This week we have been thinking about what makes a good friend and how lucky we are to have our amazing friends. The children have shown great care and kindness to their new and old friends in their bubbles. We have enjoyed participating in lots of shared activities at CIP time and Bubble A has particularly loved finding snails because of the wet weather. We have talked about which weather conditions snails prefer and investigated whether they are happy to travel on chalk. We have been exploring the snails lots; roaring at them to see if they go back into their shells, placing them on the back of plastic dinosaurs whilst we take them on an adventure around the Foundation Stage garden and even having snail races. We have also spotted some caterpillars and ladybirds and thought about how to look after them.
The children have also written some lovely sentences about themselves, as well as making a book for Ms. Flanagan, which she is hoping to put up in Spencer class for the start of the Autumn term when the children come into Spencer. Ms. Flanagan visited both Bubbles today to have a chat and begin to get to know the children. I know that she is very excited about September and I have told her how lucky she is to have Heartwood class as her first proper class in our school.
You may have heard about our challenge in Bubble A… Every day during Snack time, the children have been trying to bring in a variety of fruits and vegetables to try. So far we have got quite a few different ones and Mrs. Jarvis has challenged us to continue to bring in even more different ones. So far we have had; apples, bananas, grapes, Satsumas, peas, watermelon, honeydew melon, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries, kiwi fruit, nectarines, plums, apricots, peaches, pears, red cabbage, carrots, mango, peppers, cucumbers, pineapple, and tomatoes. (I think I have them all) and by the end of the week, we want to see how many different fruits and vegetables we can have as part of our snacks. We have started to estimate what we think the final number will be.
Next week’s learning is all about celebrating. Maybe you can remember celebrating Eid, or Christmas, or your birthday! We are celebrating the end of the school year and all the amazing learning you have done. If you are at school you might play some party games in your bubble and if you are at home you might want to make a party for your toys! Read the plan to find out more!
Wishing everyone a safe and relaxing weekend.
