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.

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

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

“You listen to the music and dance and walk around the carpet and when the music stops you stop at a word and read it.  You hold the picture up and whoever has got the word gets the picture”

Maths 3D Shape Challenge!

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 8:21am

Today we worked together to choose the best 3D shapes to create a vehicle. We used construction that would let the passengers sit inside and we used shapes that were flat to create the body and long shapes for the wings.

Ramp Investigation

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 8:20am

Today we have been investigating like scientists.  We wanted to know the answer to a question

What is the best ramp for a car to travel down?

What we did:

We made ramps using the large construction, long building bricks and the big baskets. We put cars on the ramps when we had finished and we watched how they went down the ramps.

What we found out:

The bumpy basket ramp was slower than the smooth wooden ramp. This is because the bumps slow the cars down.

Symmetry Butterflies

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 8:19am

Today we completed an independent paired learning challenge.  Our task was to create a beautiful pattern for a butterfly with a partner. We had to remember to make sure we use the same patterns, colours and positions as our partners did so it was symmetrical.

We love Manchester!
