What We Learnt Last Half Term

It’s Just a Load of Old Rubbish

Our topic for this half term has been ‘It’s Just a Load of Old Rubbish’ and we have based our activities on the story of ‘Dinosaurs and all that Rubbish’.

We have learned the Dinosaur Stomp and have joined in with the actions and have sung our counting song ‘10 Little Dinosaurs’ with the microphone. We have matched dinosaurs to pictures; been out into the woods and around school on a dinosaur hunt; digging for dinosaurs in ice and retrieving dinosaurs and bones in sand using tweezers; printed with dinosaurs and made fossils with the silk clay and played with them in the water tray.

Some of us used simple shapes to make dinosaur pictures. We have sorted dinosaurs into big and small and by colour. We have counted out the right number of dinosaurs. We have matched dinosaur pictures to the real dinosaurs on ChooseIt Maker 3.

In PE we have been following various circuits using the large PE equipment such as the benches, tables and crash mats. We have been focussing on developing our gross motor skills and following instructions and also our language associated with directions – in/on/under/over/through/across, etc. We have really enjoyed these sessions and have worked very hard to do as much as we can on our own.

On a Friday with Gill we have continued to enjoy our Cookery sessions and have been recycling containers. We have made bird feeders which are out on the playground and sensory bottles which we love playing with.

We can’t believe we only have one half term left! Have a lovely half term break.
