Even on a wild and wet day the Ducklings had lots of fun - splashing and wading through the puddles, jumping over the puddles, mixing different coloured paints in the puddles, jumping along the letters to read words and investigating which objects float or sink in the flood!
Today in Parrots, we have been learning about musical patterns. We worked in groups and created musical patterns using a variety of instruments, such as; tambourines, maracas and the triangle. We then discussed how we could improve our own patterns and each others.
The Ducklings have been showing off their phonics skills this week by applying their knowledge of the sounds that they know to read simple captions independently! Super star readers!
The Ducklings have enjoyed getting inside old electrical appliances and exploring what they can see. Future engineers and mechanics! They used the screwdrivers and pliers with care and control. We have also talked about how they mustn't do this at home and that these are old items and that they are not plugged into the electricity.
We have enjoyed exploring and handling household objects from the past. We have tried to guess what some of the strange objects are, the materials that they are made from and how they work. We also asked the question, 'Are we any better today?' We all agreed that having radiators to warm our bedrooms instead of a ceramic bedwarmer is much better!
In the sunshine last week the Ducklings enjoyed using the large glitter shapes to create their own robots. They are super at naming the 2D shapes now!
Hopefully today will be the last day of learning from home for a while! Miss Hutchinson and I are so very proud of the Yellow Ducklings though for all of their efforts whilst learning form home. Today we had more super adding, amazing phonic skills on show and fanastic robot inventions. We can't wait to see you all back in class!
Today the Ducklings have had another busy day learning from home. First they join in with live Zoom lessons with their teachers and teaching assistants and then they do their own follow up tasks. Look at all of this amazing adding using different objects from around the home, learning to read and write the letter l within words and sentences and finally reading the story of No-Bot The Robot With No Bottom, creating their own robots, retelling the story and writing all about it.
Wow! Today has been another super day of remote learning. Thank you to all of the amazing children for their brilliant work. A big well done to all of the grown-ups too for all of their support. We have been learning how to add two groups of objects or numbers together and how to write a number sentence. We have been reading and writing tricky words. Finally we have been creating our own pages for the 'That's not my robot..' story.
