Happy Christmas from Zebras class
Elephants' Christmas Play
Elephants enjoyed performing our Christmas play - Humph The Camel. Here are a couple of the songs from the play. Humph!!!
This week Lions started their maths unit on shape. The children enjoyed making their own Christmas wrapping paper by drawing around a range of 2D shapes. They children created pictures using the shapes and then labeled the shapes they used.
This week Elephants have been learning about Diwali in RE. We visited the Plough Arts Centre in Torrington to watch a play about Diwali called Rhia and the Tree of Lights. Back in the classroom we continued our learning of Diwali and we designed, drew and painted our own Mehndi hand patterns, Rangoli patterns and Diva Lamps to celebrate 'The Festival of Lights'.
Zebras enjoyed learning about the real life superhero Florence Nightingale. The children made soldier and nurses hats and then enjoyed the experience of being in a hospital ward from the Crimean War where they had to bandage and look after the injured soldiers as well as making sure it was clean.
This week we also enjoyed visiting Pip and Jim's church to look at the christmas trees and sing some of our Christmas songs.
Florence Nightingale Day
Last week the children in Lions class learnt about a real life superhero, Florence Nightingale. The children were really interested to learn about Florence’s life and tried to think about what it would have been like to live in Victorian times.
The children transformed themselves into nurses and soldiers by making hats and lanterns. The children then immersed themselves in a Crimean War Hospital role play. They pretended to be wounded soldiers that the nurses had to bandage up. They also had to clean the hospital to Florence’s high standards by getting rid of all the dirty dressing and rats, and use clean equipment.
