In OR class this week we have been continuing to learn about people who help us. On Tuesday we had an exciting visit from an ambulance driver, James’s Nan. She talked to us about what she does, and showed us the inside of an ambulance. The children were quite interested in the job she does, and had lots of questions to ask her. After the visit, lots of children chose to paint and draw pictures of what they had seen. Some children chose to make ambulances, using junk modelling materials.
The children have really been noticing the changing colours of the leaves. This week we made some autumn pictures of trees, with the children selecting their own leaves from the outdoor area to add to their pictures.
In maths this week we have been working on adding two groups of objects together and finding the total. In phonics we have learned the sounds e, l, and h, and have been writing simple words that contain these letters. In literacy we have been reading non-fiction books about ambulance teams and doctors, and together we wrote a list of all of the items a doctor would need.
This week we have had 3 Star of the Day awards. Advi became our Star of the Day for her fantastic reading. It was clear that she had been practising at home. Henley was also given the Star of the Day award this week, for super work on his writing. He has really been working on forming letters correctly. Logan was given Star of the Day for being kind and helpful to others. On Friday Mrs. Cooper arrived with the Golden Book. Martha was given the Golden Book award for her work on Remembrance Day. She did some writing and ask lots of questions.
