What a fantastic day Year 2 had yesterday at Conkers. We started the morning off by riding on a train to the woodland. Hidden in the woods were nine fairy tale characters which we had to find by following a map. We have some fantastic map readers in Year 2 who accurately directed their groups around the woods to find the hidden characters. It wasn’t an easy challenge as we crossed wobbly bridges, walked narrow paths and even climbed up some tricky banks! The children were amazing and found most of the hidden characters. Following that, we retold the traditional tale of The Three Little Pigs whilst wearing the masks we made and we shared another version of the story with Lottie, our tour guide. She was very impressed! After our lunch, the children enjoyed some free time on the amazing playground followed by time in the Discovery Centre which taught the children lots of scientific facts about our world – very interesting! To finish our day, we enjoyed a movie in the 4D cinema which was great fun. Well done to all of the children for their super behaviour and listening skills during our trip and also a great big thank you to all of our helpers who gave up their spare time to enjoy the day with us.
On Wednesday and Thursday last week, Y5 went on a river study. We learnt lots of new vocabulary such as tributary, meander, confluence , erosion, source, deposition… I wonder how many definitions the children can remember.
During this half term the Nursery children have been learning about their local area and the wider world. Can any of your superstars remember where they live? We talked about where we could go for a day trip and then looked at different countries and sang the continent song. It’s very catchy!
We have tasted Indian food, different fruits and even made our own pizza! There has been so much more but hope you enjoy this quick look at some of our activities.
Year 2 have had a very busy few days researching features of holiday brochures. Once they became familiar with the key features and persuasive language, the children went on to write some super brochure-worthy entrees based on New Brighton! Well done children!
To continue our ‘Holidays’ topic, the children in Reception learnt about France yesterday. We made the Eiffel Tower, wrote a postcard from DisneyLand Paris and even tasted croissants and French bread with roule cheese!
As part of our Holidays topic, we have been learning about different countries where we might go on holiday. Today we are learning about Spain and Italy and we have made our own pizzas! Our spreading skills with a knife are fantastic and we can’t wait to eat them later!
What a fantastic day we had yesterday at New Brighton Beach! We went to have a look at the Black Pearl, received a safety talk and demonstration from the RNLI lifeguards, built some super sandcastles and splashed in the sea! We enjoyed eating our lunch with an amazing view – the lighthouse! We searched for Mr Grinling but he must’ve been resting from a busy night cleaning the lighthouse. However, as soon as we began to eat our juicy ice lollies, those pesky seagulls appeared! Fortunately, they didn’t come too close and our ice lollies were enjoyed in peace! We’d like to say a special thank you to the important helpers who joined us on our trip and helped to keep us safe. We really appreciate it. We hope the children told you all about our amazing day and that they slept well last night!
Year 2 have had a fantastic day at the seaside today. We got to paddle in the sea, make sandcastles and see a real lighthouse after reading stories about them. To our surprise, we even spotted pirates!
In the Nursery we have been learning all about life at the beach. The children have created brilliant beach pictures, super seagulls and perfect palm trees. When we talked about sun safety we had some fantastic writing as the children wrote a list of what’s needed to stay safe in the sun. They listened closely to a sea shell and talked about the noises they could hear and finally we tasted real coconut. Macie said “I don’t like coconut, not even in chocolate!” We hope you enjoy looking at the photographs and would appreciate any comments.
