This week we have been learning all about Vets. We have had Doctor Cook come in to talk to us all about being a Vet and what she has to do as a Vet. She showed us lots of photos of the Vets she works at and all the animals she has to look after. We also got to compare the teeth of different animals and decide which teeth were the healthy teeth and which teeth were the unhealthy teeth. In our continuous provision this week we have been painting pictures of our pets, looking at the print of different animals skin, fur and scales and washing and grooming different animals in the water area. We have also been researching, how to look after our own pets and then writing about it. Next week we will be looking at superheros and how they help us.
This week we have been learning all about Doctors, Nurses and Hospitals. We have been looking into what they do, what they wear and how they look after people. We have been very lucky this week to have been visited by two special visitors to give us a small insight into their jobs. Firstly, we had Doctor Singh who came to talk to us all about his role as a GP and how he helps make people better. He brought in lots of his equipment that he uses. The children got to try the stethoscope on each other, listening for each others heart beats and some children even got their temperature checked. We then got a visit from P.C. Bennett, who told us all about her role as a police officer. We asked her lots of questions about what she has to do, what she wears and why she wanted to be a police officer. We got to listen to her radio and she even gave us some of her special gloves and police cards for us to use in our very own police station.
We are very excited for next week as we will have two more visitors in, to talk about how they help us.
This week we have been learning all about the Police. We have researched through books, ipads and the computer what they do, what they wear and what transport they use. We have drawn pictures, created our own wanted posters, made our own police badges and used our own fingerprints to catch criminals. We have also been lucky enough to have our own police station in the classroom and have been busy playing in their, pretending to be police men and woman.
In Literacy this week we have been writing all about what we want to be when we are older, we had some amazing careers such as, vets, doctors, firemen and builders. In Maths this week we have been looking at tricky numbers, practicing their formation and recognosining them.
We can not wait for two visitors to come and see us next week in class to learn all about their job. We hope you have a lovely Bank Holiday and we will see you all Tuesday 7th May.
I hope you all had the best Easter holidays and I know you were all very lucky and received lots of Easter eggs. Our topic this term is 'People who help us'. This week our focus was Firefighters and we were so lucky to be visited by a fire engine and 6 fire men! We got to explore the fire engine and ask a lot of questions. We even got to hold some of their uniform such as the helmet and gloves. We spent all week investigating, learning about and writing all about firefighters. In literacy we focused on the fire engine and we wrote all about what it does and what it looks like. We had a competition to paint a fire engine and we also used hose pipes in our water area just like the real firefighter do. We look forward to finding out what next weeks career will be...
