Miss Paisley

 

 

This is my first year teaching at Greyfriars! I am excited to start teaching Reception in Snettisham class and working alongside Heacham. I love teaching children in Early Years and look forward to supporting them as we learn, create and grow!

I am passionate about music, vocabulary and communication and use Makaton sign language in the classroom to support this. Outside of school, I am a massive bookworm and I love being artsy and creative!

Good Afternoon Everyone,

As always, we have had a very busy week in Snettisham Class. Below is our In The Moment Planning document which shows how we are following the children’s interests and weaving their next steps into their learning through play.

We made repeating AB and ABC patterns and we made and ice cream shop like you would find by the seaside or ‘coastline’. We observed the changes that our caterpillars are making getting ready to build their chrysalis before turning into butterflies and we made emotion potions in our potions factory. We tackled a puzzle together, finding the edges first and then the inside using the picture on the box. We observed the changes to the sunflower we planted and moved them to a sunnier location with more room to grow. We played with the dinosaurs and practised our writing in the sand.

Well done to, A our writer of the week, E our reader of the week and S, our mathematician of the week.

Have a lovely weekend. Stay safe and well.

Good Afternoon Everyone,

As always, we have had a very busy week in Snettisham Class. Below is our In The Moment Planning document which shows how we are following the children’s interests and weaving their next steps into their learning through play.

We drew butterflies on our playground, making sure each wing was symmetrical. We categorised objects by their material; wood, metal and plastic then made a Venn diagram for objects with more than one material. We had a ‘Maths Meeting’ and practised one more; one less than a given number. We played in the water try and practised empty, not full, half full, nearly full, full and overflowing. We made soup following our own recipe and we made our own traffic systems.

Well done to, A our writer of the week, I our reader of the week and C, our mathematician of the week.

Have a lovely weekend. Stay safe and well.

Good Afternoon Everyone,

As always, we have had a very busy week in Snettisham Class. Below is our In The Moment Planning document which shows how we are following the children’s interests and weaving their next steps into their learning through play.

We have been writing postcards about our imaginary visit to the beach, we were thinking about our senses and what we could see, hear, smell, taste and feel. We made our own restaurant with food and menus and we were spinning a wheel filled with our Phase 3 phonemes. We built robots and measured them to see who had the tallest and shortest. We made sun loungers to feel warm and played in the water, washing cards and managing the flow using guttering. 

Well done to, F our writer of the week, M our reader of the week and M, our mathematician of the week.

Have a lovely weekend. Stay safe and well.

Good Afternoon Everyone,

As always, we have had a very busy week in Snettisham Class. Below is our In The Moment Planning document which shows how we are following the children’s interests and weaving their next steps into their learning through play.

We have been using paper to make our own Pokemon Go maps for our classroom and drawing our favorite Pokemon. We have been role-playing and reading bedtime stories together. We made kites and ribbon strips so we could attempt to see the breeze we could feel and then worked together to put together a skeleton. We released butterflies that had emerged from their chrysalises. We matched parts of the body to the correct scientific names and we save a lady bird from our stream a put it in our Bug Hotel.

Well done to, R our writer of the week, M our reader of the week and C, our mathematician of the week.

Have a lovely weekend. Stay safe and well.

Good Afternoon Everyone,

We have had a very busy week in Snettisham Class. Below is our In The Moment Planning document which shows how we are following the children’s interests and weaving their next steps into their learning through play.

We have been building a rocket out of blocks and crates to fly to the planets. We made a fresh batch of play dough together – it smelt like strawberries. We were reflecting the sunlight onto the wall using mirrors and measuring the growth of our sunflower seeds. Our classroom was visited by two wolves so we had to create signs to warn our friends. We rinsed off the tarpaulin and put in the sun to dry and used the bikes to transport new sand.

Well done to, H our writer of the week, F our reader of the week and C, our mathematician of the week.

Have a lovely weekend. Stay safe and well.

We have been…

We built a city together outside and made our own Pancake Cafe. We created safety signs for out construction area to remind our friend of our safety rules. We used our bikes to transport our blocks to build a house and wrote stories we could perform in front of our friends. We designed and created our own hair bows and played ‘spot the missing object’ by using our rhyming words.

 

Well done to, M our writer of the week, B our reader of the week and S, our mathematician of the week.

We have been…

We had our own Phonics lesson led by Melis! We learned about our Phonemes and how to segment and blend sounds and words. We had the bubble machine of to play and tried to catch, and pop, as many as we could whilst being very safe. We were found and wrote our Phase 2 words in shaving foam in the tuff tray. We washed our new toys measured worms. We also played in the rain and helped our friends ride their bikes.

We have been…

We had our snack outside to reminded us last week when we had our picnic in the walks. We found a whale on our world map which we were inspired to find due to Brody’s picture of the whale that became lost in the Thames River in London.  We held their own Maths Meeting going through their counting, one more; one less and naming shapes. We opened an Oreo Cafe and served treats to our friends learned about flags from our on countries and that of others. We learned to do cartwheel and even play and sang in the rain. What a great week!
