Today, we found out about the Internet. We looked at some devices that are in our homes and at school that allow us to go on the Internet.
We talked about who we can talk to if something on the Internet upsets, scares or worries us.
We looked at different logos to see if we recognised any. We talked about what each app is used for and how we can stay safe on them. In provision, we used our fine motor skills to cut out apps to create our own tablet. We also used the Internet safely to play a number game.
Finally, we listened to a story called Chicken Clicking who we spotted was not being very safe online.
As part of our learning about Valentine's Day, we looked at observational drawings of flowers. We looked closely at the shapes and chose our colours carefully. Our concentration and attention skills were put to the test... but we did it!
This week, we read The Great Paper Caper. In this book, we found out that trees (made from wood) can be changed into paper. Wow!
We explored a range of materials, naming and describing them.
We then looked at whether they could be changed. Can we bend them? Can we stretch them? Can we cut them?
Looking closely at paper, we used folding to change the paper into a paper aeroplane. We showed good looking and listening to follow step by step instructions. The folding really worked our hand and finger muscles!
Once complete, we took the paper aeroplanes outside to fly!
For our Christmas Performance, we made our own decorations. We collaged Christmas characters using tissue paper. We used our strong finger muscles to tear, pinch and scrunch the paper and use glue spreaders to stick the paper on.
During our performance, we were very brave as there were lots of people in the audience. We sang whole songs that we had remembered, tried our best to match the pitch and perform the actions. For some songs, we even used Makaton signs throughout!
Miss Le Moigne was very proud of us!
Our learning this week
This week, we used pencils to draw a portrait of the Queen to add to our School Art Gallery.
We found out about where we belong and where our toys belong.
In RE, we collaged hearts to show and share love with others.
Outside, we have been walking and running. We had to look carefully to make sure we didn't bump into anything or anyone! Some of us changed speed and direction listening carefully to our instructions.
