Squirrels

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.

Each month we have an Author of the month. We find out some interesting facts about them and read their stories. Emily Gravett was our first author, and we are now enjoying listening to stories by Oliver Jeffers.
In P.E. we have been learning fencing skills. We had to show good balance and learn to travel forwards and backwards. In dance we are working hard as a team to create a dance together. We have learnt the term 'canon', which means we stand up one behind the other. 
To start our term off, we learnt how to play the steel drums. We were taught how to play a tune. We kept a steady beat and played a tune together. 

Steel Drums

We all enjoyed World Book day. We dressed up as our favourite traditional tale characters. We read the book "Honestly, Little Red Riding Hood is Rotten. We made predictions about the book. We then completed sketches of wolves in our sketch pads.

We have been using the Ipads to create repeating patterns. We have learnt to move, drag, rotate shapes to create our patterns. In art we have looked at patterns in the local environment.

We are reading the story 'Gregory Cool. We used Chatta to help us talk about the events of the story. We rehearsed our sentences out loud. We developed our vocabulary. Then we wrote a diary entry, we pretended to be Gregory and we explained what it was like to be stay in Tobago.
