Welcome to the Aquamarine class page!
Welcome to the Aquamarine class page! My name is Miss Wicks and I am the class teacher for Aquamarine class. Aquamarine is Reception and it is also known as Foundation Stage Two (FS2). Here at Dunsville, we work closely with Amber class (Nursery) during child-initiated time within our Foundation Unit.
Miss Thomas, Miss Munro, Mrs Shaw, Miss Chesters, Miss Atterbury, Mrs Credland and Mrs Stewart also work with us across our foundation stage unit.
Our staff in our Foundation Unit help to support and enhance our learning opportunities as we learn through play.
Every day we are busy exploring and investigating the different areas in our classroom both inside and outside. We are outdoors in all weathers and we love to explore and create our own new environments to play in!
Here are some photographs of us enjoying our classroom!
In Phonics, we have been learning to recognise our phase 2 graphemes, we have been practising saying the phonemes and writing the graphemes in words using our robot talk!
We have been demonstrating what we have learnt by writing in our Phonics books.
We really enjoyed having our grown ups come in to watch us do one of our Phonics lessons!
We have been reading the book 'Owl babies'. We have really enjoyed reading the story, acting it out and challenging ourselves to label a picture from the book. We created our own actions to go with our story map and filmed it for you all to see!
All about me!
We have been learning all about us this term.
We have looked at our bodies and labelling the different body parts and then moved on to look at our families, the people in our community and where we live.
We enjoyed drawing our own maps of our journeys to school and exploring our local area using Google street view.
We talked about the body parts that we can't see and how Doctors use X-Rays to be able to see them, check out our X-Ray pictures that we made!
In Maths, we have been having a go at sorting objects using different sorting rules.
We then moved on to sorting into groups, for example, we sorted ourselves in to groups of 3 and then we sorted all of the counters in to groups of 3 or more.
