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!
