Keeping healthy!

This week we have been focusing on how to keep our bodies healthy. The children have enjoyed learning about the importance of our skeletons too and creating their own in the art area.

The children have also written about how to keep our bodies healthy.

In RE the children learnt about the sacrament of Baptism. We looked at photos from when the children had their baptisms and then rein-acted our own using dolls from the role play and water.

We had a great time at our Carnival on Friday afternoon. The children performed their song and dance so well.

We hope you have a great weekend.

Exploring materials

This week we have enjoyed exploring materials. A mermaid wrote to us to say she had lost some of her scales and needed us to find a way to make her new ones that are waterproof, bumpy, strong and shiny. The children tested the materials in the water and then used the language to describe the properties.

The children then wrote to the mermaid to explain what material they thought was best to use for her scales and why.

The children also really enjoyed getting into role as a mermaid and imagining they were swimming through the ocean looking at different sea creatures.

The children also enjoyed experience touching and feeling a real fish that we bought into school to explore. We talked about what adjectives we could use to describe the texture and smell of the fish.

The children had a great time at their Sports Day this week. All children worked really hard to partake as a team.

We hope you have an enjoyable weekend.

The snail and the whale

This week we have been looking at the book the snail and the whale! We have been making whale art from paper palates and making a slit in the plate so the whale can move. Some children even decorated the plate with paint and paper to represent the whale swimming under water.

The weather has been beautiful this week so lots of children did discovery outside. Some of the boys worked together to create a car track from rain pipe tubes and Experiment with the angle of the tube and how fast the car would move. They even added water to make it a water track!

We have been exploring the concept of sharing amounts equally in maths. We have been using teddy’s on a picnic with plates to do practise sharing. The children pretended that the multilink was different foods like blackberries, blueberries and strawberries!

Have a lovely weekend, enjoy the sun!
