Welcome to Apollo Class! We have had a fantastic start to the year and have been busy working really hard. Our topics have included ‘pirates’ in literacy and we had great fun doing a treasure hunt in our outdoor classroom and drawing around ourselves to make life-sized pirate pictures.
We have enjoyed trips out to the local park and were also given a free class ticket to the new 360 soft play in Farnborough which was lots of fun!
Apollo class have had a great start to the year. Our current topics include animals and the weather. We have had lots of fun creating a jungle in the classroom, listening to books about different kinds of animals, sorting animals into different categories, finding out about their habitats, and moving like animals in PE.
In Geography we have explored different types of weather including wind and rain so far. We have enjoyed splashing in puddles and running with our home-made wind socks to create our own wind. In maths, we have particularly enjoyed programming bee-bots to make them move in different directions!
Apollo class had lots of fun celebrating over the Christmas period. We visited Woodlarks who had worked really hard to ensure a magical experience was had by all. We visited a room with lots of Christmas trees, lights and cause and effect toys. We also went for a Woodland walk and saw Father Christmas in his sleigh, pulled along by reindeer. We then followed a snowman and a reindeer to Santa's Grotto and woke him up with a loud bell!
On the build up to Christmas, we made Christmas Decorations, cards, cakes and made sure we made our classroom look seasonal! Our Christmas play this year was 'Rudolph's Nose' which was about a reindeer who travelled around looking for his nose. On his journey he came across elves, snowmen, penguins, Christmas tree decorations and other reindeer. Everyone did really well.
