On our first day, our grown ups came in with us for a short time. We explored the outside area and all the outside activities. Coco, our resourceful puppet had hidden some photos of himself so we were resourceful and searched for them. We then caught bubbles together on our big field and Mrs Sullivan talked about us being in our own class bubble to keep us safe.
We are learning to sit on the carpet so that we are safe and so that we can listen carefully. We have stars to sit on.
We have been learning to line up quickly and safely using a 'space maker' (our arm length, like a light sabre). We even practised a fire drill, lining up outside.
We played a 'parce the parcel type' game, The parcel had pieces of Mr Potato Head. These pieces remind us to use our eyes to show that we are listening, rub our ears to check that they are working, blow our noses to catch our coughs and sneezes, use kind hands and kind feet and to remember to bring our smiles to school everyday!
When we work together well as a class, we earn bees for our jar. When we have 10 bees, we play The Honey Pot game. We can also earn our own bees for our own chart.
Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers has been our class book for the last couple of weeks. We have been learning how to look after ourselves, other people, animals and our world. Here we are outside, relaxing on the grass and thinking about slowing things down to relax. Along with eating and drinking, relaxing and sleeping are important for us to keep healthy too.
We will put on some more class photos soon and have just activated Tapestry so parents, you can read more about us there.
