Welcome to Kestrels Class
We have been enjoying our lovely new decking area. We were very excited to have a couple of visitors! The children decided to relocate our Grasshopper friends onto the grassy bank.
This week we have been reading Elmer stories. We made elephant biscuits.
We have had a wonderful time getting to know each other. We have been very busy making our room and the hallway look bright and welcoming.
We would like to welcome all our new families and we are delighted to see familiar faces. This term we will be getting to know each other and enjoying our lovely new classroom!
Our topic is 'Let's Begin'.
This week we are learning the alphabet. We are matching capital letters to lower case letters and making sure we can all write them correctly before the end of the year.
03.07.17 A great day outdoors!
We enjoyed the first of our 'Outdoor Learning' days.
This week we have been reading this book. We have been telling the time, doubling numbers, writing story plans, making puppets and retelling our own stories.
Learning to tell the time!
We did some drama to learn about the differences between ducks, geese and swans.
We went to the field to do some athletics and we all loved throwing the javelins.
We love our new cameras!
Mrs Bendle taught us a dance showing the lifecycle of a frog. We enjoyed pretending to be wobbly spawn waiting to hatch, tadpoles, froglets and frogs!
Today we had a very exciting visit from Slimbridge WWT. They bought a toad and a salamander for us to look at and learn about. Most of us enjoyed holding them. We can tell you all about the life cycle of a toad now too.
The children wanted the outdoor role play area to be a building site after they watched a digger destroy Hawks old classroom!
We enjoyed Forest School last term.
