Some of the children have really enjoyed digging in the mud with a proper spade.
They added water and made gloopy mud which sucked at their wellies! They took turns with the big spade and worked as a team to add water. Once they were finished they made a welly wash for their boots.
We had a lovely visit from Mr Lewis today. He taught us about using the internet safely, in celebration of ‘Safer Internet Day’. The children have been introduced to the following rules which we will talk about in class regularly. It would be great if parent/carers could support this to help keep your children safe at home. The children explored a site called beinternetaaesome.withgoogle.com and looked at the kind kingdom to support the development of being kind online.
There is lots parts to this site which can support you as parents along with parentzone.org.uk.
The children had an amazing time exploring this site with a very active and excited class. There were some very knowledgeable children who clearly have got appropriate restrictions set already.
Kingfisher Class celebrated their learning about the seasons and poetry by reciting poems by Robert Louis Stevenson, Walter De La Mare and William Blake.
The children arranged the performances themselves. They also had outfits to wear which were a refelction of the season in which their poem was based. As part of our shared learning of the seasons we looked at a painting by David Najar called Seasons Change.
We explored the playground and discovered items that we believed would help us to create 4 sections, one for each season. We will also explore the seasons as they change to continue to embed this learning.
