My Senses










Moral conscious theme: Treating our Friends with Care – we spoke about how important it is to treat others with the kind and respect that we would like to receive. We also taught them that our words can be hurtful. We need to use kind words to fill our friendship love tanks. 

Writing and Phonics: We went over our “D, E, F” letters, this included the Squad writing the letters with marks first and then writing the letters in their books. They have been getting used to using the ‘cat method’ – some letters are small; some are tall and some fall. 

Mathematics: For maths we counted to 30 and in 5s. We were pleased to know that the Squad are able to recognise the numbers 0-10. We practiced writing the numbers and also discussed the properties of a square, they pressed different items (square-shaped) into paint. Well done, Squad! 

Creative Art: This week we focused on our five senses – what we can see, touch, hear, smell and taste. We created a senses booklet where the children used those different elements to stick in spices, cut out from magazines, drew a picture and more. We know you are going to love this art piece! 

 FunFit Sports: Coach Trevor played cricket with the squad this week and they absolutely adored this – we were blown away with their skills. 

Music: Teacher Katy visited the Squad on Wednesday, and they practiced their vowel and 3D shapes song whilst she played the piano which assisted with time keeping. Keep it up Squad! 



Have a wonderful 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!
