Today was the Nursery Class sports day. Thank you to all who attended - it was really lovely for the children to have the support of their families. The children were amazing and tried their best in all of the activities. We are very proud of their behaviour, but most of all it was wonderful to see you all enjoying yourselves!
Well done to all those who took part in the adult races as well, it all contributed to making the day a huge success.
Week beginning 24th June 2017
This week we had a worrying letter , saying HELP! Tinkerbelle had been kidnapped by Captain Hook and locked up in the pirates ship. We had to rescue her!
We went outside and made maps, telescopes and a camp for the lost boys. We also made a look out post to keep an eye out for those pesky pirates! We have lots of ideas to help Tinkerbelle . To keep our spirits and energy levels up we made porridge breakfast for the lost children.
During the week we also thought about what it would be like to be a lost child. Would we miss our Mums? Would we be able to cook, wash and look after ourselves? We decided we wouldn't like it ! We love our Mums!
Week Beginning 5th June 2017
Welcome to the second half of the summer term. We shall begin with traditional tales. Making a link between our last theme of Growth, we began with the 'Frog Prince' a tale originally told by the Grimm Brothers. We retold the story with our castle, as well as making our own crowns and golden balls to use as props for our own version. In the garden a Gingerbread house appeared - it looks yummy but not good enough to eat!
As part of our banquet we tasted different sorts of bread and made a graph to show our favourite. Garlic was a clear winner, with tiger bread coming a close second. The children were all very good tasting others as well such as pitta, coconut and raisin naan, granary, and wraps. They didn't need much lunch and tea when they left school!
This week Jack has been climbing the beanstalk! We have entered a world of Giants, magic beans and the children have been using their imagination to immerse themselves in the tale. The small world has been used to add detail as the children used story language to support their Talk4Writing this week. Outside we made a plan on how to build a Giant's castle, but then had to adapt it as we discovered the roof was too low!
There was a lot of team work and negotiation before we reached the final design with added flowers to create the ideal giant's home.
