Wow! What a busy first week in Class R! We have enjoyed getting to know all of our new children and grown ups and we’ve had such a lovely first week. Class R children have been busy exploring their new classroom and outdoor area and even had some visitors on Friday. We hope you all have a lovely weekend and are ready for another fun week next week!
Class R had another special visitor from Mr Barwise who worked at our school as a trainee teacher! Mr Barwise is a lifeguard for the RNLI and works in Liverpool where he lives. He talked to us about what the RNLI is and how important it is. We learnt about the different coloured and patterned flags that we see on beaches and in the sea that are there to keep us all safe. Mrs Evans and I were impressed with Class Rs listening, which is very helpful when learning about safety.
Mr Barwise showed us the lifeguard equipment and we even got to dress up as real lifeguards!!
As part of our ‘Let’s Pretend’ topic, Class R have been learning about different people who can help us. We had a special visit from firefighter Dean or as we know him- Edie’s daddy!
Dean talked to us about what firefighters do in their jobs, showed us a special video about Derbyshire fire and rescue and also let us try on his uniform and look at his special car!
We really enjoyed meeting Dean and learning lots of new things. Some of Class R said they would like to be firefighters when they grow up.
Class R enjoyed another lovely session of Boogie Beats at Smalley Hall residential home. This session, our teacher Becky taught us the story of the tortoise and the hare and we retold the story using song, dance and signs.
Well done Class R for being superstars as always and making lots of people smile!
Class R have got football fever!!! We are loving the World Cup at the moment and it has meant we can learn about teams, countries, flags, winning, losing, keeping on trying and being a team!
We were so excited about England winning yesterday so we set up our own penalty shootout game. The children came up with ideas of what to use for goalposts and they enjoyed trying to score goals!
Come on England 🏴😊
The children participated in a music and story session all about the 3 Billy Goats Gruff. The children learnt to sign characters and objects from the story as well as sing all about the goats. The residents also joined in, using the instruments and singing the songs; the residents loved seeing the children.
After the session, using the Derby Rocks that the residents had painted, the children went into the newly developed courtyard and found all 19 rocks. The children then had fun hiding them on the way back to school. We all enjoyed a light refreshment before heading back to school.
The children were an absolute credit to our school, they listened so well, were very polite and participated in all of the activities.
We look forward to our partnership continuing and we are looking forward to next month already.
