Easter Egg Hunt

posted 26 Mar 2018, 01:40 by Google Google   [ updated 26 Mar 2018, 01:40 ]

What a wonderful last day of term! The Easter bunny hid lots of eggs in our outdoor area and we were so excited to go hunting for them! He used his magic to turn the eggs into chocolate Easter lollies and they arrived in our classroom while we had our NAPA performance in the hall. We walked in and there they were - it was fantastic! We loved our lollies!

Thank you to all the adults who were able to attend our Easter bonnet making morning! What a brilliant turnout! The bonnets look amazing and we are ready for our parade on Thursday. We hope you enjoyed the hot cross buns!

The children are going to be so excited in the morning. Look at what our clever dinosaur has done! I hope we look after the egg. What will be inside?!



Dinopants!

Our new focus text is 'Aliens Love Dinopants'! We have read the book and used our creative thinking skills to think of different plot twists. Dinosaur related vertical mark-making was fun and we have even crawled through a jungle to do some writing on our backs underneath the table (don't worry, it was covered in paper first!). 

 We have tried to imagine what dinosaur skin would have felt like and concocted our own textures! We did this by exploring and mixing various media on the creative table. There was a lot of paint, flour, sugar, sand, glitter and PVA to choose from. Such fun! To put the texture on our dinosaurs we had various tools to choose from such as spatulas, plastic knives, forks and spoons as well as different sized brushes. When it had dried, we used adjectives to describe how our dinosaur skin felt!


Aliens

Our new focus text is 'Aliens in Underpants Save the World' and we are really enjoying it! We have designed and made our own giant pants display, used junk to make model spaceships and aliens and we are loving role playing in our space rocket! We even need to wear space helmets to do our writing. Take a look at the photographs to see how much fun we are having!


End of Year Party!

The children had an amazing time at our end of year party! We played Pass the Parcel, Musical Bumps, Musical Statues and enjoyed lots of dancing! Oh, and of course we loved eating all the delicious food which our lovely parents/carers kindly donated...yummy! We all look wonderful in our party clothes too - such a memorable afternoon.


Jack in the Box Trip!

We celebrated the end of the Autumn Term with a trip to Jack in the Box! What a wonderful day we had! The children had such a lot of fun and behaviour from our youngest children at the Academy was impeccable! Mrs. Hutchinson was extremely proud, the children were a credit. Some children were a little nervous at first as some of the rope climbing and clambering was tricky but it wasn't long before they had all developed the confidence to explore independently -such a wonderful thing to witness! I think we will be talking about this special day for months to come!


Colour Week

We have loved our 'Colour Week'!  The children brought some lovely items into school from home and these created lots of opportunities for talk! We have developed our confidence too in 'Show and Tell'- we loved telling everyone about our special items! We did a great job of respecting other children's belongings and respecting each other during show and tell. 


It's Phonics Friday!

Today is Phonics Friday and it's also Anti-bullying week. We have mixed the two to have great fun talking about feelings and making play dough smileys! Thanks to those parents who stayed for our session.

 

To Infinity and Beyond

We celebrated the last day of our half term and the last day of our 'To infinity and beyond!' topic by dressing up as our favourite Disney characters! We invited parents and carers into school for Phonics Friday and then we had a busy maths day! Even Disney characters do maths!
