Outdoor Fun!

User Rating:  / 1

This week the children in Foundation have been very excited as they have finally been able to use their new outdoor play equipment!

It was only just two weeks ago that we found out that we had almost £2000 to spend on outdoor equipment. We quickly flipped through catalogues and easily managed to spend this huge amount of money on colourful scooters, cars and bikes. The children have waited patiently while Mr Horne and some very helpful (and handy) parents put everything together!

The pleasure on the children's faces is obvious from the photographs!

I bet they will love using these fabulous new resources as often as they can.

We are all special - Just like Elmer!

This week in Nursery we have been thinking about how special we all are, and have heard stories about an elephant who is really special called Elmer. Our work has helped us to learn our colours but has been a lot of fun too.

Have a look at some of the things that we've been doing!

Exploring Nursery

This week the Nursery children have been staying for full three-hour sessions and enjoying every minute! They have all been coming in beautifully and are beginning to know our routines really well.

They have had a lovely week exploring some of our super resources...

All the children love the opportunity to use ICT with our interactive whiteboards and I-pads.

They also love the more traditional Nursery activities such as reading books, play dough, writing and puzzles.

Trip to Hatton Country World

User Rating:  / 5

What a fantastic day!

On Tuesday a group of nearly seventy of us: children, parents/carers and teachers set off for Hatton Country World in Warwickshire. Despite a lot of traffic we were in high spirits as we arrived...

We were so lucky with the weather as it was a beautiful sunny day making it possible to enjoy all of the facilities at Hatton...

There were animals to feed and mountains to climb... well maybe not mountains, but we had great fun!

Inflateable small

Strange we didn't see our teachers slide down the inflateable. Maybe they weren't brave enough!

Living Things

User Rating:  / 1

This half term we are thinking and learning all about Living Things.

We planted cress seeds and even made a tiny scarecrow so that the birds would stay away. These seeds have now grown into something that we can eat!

We have learned all about what plants need to grow and looked around our school environment for different sorts of plants.

Healthy Lifestyles

We have had a fantastic week learning about how to keep ourselves healthy...

We have used our maths skills to investigate and compare the size of vegetables and their weights.

We have learned all about our bodies, inside and out, and used our matching skills to label some large drawings...

We actually drew around each other to get such large drawings!

We have used our ICT skills (we enjoyed our ICT week last week so much) to create healthy meals on the I-pads...

Fun with ICT

We have had an amazing week working with ICT and having a great time with our learning!

Using the microwave we made jelly - well, our letter of the wek was j! We were amazed that the microwave did what we told it by giving it instructions!

We were so good at giving instructions by pressing buttons, that we were able to move the Beebots around aswell!

The I-pads are great for writing letters on and drawing pictures too.

we also had our very own "Nursery's Got Talent" stage where we tried out the Easyspeak microphones and the cameras.

A favourite, particularly with the boys, was when we used the Remote Controlled cars.

We have also been practising for our Sports Day which we are hoping that Mums, Dads and Grandparents are able to come to on Friday 5th June. See you then!

We have continued our work looking at People Who Help Us and in particular the Police.

Look at how much fun we had looking for footprints...

People Who Help Us in the Community

User Rating:  / 0

For the past couple of weeks we have had a really busy time thinking about all the people who help us in our communities.

We have had many visits including a nurse who brought a first aid kit with lots of bandages in, a dietician who told us which foods were good for us and which were not so good and a fireman who showed us some special heat resistant clothing. We have learned so much and had some fun too! Look at us trying on the fireman's clothes...

We have learned about the role of a dentist and how to clean our teeth properly.

We would like to thank our visitors for coming in to see us. 

People Who Help Us at School

User Rating:  / 0

We have continued our People Who Help Us topic, but have been thinking particularly about the people who help at school.

We have been very lucky with lots of visits and visitors this week...

We popped down to the kitchen to see what Mrs Kingston our cook was doing and while we were there we enjoyed a snack of toast!

Mr Horne came in to tell us about his work and we were even able to help him by picking up some litter and mending some broken things.

Tools small

Mrs Hawksworth took us into the school garden where she has a shed with lots of gardening tools and we planted some seeds. It's important work to make the school look beautiful!

Mrs H visit small

Mrs Juniper came into to talk about the Walking Bus and other ways of keeping safe around roads and traffic. We had lots of fun dressing up as Lollipop people and crossing people over on our zebra crossing.

More fun next week!
