It's Snowing!

Date: 26th Mar 2019 @ 7:34pm

The first snow fell in January during the morning mat time. We were so excited we just had to go outside, get our coats on and stand in the cold air as the snow fell on our coats and noses and hair...


Pancake Creations

Remembrance Day Centenary

Date: 14th Nov 2018 @ 8:30pm

To mark this important occasion and to understand more about what Remembrance Day is, we have been finding out about the symbol we see all around us, the poppy.

We started our day looking at old photos of soldiers and then used our 100 square to try ti understand how long 100 years is. We are only 4 or 5 years old. Count to 5. That doesnt take very long does it? Try counting to 46 ( our teacher is that old!).  That took a lot longer. Imagine how long 100 years is. "WOWWWW", said William, "That's really really long, a long time"

We then created poppies and pictures using our own choice of materials before standing together holding hands to show respect for all soldiers, past and present. It was a calm and thoughtful time for us today.

Following on from learning about lots of different celebrations, today we began to learn about Diwali.

We learned about the story of Rama and Sita and  how they fought the 10 headed demon Ravana. As they were a long way from home in the story, Hindu people light diva lamps and put them in their windows to guide them safely home. Here are picture of the indepndent work we did to learn more.

Here is a link to Watch the story of Rama and Sita

Can you guess what we are making to guide Rama and Sita home?

Step 1: Make a pinch pot and add a pattern inside using tools.


(Spoiler Alert: They may be lighting up your windowsill very soon!)

Bonfire Night Celebrations

Date: 14th Nov 2018 @ 8:13pm

This week we have been creating poems, printing and painting shape pictures and making bonfire crafts for Bonfire Night. Such a busy time learning about celebrations this half term!

On Bonfire Night, at five o'clock I bought rocket and it went whoosh, pop, crackle, bang,sizzle.



Hubble Bubble Halloween Potions

Apple Bobbing Halloween Fun

Date: 14th Nov 2018 @ 8:02pm

To learn about how people celebrate Halloween, we had lots of fun bobbing for apples this afternoon. It's very tricky and we needed to be patient and also very careful. Holding the apple in your teeth at the end was both funny and very rewarding.

Sports Day 2018

Date: 14th Nov 2018 @ 7:44pm

After our first sports day was cancelled due to the fabulous Manchester weather, we finally got to show off our physical skills to our parents this morning. We have been practicing with our teachers so we could run the relay, complete the obstacle course, play the parachute game and ride the bike track using imagination and skill and of course doing so safely. Oh and don't foret the amazing fun run our adults joined us for at the end! Afterwards, we invited our grown-ups in to cool down in front of the whiteboard with a mindfulness Go Noodle session.

Choosing Autumn Crafts

Date: 14th Nov 2018 @ 7:35pm

When we are learning, our teachers think it important that we have choices about how we create representations of objects we are learning about. This week we have we spent time choosing from lots of different craft activities. We could choose to create a leaf owl, a popcorn tree, a harvest hen and a clay hedgehog. Some of us chose to make all of these things! We also decided it would be good for us to display some our our work too, on the seasons board in Miss Wolfenden's classroom


Sean the Super City Coach

Date: 14th Nov 2018 @ 7:26pm

On Fridays we are very lucky to have Sean visiting us. He plays games and helps us to use our imaginations to improve our Physical Development skills. The best bit is that even if it's raining, we don't stop our sessions because of our awesome new Physical area. Take a look at some of the games we played today. 


Autumn Salad

Date: 14th Nov 2018 @ 7:21pm

To continue our healthy food choices, today we created our own Autumn Salad by tasting and talking about what we had eaten. We were very adventurous, trying new and interesting foods that we don't usually eat at home. This is an important part of our learning - to try new things and have a go.


Yummy Harvest Soup

Date: 14th Nov 2018 @ 7:09pm

Today we created a yummy and healthy favourite - Harvets Soup! Using a variety of seasonal vegetables and some seriously safe knife skills we cut, cooked and then ate our very own creation. You can see how much we loved it.  If you want to know how, just pop in to class and ask us laugh
