We wanted to share with you some of the lovely displays that we have in our classroom. We are so proud of how hard the children in Sunshines are working.
We would like to welcome Miss O'Neill to Sunshines. She will be joining us between now and Easter as part of her teaching placement. Miss O'Neill will be posting some learning videos for you to watch at home. Miss O'Neill is very excited to get to know you all.
Sunshines Christmas Sing along 2020
We hope that you enjoy watching a short singing performance from the children in Sunshines. We have chosen a selection of some of our favourite Christmas songs to share with you. The children tried really hard, we were so proud of them all.
Christmas Dinner Day!
Sunshines enjoyed their Christmas dinner!
Christmas In Sunshines
We have enjoyed taking part in lots of different Christmas activities.
Elf on the Shelf
We had a surprise visit from two Elves sent from Santa in the North Pole. Our job is to name them and hope that they don't cause too much mischief! We have named one Elf Buddy and one Elf Teeny. They are already being very cheeky!
We finished our Space themed topic with a Purple Party. We helped Janet and Bill (Smed's and Smoo's) celebrate the birth of Baby Smoo-Smed. We made purple alien badges which we cut out to practise our scissor skills and mixed our own red and blue powder paint to make purple. We played games, ate jam sandwiches that we had followed instructions to make and had purple juice! It was lots of fun.
Children in Need
Sunshines children went spotty for Children in Need. We had lots of fun wearing our spotty clothes and taking part in lots of different Pudsey bear activities.
Today we received a letter from two aliens named Janet and Bill. They needed our help. Janet and Bill had crash landed on our playground. We carefully followed a map to find where their spaceship had landed. We looked for clues to determine where the spaceship was and searched hard to find their missing belongings. We found sleeping bags, T shirts, parts of a rocket, slime, bowls and moon rock. We are excited to find out more about Janet and Bill in the coming weeks. It was certainly an eventful start to our week! We are so proud to hear that some of the Sunshines children have continued their space excitement at home!
Diwali and Bonfire Night Celebrations
Sunshines have enjoyed finding out about Diwali and learning all about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot. We have made firework pictures using cotton buds and paint, painted Mendi patterns on hands, created chalk firework patterns outside and retold the story of Rama and Sita using the Diwali puppets.
We had a lovely time exploring our school orchard for Autumn treasures!
We have really enjoyed reading the story of Funnybones and The Pet shop. The children have acted out the story, measured skeletons using cubes, labelled the different parts of the body and learnt the song and dance 'Dem Bones'. All of the Sunshines teachers are so proud of their lovely work.
We have enjoyed reading lots of different Elmer stories as part of our Magical Me theme. We have talked about similiarties and differences between ourselves and others. We have thought about the reasons we are special and unique. We have enjoyed joining in with lots of different Elmer activities in our provision areas.
We enjoyed using the mirror to look carefully at ourselves before using black pen to draw what we could see!
Our First Week in Sunshines- September 2020
