My School, My Class, My Teacher










Moral conscious theme: School Rules – we spoke about how rules are important because they keep us safe and they allow us to have an environment that flows smoothly. One of our rules is that we do not run in class and that is because we could get hurt or hurt others. We also spoke about how there are rules in most establishments and not only in schools. 

Writing and Phonics: We started the year off by introducing ourselves and discussing what we did for the holidays, the children were so excited to share their stories. We also went over our letters of the alphabet (sounds and letter names).  

Mathematics: For maths we counted to 30 and in 2’s. We were pleased to know that the Squad know their numbers. We also went over our 2D and 3D shapes – they even learnt a new song that helps with this! 

Creative Art: This week was focused around settling the children and making sure that they are ready for the year ahead. They decorated their pencil holders (tins) and this is something they will use for the remainder of the year. 

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Creative Art: For art this week we completed a “what will I be when I grow up?” worksheet which will be kept for the Book of Me. We also made chef hats so that the Squad has a hat for cooking classes. We also had a free ‘messy’ play where they were allowed to use different equipment and art forms in order to express themselves.

Science and Experiments

 For our cooking class this week, the Squad did an interesting experiment where we made our own Crunchy Rock Candy, using ice-cream sticks, boiling water, food colouring and sugar. The Squad were fascinated by how the crystals were formed, once the water temperature decreased more molecules joined the sugar crystals.

For art this week we completed some lovely Easter pieces which will be taken home. They made a pop-up bunny from a cup and straws (created independently but with some guidance). They also made an Easter card which they wrote themselves and also stuck some pasta into patterns and painted it. Remember – some bunny loves you!
