It has been a great pleasure to welcome the children back to Purple Class. We have tried to concentrate on wellbeing this week and getting the children back to enjoying school.
Our curriculum focus over this past week has been giants and dragons. We read the stories ‘Shhh’ as well as the traditional tale ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and finally ‘George and the Dragon’.
We made Giant puppets and castles:
We have engaged in small world play:
We made the dragons fiery breath!
Did you know there are lots of different types of dragons? We enjoyed describing sun, ice and garden dragons. The children created dragons and wrote sentences describing them. The children were fantastic at remembering to use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. I was so impressed with how confident the children were at sounding out words to spell.
This week Ms Francis and I have been very busy creating a nature area for the children in our Reception playground. We are always seeking to improve our outside area and we are particularly keen to source recycled or natural materials. If you have anything you no longer need and would like to make a donation we would be incredibly grateful.
Below is a list of the kind of items we would be eager to take:
Pallets, guttering, tubes, large rocks or stones, cable drums, seeds, plants, fake grass, herbs, compost, logs, tree trunks, pine cones, water pump, old pots and pans, utensils – ice cream scoops, ladles, spoons etc.
