Supertato challenges!

We are loving the book Supertato! The only problem is, the evil pea keeps causing trouble at school. He has thrown potatoes all over the floor and we have had to gather and count them, and he has trapped veggies in the shredded paper! We have been designing and making lots of traps to try to catch him!

A wonderful windy day!

We always think and talk about the weather when we come to school. Today we were delighted to explore the force of the wind, making flags and discovering the feel and the sound of the wind’s power.

Our very own super-potato bread!

We are so lucky to have not only wonderful school grounds, but a fantastic new kitchen in the EYFS. Today we started the day by harvesting our very own potatoes which have been grown at school. We washed them ourselves, then followed a recipe to boil and mash them, adding other ingredients (weighing and measuring carefully) and mixing well. Our bread smelt fantastic as it baked, and we enjoyed sharing it for our snack the next day. We are farmers and chefs, and a family that cooks and eats together!

Incredible Ice Creams and Marvellous Maths!

Reception enjoyed a wonderful “Maths Party” morning today! We have been learning about coins and prices, and have made our own ice cream shop role play area this week, so today we were delighted to experience the real thing! We sorted coins, took on the roles of shopkeepers and cashiers, and served and paid for real ice creams. We even kept a tally chart of how many children chose to have sprinkles! What a yummy way to learn!

Knock-out time in our World Cup competition!

Year 4 and Reception’s top two groups met today in the first knock-out stage of our World Cup penalty shoot out competition! We had great fun and the children showed wonderful sporting attitudes. Egypt (from Reception) and Portugal (from Year 4) are through to the quarter finals! Well done everyone!

Fantastic fun at the farm!

Reception had a WONDERFUL day today at Church farm. We went on a tractor ride, fed alpacas and sheep, met geese and collected eggs from the hen house. Then we held some gorgeous guinea pigs! We enjoyed our lunch, then had a play in the park, and had great fun at the indoor beach and with the pedal tractors. We asked lots of good questions, and learnt such a lot! Have a look at our pictures.

Action shots!

These children are coming on leaps and bounds! Take a look at our fantastic jumping. We were measuring how far we could jump by counting the bricks, then trying to jump even further!

The Three Little Pigs and lots of friends!

This morning lots of our families and friends came to join us to celebrate how we have been learning through the story of “The Three Little Pigs”. We enjoyed showing them how we do character interviews and write news reports in our Newsroom, designed and built houses and dens with a variety of materials, and created our own game called “Chimneys and ladders”. This helped us to act as the story characters and to practice our maths skills! We will be having more fun at 2 o’clock!

Party time!

We enjoyed a little garden party today to join in with the celebrations for the royal wedding at the weekend. We made our own sandwiches, and had a few crisps and cakes too! Over the weekend children will be writing their own news reports.
