Chicks News - 14th June 2024

To begin our preparations for Father’s Day we chose the topic book ‘Daddy is my Hero’ by Dawn Richards and Jane Massey. The book encouraged the children to talk about their favourite activities they like to do with their Daddy. The children really enjoyed engaging with this topic and they were all excited to get ready for Father’s Day and our Bring Daddy to School Day this week.

The Chicks got very creative in Art, where they created wonderful rescue hero helicopters themed cards for thier Daddies. While making their cards the children discussed the different shapes and their properties while sticking the coloured shapes on paper to create their cards. The children all loved to see the photos of themselves flying the helicopter.

During our Literacy activities the children signed their Father’s Day card. The older Chicks were able to independently write their names while the younger Chicks traced over the yellow writing. We discussed what we like to do with our Daddy’s from holding hands to riding their bicycles. The children then chose the pictures that most suited them and stuck them on their activity sheet.

In Cookery we made biscuits for the Daddies. Together the Chicks mixed flour, butter, stevia and vanilla essence in the bowl to form a dough. The children then rolled out the dough before making a heart shaped biscuit.

The highlight this week was our Bring Daddy to School Day on Thursday and Friday. The Chicks and their Daddies played with the Small Word wild animals, going on Safari and finding out which animals live in the wild. They played with the playdough, rolling the dough and using the cutters to make biscuits. Elsewhere in the classroom they built wonderful creations with the Magnatiles and the Mega Blocks. They also had fun going on adventures with their Daddies and the Small World cars and garage.

Finally, they worked collaboratively to make Superhero masks for the children to take home. Just before the Daddies went they had a story read to them by one of the Chicks Daddies.
