This week the Nursery children found a snail. They decided to make a home for it so they cut some leaves and grass using scissors, and put in some old apple cores. Mrs Power found a book about a snail called ‘The Snail Trail’ by Ruth Brown. It is about the journey of a snail. The children watched the snail they had found very closely and used lots of prepositional language to describe the journey. The snail kept escaping from it’s home and even made its way onto the side of a drum! At the end of the session the children put the snail very carefully back into its habitat.
The children in year 1 as part of their art topic learned about ice sculptures. We wrote instructions in English for how to make a sculpture and talked about the material of ice in science. We think the sculptures look amazing, its a shame they had to melt!
Congratulations to the year 3, 4 and 5 children who have completed level 1. You have now completed level 2 by learning about what happens to the astronauts bones in space, researching our galaxy, completing an agility course and completing some exercises that astronauts do as part of their training.
In the afternoon we had a book quiz based on our favourite books in Reception. The children wrote their answers on their whiteboards. Their first ever quiz! Everybody did very well. Here are a few pictures of our day.
The Nursery children loved playing in the snow. They loved the sound it makes when you walk on it.
“It goes crunch!”
We made a snowman – although it was very tricky as the snow was so soft and fluffy! The children reminded us what we needed.
“We need a carrot!”
“We need a hat!”
“We need gloves!”
We had so much fun!
