Happy Australia Day! The children had great fun making Anzac biscuits, Australian flags, aboriginal art work, learning about the animals in Australia and the country itself. A great day was had by all!
This afternoon was our outdoor learning based around Goldilocks. We read the story, sang songs and acted it out. The children had wonderful time with the three bears having a picnic, using the bears outline to collage them with natural materials and making Goldilocks necklaces out of leaves and flowers. The children also enjoyed gardening and clearing out our patches ready for planting. Thank you for a great afternoon everyone!
Alps class have been continuing their portrait theme by learning to draw Frida Kahlo. They also learned how drawing can help you calm down if you feel anxious or worried. They are all wonderful portraits!
Alps class discovered notes from fairy Freya today! We followed the rhyming clues and discovered a treat of materials to make wands with! We made fairy wands, learned about how to use them for calming breathing exercises and then made a magical spell. Out of the sky appeared feathers and glitter as Freya returned to her fairy door!!! What a day.
Out of nowhere a fairy door appeared in Alps class today! We could not believe our eyes! Where had it come from and why was it here? All questions we are going to try and answer. We are going to have an exciting week!
Happy New Year to everyone in Alps class. It has been lovely to see you all again for this short but fun week. The children have been busy learning about their mental health and ways to keep calm and relax. We have been learning breathing exercises which parents have already been very positive about. The children have been using the I-Pads for literacy and numeracy work, been reading and have continued their art with our focus on portraits. I have included all our curriculum information on the newsletter but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and speak to me at the end of the day. Have a wonderful weekend and see you all for a magic Monday!
To the wonderful children in Alps Class and their families. Have a fantastic Christmas and a super New Year. I hope you all have a great relaxing time and I will see you all for our new focus around 'Fairy Tales' where lots of visitors will be coming to see us! Look out for a fun and action packed Spring Term. I will miss you all and will see you all in 2020!!!
