Our Classroom Displays
The Angel of the North
In the Autumn Term the Busy Bees visited The Angel of the North. The children had a wonderful time trying to make shadows and drawings of The Angel. They could not believe how big The Angel is!
The Rainbow Fish
We have read the story The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. This story is about a little fish who learns a lesson about sharing. The children used the story to help them to learn to share toys and take turns in the classroom. They also worked hard to do some lovely pieces of writing about their friends.
This Christmas the Busy Bees performed an alternative version of the traditional nativity story. This was called ‘The Wriggly Nativity’. The children worked very hard to learn the songs, the movements and their words and can be very proud of their achievement in delivering such wonderful performances.
The narrators took to the front of the stage to tell the Christmas Story.
They’ve made it, Mary and Joseph find some space in a manger ready for the birth of Jesus.
The Angels take to the stage to share in the birth of the baby Jesus.
The children wore their favourite party clothes to celebrate Christmas. They sang and danced to all of their favourite songs and even had time to welcome a special guest into school. We played some traditional party games before enjoying some party treats and snacks.
Building Bug Houses
In the outdoor area the children have worked together to build a bug house using different materials. They filled the house with twigs and leaves so the bugs could get nice and cosy. We keep checking the bug house to see if anything new has moved in.
Starting from scratch
The children had to start from the very beginning.
The children began to use the crates to help make the bug houses taller.
Nice and cosy
The children used the branches that had fallen from the trees in autumn to give the bugs somewhere to sleep.
Almost made it
The children apply the finishing touches to the bug house.
The Busy Bees have been participating in Funky Fingers every morning to help us with our hand eye coordination. The children have also been completing work in the areas that mean their arms are always hard at work.
Carefully does it
The girls make a fairy house in the outdoor garden. They have carefully positioned the twigs and sticks in their creation.
The children have been cooking in the breakfast room. The large scale movements from the shoulder and the elbow will help improve the children’s writing.
Working together in teams not only improves their communication but the lifting the blocks carefully also helps to improve their balance and grip.
Keep on rolling
The children are encouraged to roll, pat and squash the play dough as this helps to improve the way their fingers behave, especially when holding a pen or pencil.
