Nursery children are working with the core texts “Five Minutes Piece” and “A Piece of Cake” learning names of family members, counting how many people are in our families and repeating words and phrases from the story when using story props during play. There have been lots of opportunities for children to explore and initiate their own learning in the outdoor area too!
The learning continues in Reception, the children have settled in well and have explored the many learning opportunities that are available for them, both in the classroom and out. The children have created their own paths to cross a river where lots of teamwork, problem solving, jumping, communication, negotiation of space and turn taking took place! The children investigated making different patterns whilst also developing other skills such as fine motor and using the name of shapes in play. During child initiated learning, children have been using their mark making skills to help design their creations in the construction area. Some children have also started labelling with initial sounds!
Children in Year 1 had an exciting start when a spaceship landed on the playground, does anybody recognize this creature or spaceship? We've discovered the alien who landed on our playground Monday was Beegu. Children in Year 1 have been working really hard to learn and write about his story using Talk for Writing.
In Year 2 the children found clues around the school and a treasure map. The treasure was where the X marked the spot (on the climbing frame). It was a book from the Night Pirates, to whom the children have written some letters today and asked them some questions about their lives and what they are searching for. I wonder if they will visit again tonight.

Ocean's Art Day
At King's Infant School Elche, we have launched weekly 'Teacher Challenges' for children to complete at home. Alongside our live teaching sessions, these 'Teacher Challenges' are in place to help keep our children active and to ignite their imagination and creativity even when the school day finishes, providing them with the opportunities to experiment, explore and master a variety of skills.
Last week Mr Hickman set the children the challenge of drawing pictures using only their hands, pencils and crayons. Look how well they did! Click here
Open for Learning: Nursery
Miss Mountain’s Nursery children have been joining live classes via video call for morning register and live story sessions. The children also have the opportunity to see their classmates and share feelings, greatly improving their interaction with the teacher and their friends while we stay safe at home.
Nursery pupils have been practising forming and writing numbers, learning about the properties of objects, floating and sinking, going on colour hunts and talking about how beanstalks grow just like in the class story Jasper’s Beanstalk during story time on live video calls.
Even Miss Port has been recording special video lessons for Nursery showing pupils how to make special Easter Cards for their parents.
Open for Learning: Pre-Nursery
Today we would like to highlight learning in Pre-Nursery: Miss Maulo’s children have been following videos which explain the many activities they enjoy daily and the core texts and songs Miss Maulo reads and sings for them.
Activities have included matching socks to encourage the children to say the words ‘the same’ and ‘different’, colour and shape hunting to find toys and objects in their house of a specific colour and/or shape and exercising their fingers making different patterns and shapes using your hands, fingertips and fingers by squeezing mashing and rolling Playdough. The children have also been dancing and singing to keep moving our bodies while we stay home.
Before the Easter holidays, with the help of our fantastic parents, the children enjoyed an Easter egg hunt to find the surprises the Easter Bunny left in their house and count how many they have found.

The Importance of Sand and Water Play in EYFS
2D and 3D Shapes
In addition, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils created a digital register on the iPads of the shapes in the school which they will put together to make a picture book with a description about the type and quantity of shapes in each photo.
In KISE we appreciate and promote the good behaviour.
Therefore we have introduced golden tickets. Each day one pupil per class will be rewarded for their good behaviour after lunch time with one of these amazing golden tickets in which they need to write their names and then put them inside the golden box. Winners of the golden tickets competition may eat lunch at the golden table.

Pupils are presented with their celebration certificates for their outstanding behaviour and learning at school. During our recent assembly our Star of the Week in Pre-Nursery was awarded a certificate for the amazing amount of English spoken in class. Nursery’s star was awarded a certificate for writing their name while Reception’s certificate went to the pupil with the most Class Dojo points for the week. Last but not least, Year 1 and Year 2’s star of the week incredibly achieved 10 out of 10 on spellings for the last 4 weeks!
“You must be the change you wish to see in the world” - Mahatma Gandhi. Our pupils have been exploring the concept of peace through different classroom activities. Nursery and Reception have joined efforts to create a peace mural to decorate the school. Pre-Nursery has been busy creating and decorating doves that are “flying” around the school and Year 1 and Year 2 have created their own peace books with their thoughts on peace on Earth. We have reinforced the importance of respect, sharing, helping others in need and living together in harmony.
