The Rockets have really enjoyed our Explore and Discover mornings with our families this term. Today saw the last session, we were very busy mark making in the lightbox, it was fun to see what we could draw and how we could move the glitter through blowing it with a straw. We also experimented to make music in bottles through pouring different amounts of water in. It was interesting to compare the different sounds through varying the amount of water and whether the bottle was made from glass or plastic. We were challenged to build a 3D structure using playdough and toothpicks, these were very tricky and we had to have a steady hand. Thank you to our families for joining us in getting stuck into Explore and Discover activities on a Friday morning this term!
Over the past several Fridays, the EY2 children have invited their parents to explore and discover malleable provisions in our classroom.The children have led the way for their parents to touch, smell and play with materials that aren’t always neat and tidy. It’s been a fun experience for all.
The EY2 children were thrilled to have Farm de Lek visit us in our Garden. They had a chance to pet the rabbits, hold a chicken and feed the pigs as well as the goats. EY2 children also experienced the smells, textures and sounds of the animals and were talking about it in our classes afterward. Thanks to Farm de Lek for coming and making it so interesting and fun!
Rocket Class really enjoyed their first ‘explore and discover’ morning with their parents and Nanny’s today. The classroom has lots of activities enabling the Rockets to use their senses and imaginations in different ways. We had smelly bags which you had to match up to their picture; home-made fishing rods where we had to catch the magnetic fish and painting using cotton wool in pegs. One of the most popular activities was to design a new body for ourselves, these were great fun and very funny! Thank you to everybody who came and we look forward to trying some more explore and discover activities with you next week.
Thank you for joining us this morning as we explored the activities set up in the classroom. There were some excellent discoveries made, some great thinking skills and superb vocabulary flying around the classroom- great work!
This morning we had our first ‘Explore and Discover’soft start session. All week the children have taken part in lots of different science experiments and some you can still see today as we are watching what happens to them over time. The children are learning to record our findings and also predicting what will happen.
Please come along next Friday morning to play and learn alongside you child in our next ‘Explore and Discover’ morning (7:20 – 7:50).
The EY2 children thoroughly enjoy their weekly Story Time! It’s always a pleasure to see them gather around and listen to books read in English and in Thai. Each week, children get a chance to hear award winning books and experience a variety of stories with their friends.
The Jets really enjoyed their first ever Explore and Discover morning on Friday. The children had lots of ‘hands on’, fun learning experiences with: scented play dough, rice and sand mixed with shaving foam. Each Friday we will continue to do Explore and Discover mornings (please see poster for exact dates). Thank you very much for coming along and enjoying experimenting with sensory play, I hope you too had as much fun as the children!
We had a special visit from the Shark Guardian in EY2 last week. We learnt some very interesting facts about what sharks like to eat and also what they do not like to eat! Have a look at the pictures and see if you can see what we were feeding Julie the shark. We also learnt how important sharks are and the Shark Guardian told us lots of ways that we can help look after and protect them.
