We have had a fantastic start to the new school year! The children have enjoyed exploring the different areas within the classroom.
Our Visit to Forest Adventurers
Blue Class had a fantastic time at Forest Adventurers. The sun was shining, we climbed trees, lay in the hammocks, and ate chocolate marshmallows!
We have been looking at naming 2D shapes and describing the properties of 2D shapes. The children enjoyed using geo boards and making human geo boards. What shapes can you see?
We are looking at changing materials in Science. We used flour, yeast, butter and water to make our delicious bread buns!
Blue Class were very excited today when school had a surprise visit from our local fire service in their fire engine.
Monday 17th of December
Today we enjoyed a fantastic day at Gibside. In the morning we explored the woods with the amazing staff where we needed to do a very special job for Mrs Clause. Santa's Reindeer had lost their magic food bags. We needed to find one for each of them. Inside each bag related to a different activity related to Christmas or Winter. We found out about hibernation, we were even pretending to be the Hedgehogs going to sleep and waking up in a different season. We sang songs both in English and in German, smelt the herbs associated with Christmas Lunch and found out about Christmas traditions around the world. You will be pleased to hear we found all of the food bags. As a special treat from Mrs Clause we toasted marshmallows. After out treat we decorated the woods with natural materials. After lunch we applied what we had been learning in gymnastics within the natural woodland trail. Some of the bridges and apparatus was very challenging but all of us persevere and achieved each balance and negotiated space successfully to reach the end of the trail.
Mrs Johnson and Miss Hayden would like to thank all parent and carer support in and out of school with our Bookworm project. Over the last 10 weeks the children have read daily and we have seen their confidence and love of reading flourish. We are all so proud of the work and progress the children have made.
