Rainbow class Autumn 2
Posted: Dec 20, 2020 by: Juliette Spencer (jspencer) on: Nursery and pre-school
We've had another very busy half term in Rainbow class. We started off the half term with a new topic, 'What's a box?'. We looked at the book 'Whatever Next!'. The children had the opportunity to re-tell this story using a range of props, and huge cardboard boxes! The children enjoyed climbing into these boxes and taking off to the moon! (We also had some really interesting other destinations!). You can see some of these pictures on Tapestry.
We then went on to the topic 'Christmas Sparkle', where we read the stories 'Stickman' and 'The Jolly Christmas Postman'. The children enjoyed collecting sticks and we used them in many interesting ways! We painted with them, compared length, bundled them together using both elastic bands and pipe cleaners, and tested them to see if they would float or sink. It was amazing just how much we could do with sticks! You can see some of these pictures on Tapestry.
After reading the story 'The Jolly Christmas Postman', the children wrote their own wish list to Santa. We also made Christmas cards for our family, and a salt dough tree decoration.
In the final week, we had our Christmas party, where we played a different game each day. Although this was different to previous years, the children had a lovely time. You can see videos of this on Tapestry.
We also practised some songs for our Christmas sing-a-long, and preformed this in the final week. I am sure that you will all agree that each child sang beautifully. You can see videos of this on Tapestry.
We wish you all a very Happy Christmas. We hope that you all stay safe, and that Santa brings you all you want. Lets all hope that 2021 is a better year!
