The Ducklings have been learning how to throw underarm at a target. It is quite tricky to remember to put the opposite leg to your throwing arm forward and to swing your arm behind you when you throw. Well done Ducklings. Another lovely day in the sun for PE too!
The children in Parrots have learnt all about looking after the environment through throwing rubbish away properly and re-cycling to protect our wildlife. They produced some amazing information posters and have talked about the different ways they can look after the environment. Well done Parrots.
The children in Parrots have been exploring different materials. They have been identifying different properties of these materials and describing them based on the properties. We have discussed properties such as: absorbent, transparent, hard, smooth, soft. The children enjoyed playing the 'Guess What is in the Bag Game' where children described an object based on its properties and by using this information the others guessed what the object was. Great fun - you could play this at home.
The children in Parrots have been developing their fundamental skills and have been learning how to throw and catch today in PE. They have all participated well and are developing these ball skills well. Great work Parrots!!
