Our PE day is Wednesday. Please send your child in their PE kit (shorts/jogging bottoms, white t-shirt, Fleet Infant School sweatshirt and outdoor shoes).
Our Library day is Wednesday. Please return your child's library book in their plastic library folder to school on Wednesday or before if they have finished enjoying their chosen book.
The children have had some interesting ideas about what they'd like to learn about in our class. We discussed about what our role play could become. To make a fair decision we had a vote and the most popular choice was a toy shop. We then discussed what they'd like to learn about and the children chose to learn about toys.
The children were very keen to talk to us about their own toys. Thank you for letting your child bring a toy from home to share with our class. Each child told the whole class about their toy and loved using an iPad to take their own photograph of their toy.
We had a special visitor come to tell us all about Chinese dragons and lions. We all played instruments to wake the lion up. We had to make lots and lots of noise!
Two of us dressed up as the lion and danced around the hall. We danced with ribbons and loved making music.
Seeing the Chinese dragons was fantastic! Lots of us held them and moved around the hall. Each dragon was guided by one of us carrying the pearl. The dragon's head was quite heavy.
This half has been very busy indeed and we have learnt lots of new things!
We learnt about why we celebrate Remembrance Day on November 11th each year and why we wear poppies to help us think about people who lost their lives in wars and their families too. We enjoyed making our own poppies and selected which materials we wanted to use.
Our First Weeks at School...
The children are experiencing lots of new activities at school. They have been busy learning in our classroom and outdoors. They have enjoyed Music, PE and visiting the our school library to select a book to share with you at home.
