Oh la la!17 Jun 2022
Transition have well and truly settled into the Summer Term.
With the sunshine making more appearances, we decided it was time to enjoy our morning snacks on the paddock. We had such fun collecting all our items to take on our picnic. We also enjoyed listening to stories and had great discussions about our natural world. Following on from our listening walk last week, we took time to listen and appreciate our local surroundings.
Thursday was French Day! What a busy morning we had in Transition. It was wonderful to see all the children dressed up and we were extremely impressed with how the children were able to remember the French translation for their chosen roles! Miss Mitchem held a special Eiffel Tower making competition. We used a range of construction toys; Mobilo, Duplo, straws, small bricks and Octons. We all tried our best to construct our own versions of the Eiffel Tower.
All the children in Transition have thoroughly enjoyed exploring the new role-play area. The Transition supermarket has been the talk of the class. With produce being purchased and money exchanging hands, Transition have shown great enjoyment pretending to be shopkeepers and customers. We have also been enjoying jungle stories in the sunshine with Mrs McKeating. The parrots for our new jungle display board needed to be finished so we added lots of multicoloured feathers to ensure they can fly.
Our letter sound activity has been all about the letter sound ‘o’. Olives, octopus, orange and on are just some of the fantastic words Transition came up with.
With Father's Day fast approaching it was important we shared our appreciation by creating special cards. All children showed great enthusiasm as they decorated their cards, sharing special moments they make with their dads. We also had lovely class discussions, where we all shared ideas on what makes our daddies special.
A quick note from Mrs Carn: Thank you to those that have sent in your pictures for the Grow Your Own Project competition. The deadline is Monday, it does not matter if you have only just started. We are all on different parts of the journey, so give it a go and share your story with Mrs Carn.
