A Busy Few Weeks

4.2.19

It’s been a busy few weeks in Room 7. We’ve started our visits to Hamilton Accies on a Friday and we are all having a great time! Two weeks ago we celebrated all things Scottish with Room 1 and tasted some Scottish foods, the shortbread was definitely the winner in Room 7. Our Purposeful Play Area has a Scottish theme at the moment and we are enjoying working in the Tourist Office and making castles from sand. We have a few snapshots from the last few weeks below:

Adverse Weather Activities

29.1.19

In the event that we have adverse weather over the next few weeks and the children are unable to make it into school, there are some activities that they can be working on at home:

  • RM Maths
  • Topmarks website (literacy and numeracy activities)
  • Doorway Online website (literacy, numeracy and mouse control activities)
  • Reading Books
  • Letters – use to make words, play missing letter games, etc.
  • Words – can they find these words anywhere else? Hide them around the room to find.
  • Play (cars, play doh, action figures, I Spy, jigsaws, etc.) – focus on turn taking, discussion about toys, colours, counting.

Remember our topic this term is Night and Day so any programmes related to this or articles or books that they find would also be relevant. Most importantly though…have fun!


Our Week

18.1.19

This week we have been continuing with our IDL topic and have really enjoyed the story Day Monkey, Night Monkey by Julia Donaldson. We have continued to work hard on our literacy and numeracy activities and have enjoyed working on throwing and catching during our gym lessons with Room 1.

The 3 Little Pigs

Today we listened to The 3 Little Pigs story. Afterwards we used the Duplo bricks to build our own houses. We enjoyed the story so much that we pretended to be the Big Bad Wolf and try to blow the houses down!

Websites

Thanks to everyone who came along yesterday to Help Your Child Succeed. I mentioned a few websites and have listed them below to use at home for various activities:

www.topmarks.co.uk  

This website has a variety of literacy and numeracy activities which your child may enjoy engaging with.

www.doorwayonline.org.uk

This again has a variety of literacy and numeracy activities but also has activities to support fine motor development, such as the moving targets game.

learnenglishkids.britishcouncil.org/en/songs/brush-bus

This is the song we use during tooth brushing time and it plays for the length that the children should brush their teeth.;

https://learnenglishkids.britishcouncil.org/…/topics/alphabet

This is our alphabet song. It’s not the same as the usual alphabet song but the boys seem to enjoy it.

 

If there are any other websites which I think will be of use I’ll post them on our page :)


Our First Few Days

It has been a busy few days in Room 7! Everyone is settling in well to new routines and working really hard on new learning activities. Here a few photos of us all in action.DSCN0565 DSCN0566 DSCN0569 DSCN0585 DSCN0588 DSCN0578 DSCN0570 DSCN0574 DSCN0575 DSCN0577


We have all had a fantastic first day at school! Lots of outdoor play today and getting to know our new classmates.

Our PE days are on a Tuesday and a Wednesday and polo shirts should be worn. Children may change into shorts if they wish.

We will post updates regularly throughout the term.
