Welcome to P2A
Our first term started with a MADD project using Fantastic Mr Fox as our stimulous. The children loved listening to the story and were keen to act it out in our play area where Mr Fox and his friends were hidden in the underground tunnels while the terrible tractors dug all around them. Mrs Gillies our “In-House” visiting art specialist, taught the children how to create their own fantastic foxes using mixed media.
Apart from on a Wednesday, when we have an assembly, our mornings begin with a soft start where the children can choose from a variety of table top activities. Some of the firm favourites are Playdoh with letter stamps and number cutters, Lego and Duplo, jigsaws, our finger puppet theatre and creating with magnetic balls and sticks.
In numeracy we are learning to add 2 and 3 numbers together using a variety of games and activities.
Our Outdoor Learning Day was a great success! Some of the class were involved in environmental art where they created some gorgeous pictures and displays using things from nature which they had found in our wood.
Halloween at Balgreen wouldn’t be the same without a visit from Tricky Ricky the magician. As always the children laughed and laughed for the duration! Afterwards we had some apple dooking back in the classroom.
