The nursery children had a wonderful time at Cockfields farm.
First they went into the reptile house and held and stroked a chameleon, a lizard, all sorts of creepy crawlies and even put a snake around their neck if they dared! Then they scrubbed the tortoises with toothbrushes.
The children then went on to pet and feed the farm animals. We remembered it was important to wash our hands after this! The alpacas were very funny!
Then the children got to hold a bunny and also balance a hen on their shoulders.
After that we did a little bit of forest school and made wands using sticks and ribbons. We then planted our very own beanstalks which have already started to grow!
Finally we had a long play in the imagination village where we pretended to be mechanics, shop keepers, police officers, dancers and much more.
It was a wonderful day out full of learning and happy faces!
Here are some photos of our fabulous children in their costumes for our nativity,
'Away in a Manger'.
Reception had a trip to Manchester Airport to see the aeroplanes. We had a fantastic time!
We got to watch planes take off and land, the runway was very busy! We then got to go on board a real aeroplane and took on the different roles of the airport staff. We even got to sit in the flight deck and pretend to fly the plane!
After reading Handa's Surprise, we cut up the same fruit that she had in her basket and tried them. This included; a banana, an orange, a mango, an avocado and a pineapple.
Thank you to all the parents and carers who joined us for our literacy lesson and activities today. We had a great time!
The Nursery children read the book 'Kipper's Birthday' and then read and made birthday cards and invitations, read party food lists, made playdough cakes and even celebrated a party in the home corner!
The Reception children read the book 'Handa's Surprise' and then completed lots of reading challenges, such as; reading Handa's shopping lists, matching the animal names to the correct fruit, finding key words in the book, sequencing the story, reading fruit labels and printing with paint and making African necklaces by reading instructions.
Lots of fantastic reading!
October 2019 - The reception children used the binoculars they had created at home to go on a bear hunt! We went through the swishy swashy grass, the thick oozy mud, the deep cold river, the deep dark forest, the swirling whirling snowstorm and the narrow gloomy cave. Then we spotted a bear! We quickly made it back to the classroom, locked the door and hid under our coats!
We managed to escape the bear. Phew!
Look at our wonderful nursery heroes! They have spent all week doing hero activities, like making masks and learning hero words, such as 'pow!'.
They finished off the week by coming to school dressed as their favourite hero.
We had a good mix of superheroes and every day heroes.
Lots of fun!
Reception had a visit from the 'Owl Man' called Gareth. He showed us lots of different types of owls and taught us some amazing facts! We got the stroke the owl called 'Kermit' and got to hold him! We even got to see some of the owls fly!
September 2019 - The Bug Lady came to visit us in school! She brought lots of different minibeasts for us to explore, including; stick insects, snails and cockroaches!
We looked carefully at each minibeast and learnt some interesting facts.
We also got to feel and hold some of the minibeasts and some children even had a stick insect crawl up their leg!
We all had great fun and enjoyed looking back at our pictures.
We all had a wonderful time at our Easter Fun Afternoon.
The children had made Easter bonnets and creations at home for the parade and competition. They were fantastic! Well done to everyone and a special well done to our 3 winners; Kate, Savannah and Honey.
We then sang some Easter songs to our grown ups and took part in lots of different Easter Craft activities.
Safer Internet Day 2019
We listened to a story and watched some advice videos about internet safety and discussed how we can stay safe online. We then created posters to share the advice with others.
We recorded ourselves sharing our top tips for internet safety!
