Learning about shapes


This week has been very busy for the Chicks class we have learnt all about shape. We made lots of shape picture of rockets, monsters and houses. The children used the fab glitter shapes to make paths through the pretend forests and oceans. All the chicks had a shape hunt round the school and discovered lots of hidden circles, squares, rectangles and triangles.


We also finished our week with a fairy hunt at Forest School. We wore our magic crowns we made the week before and hunt for all the fairies to be their friends.

Chatterbox

Today we did Chatterbox. Leo brought in a fantastic homemade train and explained ‘I used purple to paint my train and got all messy’. Great job Leo you worked very hard. Kaiden brought in his favourite Box Troll Fish ‘He’s a box named Fish he lives down the road in a house but another Box Troll takes it’. And Lewis brought in a big robot ‘its a robot it opens and closes and it falls’. The Chicks have got really good at talking to all their friends with confidence and at asking each other interesting questions about their Chatterbox objects.

This week has been very busy for the Chicks. We started our new topic of Birthday Celebrations. We decided to celebrate Kipper’s Birthday so we wrote lots of invitations, played in the role play Birthday shop, made birthday cakes with candles out of play-doh and used constrauction pieces to make lots more cakes.

We also covered Pudsey in coins for Children in Need. Thank you to all the parents and children who donated.

At the end of the week we did Forest School. We made Fairy Crowns for when we going to the forest the fairies will know we are their friends. We collected lots of leaves, twigs and some grass to decorate our crowns.
