Rainbow Class Newsletter
Find out what Rainbow Class have been busy doing this week. They've had a great time and worked very hard.
We have been reading the story 'Can't You Sleep Little Bear'. We have also been learning about numbers 1, 2 and 3. We made some delicious bear biscuits. We took turns to mix the ingredients, roll the biscuit dough and the cut the bear shapes out. We then added 1 currant nose, 2 currant eyes and 3 currant buttons for the tummies! Our biscuits were BRILLIANT and we even took some home with us.
p p p p p PIZZA!
In phonics we have been learning the p sound. We have been thinking about things beginning with p. Our favourite p word was PIZZA!!!! We made a pizza and then cooked it and ate it. It was yummy!
Dancing Tots, sensory play and phonics
We have been very busy in Rainbow Class. We had lots of fun with Dancing Tots for our music and movement session. We have been busy learning s and a in phonics. Heran and Helina really liked dressing up as a,a,a, astronauts! We have been practising writing the letters in the foam and playing in the water.
We really enjoyed our first PE lesson this year. We travelled around the circuit climbing up and jumping down. We liked sliding down the slide. We also really liked crawling through the tunnel!
Soft play visit
We had lots of fun on our first trip of the year to soft play. We enjoyed playing in the ball pool, climbing up the steep steps and then going down the slide. We really enjoyed being on the mini bus again too. We were GREAT!
We had such a good day! We loved playing on the bouncy castle and slide. The paddling pool was lots of fun too! We also enjoyed visiting the other classrooms.
Harlow Carr Gardens Trip
Rainbow class had a FANTASTIC trip to Harlow Carr Gardens in Harrogate. We had a picnic and had lots of fun playing. We saw lots of flowers and trees. We were AMAZING!
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
This term in Rainbow Class we are learning about 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. We made some caterpillar pictures using hand prints. We are learning about doubling before we start to learn the 2 x table. We thought about the life cycle of a caterpillar and made some sensory pictures to show it. We have continued to use Colourful Semantics to help us to learn new vocaubilary linked to the story and write some sentences. We have been looking at the caterpillars in Class 2 and watching them get bigger and bigger!

Goldilocks and the Three Bears
We have been doing lots of work about Goldilocks an the Three Bears. Some of us have been using Colourful Semantics to help with our vocabulary and sentence construction. We have been learning who, what, what doing and where words from the story. We have painted some brilliant Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have enjoyed reading the story and really like to watch Mr Tumble and Goldilocks and the Three Bears too. In Maths, some of us have been working on the whole-part model and some of us are learning to count to 3.
We really liked using the stepping stones that Sarah brought for our Music and Movement sessions so we bought some for Rainbow Class! The children have really enjoyed moving carefully along the stepping stones, waiting and taking turns. They are also getting really good at balancing. Well done Rainbow Class!
Soft play and music and movement
We have had some great sessions at soft play. We are getting really good at climbing safely and this has helped us in school too. We get really excited when it is time to go on the mini bus for soft play. We are also really enjoying our music and movement sessions with Sarah from Dancing Tots. We are getting good at listening to instructions. We really like it when we pretend to be asleep! Our favourite time is when the bubbles come out!
Music and movement
We really enjoyed our first 'Music and Movement' session. We loved the disco lights. We had lots of fun and did some GREAT listening too. We can't wait for our next session.
We had lots of fun with the parachute in PE. We really liked to go underneath it when it went up in the air. We also enjoyed exploring the apparatus and going down the slide.
Christmas in Rainbow Class
We have been very busy making Christmas cards and calendars. We also made some special gifts for our families. Our mums, dads and brothers and sisters came for some Christmas songs and treats. We had lots of fun at our Christmas party and had a visit from a very special person!!!!
We enjoyed a music lesson this week. Stanley really liked the microphone! Some of our friends from Class 1 joined in. We had lots of fun.
The children had a great time singing and dancing to Eritrean songs and eating himbasha.
Soft Play Room
We went for a trip to the soft play room at the Vinery Centre. We were AMAZING and had lots of fun! We were really happy that the balls were back in the ball pool and loved going down the slide.
We had a brilliant PE lesson. We were really good at balancing along the benches and we really enjoyed sliding along them too. We had lots of fun!
The children in Rainbow Class have had a great start back and have enjoyed making new friends. They had fun exploring the sensory table, playing in the outside area and spending time in the sensory room. They did some brilliant painting, practised their writing skills and enjoyed reading too.
