We have had a very busy last two weeks to the half term. We have loved visiting people around our school as part of the People Who Help Us theme. We have helped Mr Horne tidy, fix and paint. We loved visiting the school kitchen and dinning hall with Mrs Kingston and Mrs Rogers who made us toast and showed us a special cucumber chopping machine. We loved eating our toast like the 'big children' in the dinning hall. When we got back we made our own kitchen role play and went shopping for food. We also loved finding out about Mrs Hawkesworth's job, looking after the school gardens. We helped her tidy Abigail's Garden.

Emergency Services

User Rating:  / 1

Wow! An exciting two weeks finding out how the Police Service and Fire Service help us. We were so lucky to have a visit from PC Francome and PC Branton and Firefighter Dixon.

PC Francome showed us her uniform and all the diffrerent equipment she needs to carry with her. We got to sit in PC Branton's police car and turn on the blue flashing lights.

Firefighter Dixon showed us all the equipment and uniform he needs to wear when fighting fires. He let some of us try on his uniform. It was very heavy.

We enjoyed doing lots of activities but our favourites were 'Police Dog training' and testing reflective materials for a Firefighter's uniform in our dark den with the torches.

We have had such an exciting week. Two days of dress ups and pretending. First of all we dresssed up as Pirates to kick start our new topic 'Ship Ahoy'. What fun we had learning about what pirates wear, counting pirate flags, visiting the Acorn's pirate ship to practice walking the plank. Lots of us enjoyed digging in the sand to find treasure and the new role play was a big hit too.

Going on a Bear Hunt

User Rating:  / 2

Nursery have been busy these last two week reading Bear stories and finding information about real bears! Our favourite story was 'Going on a Bear Hunt' and our real bear hunt around the school grounds was a real hit. Thanks to the diggers and tractors we even had squelchy mud to walk through on our journey. We put some mud in our messy tray and some children couldn't wait to squish their hands in it. We have been finding out about Teddy bears from the past and how they are different from new teddies. We set up a bear hospital to look after the old bears! We have been learning 'p' this week and the children have loved making all things 'pirate' (we can't wait till our next topic -Ship Ahoy!) and learning facts about polar bears and panda bears.
