EYFS have enjoyed raising money for Children in Need. We designed our own Pudsey Bears, made our own Pudsey masks and added spots to Pudsey’s bandana. Our favourite was definitely the cake sale and obstacle course.
Tonight was a special Funky Fingers because we let the children use our Kid K’nex! Nobody else in the whole school has tested our new equipment so the children had a great time trying to make different objects with the kit.
This week, we concentrated on our fine motor skills through a variety of activities. We used the peg boards, tapping shapes and our brand new tinkering blocks.
We also continued our gross motor skill development by adding cones to travel in and out of while on our scooters and balance bikes.
The session was finished off with a game of dance and freeze!
Funky Fingers Club had a fantastic time for their first meeting. In these sessions, we are developing our fine motor and gross motor skills through a variety of activities.
This week, we warmed up with a little dough disco before focusing on our balancing skills outside. We finished the session with a flipper flapper workout!
Stay tuned to see what we get up to next week!
EYFS loved the Halloween disco, we had so much fun dressing up, dancing and playing party games.
Today in Reception we have had a Funky Fingers morning. We have completed activities to strengthen our fingers so we can become super writers. Great work Reception!
EYFS had a cheeky visitor today while Mrs Hanratty was in an important meeting, Winnie the Witch. She made potions with the children, adding in slimy snots, rabbit poo, goblin wee and other thoroughly disgusting ingredients.
Once the children said their spell and added the final ingredient, they noticed that their potion fizzed. They poured Mrs Carr and Miss Corr a drink and tricked them into drinking it. They instantly transformed into cats!!! Don’t worry though, the children uttered the magic word to turn them back into teachers.
A magical day for all!
Reception strengthened their fine motor skills this week by rolling clay into a hedgehogs body and used scissors to snip spikes into the top of it. We then added a head and some eyes, we all thought our hedgehogs were super cute.
This week reception have been practising their cutting skills to build their own Scarecrows. We had so much fun making friends for Harry O’Hay and Betty O’Barley from the Scarecrows Wedding.
Reception and Year 6 were very excited to meet their new buddies. We had a lovely afternoon getting to know each other.
