Nature Trail

On Wednesday we went on a nature trail around the school to find as many natural things as we could! We found loads of things, including leaves, stones, plants, branches, and even a mushroom! When we got back into the classroom, each group put their natural items into groups. See can you guess the groups below!

Our trip to the library!

On Thursday we took a trip down to the library! The children got to read loads of books and listened to the story "The Lonely Beast". Encourage your children to use the library on a regular basis, it's a fantastic place for children to practise & improve their reading and to develop a love for reading! 


We had another great start to the week with relaxation! This week we pretended to be animals and trees. Can you guess what we were trying to be in the pictures below?

Clay art

Last week and this week we were also busy creating clay pinch pots and painting them. See below for lots of very concentrated artists!

Story Nanna and Science Week

Phew! What a busy week we've had! On Thursday Story Nanna read the class two lovely stories which taught us about "unfounded fear".

Following that, as last week was Science Week, we were incredibly lucky to have a mobile cinema come to visit us! 

A very mad scientist showed us a few very interesting experiments focusing on design and make...

This, believe it or not, is the wing of an airplane flying through the air!! 
The plunger acts as the airplane wing, with the kitchen roll acting as the air. We applied a leaf blower as wind and got a great shock! 

We also set off a rocket in the cinema. Can't see it? ....It's that yellow balloon! We learned that the direction which the balloon is facing is important for where we want it to go (the Moon). Do you think it'll make it? 

We also created heat through mixing water and calcium. Don't believe us? Try it for yourself! (Adults only) 

To finish, we watched two other 'scientists' called Wallace and Gromit as they experimented with 'The Wrong Trousers' and went to the moon on a rocket ship! 

We all had a fantastic time!
