PE coaches, measuring, kites and toys!
Holly Class have been really lucky to have recently had specialist PE coaches come in to teach dance and also another one to teach tag rugby. The children have been thoroughly enjoying having these coaches in and improving on existing skills as well as learning lots of new ones! Here are some pictures from our dance sessions when we had a Mufti Day.
In English we have been looking at the story Dogger by Shirley Hughes which the children have been very excited about. We have done a lot of writing and thoughtful discussion about lost toys and our feelings and experiences which has helped the children with their ideas. They are building up to their own made up version of Dogger in the coming weeks.
In Maths we have been looking at measuring in centimetres as well as weighing in grams which the children have thrived on. They are becoming very confident using rulers and thinking about half measurements and adding lengths together. Here are some pictures of a measuring activity we did very recently in one of our maths lessons. The children had lots of different masking tape on their tables and they had to use their rulers to accurately measure them and some were longer than a 30cm ruler so they had to partner up! It was great to see them working so collaboratively.
During our Continuous Provision afternoons we have covered a lot of foundation subjects; one being Design and Technology. The children recently did a D&T topic on Kites and they had the most amazing fun at the end of the topic where they made them and flew on one of the windiest days we have had for a while - perfect conditions and the children’s faces say it all!
