On Monday D’vash class had a hugely successful first swimming lesson. We pretended to be just like the sea animals we have been learning about; diving like a dolphin, blowing bubbles like a fish and flopping about like whales. We are all looking forward to our next swimming session!!!
We celebrated the impending Royal Wedding on Friday. D’vash class made cucumber sandwiches to add to our table at the afternoon tea celebrations. We decorated balloons and Union Jack flags. In Assembly, we looked at pictures of weddings from various cultures and spoke about how marriage means different things for different people.
In art this week we made hermit crabs. Each child made their choice between materials to decorate their hermit crab’s shell and the results were fantastic. In Messy play we looked at animals in a rock pool and talked about the different actions they perform including hiding, jumping, running, flopping and swimming. This helped us when we were playing alongside our peers.
We wish everyone a Happy Shavuot with family and loved ones.
