In Lion Class we have loved taking part in lots of different Christmas activities! We were so excited when our Christmas decorations had been put up and couldn't believe Santa had sent us our own classroom elf, Arlo! We wrote some letters to Santa and all got a reply, plus a very exciting present, a SANTACAM. We had lots of fun talking to Santa through the camera and showing him lots of our Christmas creations (We couldn't believe Santa also sent us some snow right after we opened our camera!!). The children loved taking part in their 'Winter Walk' spotting the different signs of Winter, a big thank you to everyone that came and helped us :). In the last week we had so much fun eating our Christmas Dinner, watching a video sent to us from Santa, dancing at our Christmas party, and receiving a visit from a very special man, Santa himself!! We hope you all have a very, merry Christmas and I look forward to seeing all the children's smiling faces in January.
Superhero Day was so much fun. We enjoyed making lots of superhero crafts and testing our strength by taking part in an obstacle course. In the afternoon we played lots of games and even took part in a dance competition. Thank you to all parents and carers for sending your children in such wonderful costumes. Take a look at our photos below to see just how much fun we had!
All the children spotted it was snowing! We had to go and explore the snow and the children loved playing with their friends in the snow.
During our topic 'Incredible Me' we have been learning all about our super senses. We discovered that there are five senses; smell, touch, taste, sight and hearing. We explored how we use these senses by feeling different objects and describing the textures of them. We came up with some amazing adjectives to describe how they felt to touch! We then used our favourite sense, taste! We conducted a taste test to see what certain foods tasted like and whether we liked it or not.
This week in Lion class we have been exploring our sense of touch, taste and smell. We have used the feely tubs to feel different materials and, as a group, came up with different describing words for each one. The children also had the opportunity to taste and smell different items of food. We enjoyed recording our results about the taste and smell of the different foods into a table, although I'm not sure how we felt about the lemons!! Take a look at our pictures below.
We have enjoyed exploring the classroom during our first week as the Lion Class. We have taken part in lots of different activities and loved being back at school!
This week we have been learning to skillfully use a paintbrush to create an observational self portrait.
We needed to look carefully in a mirror paying attention to our facial features. We talked about where our eyes, ears, mouth and nose are on our face. We also looked at our skin, hair and eye colour. Take a look at the photos of us hard at work.
