Sabers Update

 

All about Road Transport and Road Safety:

The Children's Day Surprise was great fun to colour!

What an fascinating topic this has been for the transport loving sabers!! We often see our class getting fully engrossed in the construction area with the cars and train toys, so this week was a real treat.  We loved exploring the books about vehicles and road signs, so it was full steam ahead for this interesting topic!

This week the children shared their knowledge on road safety and how they travel to school. We re-enacted the roles of bus drivers and traffic wardens and loved singing along to ‘Driving along in my Car’ and the road safety song ‘Stop, Look, Listen, Think.’ We worked together to make a mini city and directed the cars around it.

Pre Literacy:

This week we practice our Jolly Phonics song for ‘b’ We learned that it’s ‘b for bat, ball and boy.’ We designed boats and liked sharing bananas.

 

Excellent sharing

Chinese Character:

This week, we learned the word for truck and compared the different trucks we like, the sabers are all keen fire fighters and all voted for the red fire truck as their favourite.

Maths:

We had messy fun with maths this week, modelling play dough to make directional signs and using different colours to the dye. We enjoy completing life cycle puzzles and carefully build our own transport verhcles with construction toys.

We learned a new way to paint, using spray bottles. We chose our favourite colours and had a lot of fun creating our own T-shirts ready for news years special performance day. We are sure the children will proudly wear their designs.

Music:

Listening to ‘Learn English Kids’ we sun along to ‘Over the Mountains,’ ‘Stop Look, Listen, Think’ and ‘Down by the Station.’

We had a rehearsal in the gym, practicing our special End of Year performance songs ‘The Little Seed’ and ‘The Planting Song.’ Our class is great, dancing enthusiastically and singing loudly, Go Sabers!

This week, we really liked sharing Florins book ‘Boo,’ discovering all the creepy objects hidden in the story. We loved the nosy farmyard animals story and liked the colourful pictures in ‘Cars Galore.’
