In the Nursery this week…

We have been exploring the topic of “Down on the Farm” this week and the children were very excited to receive a visit from Nepicar Farm! They all had the opportunity to see a variety of small farm animals including chickens and lambs and even got to take a sheep for a walk around the playing field!

Arthur Visit Egypt

Egypt

Arthur class have been studying Africa and, during International Week, learned about how the Nile benefits the Egyptians and created fact sheets.

Mr Adams set his classroom up as an airline cabin – complete with cockpit noise in the background – and dressed up as a pilot. Mrs Price wore her Virgin Atlantic air hostess outfit.

The children had boarding passes and were invited onto the plane as they flew to Egypt. Videos of Egypt were played as they ‘flew’ over the country.

Year 2 celebrated the end of the Knights and Castes in true medieval style. Lords, ladies, knights, jesters even an executioner arrived at Tubbenden Castle to feast and make merry. The children learnt to joust using their own shields and swords followed by a mannerly medieval dance. All the children gathered for the feast where children used their own bread as a ‘plate’ as was the custom in medieval times. In the final event, children’s castles were under attack from home made trebuchets! A fabulous day to remember.

The afternoon children had lots of fun working in pairs to trace the outline of their shadows with chalk. They then stepped away and added features to the outlines such as hair and eyes. Even the teachers got to join in!

With so many of the nursery children interested in learning to write their names we have been putting in lots of practise and making the most of our interactive white board in the process as you can see.

Learning letters and sounds using the interactive white board is great fun! Here the children are pairing pictures to letters and matching the phonic sounds.

Year 1 trip the Tubbenden Meadow

Last Wednesday Year 1 set off (despite the threat of wet weather) on a walk to the local meadow. Our aim was to spot all the plants and flowers we had been learning about in our Science topic.

We managed to spot quite a few different plants and flowers including a dog rose, daisy and dandelion.

The children coped brilliantly with the wet and windy conditions (although their spotter sheets didn’t survive the rain).

A big thank you to the parent helpers who made the trip possible.
