Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Today the children had their visit to Keydell’s nursery! They had an amazing time walking through Santa’s woodland walk where they saw some model penguins, polar bears, and even some real Reindeer, Donkeys, and Goats! We were all very impressed by how well the children behaved and they all had an fantastic time!

An Icy Day at School!

This morning the children had a wonderful surprise when they stepped outside – there was ice everywhere!! The children hunted around the garden to find all of the ice. They found some in the tuff trays, in the water trays, and even in some of the tyres!

They also found some patches of frost on the grass and some of the equipment which they discovered they could write on with their fingers!

The children experimented with the ice all morning watching it melt and break, some children decided to bring some inside to see what would happen to it whilst others set up an arctic small world area complete with polar bears and killer whales!

Tesco and the Party!

When the children found out that our class mascots Jimmy and Flower were going to have a birthday party, the children were very excited!

We began to think about what we might need for their party and where we would get it all from. The children agreed that we would need to go to the shops to buy the food and drink for the party so we decided to go to Tesco’s.

The children really enjoyed their trip to Tesco! They all had a tour of Tesco’s where they were able to go behind the scenes in the bakery to see how the bread was made for our party sandwiches! The children were also allowed to handle some fish and try some cheese!



On Friday the children got to make some jam sandwiches ready for the party in the afternoon!

The children had a wonderful time at the party where we played several games, including; musical bumps, musical statues and the best dancer competition! After some party games the children took Jimmy and Flower to watch the KS1 Nativity as a treat! The children then had some party food and drink to finish of the party!

Shape Walk

Last week we were learning about 2D shapes in number crunch. We decided to go on a shape hunt around the school. The children were brilliant at finding the shapes around the school and even told us the names of the shapes that they found and discussed some of their properties!

Firework Dancing!

Today lots of the the children came into school telling us about all of the lovely fireworks they had seen last week at school and over the weekend! Because of this, we decided to have a fireworks themed P.E lesson! The children thought of all the different sounds they had heard the fireworks making, these are some of the sounds they came up with; Bang!!, wheee!, crackle crackle, fffffff!, and whoosh!

The children were then given a ribbon each and were told to think of an action to go with each sound. We then finished the lesson by performing our very own fireworks display dance!

Pumpkin Soup!

Last week the children had some Pumpkins in their classroom as a part of Pumpkin week! Because of this we decided to read the Pumpkin soup story. After reading the story we thought it would be a great idea to make some of our own Pumpkin soup!

The children quickly got to work peeling, slicing and cutting up the pumpkin and some other vegetables for the soup. The children helped to mix all of the ingredients together in a pot and Mrs Benn put it on the stove to cook!

In the afternoon the children gathered together on the carpet to try some. We spoke a bit about what we thought it would taste like, smell like and look like and then brought the soup out to the children to try. The children were very good at trying the soup and some of them really liked it and drank the whole lot!
