Our 5 Senses
The children have been learning about how our 5 senses allow us to learn about what is happening around us. We spent a day focusing on the senses and had fun exploring them through practical activities. What made the day even more special was that we were joined by our friends from REA too!
Sense of touch
Sense of sight
Sense of taste
Sense of hearing
Sense of smell
The children have also been using a range of materials to make skeletons both inside and outside.
Dem bones, dem bones!
The children are learning about what keeps their body from being a blob on the floor. They have enjoyed learning songs that help them remember some of the bones we have in our bodies. We worked together to make a big skeleton.
The children continue to have fun making faces. Come and look at our loose part faces and our Mr and Mrs Potato Heads.
The children are having great fun making pictures of themselves using a range of media. Here the children had fun learning about 2D shapes as they used them to make shape people. We talked about sides and corners of each shape and are becoming more familiar with the names of them.
How am I unique?
The children have begun a new topic which will help children explore the similarities and differences between themselves and their peers. Look at the topic map below for ways in which you can support your child.
Look at some of the fun activities we have explored.
The first few weeks.
The children have spent the first few weeks making new friends and becoming familiar with the new adults in their classroom. They have enjoyed a variety of activities both inside and outside that have allowed the children to explore their new surroundings. The children have enjoyed sharing their experiences of the sea-side and are keen to tell us lots about themselves and people who are important to them.
Welcome to your child's first year at Robert Bakewell. We cannot wait to begin the next chapter in your child's education. We are very impressed with how well the new intake has settled into school. They are already showing great enthusiasm for learning as they bound through the door each morning with the happy smiles that greet us. We look forward to sharing their journey with you through our web page so please ensure you have a look at it on a regular basis.
