We have loved celebrating International Dot Day. We studied the work of Kandinsky and used his work to inspire our own concentric circle pictures. We have been using our gross motor movement to create giant swirls and circles. Finally, we explored dots in different ways including finger painting, using pin boards and stickers.
In Phonics this week, we have learned the sounds g,o,c and k. The children especially enjoyed playing a game using word cards. They walked around the classroom looking for a new person to pair up with. They then had to ‘Fred talk’ the words on each other’s card before looking for a new partner. Keep up the good work RFD!
This week, the Nursery children have been observing the growth on their beanstalks. They added photos and drawings to their bean diaries and used their knowledge of sounds to write small captions.
In preparation for Father’s Day celebrations, the children have spoken about their daddy during circle time activities. They loved making biscuits and name tags to give to their dad as a present.
In the afternoons, they have been practising for our assembly. They children are very excited to show you our final performance next week!
