Hello Rainbows! Here are some of our learning adventures so far...

Rainbows Nativity 2020 - Some images from the recording.

After we had a visit from the firefighters we built our own fire engine and put out our own 'real' fires! 

This is our action story of 'The Little Red Hen' retold by Rainbows. 

More of our learning about the Little Red Hen...Making our own bread and meeting 'Nash' the hen 

Term 2 Learning Adventures so far...

More of our Term 2 Learning 

We have been very keen to design, build and adapt our constructions in Rainbows. We have used many open ended resources such as bricks, blocks and gutters to construct houses, a bike wash and a very long ball track!

Over the last 2 weeks we have been learning about and celebrating the

Festival of Diwali and the story of Rama and Sita.

Here is just some of the activities we have been doing.

This week we have been learning to represent the quantity of 6 in different ways knowing that the total is the same!

Forest School fun - Toasting marshmallows and making our stick Christmas tree.

Over the last few weeks we have been so occupied with our learning. We have been busy writing letters to our friends and family in the post office, building and constructing and making vegetable vehicles.

Some of our amazing phonics work!
