We have been learning about Barnaby Bear and his travels around the world. We began the week by learning about London and we know it is our capital city. We have learnt some famous landmarks including The London Eye and Buckingham Palace and we know the Royal Family live there. We learnt about Spain, India and Japan and what their different foods are, clothing and beliefs. We even learnt to count to 10 in Spanish and Japanese!
We had a ride on our role play tube train, made red phone boxes, made blossom trees, origami fish and designed kimonos. We also made a passport and decorated Indian elephants.
We learnt to tell the time to o'clock and half past, wrote a postcard from Barnaby Bear about his travels and made a mini London Book.
Our theme this week has been "Space." We have loved reading Whatever Next and seeing Baby bear have a picnic on the moon with his friend.
We have watched a live feed of the International Space Station and seen the astronauts on their space walk! We watched some videos of astronauts in the space station with no gravity! We guessed what would happen when they tried to eat, drink, brush their teeth and guessed how they slept in space. We were very surprised how they lived and where amazed when Tim Peake played Ping Pong with a bubble of water!
We have learnt about emotions and what emotions are good and bad. We created a picture of a "Happy Jar" with items that we could look at to help us feel happy. We know who we can ask to help us if we are feeling negative emotions.
We have continued with Read Write Inc Phonics and have written a list of things we would like to take into Space using phonics to help us. In maths we have been counting and ordering numbers to 20 and have been subtracting. We listened to the song "5 Little Aliens" to help us."
We have had a lovely first week back at school and have been really excited to see our friends after such a long time learning at home. We definitely missed them and have enjoyed spending time together again.
We have been learning our new routine and been talking about the changes to our classroom. Our topic has been We're Going On a Bear Hunt.
We have been painting pictures of bears and our family. We have been using compare bears to add and subtract to find the answer. We have also done some Yoga and enjoyed following We're Going On a Bear Hunt! We ordered pictures from the story and wrote some sentences about our favourite part of the story. We labelled pictures of the bear and wrote a descriptive sentence to describe him. We had Circle Time to discuss how the bear was feeling at the end of the story and how we could help him, and our friends if they are feeling sad.
Our first week back was really fun, and I am so proud of the Fabulous Flamingos, they really are FAB!
Please see below for some resources to support children with SEND during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although things are not normal for us at the moment we have to remember that it wont always be this way and we will all be together again soon. So, just a short message to you all to stay safe, be kind, be happy, be the amazing children that you are and make everyday awesome. Missing everyone lots and sending massive hugs to you all.
This has become a unique time in history and to remember this time I have attached a workbook to make a "time capsule".
There are pages to add information about you and your family, your community and other events and interests.
I hope you take some time to complete some or all of this so you can look back at it in years to come.
I hope you have all managed to access your Seesaw account to see the different activities posted every day. Every Monday I will post a grid with activities you can do throughout the week related to the topic or a particular skill. You can complete these any time and they are just like the provision activities we have around the classroom each week.
It has taken me a few days to get to grips with using Seesaw but please let me know if you can't open a file or access an attachment I have added.
If you would like any further information about how to respond to the activities I post, please follow the link to the Seesaw site for further information.
Miss Garratt has also recorded a video to talk you through completing and submitting activities which is attached below.
Hi Fabulous Flamingos!
I hope you are all keeping well, spending lots of time with your family and having so much fun! It has been such a long time since I have seen you all and I am missing you so much! It is very different being at home so much and has taken a lot of getting used to.
I hope you have been enjoying some of the activities I have posted on our class blog. I have had some lovely photos and messages from some of you and it is great to see your learning at home! I would love to post some of the photos on our blog so everybody can see what their friends have been doing at home so please email them to school!
I will be writing less on our blog from tomorrow and your activities will now be on SeeSaw. You can still complete some of the activities I have posted on this blog too if you would like to, and you still have your learning packs I sent home. I hope you enjoy some of the activities I send and have lots of fun learning with your family. I will try and post a phonics/literacy and maths activity each day and there will be some other activities linked to our topic and for other areas of the Early Years curriculum.
Having lots of fun with your family is really important so if you can't complete every single activity every day please don't worry. Making lovely memories is what is important now and family time should be cherished!
I really hope I can see you soon. I am so proud of all of you and I cant wait until the Flamingos are back together again.
Lots of love from Miss Clementson
As a school, we are committed to ensuring your child gets the best possible education that we can offer. The current circumstances are proving to be a bit of a challenge for us all and we know that education is quite difficult at the moment whilst we are facing this pandemic.
With this in mind, we have subscribed to the online platform ‘SeeSaw’. SeeSaw is a platform that allows teachers to set home learning for each child in their class.
Over the next few days, you will be receiving an email (with an attachment of the document below) that provides you with more information about how Seesaw works and how we are going to use it as a school. You will also receive your child's log on details in this email. Please look out for this arriving in your inboxes.
As of Monday 27th April 2020, all learning and activities will be placed on Seesaw and not on class blog pages. Although we will continue to post blogs regularly, we will not be using them to the extent that we have done over the past few weeks,
Many thanks for your cooperation and understanding.
