Nursery’s First Weeks

We have had LOTS of fun in the first few weeks of Spring Term. We have welcomed some new friends, played with Reception and settled in beautifully. In RE, we have been looking at the topic of Celebrations and talked about what celebrations are and what decorations we need for them. We had a pretend birthday party for Freya and all prepared special food. We are having so much fun learning!

Music Lesson

Nursery loved their first music lesson of the Spring term with Mr. Larkin! They practised using the beaters to find the  rhythm of some songs. Every child sang their name to Mr. Larkin in front of the group, showing great confidence!

Year 2 attend the Epiphany Service

Year 2 attended the Epiphany Service at the Metropolitan Cathedral last Friday. We sang well known Christmas Hymns and three members of our class dressed up as the Three Kings. Year 2 were wonderfully behaved, as usual, and represented our school so well.

Mud kitchen fun!

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.

Making 2D shapes

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!

Melting – does everything melt?

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!

Year 3’s edible soil!

Year 3 began a new science topic today called ‘Rocks and Soils’. We looked at a soil profile and discovered the different sections that make up the world beneath our feet! We then made our own version of a soil profile using various ingredients to represent the bedrock, parent material, subsoil, topsoil and organic material. Take a look!
