Welcome to Rabbits!
Rabbits class are covering the following topics during 2016/17:
|Autumn Term||Spring Term||Summer Term|
Our first topic during the Autumn Term was ‘Going to the Local High Street’. We looked at pictures of different shops we might see on the High Street and role played visiting them. We acted out going to the baker’s shop and handed over a coin for a muffin. We acted out visiting the shoe shop and the children had to give a coin in exchange for their shoes. We looked at the different types of buildings we might see and compared the front of a house with a shop front. In DT, we made model shops using cereal boxes and pictures of shop windows and doors.
During this topic we looked at keeping ourselves nice and clean and the children were provided with opportunities to engage in multisensory play with flannels, soap, and other objects that we use to keep clean. The children enjoyed bathing hard bodied dolls. We learnt about the importance of keeping our teeth nice and clean. They enjoyed brushing the large model teeth and were encouraged to help count how many teeth we have.
During this topic we looked at the different occasions that we might celebrate such as birthdays and acted out having a party with party balloons and food. We experienced fireworks by watching clips of celebration fireworks and making our own fireworks pictures. We had a week where we celebrated Diwali, made rangoli patterns using coloured rice and sampled Indian food. We also looked at Christmas and how people celebrate Christmas, decorated Christmas trees and made salt dough decorations. We finished the term by combining the three topics and went to the city centre, visited santa, looked at the decorations, washed our hands before eating a McDonalds lunch. The children in Rabbits class were so well behaved and enjoyed every aspect of the trip
