The children came into school this morning and 3 of the eggs had hatched!
The children were very excited to see the chicks this morning.
Nursery had lots of fun today in PE. The children had to jump, crawl, run and bounce as they pretended to be a dinosaur. The children then had to try and aim the beanbag into the hoop.
This week in our Maths work the children have been learning about the differences between flat and solid shapes.
The children have learnt about cubes, cuboids, spheres, cylinders, cones and pyramids.
The children have then made models with solid shape building bricks. They made houses, castles, robots, animals, boats and trains.
Today the children in Reception went along to our first ‘As Time Goes By’ Club.
We are taking the children to work with older members of our community at Trinity Methodist Café every month for a range of stories, music, crafts and activities.
We began our session by giving the older people a small gift and postcard we had made yesterday, we then all made pictures of ourselves – young and old.
We enjoyed our snack time and finished our club with Rhyme Time singing songs and rhymes.
This morning the children in Reception and Nursery had a stay and play event with their families.
All of the activities at the stay and play session were based around the area of Maths.
In Nursery we have made lots of lovely Easter treats. We began by making Easter nests by breaking the chocolate and then mixing in the cornflakes. We then carefully spooned the mixture into the cake cases and sprinkled chocolate over the top. The children then used the left over chocolate to create Easter shaped treats.
Some of the children have had the opportunity to work with our school therapy dog – Coco.
In our Maths work this week we have been using the part part whole representation to solve addition number problems.
In our Science work we have been continuing with learning about different materials. We have learnt about what objects are magnetic. We went on a magnetic hunt using magnets.
Today Nursery have enjoyed visiting people who help us. We went to see the firefighters at the fire station and saw the fire engine. We learnt about what the firefighters have to wear when there is a fire and we even got to fire the water. We then walked sensibly back to school to enjoy our healthy snack!
On Wednesday morning we had an assembly to share and talk about all of the learning and activities we had done throughout science week.
It was really interesting to hear and see what a fantastic job all of the classes had done. Mrs Daley was particularly impressed with the way there were lots of cross curricular links to all of the other subjects including English, Maths, PE, forest schools and many more. Thank you to everybody for all of their hard work and to the children for sharing their fantastic learning.
A huge well done to our competition winners! Ethan from reception, Zac from class 4 and Cesare from class 4. The competition was to design and make a poster for British science week linked to the topic of journeys. We had some fantastic entries.
