We had a lovely surprise this week when we found out that Rachel would be doing gymnastics with us each week now. We went to the Hall and had to listen very carefully to what she taught us. She taught us to make some special shapes with our bodies. She taught us some special new words-
tuck straddle pike
We had a great time learning gymnastics and can’t until next week when we see Rachel again.
Parents/ Carers- Please remember PE day is Wednesday. Thanks for sending all the PE kits, we just have a couple of children who still need a PE kit in school. Also please remember it is best to take earrings out on a Wednesday morning so children are safe in PE sessions.
Today was a very special day in Onyx class, we got changed for PE for the very first time. A huge thank you to all the parents/ carers who sent PE kits to school, nearly everybody had a PE kit. Look how smart we all look….
We all did a fantastic job of getting changed all by ourselves. Miss Parker and Miss Morris only had to help with a few top buttons and some pairs of tights but these are really tricky. Everyone did a great job of remembering where all their clothes were and only putting on the right ones. Some children were even feeling confident enough to help others.
Miss Webster popped in from Nursery and was very impressed with how independent everyone was being. We showed her the stars we were getting on our Star Cards 🙂
We all loved PE in the Main Hall. We played a game where one of us had to give instructions to everyone else so they knew how to move. We had to listen very carefully and then think how to move in all the different ways. Can you remember all the different ways we had to move?
Don’t forget to leave your child’s PE kit in school and then it’ll be there when we need it again next week. Our Hall session for PE is Thursday mornings.
What we have been learning?
- To get dressed and undressed ourselves.
- To listen to instructions.
- To move in different ways.
How can you continue the learning at home?
- Let your child get dressed and undressed themselves- it might take longer but they will get quicker!
- Keep practising with tricky zips and buttons.
We’re really lucky in Foundation Stage this year at Prince Edward Primary. We love playing and learning outside so much our teachers got us some special waterproof clothes so we can play out everyday even on the really rainy days.
It rained this week so we got to try them out. We have to get the waterproof trousers and jackets ourselves and find the wellies which fit. We did a great job of finding all the right sizes and getting ourselves ready. Our teachers only had to help a little bit with the zips. We her friends to help us as well if it gets too tricky.
Then out we went…. its great to be able to go out in the rain and stay dry. We’re even looking forward to the next time it rains.
Parent/ carers– please remember the outdoor clothing is only for learning time and we will be unable to let children wear it at lunchtime. There is not enough for everybody. If you would rather your child bring their own wellies then make sure they are named and kept next to your child’s peg. As always write your child’s name in everything!
