Some of the PSHE, Motional Theraplay activities that we have taken part in this week.

This week we read the story of 'The 3 Billy Goats Gruff. One activity we did was to create our own troll faces. Which troll face do you think is the scariest?

We completed a PE lesson with Mr Richards when we practised sending and receiving the foam javlins.

This week our focus text has been Jack and the Beanstalk. Whilst reading the story as a class we joined in and used different voices for the different characters. We practised our sentence writing by retelling parts of the story in our own words and thought about what each character might say.  During Maths we placed the beanstalks in size order measured how tall they were using cubes. We used chalks and finger paints to make pictures of our own beanstalks and planted some runner beans so that we can watch them grow in class over the next few weeks. Let's hope they were runner beans and not magic beans!

This half term our focus genre in English is Fairy tales. We will be reading a selection of different tales in our English lessons as well as during sharing these stories with an adult during our reading sessions. We will be learning about the different characters that appear in fairy tales, settings and what type of things can happen in fairy tales. 

Have a look at the power-point to find out more about fairy tales and can you guess the fairy tale from the clues?

Try to think about what is your favourite fairy tale and why? 

During one of our activities titled, 'All about me,' we made funny face biscuits. We followed the instructions to create our own face biscuits but the most enjoyable part was eating them or taking them home.  

Developing our fine motor skills during a dough disco session.

We have been getting to know our friends whilst taking part in structured play.

I would like to say a big welcome back to all the children at Willow Grove, especially the ones who are now part of Team Cherry! Myself and the staff in Cherry class look forward to meeting you all in the very near future and to start our learning journeys in Years 3 or 4 together.


Please keep an eye on our class web page as we will be uploading photos, work and information to keep you all informed about what we are getting up to in class. If you have any comments, questions or suggestions then please let us know by contacting us at school.


Take care, stay safe and see you all soon.heartsmiley
