Spring Fair

Hi everyone,

In preparation for ‘Spring Fair’ on the 22nd of October, R/1MS and R/1AM have been allocated the ‘Second Hand Stall’ for the day and will be asking for parent volunteers to help throughout the day during different time slots. You will find the sign up sheet on both classroom doors! 🙂

Thank you for your cooperation!

“The Play Investigations”

Good morning all,

The students went on exploring through our investigations today, challenging their thinking and exploring their creativity through their 100 languages in investigative play. Students challenged themselves through; play dough play, lantern making, creating their own wallets, spring painting, creating potato people, pretend play and block construction.

Throughout our learning, we all showed care and respect for one another, and shared all our creative learning together! Have a look below! 🙂

R U Ok?

The 14th of September marks the annual ‘R U Ok? Day’. This morning as a class we discussed what the day means, if we see someone upset we should be asking them if they are ‘Ok’. Lara spoke about how we should be asking people if they are ‘Ok’ everyday rather than just today!

Have a look at the video we discussed below!

We then spent time building our own support networks of people we can go and talk to if we are feeling upset 🙂

Remember it is okay to speak out if you’re upset, and the most important thing we can do, is ask someone; ‘R U Ok?’

 

Volunteers

Hi everyone,

Just a reminder if you would like to Volunteer within the classroom and help on excursions, all you need to do is fill in a volunteers package which can be collected from the friendly staff in the front office! 🙂

If you have any questions relating to this, do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Kind Regards

Ashlee and Matt

What toy will you design?

As part of our unit on ‘Movement’, students this afternoon had the opportunity to design their own Toy! In our investigations recently, students have explored how certain toys move whether it be push, pull, fast or slow. In pairs students used their creativity and imagination to create a toy of their choice, being able to explain how it works and the movement it takes.

Have a look at our designs below!

Let’s Investigate!

Hi all,

Today the students continued exploring their investigations through sharing their learning, discussing and challenging each other to extend their learning. With the weather being picture perfect, we took our learning outside and enjoyed the beautiful outdoors! Have a look at our fun filled learning below! 🙂

Investigative Play with REQ

The students had the chance to explore a range of provocations with Miss Quiqley’s Reception class in the Centre! Throughout our time together students were sharing, exploring, questioning and overall having endless amounts of fun with one another, sharing all their learning together! Students also had the opportunity to visit the Fish Farm with Mr McCarthy.

Have a look at all our happy faces below! 🙂

Numeracy Investigations

Exploring our numbers, making shapes, questioning patterns, buying items with money and much more in our Numeracy Investigations!

Literacy Investigations

Hi all,

Today the students explored their literacy investigations. Students used their growth mindset and persisted with the provocations set out to engage in. Provocations included, making words with shaving cream, making play dough letters, white board writing, reading, exploring literacy activities on the laptop.

Students were in a flow of learning during this time and shared their learning with their peers.
