For the last 2 weeks I’m science, we have been testing the suitability of different materials for making sandcastles. Jensen thought some materials were too dry, so this week, we added water and retested them. Incredible work, using scientific vocabulary, noticing similarities and differences, and exploring changes.
We washed our hands, selected healthy fruits and chopped them up with knives and apple corers to make yummy fruit salad today. We talked about how to use the tools safely, what to do if we dropped food on the floor, or if we coughed on the food. Then the children shared the fruit they had prepared between the bowls.0 Comments
Thanks to all the parents who joined us for Mouse Club Maths and stay and play last week. It was great to see you all playfully engaging in maths with your little ones! I’d love to know how you get on at home.One Comment

We had a marvellous morning playing in the mud kitchen! The children made potions and hot drinks for each other, they dug holes and planted potatoes. We noticed lots of new flowers starting to break through the soil ready for spring and tidied up some of the leaves from Autumn.0 Comments
Today, we used challenge cards to make 2D shapes from lollipop sticks. We are developing our knowledge of the properties of shapes, such as the number of corners and the number of sides. Some of us can even explain the difference between a square and a rectangle!0 Comments
We have been learning about what happens to water when it gets cold or hot. We learned that ice melts when it gets warm. We left it in different places to see how it melts at different rates. The ice we left on the radiator melted first.
We we wondered what else melts… we tried chocolate ✅ and butter ✅. I love that 10 children went home and tested butter and chocolate with their parents!0 Comments

We have had a great start to International Week in Nursery and Reception, with the children enjoying learning about Poland and Polish culture. We have been making Polish cucumber dip, and can’t wait to try it later! We have also been exploring symmetry in Polish folk art called Wycinanki, making our own designs by cutting and sticking indoors, or using natural materials outside. Then we had some very special visitors! Zuzanna, Maia and Victoria came to to tell us all about going to school in Poland, read some Polish poetry and tell us about national traditional dress. Thank you so much girls! Dziękuję!0 Comments

In Early Years, we have started our new book, Grandad’s Secret Giant. We have learned lots of new vocabulary, discovered an enormous tooth brush and have been making traps to see if we can catch our own giant! The children have been drawing pictures of the giant with huge pencils too!0 Comments
