PE Afternoon

JUMPING & THROWING 

 

Wednesday the children visited the school hall for their PE time.

 

First the children warmed up their bodies, stretching and bending in different ways.

 

Each child had a try at jumping  using two feet to land. 

 

Some children tried to jump backwards on their mat and  a few challenged themselves to jump more than one line on their mat. 

 

Next the child tried throwing all the balls from the large box into the circular targets behind the bench , they were so fast we had to keep recollecting all the balls.

 

Before long it was time to cool down and go back to Caterpillar room.

Forest School

 

Our first visit to Forest School, was all about exploring a new and exciting part of the school. Tucked away in the school grounds is a lovely wooded area that feels magical and exciting, with lots of secret paths and hidden dens for the children to hide in, or sit back and enjoy listening to the calm stillness of the woods.

 

The children played a stick game of 'copy me' where the adult showed the children how to measure a found stick off the ground, to different parts of their body, hand, arm and leg. They used their long stick as a walking stick dragging it along the ground behind them (the safe way to move long sticks around the woods.)

 

 

The children really enjoyed collecting treasure 'Forest school treasure' different coloured leaves, twigs , bark , conkers,fallen apples ,even a few feathers.

Thank you to all the parents who came to the Caterpillars Sports Day.

 

The weather was fantastic and once again the Caterpillar children showed their parents just how amazing they are, running the full length of the field.

All the children went home with a

Winners medal and enjoyed cooling down with an ice pop afterwards.

The Celebration picnic was a great success and it was lovely to see so many of our parents.

 

Sadly we will be saying goodbye to five of our Caterpillar children, who are moving to Sunbeams in September.

Yoga Pretzels

 

This week the children have been practicing Yoga.

They started by copying the adults moves, focusing on controlled movements, then holding a pose for a few seconds (this is very tricky).

 

 

As the week progressed some children wanted to show

others in the group a move to copy.

we all stood like still statues,

Balanced on one leg.

crouched down low.

WORLD BOOK DAY 

 

Picture 1

The children had a busy day today. Firstly they went to the costume parade in the big  hall. The children clapped and waved as they watched the children walk across the stage. At the end the Caterpillar children all walked up and down the catwalk with their bears  and magnifying glass (they were looking for bears), all the school clapped and waved to them it was good fun!

 

Next the children went on a bear hunt in the school ground, they have been listening to the story at small group time and already know lots of the actions and words.

The children have been exploring the effects paint has when mixed in the gloop, looking at the lines left behind when making marks. Some children liked to use a spoon or a brush first before using their hands to play with the gloop.
