This week in the Nursery…

The morning class have been enjoying the literacy focus ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and have engaged in activities such as drawing their own pigs, creating story maps and making their own straw, stick and brick houses! Our little Rock Stars have also had fun putting on shows for everybody, singing and playing instruments.

The afternoon Class enjoyed using scales to measure rainbow rice and other things in the nursery to see which pots have more or less. They also enjoyed a lot of junk modelling and another visit from Sportacus!

Both classes celebrated Saint George’s Day on Monday and had the opportunity to create their own dragons, make the English flag and they all listened to the Story of Saint of George.

On Wednesday All the children took part in the Sponsored Bounce organised by the TFA. Well done to all the children for gaining so many sponsors and doing so many bounces!

This week has been an exciting week for the staff who have been taking part in ‘Staff Challenge week’ the challenge was to create a healthy cooking activity with a clear learning intention and risk assess the activity. The children made mini edible gardens, cream cheese and fruit rice cakes, salad pitta pockets, healthy wraps and a fruit salad. Well done to all staff, the children really enjoyed all the activities 🙂

This week in the Nursery…

The children in the morning have been having fun and getting messy feeling different malleable materials such as creating slime and making ‘Gloop’ with Corn flour. The children discussed the textures and enjoyed helping to make them, measuring out the ingredients. We took full advantage of the sunshine and had fun on the field, racing hoops down the hill to see who could roll theirs the furthest and  practicing for Sports Day!

The children in the afternoon have been exploring the instrument box making different sounds and creating music for their friends. Due to the children expressing a lot of interest in playing ‘restaurants’ the role play area was transformed into a pizza parlour where the children enjoyed making ‘pizzas’ and serving their friends, counting the orders and money. They had a nice surprise when Sportacus came in to do some activities with the children and we look to forward to having more fun with them in the coming weeks 🙂

All the children enjoyed sharing their Easter news, thank you for sharing it with us all!

 

               

   

 

Building a Go-Kart

Six members of year 6 are lucky enough to be able to take part in a project which includes building a go-kart. Two children from each class in year 6 are working in teams of 3 to create a go-kart that will be raced when finished. Each week we meet working on it in stages, near the end a design is put on the go-kart. A lot of hard work goes into it.

Here is a pic collage showing what they have done so far.
