Little Chicks have been learning about growing plants, tending to the garden, watching vegetables grow, daily collecting food for the compost and watching the changes in the wildlilfe throughout the terms. Mrs Hicks has diligenlty tended to the garden with the children engaging in outdoor learning to produce food and nuture the plants. Carleton Green Community Primary School has been awarded the Eco Green Flag with a distinction. This week the Little Chicks picked peas. We have a resident hedghog at Carleton Green we ask that he is not disturbed in his habitiat as they are timid creatures and do not require a lot of interaction.
Summer Fair was enjoyed by all, Little Chicks had a turn at kick the football into the goal, throw the welly, bouncy castle, hook a duck, lucky dip and a look at the Police van.
Little Chicks this term will have a weekly session with Fleetwood Town this week their coach was Kirean. He introduced a game called cars. Little Chicks began with the aeroplane position using their foot to keep the ball still in stationary position. Then Kirean introduced the penguin move which encourges them to walk like a penguin to control the ball. Last their was the tap toe where they had to stop the ball and alternate their feet to tap on the ball. Kirean then put these moves into practise through the car game. Little Chicks had to drive their car around watching the traffic lights. Red = Stop Amber = Slow down Green = GO Kirean used cones to represent: Orange = Car wash Blue = Petrol station White = Jail When on green the Little Chicks could visit the car wash and do the penguin move around the orange cones or the petrol station and while filling up for petrol they did the tap toe for the count of ten. Of course if they continued driving when light turned red, Miss Taylor (Police Officer) would send them to jail. AGH!
Little Chicks this term will have a weekly session with Fleetwood Town this week their coach was Kirean. He introduced a game called Jungle. Kirean used cones to represent animals of the jungle. Trees (white cone) Lions (red cone) Tigers (orange cone) Snakes (green cone) Elephants (yellow cone) Little Chicks had to dribble the ball avoiding the jungle animals to the other side of the jungle, then stand like an aeroplane supporting the ball with one foot, turn around and go back through the jungle avoiding the trees and the animals. Little chicks completed this for each animal introduced, at the end a monkey was chosen they had to stand in the middle of the jungle and try to intercept Little Chicks going through the jungle and take their ball. Once caught they became a monkey and had to catch other Little Chicks until all had been caught. Little Chicks throughly enjoyed the game and learnt ball skills, to follow instructions and listen.
We have been very busy this week with our road safety. First we have to talk about how to stay safe and then we go out to the roadside and practise what we have been learning about. The aspects that we have covered are holding hands, safe places to play, Stop, Look and Listen. We are now ready to practise crossing with a grown up next week!
In maths this week we have been learning to create our own more complex patterns, including symmetrical patterns.
The Ducklings have enjoyed having their PE lessons outside so far this term and the weather has been very kind to us. They have been practising their throwing and catching skills, working cooperatively with a partner.
Little Chicks had to choose 4 numbers and then put the corresponding spots onto the Ladybird. They counted out the spots as they placed onto the Ladybird
The Life cycle of the Caterpillar was complete and today Little Chicks and Ducklings set them free into their habitat with hope that they will stay in the local area as it a flowered environment. The children were amazed at the life cycle and have been observing throughout the process. Look out for The Painted Lady
Little Chicks have been putting the Busy Bees in number order 1-20. Circle time we took turns to help order the Bees, then took turns individually.
