History - The Great Fire of London
After learning all about the Great Fire of London the children thought about their senses and what they would have seen, heard, touched and tasted. They used role play to act out the historic event and created some fabulous art work.
We used the story "Were Going on a Bear Hunt" by Michael Rosen as a basis for us to create our own hunt. The children created a picture of their version of this story and included a slider or a lever to make their pictures come to life.
Into the Woods
In literacy we listened to the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' and used adjectives to describe settings. In speaking and reading we retold the story using the repetitive phrases and in the role play area we set up a cave to act out the story.
Chetwynd Deer Park
We all had a lovely time at Chetwynd Deer park. The children enjoyed looking for signs of Autumn. We looked at some photographs of Natural sculptures by Andy Goldsworthy and then used natural materials from Chetwynd Deer Park to create our own natural artwork.
It was wonderful to see such a variety of homework based around new and old toys. Thank you for supporting your child at home to complete their projects.
Weston Park School Trip
We all had a wonderful day at Weston Park learning about the lives of children from rich and poor families from the past. We found out about how they lived and how they played. Everyone had the opportunity to get dressed up in Victorian clothes and play with some old toys. It was great fun participating in the workshop to make a cup and ball toy and afterwards the children enjoyed playing with them. There was a large variety of outdoor toys and games for the children to experience and everyone had fun giving all the activities a try.
On our visit to Exotic Zoo the children saw some amazing creatures. Everyone had the opportunity to get up close to spiders, chameleons, tree frogs, snakes, meerkats, millipedes and much, much more. We learned all about their natural habitats, how they adapt to their environment for survival and what they like to eat. Most children touched or held the animals and thoroughly enjoyed the day.
Literacy - Supertato
In Literacy we listened to the story of Supertato. The Year 1's wrote wanted posters for the Evil Pea and notes from him to promise that he wouldn't hurt the other vegetables anymore. The children in reception thought of ways to stop him and made traps to catch him.
Reception - Our First Week in School
These are a few photos of some activities we chose do do during our first week in school.
We are finding out why we are all ‘super’ and that we are all different. We are setting ourselves challenges to see what we can do. Year 1s are gathering, recording and sorting data to answer questions like ‘Who has the largest hands in our class?’
