This week we are learning about the different sounds instruments make and exploring their pitch. We are reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears and painting everything rainbow, to represent the different sounds we hear. Here is our learning grid if you need it: Week 3.docx

Outdoor Friday! (18.06.21)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

To help us celebrate the upcoming summer solstice, Foundation embraced everything sun related, hoping that it would come out to join us and scare the rain away! We made sun crowns, painted sun patterns and made sun clay treasure tiles. F1 were super excited to have Mrs Machen there too and taught her everything she needed to know about Outdoor Friday. Thank you Foundation for a lovely day :) 

                

 


What is special to you? (17.06.21)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

On Thursday, F1 joined the rest of the school with their learning about another faith. The focus has been on Islam and in F1 we learnt that a prayer mat is a special object for someone who believes in Islam. We first had to think about what was special for us. Mrs Machen showed us a photo of her family, a straw teddy she had when she was a little girl and her pocket cross as her special objects. Lot's of us shared the names of our favourite cuddly toys as special objects and why they were special. Then we learnt that a prayer mat is a special object. We explored the mats, made our own craft prayer mats and made halal rice krispie treats, they were delicious.

We are continuing our learning about beat and pulse this week and understanding that a beat can be fast or slow. Here is our learning grid if you need it: Week 2.docx

If you have any queries or questions, please email f1@olsj.org.uk or worrywednesday@olsj.org.uk


Can you make a beat? (10.06.21)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

We've had a lovely start to the term exploring instruments, creating paintings inspired by our jingling paintbrushes and engaging with our favourite classroom spaces.

We have a new junk modelling station in our classroom this term and if anyone can contribute small cardboard boxes and plastic tubs that would be most helpful. We will quarantine them in school before we put them to use. We are also going to be making our own musical instruments in a couple of weeks so cardboard tubes from kitchen rolls or wrapping paper would also be useful if any are going spare at home. Thank you.
