Welcome to the Amber class page! My name is Miss Wicks and I am the class teacher for Amber class. Amber is Nursery and it is also known as Foundation Stage One (FS1). Here at Dunsville, we work closely with Aquamarine class (Reception) during child-initiated time within our Foundation Unit.
We have lots of staff in our foundation unit that support and enhance our learning as we learn through play. The adults across our unit include: Miss Wicks, Mrs Thompson, Miss Thomas, Mrs Yarrow, Mrs Stuart and Mrs Outram.
We have had so much fun this term, here are some photographs of some of the things that we have been doing this term...
Pirates Love Underpants!
This term our topic has been all about pirates! We have really enjoyed learning all about pirates, from reading the Pirates Love Underpants story, to building pirate ships and pretending to be pirates.
We started off our topic with a special delivery, we didn't know who this delivery had come from and had to work as a team to figure it out. We had been sent a treasure chest consisting of golden coins (some were even made of chocolate!), underpants, jewels and treasure maps! We decided to follow the treasure map to find the secret treasure, we saw lots of underpants clues along the way which led to a golden pants trophy.
After looking at the Pirates Love Underpants book we realised that our delivery had come from Captain Blackbeard!
During the term we have built some fabulous pirate ships...
We have also created some fabulous pirate models for our home learning...
To finish off our topic, we had a think about what Captain Blackbeard could take with him if he was stuck on a desert island. We created some brilliant drawings and descriptions of what he could take, some of our ideas included a torch so that he could see at night, a teddy in case he felt lonely and a coat to keep him warm during the night.
We finished off the term with lots of exciting Christmas celebrations, we especially loved seeing what our cheeky elf Jingle had gotten up to each evening!
Here is a tour of what our unit looks like for 2020/21...
