This half term we are learning all about the Gingerbread Man and the children loved all of the gingerbread themed play; especially our Puddling Lane bakery! After reading our story on Wednesday we put the gingerbread man in the bakery to keep him safe but when we came back from the playground he was gone and there was a note that said "run. run, as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the gingerbread man" and a picture of soft play!! So we went on a hunt to find him but his pictures led us the whole way round the school and then after all that we found him right back in our classroom; He was hiding behind our big phonics book!! Thank you to Mrs Yeates and Mrs McBratney who helped us find him.
We have had a spooktacular week in Foundation C, with the highlight being our fancy dress party today; everybody looked amazing!
Foundation C had a brilliant time on our trip to Mounstewart today, we went for a walk to the natural play park. There we had some hot chocolate and biscuits, after snack we had a chance to play together; everyone was so brilliant at helping their friends walk across the tricky bits of the course.
This week was all about Autumn!!! We had so much fun collecting leaves to use in art, numeracy and play! We also made "ghost popcorn" bags to raise money for Ernestine our school's sponsor child so that she could go to school just like us.
This week in numeracy we have been learning all about repeating patterns. Everybody has worked so hard!
On Monday we came into our classroom to find that there was a whole army of evil pea’s on the loose!!! So we had to work as a team to try and capture them all using our special pea catching tweezers and put them back in the freezer where they belong. Just look at the concentration on everyone’s face!
P1C have been loving our topic story "Supertato.” Today we came into class to discover that the evil pea had locked our favourite character "broccoli" in the freezer!! So we had to use our super brains to save him. There were some brilliant ideas of hitting the ice with sticks and holding the ice in our warm hands (which we tried... nobody wanted to hold the ice for too long!) and then we thought about the ice being really cold so tried something hot; hot water!!! The hot water worked and broccoli was saved!!! Well done P1C
P1C had a SUPER week dressing up like superheroes in the role play area and exploring our school garden in the sunshine
P1C worked really hard to paint and decorate their superhero disguises this week! We had lots of fun looking at them on our wall and trying to figure out who was hiding underneath the mask. We are also working really hard to do good sitting, listening and looking during our attention and listening sessions! Well one P1C on another brilliant week.
This week, P1C have been learning that we feel with our hands through topic and structured play.
