Something fishy has been going in the depths of rabbit class, as we have embarked on a fishing expedition to form sentences for colourful semantics! Each pupil caught a different coloured fish to form a ‘who’, ‘doing what’ and ‘where’ sentence before reading it aloud to the class.
Article 30 – You have the right to an education which tries to develop your personality and abilities as much as possible.
Rabbit class have made heroic progress in music, we have been working on Superhero theme music. Everyone worked in a group to play their instruments before each child led the group playing along to their favourite theme tune (while dressed up as their favourite superhero, of course!)
During maths (measurement) Rabbit Class have continued to think about hot and old. They all went on an aeroplane to Jamaica! It was very HOT! So, we stopped off at the cafe and we had some COLD ice-cream to cool us down. We developed our #personaldevelopment skills and #communication skills by making choices about what toppings we wanted. Saaim said the ice-cream was yummy! Tyler said the ice-cream was melting.
They all got back on the plane to England where (yes you guessed it) it was COLD and raining. So we wrapped up warm…put the kettle on!
As part of Children’s Mental Health Week , Rabbit class extended their gestures of kindness to our adopted care home De Brook Lodge. During the week, the Rabbits made their own soap and thought the residents at De Brook Lodge would feel happy if we gave them as a present!
For Number Day Rabbit Class went to the supermarket to find numbers in the environment. We each had a number that we had to look out for. We found numbers on food, clothes, shoes, DVD’s, books and on birthday cards! We also thought about numbers when we had to pay and Tyler could point to the 10 on the £10 note. Staff in the supermarket asked the children what number they were looking for and they could tell them and show them.
During History we have been learning about Guy Fawkes. The children enjoyed acting it out. Coming to a cinema near you soon…
Rabbit Class have enjoyed scooping out the pumpkin seeds and then carving them. The children wanted to wear gloves at first as the texture was soggy and wet. But then lots of children decided to explore it with their hands and quite enjoyed the texture and smell. Do you like our pumpkins? Are they scary?
Article 29 -Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full. It must encourage the child’s respect for human rights, as well as respect for their parents, their own and other cultures, and the environment.
It is important that children get the opportunity to develop their fine motor skills. Why not explore playdough by watching and joining in with a dough disco video like the one below.
Explore a range of dry and wet media such as porridge, rice, flour, shaving foam, bath foam soap, or gloop etc. Encourage your child to make a range of marks/ writing patterns, e.g. ————- XXXX IIIIIIIIIIIII OOOOOOOOO
Enjoy singing rhymes, action songs and number songs together. Why not make your own instruments using things that you can find around the house, pots pans, spoons, boxes etc.
Have some fun by going outside to run and jump and as the weather changes jumping in puddles is a great way to get some exercise. If you don’t want to get wet why don’t you join Joe Wicks on YouTube for some simple exercise or just put on your favourite music and DANCE!!!!
