Ruby Class is our Early Years Foundation Stage class and is taught by Mrs Greenwood and Mrs Death.

 

We are supported by Mrs Hambling and Mrs Polley.

Mrs P.webp

Our EYFS curriculum is strongly influenced by our curriculum drivers: community, communication, opportunities and possibilities and initiative, where the outcome is a cohort of happy, independent, confident and determined learners who are able to communicate effectively, have the ability to think critically, enjoy sharing their thoughts and ideas with others and believe that anything is achievable.  The children within our early years provision learn through a range of child initiated play-based opportunities as well as child-led, adult led and independent learning opportunities.

Spring Term 2-Once Upon a Time, Spring and Easter

28.3.2024

Happy Easter from everyone in Ruby Class!

 

This week we have acted out the celebrations of Palm Sunday, written Easter prayers and created Easter gardens.  We performed 'Spring Chicken' in our first Easter service in church, and enjoyed lots of Spring and Easter themed activities (including a 'doubles' egg hunt!)

This week we have been space explorers...we found out about Neil Armstrong and the very first moon landing and reviewed the names of all the planets (we learned about them in J's first 'Follow me Friday' session in November). We also read 'Alien Love Underpants' and discussed whether we believe aliens are real or not!  We enjoyed making 'salad spinner' planets and printing with stars in the creative area.  We had lots of fun designing our own underpants too!

In Drawing Club we read the story 'Are the Dinosaurs Dead, Dad? by Julia Middleton.  We learned the vocabulary words disbelief, intrigue, ginormous, ferocious, herbivore and carnivore and enjoyed drawing the T-Rex, the museum and a way to stop the T-Rex from eating Dave and Dad.  The children are getting much more confident and independent when writing their magic codes.

Our 'Follow me Friday' session was led by N who is interested in jellyfish..."they are so funny!"

N had worked hard with her brother at home to prepare an information chart about jellyfish to teach her friends some fascinating facts!  Did you know...jellyfish do not have eyes, bones, a heart or a brain? Did you know...that jellyfish can be blue, yellow, pink, purple and clear and that some jellyfish glow in the dark?  We then created our own jellyfish 'smack' (the name of a group of jellyfish).  Thanks for a great session N-we all love jellyfish now too!

We had the best fun during our 'skipping and playground games' workshop with Mr Massey.  We are also very grateful to the HSA for buying us some new outdoor bricks for our construction zone.  We have loved being the Ruby Class building company!

It has been a busy week of investigations in Ruby Class this week as we celebrated 'British Science Week'.  This year's theme is 'Time' and we had lots of fun finding out about shadows and the 4 different seasons.

Our 'Drawing Club' sessions have been based on 'Adventure of the past' and we have loved watching 'Road Runner'.  We have learned the vocabulary speedy, zooming, ambush, boulder, slinking and escape.  The children have enjoyed drawing Road Runner, thinking of a home for the coyote and inventing a way to make the coyote travel super fast!  Super drawings and amazing magic codes everyone!

In maths, we have been naming and rotating shapes to solve tangram puzzles and exploring doubles...we are getting very speedy at saying our doubles to 5.

Our 'Follow me Friday' session was led by J who LOVES cheetahs!  He taught us lots of interesting information about them from his book and we enjoyed creating cheetahs and tigers by tearing paper and adding features with markers (inspired by the book 'Maybe' by Chri Haughton).
