Last week, the children observed 10 eggs hatch into baby chicks. This week, the children helped to look after and care for the chicks. They gave the chicks food and water, made sure their brooder was clean and cosy by changing the bedding and even gave some of the chicks a little cuddle.
This week we looked at the work of Courtney Mattison who’s artwork uses shells. We then thought about the UN goal to conserve and use sustainably the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development
We used sand, shells, glitter, stones and glue to do our own versions of this.
We looked at videos and images to see how our waste has been affecting the oceans and we talked about how to stop this.
To demonstrate how the irresponsible use of plastic can damage our oceans, we then stuck plastic rubbish onto our canvases and displayed them in the hall for the Art Exhibition.
Watch this video to see our project and to think about looking after the oceans.
It has been great to welcome our new Nursery Children to the Class and see our older children looking out for them and helping them settle in.
We have enjoyed starting our new topic and role-playing in the garage.
We have again practised our turn taking skills whilst sharing the bikes. We are developing our gross motor skills through this as well as balancing on the obstacle courses we have built.
Our RE story was about the friends that brought a paralysed man to Jesus for him to heal. Jesus healed him so he could walk again because he was touched by his friend’s faith. The children discussed how Jesus could do this, giving answers such as “he is magic”, “he is God” he has super powers”. The children made lego houses and people out of pipecleaners to re-enact the story .
