Learning and Growing as Children of God

Weekly News

Spring 1 - Week 1

 

This week the children listened to the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. They made a giant beanstalk using spaghetti and cheerios, and some even challenged themselves by using small beads as an extension of the activity. The children were encouraged to count the cheerios/beads as they carefully placed them through the spaghetti. Children showed super concentration and fantastic hand-eye coordination! Also, we worked in our small groups to do some ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ maths. The children are getting much better at counting and recognising numbers to 10.  

 

Also this week, the children did a science experiment to see which objects sink or float. Before dropping the object in the water, the children held them in their hands to feel if they were light or heavy and then predicted whether the object would sink or float. Well done scientists!

 

What a busy first week back we’ve had!

 

Please note: Due to the current Covid restrictions, there will be no stay and play sessions this half-term. Thank you for your understanding.

 

Regards,

Mrs. Assenjee
