Year One had an amazing Wednesday at Wildwood. We created lots of art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy, sang Happy Birthday to Marium around the camp fire and toasted marshmallows! The children had an fantastic day which created many special memories for them.
The children in Reception have loved our alien topic this week. We have read lots of alien stories such as Q Pootle 5 and Aliens love Underpants and we even designed our own aliens on the iPads, before writing about them. Callum’s and Briley’s aliens liked to eat people so watch out!
Art Club this afternoon was very exciting! We made Christmas trees from wood, card and sequins to decorate. The results were ‘tree-mendous’! Well done Art Club!

Last week in the nursery we had a fabulous time learning all about space and rockets. We created some fabulous box rockets and experimented with bottles to see what happened to our rockets when we pushed air through the top. The children designed some lovely looking aliens using gummed paper. They used shapes to print rockets, naming the shapes as they did so, well done everyone! We used a spinner to see how many marshmallows to feed the aliens. We then got to spin again to eat some ourselves, this was very popular. Well done on all of you hard work children.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in to school to watch our Nativity
The children in Reception have loved our space topic this week. We have learnt lots about the planets in our solar system and watched a video of an astronaut in space brushing his teeth to demonstrate the lack of gravity in space. We have also loved watching the Solar System song which is attached below. Can you remember any facts about the planets?
Year One have been learning all about the United Kingdom, the countries and their capital cities. They have also been learning all about their characteristics. Have a look at our blog to find out more!
This week in Reception, we have been reading the story ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell. We have been very busy creating some fantastic pieces of work including split pin owls, fluffy owls on a branch and owls with 3D eyes! We’ve also used owls on a branch to find one less and written speech bubbles to show what the owl babies said in the story. What a lovely week!
The children in Reception have loved telling each other about the fireworks they saw over the weekend. We have been busy making sparklers, drawing and painting fireworks, making bonfires, rockets and Catherine wheels! We are so glad everybody remembered how to keep safe on bonfire night too. Well done everybody!
We have had an extremely busy time in the Nursery learning about firework safety. The children have created some very explosive pictures using a variety of different media. We hope you all have a lovely, very safe weekend.
