Learning about our ‘Special Sound of the Week’.

We have really busy in nursery today learning about our special sound. We completed a range of phonic activities on the iPads, made the letter ‘a’ out of  ‘Wikki stix’, wrote the letter in shaving foam and finger painted it too. We even went outside to practise our letter formation with chalk.

Nursery’s Treasure Hunt.

As part of our Children in Need activities, Mrs Keegan kindly organised a treasure hunt. The nursery children were very excited as they were able to look all around  the school for clues. The year 6 children helped the little ones to follow the map and to find the final clue that spelt ‘Pudsey’. Thank you Mr Keegan and year 6, we had a wonderful time.

Year 4 got outside this afternoon as part of their science investigation into filtering and cleaning water. They collected shells, stones and rocks and have planned their investigation ready for later in the week.

They also completed some difficult literacy challenges, including using a cypher to decode a word, and worked on drawing and interpreting graphs and charts.

RSPB visit to Year 1

The wet weather didn’t dampen the spirits of the Year 1 children as they enjoyed our Wild Words session with the RSPB. The children loved exploring our outdoor environment and used a range of equipment to heighten their senses further. We discussed and used lots of different vocabulary and adjectives to describe what was around us. Thank you to Sarah and Wendy for such a fun, informative session.

Fabulous Fireworks!

What a busy couple of days we have had with all our firework themed activities. We made lovely glittery firework pictures,  designed our own bonfire night rocket, made fireworks out of sparkly play dough, made big firework pictures outside using different coloured chalks and we played firework pairs and number matching  games.  We even had time to make an edible breadstick sparkler. Delicious!

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!
