This week the Safety Soldiers pupil voice group worked on gathering ideas for improving road safety outside our school. The children discussed the issues and how unsafe parking affects different people. They came up with some fantastic ways to improve road safety, and will be working on them in the coming weeks.

Let’s be Friends!

nursery and Reception have begun their week thinking about friendship! We read ‘Hugless Douglas’ by David Melling, and realised that we can all be good friends!

The session began with the children creating a handprint poster, showing of their ‘Helping Hands’, they made some beautiful heart toast with a friend. There is more to come later today with friendship bracelets, and making a mobile.

Pumpkin Investigations!

After the fun morning with nursery, Reception set to work investigating the properties of a pumpkin. We described how it’s skin felt, measured how tall they were, we rolled them and even found out if they could float or if they would sink…… Do you know?

Pumpkin Fun.

The nursery and reception children have had a busy morning participating in lots of pumpkin themed activities. First of all they listened to the story “Pumpkin Soup” before going outside for lots of pumpkin fun. They hammered pegs into pumpkins, made pumpkin collages, made pumpkins out of play dough, and sponge painted bowls to look like pumpkins. They even had a “Roll the pumpkin” competition to see who could roll their pumpkin the furthest! To finish the morning off they had a nice bowl of soup to warm them up. Delicious!

Shwmae!

For Nursery and Reception today, we found out what it means to be a friend. We played some circle time games encouraging us to find new, old, or different friends to work with.

We also had fun shouting SHWMAE! and making hats to show how proud we are.

Reception challenged themselves to say ‘Shwmae’ as many times as they could in 20 seconds, and played the ‘Shwmae’ game.

Fabulous Faces!

Reception have been exploring the features on their faces, we looked at some faces without eyes and mouths, the children decided that we needed both to work out how we feel.

We had some fun creating our own faces using pumpkins and biscuits, yummy!
