Welcome Back to Maun Infants and Nursery!
This is the web page for Squirrel Class which will be updated with lots of news about what we have been learning as well as useful information for parents and carers. The class teacher in Squirrel Class is Miss Robinson and our teaching assistant is Miss Bennett.
The children in Squirrel Class will have PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. PE kits should have the appropriate clothing for both indoor and outdoor PE as they will remain in school all the time. PE kits will be sent home for washing every half term. If children wear earrings they will have to be removed before coming to school on our PE days or, as an alternative, the children will have to bring their own plasters to school and be able to place them over their earrings themselves.
Water bottles should be clearly labelled with your child’s name. They will stay in school all week and then sent home on Fridays for a good clean. Please make sure they come back to school on Monday morning.
Multi-skills at Maun
The children in Squirrel team have really enjoyed practising new multi-skills and games within our PE lessons. Take a look at some of our learning, we are also really looking forward to starting gymnastics soon too!
Into the Maun Forest
We have been studying the book 'Into The Forest' by Anthony Brown. On our first day into this topic we went into our school forest and noticed that there had been clues hidden within the trees. Each clue reminded us of a fairy-tale character and we soon realised that this was very similar to our new topic book. We were very excited that our school forest had become magical over night.
Have a look at some of our pictures below
Fairy-tale Character Day
We dressed up as about favourite fairy-tale characters. We planted Jack's magic beans which will hopefully grow into tall beanstalks and made our own gingerbread men.
Road Safety Day
We have been looking at how to cross roads safely and took part in a road safety quiz. We have been thinking carefully about the stop, look, listen, think rule and created posters to advertise how important this is.
Thank you so much for everybody's donations for Pudsey day. We had lots of fun dressing up in our Pudsey gear and raising lots of money for charity.
Today we had a visit from some firefighters. We explored the events of The Great Fire of London and practised the stop, drop and roll. We also looked at fire safety and how we can keep safe in our homes and compared the houses of today to those in 1666. We had the opportunity to look around the fire engine, sit inside and shoot water out of the hoses.
