During our PE lesson today, Beech Class enjoyed exploring a range of apparatus. In between each piece of equipment the children had to find different ways to travel around the hall. As we have been learning lots about dinosaurs, most of the children chose to travel like a dinosaur, using gross motor movements.
Today Beech Class discovered a range of Dinosaurs that had been frozen in ice. We discussed how ice is formed and together came up with a plan to free the dinosaurs. The children came up with ideas of places where we could place the frozen dinosaurs and predicted what one would free the dinosaurs first. The children chose to place one of the moulds outside, one in our classroom, one buried in the sand and the last mould to be hit with a hammer.
Beech Class had so much fun researching Dinosaur Bones and Fossils. The used ‘Kiddle’ a child friendly search tool to find images of Dinosaur Bones and Fossils. They then made their own Dinosaur Bones and Fossils out of salt dough. Each team carefully added the flour, salt and water and discussed language related to capacity. Each cup of ingredients needed to be full before adding it to the mixing bowl.
Today Beech Class have had so much fun. They started the day watching Mr Marvel and then had a visit from Father Christmas! This afternoon we had our Christmas Party where we played lots of games and sung Christmas songs. Even Eddie the Elf joined in!
Yesterday Beech Class walked so sensibly to the local church. They listened to the Christmas story and sang lots of songs.
A huge congratulations to our budding actors and singers aka Ash and Beech class. They looked amazing in their costumes and did everybody proud.
