of the FS1 teachers and key workers are so proud of how well the children have
settled into life at Al Muna. They are
getting used to the daily routines and gaining confidence exploring the
classrooms, shared area and outside.
They are beginning to learn the names of the other children in their
class and make new friends. We have been
learning about different parts of our bodies and the songs “Heads, Shoulders,
Knees and Toes”. This half term we will be learning a wide range of nursery
rhymes and songs. How many do you think we'll be able to learn? We will also start sending out weekly
overviews via the portal (and have one up on our doors too) which will give you
a little more detail about what we will be learning that week. Thank you for
your continued support!
Wow! What a busy term it has been so far.
We have been busy making our way through different nursery rhymes beginning
with Humpty Dumpty. We watched an egg Humpty Dumpty fall off a wall and we
couldn’t put it back together again! Those two little dickie birds, Peter and
Paul, keep flying away. At least they come back again. We also gave bags of
wool to the master, the dame and the little boy who lived down the lane. And
isn’t it nice when you go out at night and look up to see stars twinkling down
you? Who doesn’t love a twinkling star?
We’ve settled in quite nicely and have been
enjoying trips to the library and will soon be choosing our own books. We’ve
been keeping up with our daily mile too with our morning rounds around the

the jungle, walking in the jungle, who do you seem who do you see? A monkey!”
wonderful topic “Jungle Animals and Minibeasts” has been. The children have
absolutely loved learning about the different types of animals found in the
jungle and those that are not. For instance, did you know that lions do not
live in the jungle? Of course, no jungle topic is complete without visiting
Emirates Park Zoo which the kids were so excited about. Where else would we be
able to feed elephants, goats and giraffes?
term also saw International week and FS1 started the week off in Pakistan where
we block-printed some cotton fabric and made cucumber raita. Yum! Then we flew
across Africa to Brazil and made our very own custom Havaianas. After, we
jetted off to our final destination of France and we made an Eiffel tower out
of red, white and blue art straws. Ooh la la! International day was all about
the food – from falafel to koshary to gulab jaman to strawberries and cream. It
was a lovely experience celebrating each others’ cultures. Like Mr. Howsen
said: We are all the same and we are all different. It’s a wonderful world!
FS1 Feb 2017
After finishing our jungle theme, we thought there was no
better topic than to follow it in the footsteps of the dinosaurs. Both the boys
and girls have loved playing with the small world dinosaurs in the classrooms
and learning all about the different armour some of the dinosaurs had to
protect them against predators. Did you know that the things on the back of a
stegosaurus are called plates? Or that carnivores like T-rexes have sharp and
pointy teeth while herbivores such as the brontosaurus had more flat, straight
teeth? And did you know we have both kinds of teeth?
Of course, that lead into how we all need to look after our
teeth and our school nurse kindly came in to show us how to look after them.
We’ve also been very, very busy organising some wonderful gifts for our very
special mummies. Shhh! It’s still all under wraps. All will be revealed during
our Mother’s day assembly. Next term, the week starts off with Book Week which
means we get to dress up as our favorite book character on Book Day which is
FS1 March 2017
This term started off
in style with one of Al Muna’s favourite themed weeks – Book Week. In FS1, we
learnt that books are written by people called authors and that the person who
draws the pictures is called an illustrator. We focused on the illustrator
called Axel Scheffeler who draws for quite a few of Julia Donaldson’s books. We
are so familiar with his drawings now, we can pick them out from other
illustrations! This half term’s topic is Fairy Tales. Did you know they usually
start with the words “Once upon a time” and almost always end with “They lived
happily ever after”? And, there’s always a bad guy – the troll, the giant, the
big bad wolf and wicked stepmothers! Our trip to the stables was amazing as we
got to ride on our very own ponies! Also, we have something special in store
for our parents. All we are going to say is that it involves a red cape and a
wolf. Watch this space!
