Learning In School
At the beginning of this week, the children in school were so excited to share their experiences with snow! It snowed quite a bit in London over the weekend and they were sharing stories about how they loved watching it fall and building a snowman. To continue with their excitement, they made fake snow in class to feel and explore, cut out snowflakes to decorate the class and painted snowmen!
We talked a lot about what snow looked like and felt using our 5 senses which was great when we did Nicki's activity where we explored different foods with our 5 senses! We used a lot of fantastic describing words like 'sour', 'bumpy', 'hard', and 'squishy'. This activity prepared us well when we used our senses to explore hard and soft pasta the next day!
We said hello and waved at our friends virtually.
We talked about what we did at home and how we were feeling.
We sang songs together and look forward to seeing each other again next week!
The children thoroughly enjoyed listening to 'The Leaf Man' story and wondered what might happen next and how he might have been feeling. The children were inspired by the pictures and made their own leaf creations. They had to think about what they wanted to use to make their leaf pictures. We had so much fun!
