The children are looking after all the animals and making beds for them.

Making beds for the sick animals.

Within construction the Stickle bricks and Duplo have been the favourites over the last few weeks. The children have been making some amazing models individually but more so within groups together using lots of different skills.

Outside the children are still enjoying making fantastic obstacle 

courses that they work together to make.

Treasure maps are a new interest and the children made and followed them to magical lands to try and find the hidden treasure.

As the weather is getting better some days we have enjoyed water play outside as well as building Dens.

This week we looked at Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday within RE. Father Michael came into school with the Blessed Sacrament (the Eucharist) and the children enjoyed looking at it and  taking a small amount of time in silent prayer and worship in front of the Eucharist.  

World Book Day was great fun the children all enjoyed it and they all looked amazing in their outfits.

Throughout the day reception had year 6 and year 5 children come and read to them which they really loved.

We all hope you enjoyed the assembly, the children worked so hard and were amazing. Here are just a few reminders.
