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.
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.
Children are very excited for our trip to New Brighton next week but do you know where it is? We used the maps app on the iPads to locate New Brighton and learned that it is situated near Liverpool. If we travel on the M6 it will takes us just under an hour and a half to get there. We also noticed that to get to New Brighton we would have to travel in a northeasterly direction.
Today as part of our ‘Holidays’ topic, we have been learning about camping and the places in the U.K. we might go. The children have loved our camping role play area and what better way to bring it to life than actually toasting marshmallows on a real camp fire! We sang songs and our marshmallows tasted delicious! Well done to all the children who were so sensible, we’ve all had such a lovely day!
