The Enormous Turnip
The children in F2 are reading The Enormous Turnip. We have been exploring using our senses are range of different types of root vegetable alongside our focus story. We then began to use the vegetables to create pattern printing. Ask your child to tell you all about the vegetables they used.
Take a look at the photos to see what our children were investigating and the wonderful pictures they created.
World Book Day
We have had a 'booktastic' day in FS2 this World Book Day. The children have loved sharing their favourite stories with their friends and listening to a range of other stories over the course of the day. Take a look at some of the super costumes in the photos below.
The children in Foundation 2 enjoyed practicing our cutlery skills as we celebrated Pancake Day. We learned how to use knives carefully to slice our fruit, then ate our pancakes using a knife and fork. Look at the photos to see how hard we were concentrating.
We explored a range of fruit and described their texture. We used magnifying glasses to investigate where the seeds were.
We had lots of fun this week exploring ice and learning about Polar habitats. Have a look at some of the habitats we made using loose parts and polystyrene.
Chinese New Year
We have spent this week exploring how people celebrate Chinese New Year. We listened to the story of the animals racing across the river and retold it to each other during our play. We tried to write Chinese numbers and wrote our own wishes for the new year.
We compared some of the traditions with the ways we celebrated Christmas and linked it with our World Religion Day activities.
We explored Chinese food and tasted different dips, prawn crackers and ate noodles using chopsticks. Ask your child what they thought.
Our story this week was 'The Runaway Wok' by Ying Chang Compestine.
Foundation 2 had a wonderful time at their Christmas Party. They were very excited to have a special visit from Santa and his Elf who even performed a little Christmas Cha Cha! They danced, played party games and ate some very yummy food.
Foundation 2 really enjoyed their Christmas dinner. Thank you to our fabulous kitchen staff for our yummy food and party hats. It was delicious.
The Sleepy Shephered
We had lots of fun performing our Nativity 'The Sleepy Shepherd.' Thank you to all our families for being such a fabulous audience. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
The children in Foundation 2 had lots of fun during the Rudolph Run this morning. They loved wearing their reindeer antlers and noses. Take a look at the photos to see how much fun we had.
The children in Foundation 2 have been exploring the work of famous artist, Jackson Pollock. They loved getting messy using the drip technique. Look out for their works of art coming home soon.
