PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT

In our P.E sessions we are currently learning to ‘stop and go!’ The children  will play games that will make the children look at the space around them, developing their spatial awareness and being careful around others. The parachute was also a great hit. We bounced balls and beanbags like popcorn in a pan and worked together to make sure they didn’t spill over onto the floor. This was tricky but the children used great control to ensure that they didn’t fall. We will continue to work on these and add another game called See-Saw Pull: From a sitting position, have children pull the parachute back and forth in a cooperative see-saw motion. We will do this activity while sining “Row row row your boat”.

EXPRESSIVE ARTS AND DESIGN

The children have shown great interest in using recycled materials this week. The children need to think about which materials they want to use and which tools  they can use to stick or bond materials together. Will the cellotape work best? If it doesn’t work, what else could you use? We go through so many recycled materials. If you have any empty boxes, tissue rolls, egg boxes, bottles… Please send them in as the children have great fun with these problem solving activities.

KEY VOCABULARY 

Glue, cellotape, recycled materials, roll, tube, stick, box, I need…

UNDERSTADNING THE WORLD

We are exploring wheels in our outdoor area- especially how they spin also looking at how the bikes work. If you have any old wheels at home, these can be from toy cars that have broken, bikes, scooters etc  for all age groups including adult bikes, please send them in! Much appreciated.
