In Ducks and Ducklings class we really enjoyed our story 'Funnybones' last week so we decided to carry on reading it this week. Using skeleton puppets that we had made, we retold the story on our puppet stage and some of us made up our own version of the story.
As it is getting close to Bonfire Night, we had a class circle time talking about how to stay safe around fireworks; we all thought listening to the grown-ups was the most important thing for keeping safe! To finish off a wonderful half term, we carefully used the coloured pastels to create beautiful firework drawings.
Our teachers hope we have a super half term!
This week in Ducks and Ducklings class we have enjoyed looking at our new book, Funnybones. In the story there is a big skeleton and a little skeleton so we decided to look at size in our Maths sessions. We were fantastic at ordering things around the classroom from small to big!
Our teachers got the iPads out for us to have a go on this week and we used the timer to make sure we took turns nicely with our friends. We showed the teachers how sensible we could be and how great we are with technology.
We've had another magical week in Ducks and Ducklings class; we loved our Winnie the Witch book from last week and decided to look at it again. We now know the story so well that we can retell it to our teachers without the book!
Getting creative and making witches hats has been great fun for us, and we have loved using the hats to role-play as witches.
We are working really hard on our number recognition and have started a new activity called 'Number of the week'. Together we look at the different places where we might see the number, and the different ways to make it. This week our number has been the number 1.
We have had a magical week in Ducks and Ducklings class with our story titled 'Winnie the Witch'. Reading the story has inspired us to write potion recipes in our class spell book! We even helped the teacher to create some potions by carefully counting the ingredients into the cauldron for them. We had a lovely finish to the week with a circle time about how we might feel angry if someone changed us with magic, and how we could manage that anger. Our teachers were so proud of our grown-up ideas!
We all loved sharing our favourite books in show and share; our teachers love to see us enjoying reading!
It has been another busy week for us all in Ducks and Ducklings class. We started our week with a trip to the local church for a Harvest service. We sat and listened well, and we were really sensible crossing the road; our teachers were so proud of us!
Tuesday morning was very exciting for us as we had a 'Stay and Read' event with our grownups. We had lots of fun sharing our favourite stories, making puppets, putting on puppet shows and using the magnetic letters to make our names/words. We look forward to having more fun events at school with our grownups!
We enjoyed finishing our week looking at each other's baby pictures to see how much we have all grown.
We have had another fantastic week in Ducks and Ducklings class. This week has been a busy one: we shared who were in our families with each other, practised writing our names in the sand and made some big ears for our phonics. We are really proud of our careful listening skills in phonics and our teachers are too. We had an exciting end to the week with the arrival of our brand new sandpit and a Teddy Bears Picnic!
It was the first week of our Ducklings joining us at Birk Hill and they have settled in amazingly.
In Ducks and Ducklings class this week we sprung back into school after six weeks off. We settled straight back into our class; exploring all the exciting things in our provision and creating some lovely self-portraits. Many of us acted as the teacher!
This week we have also had some exciting visits from our new Ducklings before they start with us next week. They have had chance to explore the provision with their parents, and they have been lucky to have some of our Ducks to show them round and explore with them! We are looking forward to them joining us at Birk Hill Infant and Nursery School.
