Hi Poppy Class, 

I hope you are all okay. Our topic this term is 'Starry Night and Winter Wonderland'. Our story last week and this week has been 'Whatever next' I have added below a video of Mrs Neal reading the story. 

Whatever Next - read by Mrs Neal

Activities you could try at home:

 

See if you can make your own rocket to go to space, you could use a washing basket, a cardboard box like the bear in the story, see how creative you can get. You might also want to pack a picnic with you to have wherever you fly to. What would you put in your picnic? Can you remember what the bear had on the moon?

 

This week in Poppy class we have been exploring moon dough. Maybe you can give it a try at home.

   The ingredients are:

  • 1 cup of baby oil 
  • 8 cups of flour 

What does your moon dough feel like? I wonder if you could make a rocket with the dough? or a moon with craters in it?

 

 

Last week we looked and talked about nocturnal animals, can you remember any of them animals? I have added a video below for you to watch, I think you will like it. 

Can you remember when we see these animals? What do these animals do in the day time? I have also added below the story 'Wow said the Owl' we shared this story last week. This owl was a bit cheeky and stayed up in the daytime, can you remember what colours the owl saw? When was the owl meant to be sleeping?

Here is a challenge for you, you might need to ask an adult for help. Can you find any different shapes objects you can use for painting or drawing round? You might have some play dough cutters, cookie cutters or maybe old toilet roll tubes that you could make a shape with. Your challenge is to make a rocket using different shapes. You could draw, paint or even cut some shapes out. 

 

                                                                      

Take a virtual tour of our classroom!

Friday 17th September -

Happy Friday everyone!  All the children are getting used to the routines in Poppy class such as tidy up time and handwashing. This week 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, we found lots of daddy long legs! We have also been having small group times where we have been singing our favourite nursery rhymes.

 Thank you to those of you who have sent the family photo the children love talking about them please keep them coming in. Also its very important for me to have your funding forms back please as there is a deadline to get them in the borough hall

 

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

Friday 10th September 2021 - 

Happy Friday everyone! I know there were a few tears this week which is normal and it will ease, the children have been very brave. The children have had lots of fun exploring the classroom and the outdoor area. Just a little reminder, please can you label any belongings so we know who it belongs to.

We are going to create a family board within the classroom which the children love to look at, please could you send in some family photos or email them to poppy@balliolschool.co.uk. 

Our topic this term is 'Me and my Community' we will be having lots of activities around our families and our feelings. 

I will update this page each week so you can see what we have all been up to. 

 

Please feel free to email or speak to me if you have any concerns. 

 

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

 

Take care, Miss Canetti
