We've had a great morning in the Wild Wood. It must have been quite a warm day as we spotted a few ladybirds. 😀🐞
Some children worked together to make slides and seesaws.
Some children used leaves to make autumn hairstyle pictures. 😊
The children had to listen carefully to instructions e.g. collect 5 things from the wood. They brought them back and counted them accurately.
Mr Ainsley's amazing fundraising has been spent quickly by Miss Thurlow! 😆 We have 2 new beebots and a Tonie box and 7 new tonies with stories and music. Thank you so much to everyone who donated. The children have loved playing with them today.
We had a lovely morning in the Wild Wood.
Some children went on a sensory walk.
They also made bird food threading cheerios onto string.
The children enjoyed making an obstacle course with Mrs Allen.
Some children also played a blind fold game to guess what objects they were holding.
We also practised carefully counting 4 objects.
Although it's only September we already had Christmas on the brain! 🤣 The children made robin hand prints ready to be turned into Christmas cards.
We had another fun morning in the Wild Wood. The children were able to find objects with smooth or bumpy textures.
They also very carefully looked for and counted three objects.
We had lots of fun build dens, making oil pastel rubbings of different surfaces, creating scarecrows and crosses from sticks and feeding and watching the chickens too!
Mr Ainsley is running the virtual Great North Run on Sunday which is a half marathon! Mr A is running to raise money for technology equipment in our classroom. If anyone is able to donate we would all greatly appreciate it and it would spur Mr A on! 😁 If you are able to sponsor Mr Ainsley please follow the link below.
The children had a great morning exploring our Wild Wood. They loved meeting our chickens can giving them cuddles!
They also chilled out on the hammocks and were great at sharing.
The class enjoyed imaginary play using objects from the Wild Wood. They also built dens, pond dipped and ate their snacks.
Mrs Smith read the story Stick Man by Julia Donaldson (who are class is named after). The children then had the opportunity to make their own stick men.
The class enjoyed their first lunch at school today. It was a bit different with the current regulations but they all coped really well. Some enjoyed fish fingers and chips followed by chocolate crunch (a firm favourite!) Whilst others brought their own packed lunch.
Please have a look at our meet the teacher presentation to find out lots of important information about Donaldson class.
