Sunshines Classroom 

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.

 

Miss O'Neill

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. 

 

Merry Christmas

 

 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! 

 

                  Purple Party   

 

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.

                           Balance Bikes                             

We had great fun practising our balancing skills on the balance bikes and scooters!

 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. 

 

Space Landing!

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.

Orchard Visit

 

We had a lovely time exploring our school orchard for Autumn treasures! 

Funnybones

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.

Elmer

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.

Magical Me

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
