We found a snail!

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.

Making Play Dough

The Nursery children made their own play dough. They had to mix flour, salt and water together. They had to make sure they didn’t use too much water. The children used pipettes and turkey basters to suck up the water. It was tricky but they persevered.  It did get a bit messy but they had great fun! 

Ice sculptures

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!

Mission X after school club

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.

Book Day 2018

This year our book topic for Book Day was Little Red Riding Hood and we had three little Red Riding Hoods.  The children had fun learning the story and making their own story maps.  We also learnt a song about the colour red.  

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.


More Snow and Ice

What a week we have had!  So much snow!  The children have had a marvellous time.  At PE they discovered that it is more difficult to run in the snow.  The children went out onto the grass and they built a snowman.  The next day there was even more snow!  It has been great fun.  Here are a few photos.

World Book Day 2018

Where did the Nursery children go today? They were replaced by lots of book characters!

We had: Spider-Man, Batman, Captain America, a pirate, Room on the Broom, Wally, Minnie Mouse and a Princess.

They all had fun playing in the snow on another snowy day.



Snowy Fun

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!
