Chinese New Year
We had a wonderful session learning about lion and dragon dances. We played the different instruments and practised trying to follow the beat. In class we heard the story of how the 12 animals were chosen and found out that the children are either born in the year of the horse or goat. In music we have created our own dragon music and we have done lots of art related to Chinese New Year. We have leant how to say hello and thank you in Mandarin.
CM Sports - PE lessons
The children have been enjoying their PE lessons with Mr. Knight and Mr. C. During the lessons we have been focusing on balancing and moving around each other. This week the children practised aiming and throwing.
What a wonderful art and craft day we had on Monday! In the morning we were joined by the pupils of Velmead Junior School, who worked with us to make Christmas trees. Then in the afternoon our grown ups joined us to make Christmas wreaths, Christmas lolly stick trees, Father Christmas plates and much more! The children loved sharing their art skills with everyone involved. Thank you to everyone who was able to join us.
We thought about the service men and women who died during the war. We made poppies using different materials, so that each poppy is unique.
Our First Week At School
We've had a busy week at school getting to know our new class mates and learning new routines. We have played in our outdoor environment and been sharing the resources with the other two classes. We have practised sharing and turn taking.
