During our last 2 weeks of term, Peach Trees had lots of fun learning all about the story of The Gingerbread Man and the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. I have been very impressed with the children, they have shown they can listen to a story and recount whats happens, sometimes being quite animated! Whilst learning about the Gingerbread Man we did some fun counting activities, decorating our very own yummy Gingerbread men and lots of running to see if we could run as fast as the Gingerbread man.
For the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff we introduced the story, used puppets to see if we could remember and act out the story, which the children did very well. We built bridges in the garden and pretended to be goats crossing and seeing if we could wake up the troll!
As well as all this fun learning we had PE with Mr Borg where we concentrated on our ball skills, seeing if we can roll the ball to knock over the cones, pins and see if we could score goals. We also had a go at balancing on top of the footballs, which was very tricky!
We also did some dancing and music, the children were able to follow the directions of the songs and showed some very impressive dance moves.
We enjoyed getting lots of fresh air too, using the large play equipment to test our physical skills, as well as using our outdoor area. We really enjoyed a game of 'Whats the Time Mr Wolf' with Miss Parkhouse!
To end the term we had a Book Character dress up day of fun and made some yummy Easter nests to take home.
What a lovely term we have all had and I am so very proud of all the children
Looking forward to seeing what we learn about during Term 5!
What another busy week we have had in Peach Tree Class!
We have been busy learning all about Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The children really enjoyed making bears from paper plates and Goldilocks characters. We also learnt about opposites and compared soft and hard as well as big and small. We used play dough to see if we could make a bears body. We had a really fun time during PE with Mr Borg, finding out how good our ball skills were by throwing, kicking and rolling the footballs. We demonstrated really good listening!! We managed to fit in some music too, we enjoyed playing the claves to the songs and did some very active dancing, following the directions the music told us. Then on Friday we met up with our friends from Pear Trees and went on an exciting walk to the woods to look at the different textures and also to see if we could spot the 3 bears or Goldilocks. We then sat and had a biscuit and a rest after a very busy week!
Well Done Peach Trees, you are all such Superstars
Welcome back Peach Tree Class and a very warm welcome to our new starters, it's lovely to have you join us. We have had a busy first week back.

Hello Peach Tree Children, today's fun activity is a cutting activity. I know so many of you enjoy using scissors, perhaps you can try this with your grownup at home. Remember you can share your home learning via the class email. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mz-fG-yPT4I
Charlie wore his listening ears while walking around his house and garden. Charlie could hear birds, cars, his pet guinea-pigs and his dog playing with his dog toys. Charlie also watched the number 1 song on YouTube, singing along, saying the numbers and naming the different items that were being counted. Fantastic learning Charlie, Well done :)
Joseph used his listening ears to identify different sounds on his walk, he could hear birds, lorries and traffic from the motorway. Joseph also went on a shape hunt around his house, he found a rectangle door, circle wheel, square buttons and an oval jewellery box

In the meantime I have uploaded some ideas for activities you can do at home with your grownups. Please share some of your learning via the class email email@example.com.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
Welcome to Peach Tree Class. We are in a new temporary class and have welcomed some new children who have settled in really well. I thought I would share some photos of the fun activities the children have participated in.
This week some of the children in Peach Tree class were able to work on their number knowledge during our family worker time. Once they had rolled the dice and counted the spots and they then completed actions such as jumping or clapping which corresponded to the number they had rolled.
At the end of the week the children were able to experiment with their dance moves whilst listening to music.
During the week the children also were introduced to a range of musical instruments which they explored and experimented with making sounds alongside developing their listening skills. We discussed what the instruments were called and the children were able to demonstrate how to produce different sounds.
Last week the children who come in the afternoon had their first PE lesson with Mr Borg in the hall and those that participated earlier in the week were able to demonstrate some of the skills they had already learned.
We had our first PE session with Mr Borg in the hall. We are learning how to find a space, follow instructions and move around the space carefully. We had lots of fun using the cones on our heads whilst travelling in different ways. What a brilliant first session.
This week we have introduced daily exercise into the routine of each session. This means the children run 3 laps of the playground. During the year this will slowly increase to challenge and develop the children's fitness levels. Lots of the children are already very speedy.
Peach Tree class have been enjoying their school lunches in the dining hall. They have a dedicated area with their own dining furniture to encourage early independence skills. The children have a choice of food options every day and they are encouraged to try a wide range of meals. They are already excellent at using cutlery and they have their own school water bottles which help to keep them hydrated. There are lots of empty plates at the end of dinner time and lots of requests for second helpings!
