It has been a busy week in Pre-Prep for our youngest pupils with plenty of fun and learning taking place inside and outside the classroom. From Nursery to Year 2, the children have made the most of the fantastic sunshine with lots of outdoor play.
Following on from their learning about holidays, Nursery are learning about vehicles. This week they went on a walk down to the river to see which vehicles they could spot in Worcester and practise counting the different methods of transport. Nursery have also been enjoying the warmer weather with lots of outdoor play in the sand and water. They have also planted herbs in their garden.
Reception’s topic this half term is focused around journeys. This week they have been thinking about different types of transport they knew and had travelled on. The children have also been role playing as travel agents, choosing holidays abroad and enjoying our very own sandpit in the classroom. They also visited the Pre Prep library to choose books for our new topic and went down to the river for a walk. Who knows where they’ll end up on their travels during this topic!
During Year 1‘s RE lesson this week, the children were interested to learn about the Jewish festival of Purim and how it is celebrated. The children enjoyed constructing their own noise makers which they then used to create lots of noise whenever they heard Haman’s name during the story of Esther. In Forest School the children learnt to weave and made beautiful butterflies using sticks and wool.
Year 2 have started a new topic about Kenya. They have been using atlases to find Kenya on world map and identifying the important Kenyan landmarks- both human and physical. The children looked at a picture of an African silhouette sunset scene and applied their creative writing skills and super imaginations to write an exciting opening to a story. They also created some beautiful silhouette artwork based on their new topic.
