Our Learning Journey

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!

Mandarin

This week, the students learnt to count from 11 to 15. They leant how to say a phrase which combines number and measure words “个” & “只” and some objects. They also developed recognition of Chinese numbers through group games. Students learnt a song related to the numbers.

Physical Education

This week in PE the children have been learning to take turns in structured lines, with continued emphasis on dropping and catching a ball.

In swimming, the children have been learning leg kick actions and have been practising in the large pool to improve water confidence. 

Music

In Music this week, your children have explored the meaning of the lyrics in the song They can't take that away from me by George and Ira Gershwin. They have learned that words in songs are used to express our moods and emotions but they can also have different interpretations.

Continuing Our Learning Journey at Home

In EYFS we encourage children to look at the different sizes of objects and compare them.

  • Are you taller or shorter than a door?
  • Are you taller or shorter than an armchair?
  • Are you taller or shorter than a window sill?

Walk around your house and find things that are taller than you? Can you draw them on some paper? Could you take a photo of them? Could you build something that is taller than you? Who is the shortest member in your family?

We would love for you to share your work with your class friends next week.
