Week 5 - Angry
Posted: Oct 9, 2020 by: admin on: 9/10/2020
This week we have been focusing on the feeling 'angry'. We have talked about what makes us feel angry and role-played some different scenarios to help us know how to react. We tried different techniques such as breathing exercises, running, and counting. In PE we even had a go at some boxing moves! As part of our continuous provision, we set up a red, angry zone containing lots of things that may help us if we feel angry. Things we could pull, stretch, squash, shake, cut, tear etc. We also made some playdough to keep in our drawers and use in free choice. We made sure that we followed the instructions and carefully measured out the ingredients. We spent time talking about fair and unfair and sorted some scenarios - Corey cheating in a race is not fair, everyone getting a piece of cake for Eddie's birthday is fair.
In Literacy, we learnt how to use a thesaurus to find more exciting words that mean the same as happy, sad, angry etc. We also used a thesaurus on the computers. Then we focused on pronouns (he, she and they). We wrote captions to match the photos of our friends acting out different emotions. I was so impressed that all the children know our Magic 5 and checked their work carefully!
On Friday it was Eddie's birthday. In the afternoon we played party games, had a special snack time with birthday cake and watched him open his presents.
Hope you all have a great weekend - let us know what you get up to!
