This week we took our leaning about musical instruments outside. We had a fun time making up our own songs and the backing tracks.
We have been very interested in our baby role play area this week. We had an opportunity to dress up as Doctors and Nurses and weigh, measure and listen to our babies heart beat in our pop up clinic. To bring our learning into the real world we had the exciting opportunity to have a real baby visit our class! A very big thank you to Mrs Arrowsmith and baby Benjamin for the pleasure. We learnt about feeding and changing nappies and about how he has discovered his tongue!
We have been learning about ordering numbers from 1 -10.
Sadly our time at Forest School came to an end on Monday. The fairy King , Frank , came through on his promise though and we all got to toast marshmallows on an open fire.
FOREST SCHOOL at last!!! We have been so excited for our turn and we were not disappointed. It was such a mild day we got to build fairy houses for when the colder days close in.
This week we had an author , Holly Ryan, read us the book she had written. It was all about a Pirate princess. The children got to ask her some questions about the book.
Dress down day for Children in need . The children looked lovely and had a great day!
Staying safe on our roads is very important and crossing the road correctly is an important skill. This week we all learnt how to cross the road safely and how to look out for cars. We used our sense of sight and hearing to help us.
We had a great time at our stay and learn last week. Look at us all in action!
Happy Hop tu naa!!
We have had a wonderful day where we got to dress up and our whole day was based Hop tu naa.
We made potions ......
And brought in our carved moots.
Who knew building towers with multilink cubes could help us develop our maths understanding of more, less, taller and shorter. So much rich mathematical language in action!
As part of our Farm to Fork topic we had the Isle of Man Creamery come and visit us at school.
We tasted 2 delicious Manx cheeses.
We had great fun making our own butter! Lots of shaking and tired little arms later we had made our own butter. Hopefully it went onto a lovely slice of warm toast when it got home:)
Our fascination has led us to explore the wonderful red cabbage this week. We have used our science to explore and experiment.
We felt it and smelt it and tasted it. Then we cut it up and looked at the dye on our hands.
Our fascination then led us to soak the cabbage overnight to see if the water would change colour. We have had a lot of fun measuring the water into bottles and using our fine motor skills to manipulate the pipettes.
This week we have enjoyed learning a 'Mr McGregors garden' dance with Laura our dance teacher.
Going quietly and slowly through the cabbages..
Trying not to get caught...
Oh dear - the cat has spotted us!
We have had a wonderful time getting to know our new environment.
We explored the maths area and tried our hand at weighing out the puzzle pieces.
We played in the sand and measured out how much sand could fit into each tube.
Then we made some awesome models at the construction table.
