We had a special visitor to Lichtenstein today - Colonel Mustard! As part of our Paws, Claws and Whiskers, Mrs Michie very kindly brought in her tortoise for us to look at and ask questions about. We were very intrigued and asked brilliant questions about how people look after tortoises and what they eat. The children were interested in why Colonel Mustard moved so slowly and Mrs Michie explained that when tortoises are cold they move slower, but when they are warmed up they can move quickly.
The children learnt lots of new things about tortoises and I hope they enjoyed it!
Happy New Year!
On behalf of all the adults in Lichtenstein, I would like to say a BIG thank you for our lovely Christmas presents. It was very kind and generous of you all. I hope you all had a lovely break. I am looking forward to seeing the children, ready for another busy term of learning!
Christmas has arrived in Lichtenstein. We have spent the week making Christmas cards, having fun listening and dancing to Christmas music. It has been lovely to see the children enjoying themselves and getting into the Christmas spirit. I would like to say thank you for all your continued support this term. It is very much appreciated by everyone at Longlands.
I wish you all a happy Christmas. Enjoy the break and I will see you all in 2018, ready for lots of new learning! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
A huge thank you and a really well done to all of the children in EYFS and KS1 who took part in the performance of 'Christmas Counts'. After battling with initial nerves, the children were truly amazing. Voices were louder, the dancing more 'Strictly'and the timing more precise-fabulous!
After three performances, it is safe to say everyone was exhausted!
EYFS and KS1 would like to thank you for all your continued support and we wish you a very happy Christmas.
17.11.17 - A Big Thank You!
I would just like to say thank you to all the parents and children in Lichtenstein for the effort and hard work that has gone into the family trees and scrap books. They are amazing and the children are very proud of them. We are gradually showing them to the class and then we will be making a display in the classroom and corridors to celebrate the hard work.
Thank you again, it really is appreciated!
03.11.17 - Enabling Enterprise - The Amazing Art Gallery Opening
During Enabling Enterprise, KS1 have been working on a project called 'The Gallery Opening'. This has included them making their own masterpieces, becoming tour guides and using team work skills to create their own art gallery. The children spent Friday morning setting up the gallery and deciding where they wanted their artwork to go. After break, Miss Owen cut the red ribbon and declared the art gallery open! Lichtenstein did a fantastic job, showing different classes and adults around. They were able to speak about their own and a partner’s work, explaining what it was called and how it was made. The children made all the adults very proud and they all had a lovely time!
Welcome back! I hope you all had a lovely half term. This week is an exciting week in Lichtenstein class as we have been challenged to create our own art gallery. This is part of Enabling Enterprise week which focuses on different life skills, such as working in a team, aiming high and listening carefully.
So far the children have come up with team names and they have discussed the different roles in an art gallery. This afternoon the children will be creating masterpieces which link in with their chosen theme of pets!
10.10.17 - How do Germs Spread
We have been investigating how germs can spread. We started off by talking about what a germ is and how they might spread through the school. The children discussed how many different things people touch throughout the day and how this helps germs spread.
We pretended glitter was the germs and we had five children with germs. We sprinkled glitter over their hands and the children had ten minutes of free choice time to do different activities. After we looked at where the glitter had spread and concluded that it went everywhere! The children had lots of fun with the investigation and loved the fact that glitter was involved!
The First Week
It has been a wonderful week full of fun! Lichtenstein class have spent the week practising phonics, writing about their summer holiday and their favourite things and counting. We have been thinking about superheroes, as this is our first topic, creating our own for our reward board. We also painted self-portraits which make a lovely entrance to the classroom.
I am looking forward to the exciting things coming up this term!
