We were in the hall today doing our first physical development session. We were lucky enough to have Mr Palmer, one of the Premier Sports coaches, teaching us for our first session. We began playing the bean game where we moved around the hall in different ways, negotiating space to make sure that we dont bump into each other. We then use beanbags to practice our balanciing skills. We first balance it on our heads and then balance it on our shoulders and then our arms. We had a fantastic time and can not wait for next week. 

 

We have had a magical time celebrating Christmas in Sunshines. We had a visit daily from a very cheeky Elf who enjoyed causing mischief in our classroom! We performed the production of 'Our First Nativity' to all our parents and we had lots of fun taking part in Christmas themed activities. 

 

We enjoyed watching the production of The Selfish Giant by the theatre company Riding Lights. 

 

As part of our topic on People Who Help us Lauren, a dental nurse from Finkle Hill Dental Practice came to talk to us about ways to keep our teeth healthy and happy. We found out the best way to clean our teeth and how our diet can help keep our teeth strong. The children brought their toothbrushes to school annd after chewing a purple tablet the plaque on their teeth showed up. The children could then see excatly where they needed to brush their teeth. The children  had a great morning and learnt lots.

Emily's mum kindly came to visit us to talk to us about her job as a nurse. The children enjoyed asking lots of questions and loved looking at some of the equipment Emily's mum uses in her job. 

We had lots of fun wearing spotty clothes raising money for Children in Need. We took part in the Joe Wicks Big Morning Move, we iced biscuits, had a bun sale and completed lots of fun Pudsey bear activities in our provision areas.

We had a lovely time sharing our learning with our family members.

 

Tadcaster Fire Service came to visit as part of our People Who Help Us topic. We enjoyed looking inside the fire engine, spraying the hose and looking at the tools that the firefighters use.

 

We have loved trying out the new balance bikes that we have in school with Mr Dunhill 

 

 

We are all doing really well in Phonics. We are enjoying learning lots of different letter sounds and have had lots of fun in small groups sorting objects into the inital sound. We are beginning to segement and belnd sounds now to read and write words. 

 

As part of our work on the story of The Little Red Hen we learnt to retell the story using actions. We know the story very well. We then tasted lots of different types of bread including Brioche, Naan, Ciabatta and Pitta bread. We described them and collected data to find which was our favourite. 

We then followed a recipe to make our own bread rolls. We had lots of fun making them and eating them was even better!

 

As part of our maths work on 2D shapes we had great fun hunting for shapes in our school environment. We found lots and lots of different shapes.

 

We had a fantastic carpet time this morning. We carefully followed instructions to make jelly and then once it had set we got to eat it. We created a brilliant bank of adjectives to describe it. It tasted delicious!

 

As part of our work on the story of Supertato we enjoyed printing using potatoes. 

We have had a lovely first morning in Sunshines. We are enjoying getting to know each other and playing in our new classroom. 

To finish of this half terms Superhero topic we had a Superhero day! All children and adults came dressed as a Superhero. We had lots of Supergirls, Captain Americas, Wonder Women and Spidermen. We started our day with a Superman dance workout to get us all warmed up. All children had a fantastic day and enjoyed completing a number of activities including; a timed obstacle course, making Superhero smoothies and making their own Supertato.

Today Sunshines were lucky enough to take part in a balance bike workshop. We learnt how to use a balance bike safely, manoeuvring in between cones, under apparatus as well as going over ramps. We had races to see who could go the fastest and who could balance with feet of the ground for the furthest distance. All the children loved the workshop, enjoying improving and then showing their balance bike skills.

Sunshines had a brilliant Science Week. We learnt about the journey of germs, how they spread and how far they go when we sneeze! We made posters about when and why we need to wash our hands. We also looked at the journey of a pineapple from farm to shop as well as the jourey from potato to crisp. Following on nicely from our spring topic we read 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and looked at the journey of a caterpillar to butterfly.
