Wow we are nearly at the end of our second term! This term we have covered topics of 'Hocus Pocus' which involved lots of fun, messy experiments, 'All Wrapped Up' where we looked at different weathers - experiencing them and choosing appropriate clothing, and finally we will be finishing this term with 'Ho Ho Ho' which of course will be filled with lot of christmas activities - we have ice skating planned, a trip to the snow globe and a visit from Santa himself!
We have all worked very hard this term. In numeracy we have been practicing our counting, looking at volume and have started on our 3D shapes. In literacy we have been working on our phonics - learning the different letter sounds. We have also been making lists and looking at winter poems.
For our minibus trips this term Dolphins have enjoyed going to the park! They've explored all the equipment - climbing up the large frame, sliding down the slide and swinging together on the swings. It has
all been lots of fun.
Please keep checking back, we will be putting up a few useful website links that the Dolphins enjoy.
We are having a great first term! We have been busy learning about shapes and symmetry in our numeracy lessons and looking at different traditional tales in our literacy lessons. We have also enjoyed outdoor learning this term counting different objects that we found in the playground.
Our favourite story of our 'Build it high' topic has to be 'The three little pigs'. We had lots of fun exploring the sensory story and using the fan for the 'huff and puff' of the big bad wolf! We then moved on to the 'Bugs' topic. We had grasshoppers in the class, the children had great fun watching them and telling us about them in our work. Bugtopia came to visit us too! They bought with them many different insects - even a bearded dragon!
Here's a slideshow showing what we've been busy with in term 1:
