We have been busy settling in to our new classroom and learning the names of our new friends.
We decided we needed some rules in Moonbeam Class. The rules Moonbeam Class decided on are:
- We walk inside
- We use quiet voices indoors
- We have kind and gentle hands
- We listen to our adults
- We look after our toys
- We put our hands up on the carpet when we want to talk
We also have some class targets which are to be able to say goodbye to our parent/carer without support, to be able to hang our coats or jumpers on our pegs and put our bookbags in the bookbag box independently and finally to learn the classroom rules. If we achieve these and make good choices by following the rules we collect rewards like stickers, treasure chests or our name being written under the sun.
We have been enjoying exploring our indoor and outdoor environment, we have been using mirrors to look at our face and paint self portraits.
We have had a great first half term in Moonbeam Class. We have learnt about Dinosaurs, designed our own and been on a dinosaur hunt. Our most recent topic was Handa’s Surprise and we had lots of fun writing shopping lists and going on our first school trip of the year to Sainsburys.
Every Wednesday we have Forest School with the Jolly Foresters and we have had the opportunity to roast marshmallows, make potions and whittle sticks.
We all enjoyed our celebration day ‘Children of the World’ and hope you did too!
We have been very busy during the second half our the Autumn term preparing for our Winter Show. Thank you to everybody who came to watch us. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
Everyone loved attending a circus workshop where we learnt the skill of miming and got to show off our dance moves. We have all enjoyed taking part in some ‘Maths Challenge’ days where we have used the learning environment to show off the Maths skills that we have been learning on the carpet.
Here are some photo’s to show you what we have been up to.
