After a lovely long Christmas break, our children are back and raring to go! It was fantastic to see everyone again and to hear all about their Christmas holidays and visits from Santa - there were lots of excited children full of tales this week!
This week, we began our topic Wheels, Wings and Other Things! Over the next half term we will be reading stories about different types of vehicles and doing lots of transport related tasks!
We started by reading Dig, Dig, Digging and Tip Tip, Dig Dig, two books that the children really enjoyed. The tuff tray was full of digger related fun...
The children loved scoop, scoop, scooping and dig, dig, digging!
There was also some great mark-making and gross motor play when we got the cars and ink pads out...
There was some great phonics practice and children enjoyed getting a bit messy with our paint covered a-a-apple and the letter 'a'.
On Thursday, we met Miss MacBean who will be working with us as part of her SCITT teacher training course. The children are very excited to have another adult in our class to play and learn with.
And finally, how cute are these play-dough models made by Nasya? There's a dinosaur, a bird and a snowman! Super work!
