Working together to succeed in life


We have been looking at travel and transport with the children over the last month. We decided to learn about France and all the exciting things that go on there. We did some baking of french bread for us to eat during our french day.

This half term we have been looking at the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar. The children have enjoyed making the objects from the story using a variety of different media, acting out the story using the props and tasting lots of different foods that the caterpillar ate. we then made a fabulous display in our classroom of the story.

We have been really lucky this half term to have real life chicks in school. We have watched them hatch out of the eggs while in the incubator and then move into a larger cage to run free. The children have loved watching the chicks grow and really enjoyed looking after them. Some children got chance to hold the chicks and then we have created lots of different representations of them. 

A big thank you to all the children and parents who have complete the Autumn and Winter home learning challenge.

As you can see they have worked really hard and produced some fabulous work.

In Nursery we have learning about people who help us. The children have been practising their doctor skills and have used plasters and bandages to make people better. I'm sure you will agree they are experts already.

The fire brigade came to visit a class in our school. We thought it would be a good opportunity to find out all about what fire fighters do.

They even let us wear the safety hats. See at how great we look! 

For our Diwali topic the children have created, divas, rangoli patterns, lanterns and chalk pictures.

In nursery we have been creating poppies to remember the people who died in the war. The children have loved exploring poppies using different media and materials. 

What a busy half term we have had in Nursery! We have seen lizards, snakes, scorpions and lots more with a visit from Zoo Lab. We even got to touch them, we were really brave.
