Home Learning for Spring 1

14/01/22 - This week in PE, we have been learning how to complete a range of activities including leg lifts, burpees, knee lifts, step ups, jogging and speed bounce. The children worked in teams and then moved around each activity.

18/01/22 - We have had lots of fun in maths this week exploring weight and capacity. We have learned key vocabulary such as heavy, light, heavier, lighter, full, empty and half full. As part of our practical learning experiences, we have created monster milkshakes, following an instruction such as "pour in the milk until the cup is full." The children enjoyed trying a milkshake at snack time too.

24/01/22 - Today the children have been learning all about what makes a pair and what makes a matching pair. The children have talked about how we have a pair of hands, a pair of eyes, a pair of lips. They have also talked about the things we wear that make a pair such as shoes, gloves and socks. The children played matching pairs games with winter items and also found the matching pair to different socks.

31/01/22 - National Storytelling Week - The children enjoyed dressing up as a word. The children explored lots of storytelling opportunities including sharing stories, listening to a story with an adult and reciting their favourite parts of books.

02/02/22 - The children have been learning the story of the Chinese Zodiac. We used masks to retell the story of how the animals raced to cross the river. The children then wrote the story using the pictures as prompts.

03/02/22 - The children have been developing their fine motor skills this week through using the scissors to cut paper and then fold the paper in alternating ways to create a dragon. Through regularly using scissors, children develop their hand-eye co-ordination and muscle tone in their hands which in turns supports the development of early writing and reading.

04/02/22 - The children enjoyed tasting a range of Chinese food during snack time. This was a very social occasion and the children all sat at one long table and were able to talk about their likes and dislikes as well as recapping what they have already learned about Chinese New Year.

07/02/22 - The week we have continuing our learning about Chinese New Year and the year of the tiger. The children used a range of collage materials to create their own interpretations of a tiger. The children carefully selected the materials and the tools they needed to create their tiger. The children were able to develop their pencil grip, scissor skills, hand-eye co-ordination and use their knowledge of shapes and lines to enclose spaces to make a representation of a tiger.
