Spring 2 - What happens next?
This half term is all about our favourite stories...
Week 1 - Celebrating the Chinese New Year
Week 2 - Elmer
Week 3 - The 3 Billy Goats Gruff
Week 4 - The 3 Little Pigs
Week 5 - The Gingerbread Man
We have lots of exciting activities to go alongside our daily tasks.
Some things for you to look out for and talk to your children about are:
Spring 1 - What are these fantastic beasts?
This term we are looking at different animals - fiction and real. We hope that you will be able to share your knowledge and enthusiasm with the children!
Week 1 - Animals that we know
Week 2 & 3 - Dinosaurs
Week 4 & 5 - Fantasy creatures
Week 6 - Pancake or Chapati
(Week 6 falls when Shrove Tuesday is celebrated and as our Ladybirds love food we thought we had to celebrate it!)
Weeks 4 and 5
Over the last couple of weeks, we have been exploring fantasy creatures, looking at the Gruffalo story in particular. All the children have really enjoyed exploring and making up creatures. They used their fine motor skills to cut tape, hole punch and then thread the wool through the holes to make binoculars. The children then went outside to try and find the monsters that left the monster slime....they had great fun!!!
On a daily basis....
We always have lots of fun in Ladybirds. Here are a few photos of other things we have been up to.
Over the next five weeks, Ladybirds will be taking part in drumming sessions. Jude (our leader) will be showing us how to make music with the djembe drum, learn new songs and enjoy making music together. Our first session was great and we look forward to the next four weeks! Take a look at our photgraphs below...
Spring 1 update....so far
We have had a busy few weeks in ladybirds since the start of the Spring term...We have been learning new skills, having visitors (human and animal!) and generally having fun at school!
