Today in Beech Class we sorted Fire Engines and Police Officers from the past. Miss McGeever showed children pictures from our own visit and asked the children to talk about the similarities and differences of each picture. During choosing the children were challenged to sort the Police officers themselves into the oldest picture to the newest picture.
Today Beech Class has another visit from ‘People who help us.’ The firefighters came in to talk to the children about their job. Beech class asked some fantastic questions and were amazed by the flashing lights. The children were extremely excited about sitting in the fire engine and watching Mrs Gill get dressed up as a firefighter..
The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit from the local Police today. They came up with a selection of questions to ask them and enjoyed learning about the different equipment that they use.
Today the children sat in a circle wearing their odd socks to show that they are all different and unique. Each child then said something nice to the person sitting next to them. As a class we spoke about how it made them feel when their friends used kind words. Throughout the day Miss McGeever, Mrs Markham and Mrs Gill were extremely proud of the children for remembering to use kind words and for showing kind actions to one another. Beech class then came up with a few different ‘Mottos’ to explain that is OK to be different. This afternoon each child created a jigsaw piece because in Beech Class ‘WE ALL FIT RIGHT IN.’
Today in Beech Class we discussed ‘The Zones of Regulation.’ The children were able to talk about their emotions and what makes them feel happy, sad, tired or angry and reasons why they may be feeling that way. Each child placed their registration person into the coloured zone that related to how they were feeling. Some children also chose to express their emotions using paper plates or emotion fans.
