Friday 12th January 2018 – Bubble Time!

Wren Class borrowed a fantastic bubble machine!
We all enjoyed chasing, popping and counting bubbles on Friday afternoon in the winter sunshine.
The children thought we’d made enough bubbles for everyone in Gillingham to enjoy!

Friday 5th January 2018 – Snow Time!

Wrens have given up waiting for snow to arrive in Dorset and are enjoying lots of pretend snow in the classroom! 

The children have been having lots of Christmassy fun! Mrs de Villiers sourced a small tree for the children to decorate as they pleased… It has been decorated hundreds of times! We have also been enjoying lots of Christmassy playdough fun… Today lots of the children made reindeers. Aren’t they gorgeous?

November 2017
Wren Class have been watching their baby stick insects grow over the past weeks. Today some of the children wanted to look at them more closely so we had lots of fun as they climbed over our hands and arms.

The children have been very interested in colours. They were keen to explore mixing colours and making new colours. 
So, they each chose two colours – one for each hand and did a handprint. Then they rubbed their hands together to see what would happen to the colours… And did a final handprint of the new colour.
It was lovely, messy learning.

Thursday 2nd November 2017 – Visit to Stourhead

We had a wonderful trip to Stourhead last week to see the Autumn colours. We had fun climbing in the laurel shrubs; scrunching through the leaves and finding all sorts of wonderful, colourful things to collect.

Thursday 19th October 2017 – Visit from Mere Down Falconry

The children loved having Mere Down Falconry to visit. One of the owls swooped around the hall above our heads causing great excitement.  The children asked some great questions!

Number Work

Wrens have been working really hard on recognising numbers. Orchard Park garden centre gave us some pebbles which Mrs de Villiers painted with numbers – the children have loved having treasure hunts with them and it’s brought about a LOT of number talk!

Outside Learning

Wren class have lots of fun in their outside learning space.
Trains and train tracks have been a favourite activity over the past few weeks.
