The children enjoyed a visit from the school guinea pigs, Pumpkin and Spice!
In literacy, we have been listening to lots of different stories about King, Queens, castles, Princesses, dragons and knights. The children have enjoyed reenacting the stories and dressing up in crowns and dresses. The children has also been working hard on their phonics and reading.
This term in numeracy, Poppies have been learning about 3D shapes. They have also learnt about handling data where the children used smarties to make pictograms. The children have also learnt about length and height. They enjoyed making really tall towers using the wooden blocks and findings objects around the classroom to measure against Dot's height.
Kings, Queens and Castles.
This term, our topic has been Kings, Queens and Castles. We have loved learning about the Royal Family and listening to lots of different stories about princesses, dragons, knights and castles. We have decorated the Queen's knickers, gone on a bus tour around London and made castles from junk modelling. Each week in cooking, we made different parts of a cream tea and then on the last day of term we got to have a afternoon tea with our friends in Daisy Class!
This term, Poppy Class were able to go swimming and for some of our children this was the first time that they have been swimming with us here at Red Kite! It has been lovely to see the children's confidence grow each week. During our swimming sessions we have been singing lots of songs and play games too!
