What We Learnt Last Half Term

Myths, Stories and Legends

Another fantastic half term for the Chaffinches. We are all making lots of progress not only in our learning but in our relationships with each other.

Our topic this half term has been ‘Myths, Stories and Legends’. We have really enjoyed out story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We have listened to our story in the woods, snuggling up inside the story shelter! We have listened to the story in the classroom and we have all interacted unbelievably well with the pig and wolf puppets. We have been huffing and puffing! We have mixed pink, printed houses, painted with sticks and played with straw.

In our Jabadao sessions in the Studio we have been exploring the equipment alongside the adults but we have also been communicating to the adults that we want ‘more’ and directing the adults to what we want to play with. We love these sessions!

In Music, as well as playing some of our favourite songs and games, we have learned some new songs. We have been playing the glockenspiel; the chimes; the Indian Bells and the singing bowl. We are all able to sit for the whole session and are very engaged in the activities.

We have been playing parachute games with the Canaries, our PALS class and we have all coped very well sharing our space with other children.

We hope everyone has a very merry Christmas and wish you all the very best for 2019!
