Plenty of Skipping, Jumping and Bouncing in Kindergarten!
Posted: 21st June 2013 | Category: Kindergarten
‘Skipping and jumping and running in races’ that was Kindergarten on Sports Day. We were all incredibly proud of them. The weather previous to Sports Day had been awful so we hadn’t had much of a chance to practise but this did not dampen the spirit of Team Kindergarten. They ran three races and as the theme was Wimbledon they were put into teams-Henman, Federer and Murray. The first race was the running race and Kindergarten were ready on the starting line-positioned beautifully. They were off………Jacob just had the edge on the others and won by a whisker. Next we had the tennis ball and spoon race-there was no stopping them. It was great fun and not a ball was dropped. The last race was the sports hat race. Everyone ran like rockets to begin with but there were some lane changes happening depending on where the best Sports Cap was. Afterwards there followed a picnic on the blustery field but ice creams certainly brought smiles to the weary athletes faces. Well done Kindergarten!
In Kindergarten we also took part in the Early Years Bounce Day. We have raised over our target of £150 to go towards the Autism Society and we are delighted by this. They really did bounce their hardest so excellent work Early Years.
As part of our induction process into Kindergarten and Reception we held a Teddy Bears Picnic . We were lucky with the weather and we all went down to the grounds for a fun lunch hour. We started off by reading ‘We are going on a Bear Hunt’ and then by going to go and find some Skippers teddies. Luckily the children managed to fine one each. Then we all sat down for a gourmet picnic provided by the fabulous Skippers cooks. Once we had eaten and been refreshed, the Year 7 girls came to play games for the afternoon. The bubble machine was on and it added to the wonderful atmosphere.
Then it was back to the classroom to continue our phonics. We are learning ‘f’ so we hid items that begin with a ‘f’ around the classroom. We then looked closely at how to form ‘f’ with our fingers –we dipped them into paint and made lots of very messy patterns. We then made fans (which were very needed in the hot weather).
It is transition time in Kindergarten and now my Kindergarten have grown and developed into children who are about to start school. We are preparing for the grand Graduation Day on the 2nd July where Kindergarten will sing songs and be given the send off they deserve. There will not be a dry eye in the house….
