We are always yearning, to increase our learning

🎶 Music 🎶
In music we have been finding the pulse. We have also been practising playing the pulse using our bodies and glockenspiels.
Hello Yellow - World Mental Health Day
We all really enjoyed 'Hello Yellow' day. It was good to talk about how sometimes we might feel sad but not know why. We learnt Eeyore often felt sad and how his friends, Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Kanga and Roo, were there for him and helped him feel a bit better. We then all thought of ways we can help people feel better about themselves before making Eeyore a new home.
🏀 Wheelchair Basketball 🏀
We all enjoyed revisiting wheelchair basketball and had lots of fun practising our skills. Nat makes it look so easy.
🌳 Forest School 4 🌳
This week, after special request, a tyre swing arrived and provided lots of fun. Today’s session saw us reflect on our magic spot before hearing a story about Bears best birthday present - a stick. We explored what we could do with a stick. We discovered we could dig, drag, make music, play pirates, cast spells and much more.
Once Upon A Time ...
We have been working hard planning our own gingerbread man stories using our own characters. We have been learning to describe our character with adjectives checking we use capital letters and full stops in our sentences.
🌍 Geography 🌍
The gingerbread man has been busy out and about in Egremont exploring the many human and physical features it has. We have also been creating land use maps of Egremont using aerial photos to show where you find houses, shops and open spaces.
🌳 Forest School 3 🌳
This week was all about shelters. First we created our own to keep us dry then we helped the woodland little people make new shelters after their homes were destroyed many years ago by a dragon. Some children even created a dragon trap.
We are busy learning about keeping passwords safe and have been practising logging on using our passwords. We have also learnt to save our work on the computer.
In PSHE we are busy thinking about what makes a good learner. Today we shared our ideas about when we like learning. Lot of us said we like learning when we are with our friends, outside and in the forest.
In DT we have been busy exploring materials ready to make our own felt faces. We have been practising making hair.
🌳 Forest School 2 🌳
This week the little people of the forest left us a present which we had to find. We made a forest friendship bracelet to show we cared for the forest. Once in the forest we collected 5 things then had to hide them just like a squirrel 🐿. After that we spent time exploring, creating and having fun before having to find our things again. Some of us lost our stash while others forgot where they hid them because they changed their hiding place.
🌳 Forest School 1 🌳
We all enjoyed our first forest school session. We spent the time enjoying the new mud kitchen, balancing, collecting, observing and jumping and searching for the gingerbread man.
The Gingerbread Man
We are busy learning the story of the gingerbread using our talk for writing story map. Today we were thinking of questions we have about the story.
Run, run as fast you can..
The gingerbread man escaped with his friends and are keeping us on our toes. Look where he has been ...
