Due to a child being very excited about bringing in a leaflet about a circus, followed by a lot of discussion about clowns and circus acts, the Morning Class have been engaging in all sorts of circus related activities! During PE sessions they have been practising all sorts of circus skills such as balancing on tight ropes, juggling and gymnastics. They also made lots of tickets for their own circus!
They were very intrigued when they arrived one morning to find a tray full of shredded paper and some of our puppets. We read the story ‘Bear Snores On’ which is all about animals who hibernate followed by digging through the shredded paper to find the hibernating animals.
The afternoon class have recently shown a lot of interest in playing with the small world vehicles so we started the week learning about different types of transport. The children were very excited to share how they came to school and engaged well with a listening activity during PE about different types of transport. They also used duplo to make cars which they raced along a track to see whose was fastest. While learning about different types of transport, the children expressed a lot of interest in emergency vehicles. During registration one afternoon the children took part in a quick quiz about who drives which vehicle. Using junk modelling materials, the children made boats which we tested the following day in our water tray to see if they floated or sank!
