Pirates Ahoy!

Our latest theme was exciting, fresh and fun – Pirates! The children in our delightful little class of K1.1 loved it from the very start. There were all sorts of activities involved such as colourful books filled with thrilling pirate stories that were combined with a real toy pirate ship filled with Lego pirates. This simple resource encouraged the children to be a part of the story themselves as they marvelled at the ship and the dolls. We also had various nursery rhymes and videos that included pirates. The children asked to see them at least once every day. However, the biggest hit were the crafts that were done throughout the week. All leading to the great finish line: pirate costume dress up at the end of the week. Friday was a big day for K1.1. The children could not help but wear their most anxious expression as each waited for their turn to wear the full pirate costume : a classic Napoleon style hat with a skull, an eye patch with their choice of pirate relevant sticker added, a pirates hook, and last but not least, a pirate binocular to observe the stormy waters ahead! Needless to say, all of the children looked perfectly cute in their little costume and it was such a lovely feeling waiting for their parents to see them wearing their work.  The costume was all simply made from our craft activities! It was certainly enough to make the children greet their parents  with a big AHOY! What a smile that brought to everyone!

Pre-Writing with the A3 light Panel

Today in our class we practiced pre-writing with the use of sand on the Light Panel. The children wrote on the sand while changing the light panel to their favourite colour.  This activity helped the children enjoy more pre-writing. For them it was really fun. The children tried their best to practice writing skills. They also took turns to write different letters that we learnt so far. The use of modern technology is helping the children to learn in a different playful way.

Make way for the Dinos!

Dinosaurs has been our main theme for class for these last few weeks. It is a particularly interesting subject that entwines nature and fantasy which are both always very popular topics with children. This theme was received very well by the students of the class K1.1. They very much enjoyed the cooking activity that was organised and which involved making beautiful beastly dinosaur paws! They looked so authentic that none of the children could keep their eyes (or hands!) off them! They were simply done by moulding the right amount of pastry with some flour and adding almonds on the edges to create the illusion of a dinosaur’s nails. Apart from this, many other different types of dinosaur crafts were done in class and most importantly, the children got to go home for the weekend with a dinosaur headband and a pair of big dinosaur hands to wear. It was the greatest reward seeing them all happy and eager waiting for their parents to see them. It was a great time for everyone thanks to beautiful dinosaur activities and ideas.

Dressing Up

Ms Margaret`s class did a dress up activity about the topic clothes. The children discussed different occupations and different uniforms. Later they all dressed up and pretended to be firemen, policemen, builders, hairdressers and doctors.  They enjoyed themselves wearing different clothes. It was a very interesting activity in which the children involved themselves well while pretending to be someone else.

Monsters have invaded!

This week’s topic for Ms. Audrey’s children was Monsters. One of their activities was to help them develop their PINCER grip. During an activity with plasticine, the children were given spaghetti and they had to put thin and wider pasta through it. xx The other activity was forming monsters out of plasticine and pasta.
