Week beginning 7th September:

This week we will be looking at the story 'while we can't hug'. All classes at school will be exploring and discussing this story to hopefully, help the children understand more about the changes covid19 has made to our lives currently. It is a lovely story, I have added the link below so you can share the story at home too smiley

Tuesday 8th September - 

It was great to see you all again and see lots of happy excited faces! I know there were a few tears which is normal and it will ease. Today the children had lots of fun exploring the classroom and the outdoor area. It was lovely to have some sunshine today and water play was a big hit! We added ducks and nets and tried to see how many we could catch. Just a little reminder, please can you label any belonging so we know who it belongs to. I look forward to seeing you all again tomorrow for lots more fun!

Take care, Miss Canetti 

Friday 11th September - 

What a great first week we have had! It has been so lovely getting to know all the children and see them all settle in so well!  All the children are getting used to the routines in Poppy class such as tidy up time and handwashing. Inside today we have been painting pictures, the children were very interested mixing the colours together and creating beautiful masterpieces! We have also spent a lot of time in the garden today searching for bugs using the magnifying glasses, exploring the water and digging in the large sand pit. 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend, I look forward to seeing you all again next week smiley

Hi, I hope you all had a lovely weekend! It has been lovely to have some sunshine today so the children loved being outside playing in the water and on the bikes. This afternoon it was too hot so we had short bursts in the garden. We looked at the story "while we can't hug" and they were very fascinated by the rainbows and the colours so we created our own rainbows with paint, they look fantastic! 

Have a lovely evening.

Wednesday 16th September - 

Hi everyone, the children are doing so well coming in and are a lot more settled. We have had lots of fun in the garden today watering the plants and flowers, talking about how they grow. We also have a tadpole in our small pond and the children have decided to call it 'Freddie'. We have been very excited watching it swim, and discussing about how he will grow and turn into a frog. The children have also had lots of fun playing with the blocks, using tools and wearing hi-vis jackets, pretending to be builders. 

Please can you remember to send back your funding forms by 25th of this month otherwise your sessions will become chargeable    

I look forward to seeing you all again tomorrow.

Good Morning, 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!

Last week the children we're very excited to see that 'Freddie' our tadpole had turned into a frog. He has come out of our pond and gone for an adventure. The children discussed where they think he might have gone. Last week the children loved exploring the autumn tray looking at different leaves, acorns, conkers and pinecones. 

Our topic this term is called 'Why do you love me so much?' this week we are looking at a story called 'sometimes' it looks at feelings. We will also be drawing pictures of our families. 

Thank you for any parents who have sent in family pictures, it would be great if all the children could have one for our family display, the children love looking at these!

Have a lovely day smiley

Autumn Term Newsletter

Welcome back everyone!

I hope you all had a lovely half term! Thank you to all the parents who have sent in a family photo. If you haven’t sent one yet you can email it over to poppy@balliolschool.co.uk.  Our topic this term is called ‘is it shiny?’

We will be looking at a story called ‘How to catch a star’ by Oliver Jeffers. I will add the link below so you can share the story at home too.

Today was very exciting as we introduced our class fish to the children! The children came up with lots of names. It was hard to choose so we put the names into a hat and picked one name out. Our fish is now called Fred.

 

                   

 

 

Today we have also been creating making marks in coloured sand to create a firework picture. We discussed the sounds the fireworks make and what colours we might see.

This week the children have been making firework biscuits. We filled syringes with different coloured icing and dribbled lots of lines to look like firework explosions. Here are some of the biscuits the children made. 

 

                                             

Friday 13th November 2020

 

This week the children made some twinkle lamps (diva). We watched a video around Diwali and looked at different diva lamps. The children used clay manipulating it with their hands. When they were dry the children used different coloured paints, glitter and sequins. We have put them on display in the classroom here are some of the diva lamps the children have made. We have also been dancing to Bhangra music and used the ribbon streamers.
