What a fun week we have had exploring sound in Froglets this week. To continue our learning about different sounds we welcomed a visit from Kip Pratt. He performed using lots of different instruments and we even got to join in!
We loved trying out all the instruments alongside Kip so we thought we would continue to perform in our own Froglets band!
We grabbed lots of Ukuleles, drums and xylophones and had a go at playing quickly, slowly, loudly and quietly!
Today we have made smiley face biscuits for Red Nose Day! They look so funny… and delicious! Please remember to make a donation online to support Comic Relief and our dress up day today – the children look fantastic! ❤️
Today we had a visitor called Hannah from Resource Futures (Education Devon) who came to Froglets to talk to us all about Recycling. We pretended to be pirates, rowed our boat around the Nursery garden and found some sea creatures who needed rescuing as they were tangled up in plastic! We learnt all about why we need to take our litter home and put it in the bin to keep animals safe. Hannah shared a story called ‘Duffy’s Lucky Escape’ which was about Duffy the turtle who had to rescued after eating a plastic bag she thought was a plastic bag.
We loved celebrating world book day on Thursday! We love reading in Froglets and enjoyed dedicating a whole day to our love of amazing stories. Our Year 6 reading buddies came to join us in the afternoon and shared even more stories with us!
We had so much fun on pancake day. We had a go at making our own pancakes and tasted and smelt lemons! We looked at the ingredients that went into making pancakes and talked about our favourite toppings. At the end of the day we all had a try of some pancakes – we chose plain, lemon or chocolate ones – they were delicious!
We have had so much fun with our learning this term… we would like to show you some of the amazing provision we have had in place for your children to explore. We hope you can use these pictures to help your child talk to you at home about their learning and what they have enjoyed exploring whilst with us. We have especially loved listening to Julia Donaldson song her song about the ladybird… we laughed a lot about the mixed up noises the animals made to trick the baddies! Enjoy!
Most of you have now been able to take home a school book in your new book bags. We hope you have enjoyed sharing these at home as a family. You do not need to bring them in every day but anytime you’re ready to change the book inside. We will leave these out for you to collect at pick up time in a box on the slope up to the Lily Pad or on the table outside the Pond. Happy Reading! 📖
Lotta came to visit us in Froglets. It was great fun, throwing the ball to her and watching her run after it and then chasing to throw it again. She was very tired by the end of it and was glad to go for a little lie down back in the school office. We are already looking forward to her next visit!
