A trip to Pegasus Theatre!
Robins and Kingfishers went on a coach to the Pegasus Theatre in Oxford to see "Margot's Magical Winter Wonder Party"! The play was based around the last two years from the perspective of a child and how Margot felt during the lockdowns and changes in her life, with a wonderful festive twist! The children absolutely loved it and there were lots of opportunities to dance and join in! We were absolutely blown away with how brilliantly the children were, and made all of the staff very proud.
We really enjoyed finding out about the festival of Diwali. We listened to the story of Rama and Sita and then ordered the story using pictures and wrote some of the story in our Literacy books. We made clay divas and tasted some Indian food.
Off to Space!
This week we have launched our new topic, 'Off to Space!' We have been looking at the Solar System and how the planets fit within Outer Space. We have been practising recognising and naming the planets, and also made our very own using shaving foam, paint and card. It is safe to say that Robins and Kingfishers are loving their new topic, and are very excited about learning lots more amazing Space facts!
Look at our fantastic writing! We explored all about firework night, the traditions behind it and also the noises that fireworks make. We wrote some fantastic descriptions about Fireworks and the different noises you would hear at a display.
Fitness for all day!
Robins and Kingfishers had a fantastic day celebrating Fitness for all. The day started with a HIIT workout from Mr Jackson. We did squats, burpees, sit ups and lots more brilliant exercises. We worked so hard and felt very hot and tired afterwards- the sign of a good workout!
After that, we joined Mr Walton on the astro turf; we all took part in a relay in teams where we had to collect cones and dodge different hoops on the floor.
We had a fantastic day and really enjoyed both talking about how to stay fit and healthy and the exercising!
The first few weeks of school!
The children in Robins and Kingfishers have settled into life at Eynsham so well this term. We have started our topic of "All about me" and have so far created fantastic self portraits, explored our different senses, named parts of the body and spent lots of time talking about what makes us special.
We have also spent lots of time in our outdoor area where so much of our fantastic learning takes place. We have been building dens, practised our writing, explored early number and developed our confidence when riding the bikes!
We have looked at both phase 1 and 2 phonics where we have been recognising initial sounds and forming some letters independently. We are also showing lots of progress with name writing too!
We are all looking forward to the rest of the term, especially our Stay and Play session on Monday 18th October (1.30-3.00pm).
