Early Years News from Miss Robbins – 16.03.18

This week
We have been finding out lots of things about Spain. We have learnt some Spanish words and have been trying to use them throughout the day. We listened to some Spanish music and Mrs Flatt taught us a Spanish song. We watched a flamenco dancer and made some paper fans. We learnt all about the Spanish architect ‘Gaudi’ and looked at some of his work around the city of Barcelona. We had a go at making mosaic lizards like the one he made for the park in the city and we even designed and use the big building bricks to make a famous Spanish church. We cooked and tasted Spanish food… omelettes and the yummy churros! It was lovely to see you last night at our curriculum evening and hope you enjoyed looking at our wonderful work.
Next week
Next week we will be starting our work to do with Easter. We will be finding out and about how Christians celebrate Easter. We will be making our own books about things that we are interested in and reading them to the adults and our friends in the class. In maths we will be learning about problem solving.
For one of the activities we are doing next week we would be grateful if you could send your child in with a hardboiled egg (or 2!). Thank you.
After Easter we will be holding a Reception reading and writing workshop with practical ideas to help you help your child with these subjects at home. I will be sending out a letter about this shortly. For one of the activities we require empty ‘Pringles’ tubes (large). If you have any we would be grateful if you could send them in.
