Newsletter week 9

Dear Peacocks parents,

 

Some children borrowed extra clothes from each other, please bring these items back to school.

 

We want to ask you all to take a close look at the spring calendar, the important dates and the important information in our email.

 

This week Asma, Florentine, and some children were away on holiday but we continued with a bit of our theme as well as the fun!

 

Our learning:

Monday:

 

We began to talk about the life cycle of a frog which is in line with our ‘’changes’’ theme.  The children watched a short  video about the processes of a frogs life.  Just as every monday, the children enjoyed capoeria class.  Since there are some children who are away the class was a little longer!

 

We have been working on the following Lpfö goals:

* Develop their use of spoken language and express their thoughts, put questions and to communicate with others

* Develop their curiosity and enjoyment, as well as their ability to play and learn

* Develop their understanding of science and relationships to nature, as well as knowledge of plants, animals, and also simple chemical processes and physical phenomena

 

Tuesday:

 

The children had a long dance lesson with Hebert.  We also are starting to learn some new songs.  ‘’This old man’’ was introduced today.  This is a great song for the children to continue learning to rhyme as well as count.

 

We have been working on the following Lpfö goals:

* Develop their self-autonomy and confidence in their own ability

* Develop their curiosity and enjoyment, as well as their ability to play and learn

* Develop their use of spoken language, vocabulary and concepts, as well as the ability to play with words, relate something, express their thoughts, put questions, and put forward their arguments and communicate with others.

 

Wednesday:

The children played in the drama and pretend room in the morning.  We took some time to sing the new song we have learned.  ‘’John Jacob Jinglehiemershmidt’’.  We briefly spoke about the life cycle of a frog.  As it was the last Wednesday of the month, the children had toy day!

 

We have been working on the following Lpfö goals:

* Develop their curiosity and enjoyment, as well as their ability to play and learn

 

Thursday:

In the morning we began with music using the ipad and a midi control piano.  We started with just touching the piano and playing some notes.  We also got into learning the scale.  Hopefully we can get as far as teaching the children how to play a simple song.

 

Just before lunch we read a couple of emails written to the children from Florentine who is on holiday in the Dominican Republic.  We discussed where the Domincan Republic is in proximity to Sweden,  the flag,  the time and weather differences, and how the people might look.  

 

The children also did Jollyphonics with Magda in the afternoon.

 

We have been working on the following Lpfö goals:

* Develop their fine motor skills

Friday:

In the morning the children were in the science room.  During circle time we spoke a bit about the frogs life cycle again just to refresh their memories.  Afterwards, the children were divided into 3 groups.  One group went to the board games room and played memory and Uno.  One group played the Pizza game on the ipad.  The pizza game is a tool to help the children learn fractions.  In the afternoon, the younger children did activities in Swedish with Merry.  We also revisited the music scale of notes.
