Take a look inside Peach Tree class

Our focus story this week has been ‘Five minutes peace’, a book about a mummy elephant just needing a cup of tea and a nice bath for five minutes on her own. The children have enjoyed lots of learning around this story in their environment and even had their grown ups in to make a cup of tea. An excellent experience, thank you to those who where able to attend today. 

Following more rainy weather Peach trees have enjoyed an eventful week outside, with lots of independent obstacle courses being built and lots of manners being shown in our cafe role play. Take a look and don’t forget our class room too which has seen a lot of artistic Peaches this week and fun. 

We had an amazing day of animal hunting in our outside play area with our grownups, searching for animals numbered 1 to 10 and marking them off on our animal sheets. There were lots of discussions between parents and children around mark making, encouraging them to form the numbers, and our weekly song 'Old Mc Donald had a farm' was heard being sung by staff and children alike. 

Thank you to all the grown ups who were able to attend, you certainly made our Peaches excited and bought our animal hunt alive.  

This week was Old McDonald had a farm week. We have been exploring farm based activities involving lots of messy play. Take a look at our classroom

Thank you so much to this Grandfather who came into Peach Trees to read them this weeks book 'Ten little Pirates'. They really enjoyed this experience with a new person reading to them, with lots of giggling and interacting. 

Ten little pirates has been our focus book this week, the children have enjoyed lots of pirate themed learning in the environment. They have explored the book together and enjoyed hearing the series including Ten little princesses and Ten little robots. 
Peaches 🍑 love to sing too and this book has given us ample opportunity to express our learning through song and dance together as well as practice our counting. 

Peach 🍑 have been working on numbers this week, learning and embedding those skills with our family worker groups. We have really been enjoying numbers 1 to 5, and exploring lots of different ways of enjoy our counting.  

Lots of action this week in Peaches. We have had Key Worker group time, bonding and learning in our smaller.  
A fun area of learning has been colour matching with our felt balls, rainbow bears and rainbow dinosaurs. The children were able to use tweezers to pick up the rainbow pieces and place them into the correct coloured bowl. 

Another fun activity was making a cube tower and announcing the colours to the children, they were then able to copy me and make their own tower whilst comparing their models to mine. Excellent observation and listening. 

The amazing Ginger Bread Man has been our story of exploration in Peaches this week. 

We have made ginger scented dough and experimented with some real ginger in our water investigation area, where the children were able to cut and grind the ginger whilst smelling and exploring its textures.  All of this along with roleplay of our story with puppets which enabled plenty of vocabulary and laughter.

Take a look at our learning. 

It’s been an exciting week this week as we have been concentrating on the book ‘This is Bear’. We have been singing about the bear, learning with a bear activity in our environment and learning new rhymes about them. Most exciting was the story ‘This is Bear’ being read in Polish by Mrs M. This was so eye opening, the children really laughed along and were enchanted by the different words, whilst recognising the tone and pictures. I’ve shared a video below.

We recognise that Pancake day is a day celebrated by most families, so with this in mind we decided to set up a pancake making station for the children to explore. We added flour, water and lemons to our investigation tray and watched as the children made beautiful de constructed pancakes. Happy pancake day from 🍑 Peach 

Look at our ‘This is bear’ activities in class. Peaches made bear faces with paints and pens, taking photos on the ipad. They then spent time using their clever fingers to pin them on a washing line placed on the carpet. This created lots of conversations and team work with the children identifying each other in the photos and laughing at their teachers.

This week has seen more super stars in Peach Trees complete their reading challenges. Excellent start to term 4. Look at their gorgeous, proud faces. 

As the weather has been getting warmer the children have been learning outside and exploring their environments. They have been testing their physical skills through play.
