Butterflies' Class Blog
Butterflies domino STEM challenge which progressed on to 'getting a marble in a cup'. The children worked well together with perseverance and patience, especially when Mrs Dyer helps and starts the dominos falling.
The children had lots of fun making their christingles yesterday morning. Christingle celebrations are named after the Christingles that are lit during the ceremony. Christingles are oranges wrapped in red tape, decorated with sweets, with a candle on the top. Each element of a Christingle has a special meaning and helps to tell the Christian story.
Over the last couple of weeks Butterfly class have been improving their handwriting using the 'squiggle while you wiggle' concept. The children make shapes with pom-poms and ribbons to music which is then replicated using pens and paper to the music. This helps to strengthen their pencil grip and hand eye co-ordination.
Today in outside play, Reception decided to play the game "The floor is lava". They created a structure themselves in order to not touch the floor. Independence and imagination was in abundance!
We were talking about Conkers with our class this morning, so in the afternoon, Mrs Dyer took us for a walk around the village to find some conkers that we could pick and bring back to school. We did lots of counting on our walk and looked at all of the nice flowers and trees.
First day back
We have had a great first day back at school and welcomed the children into Reception.
