Hoorary for Fish!

We had a super first week back in Daisy class and the children settled so well. 

Our topic this half term is animals and our first story is ‘Hoorary for Fish’.

The children have enjoyed lots of fish themed activities including counting fish in maths, playing fish bingo and creating fish art work for our display.

Terrific Tuesday!

We have loved learning all about Toy Story in Daisy class today and have been exploring activities linked to the aliens from the film.

This morning we visited the main Ladywood site to use the ball pool and light room. The children enjoyed a space themed experience in the Lightroom where they explored the interactive floor chasing planets and using the paddles to change the colours of the bubble tube.

This afternoon we made sensory bottle rockets. The children enjoyed pouring in the glitter and water and watching it sparkle. They used their cutting skill to cut tissue paper flames and shapes to decorate their rocket. 

The learning encouraged some amazing communication including children saying “rocket”, “moon” and “5 4 3 2 1 BLAST OFF”!

 

 

Pre-writing

Yesterday we enjoyed lots of pre-writing activities in class. The children showed off their ‘Dough Disco’ skills which included squeezing, rolling, poking and splatting the playdough. We then used paint brushes to copy up and down and circular movements to really warm up our arm and hand muscles. Finally the children experienced tracing their name and making marks in the messy shaving foam. 

What super engagement! 

 

Welcome to Little Ladywood!

The children have settled so well into life at Little Ladywood. They enjoyed playing with their favourite toys in the new classroom and of course loved exploring the activities in the sensory area. 

Our class story this week is ‘Peekaboo Jungle’ and the children engaged really well with the story. They especially enjoyed creating the noises of the jungle animals using the drum and sound buttons. The children created their own jungle scenes and snake craft to decorate our classroom. 

What a super first day at Little Ladywood. We are so proud of all the children!

 

 

 

#helloyellow

This week Ladywood has organised lots of lovely activities to help raise awareness for mental health. In R1 we wore yellow and did things that make us smile!

We enjoyed bubble and balloons in group, decorated emoji biscuits and made a sunflower for a school display.

This week we also had a trip to the local garden centre where we bought fish food for our EYFS fish and looked at some of the animals.

 

Incy Wincy Spider

This week our nursery rhyme has been ‘Incy Wincy Spider’. 

We counted spiders in maths by splatting shaving foam spiders and sliding spiders down the drainpipe.

As part of our physical development learning we warmed our fingers and hands up with dough disco and messy shaving foam mark making. The children then made spiders with googly eyes and pipe cleaner legs.
