As Time Goes By Club Session 2

Today the children went on their second visit to share time together with the older members of the community at Trinity Church Cafe.  The children took their chicks with them to introduce to their new friends.

The children began by sharing their experience of hatching chicks with everyone.

We then all shared a story together about Dora’s eggs.

The children and adults then shared a craft activity making pictures about the story of Dora and her chicks.

To finish out time together we finished with Rhyme Time – the children chose some of their favorite Nursery Rhymes to sing.

Chick Update

The children have been busy looking after the chicks since they have hatched.

The children had to set up a brooder box for the chicks to move into once they had left the incubator.

The children have been enjoying the chicks – giving them lots of cuddles, and having fun with them.

 

Congleton museum

On Monday 29th April we went on a trip to Congleton museum, we learnt lots about the history of Congleton and lots about the industrial revolution, the civil war and the plague.

We had such a great time and did some amazing writing following on from this. Thank you to our parent helpers.

Investigating plants

In Year 2 this morning we have been outside looking at all of the different plants and flowers we can see in our environment. We talked about why plants and flowers begin to grow at certain times of the year. We knew that plants need sunlight to grow but realised that some plants don’t grow in the winter even though the sun is shining. As we are super plant detectives we quickly noticed that it needs to be a certain temperature for the plants to grow as well as having sunlight. Some plants and flowers can survive in lower temperature in comparison to others who need a much warmer temperature.

The UK

Our new topic is ‘The UK and Far Away’. This week in our Geography lesson, we used different maps and atlases to locate each of the 4 countries of the UK and identify their flags.

Length and Height

This week in maths, we have been working on length and height. We have been using different words to compare the length and height of people and object and also used concrete resources, using both standard and non-standard units of measurement.

Special Delivery…

At the start of the week, Mrs Bennett arrived with a large envelope for Nursery. We opened the envelope to find a letter from a meerkat called Sunny… all the way from the Kalahari desert! Sunny sent a copy of ‘Meerkat Mail’ with his note, for us to learn all about his adventures in our new English focus text.

Week Beginning – 29.4.19

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.

Creating Shape Pictures

This week preschool have been learning about 2D shapes. We have looked at a circle, rectangle, square, triangle, diamond and a star. We have completed a shape hunt and even created shapes using string. Lastly, we have created our very own shape pictures using all the shapes we have learnt about.
