Tom Daley Newsletters
Today in EYFS was Science Day. We chose Floating and Sinking as a theme, and did our learning indoors and outdoors. First we predicted whether some objects such as coins, cotton wool, pencils and wax crayons would float or sink. Then we tested each object and compared results. We were correct on every prediction.
After that we went outside and investigated for ourselves other objects which float and sink. Indoors we made boats out of recycled plastic and cardboard. We had lots of fun!
Each year, 5 rhymes are chosen and children are encouraged to take part in our ‘Rhyme a Day’ challenge by singing the nursery rhymes, and taking part in supporting activities.
The 5 official rhymes for 2022 are:
The Big Ship Sails
Five Little Speckled Frogs
We will be singing these in class and posting our efforts here on our class page!
Rosie sent a letter to King saying how sorry she was about the Queen passing away. King Charles the III has written back to Rosie thanking her for her letter! How special is this? What a lovely thoughtful thing to do Rosie, we are proud of you.
Pumpkins in Daley Class!
Today we have been having lots of fun with the pumpkins Mrs Greer brought in. We have been investigating how to open the pumpkin, and how to scoop out the flesh and seeds using different tools. What will we do next with them……wait and see!
Phonics Stay and Play afternoon in Daley Class.
Today we invited our grown ups into our class to see what we do as we learn our phonic sounds, letter formation and reading skills in Reception. It was lovely to see the children showing parents round so confidently and happily this afternoon. We hope the activities set out were enjoyed by you all and that you saw how the children were thriving in their new school adventure.
Have a lovely half term break, and thank you for coming today.
Mrs Greer, Mrs English and Miss Ward.
The children in Daley class have been having fun, settling into school, exploring their new classroom and making friends!
