In the Nursery this week we have shared the story Kipper’s Monster. In the story Kipper thinks there is a monster outside his tent, it wasn’t a monster he could hear but does anyone remember what is was? Following the story we have made handprint monsters by mixing colours together. This week we have been learning about shapes the children have worked hard to name circles, triangles, rectangles and squares and can even talk about some of there properties, Superstars! The children then created their own monsters using lots of different shapes.
We hope you enjoy the photo video and would love to read any comments you children have made.
In the Nursery we have been learning about the pets we have, or would like. Thank you so much to Poppy W who bought in her lovely pet hamster to show to her friends.
The Strawberry Group had a lovely visit to Longton Library last week, we hope you are enjoying the stories you chose to take home.
Here are the very proud recipients of our Tony Hughes Awards for the last two weeks. Well done Jake, Woody, Layla and Darci-Jade we are all very proud of you!
The oranges had a fantastic time visiting Longton Library, the children enjoyed three funny stories and loved joining in with the singing. They especially enjoyed the nursery rhymes and using the star puppets. Mrs Gater was really proud of all the children on there Visit.
Iggety ziggety zaggerty zoom!! Those were the noises we heard coming from Reception who carried out their own potion experiment after reading the Julia Donaldson story ‘Room on a Broom’. After making our predictions we added water, food colouring, washing up liquid, bicarbonate of soda and finally vinegar and our potion exploded! There was lots of scientific language being used as Evie noticed the bicarbonate soda dissolved in the water before starting to bubble as we added the washing up liquid.
Well done and congratulations to Ky who won GOLD at yesterday’s George Finney team floor and vault competition! We are very proud of you Ky!
In Reception we have been investigating objects that float and sink. We made our predictions and then tested our ideas. Hunter explained a coin is made out of metal which is heavy so he correctly predicted the coin would sink. Roman also explained a sponge is very light and it soaks up the water which helps it to float.
We then made our own boats and explored whether they sank or stayed afloat.
Fantastic work everybody!
What an amazing afternoon Year One have had visiting Longton Fire Station! Our topic this term has been Superheroes and heroes in our community. Well, they don’t get any better than the firefighters at Longton! Please look at our blog to see what a wonderful afternoon we had.
What a lovely evening down in the woods. Mr Hassall has marked out the first part of the path and a group continued to chop the brambles down and add all the waste to the compost bin. Well done everyone.
