Welcome to Sapphire class page.
We are a class of 9 happy boys. We have 3 adults in our room, the teacher Hannah, Louise and Jane. We are based at Ganneys Meadow site and come to Elleray every Tuesday to use some of the facilities.
We love nothing more than exploring with our hands whether it being paint, sand, water or mud! We enjoy lots of physical activities, being outside and getting creative. This autumn term we have enjoyed lots of Halloween and Autumn craft and also learning about ‘Little Red Hen’. We have loved getting festive for Christmas too. We have started looking at a story about a snowy day.
Watch this space for photographs of our learning journey.
This term our topic is 'Traditional Tales' and we have been having fun learning the story 'The Three Little Pigs' and 'Billy Goats Gruff' and also celebrating Chinese New year. We enjoyed experimenting with bricks, sticks and blocks to try and blow down the pigs house and we made our own houses for the pigs. We loved playing in our sensory bins that were full of straw, sticks and bricks and finding the pigs in them.
For Chinese New Year we made cherry blossom trees, spring rolls, tried Chinese food and made lanterns. Check out our pictures to see all the fun we have had!
Whilst we were learning about 'Billy Goats Gruff' we made bridges, experimented with objects that float and sink and then made rafts for the goats.
In maths we have enjoyed nursery rhymes to help our counting and counting activities and also learning our shapes and colours.
