Today in Reception we have been learning about Remembrance Day. We have learnt the meaning behind the poppy and spoke about why we remember. We have made our own war medals, poppies and finger painted a poppy field.
Year One had a visit from firefighter Gary. He shared the firework safety code and all the important rules that need to be followed as bonfire night approaches. We looked at the special clothes he has to protect him. Thank you Gary.
This week children heard the story ‘The Dot’ by Peter Reynolds. In this story a pupil is challeneged to make her mark and see where it takes her. She ends up turning dots into wonderful artwork. The story encourages children to think about what they are good at and persevere at what they are not so good at.
I challenged children to turn a dot into some wonderful artwork of their own.
We have had a lovely morning with our superstar Nursery children. Following our busy morning the children walked beautifully to the hall to eat their lunch. They had chicken and sweet corn pie, mash potato and green beans followed by cake and custard. They tried hard to use a knife and fork, well done everyone we are very proud of you.
This morning, Year 2/1 learnt all about the importance of eating a rainbow of colour! We investigated the different benefits of eating different coloured foods. We learnt that red foods help to protect our heart and memory and green foods help to strengthen our hair, finger nails and bones. Using our new knowledge, we had great fun making our own colourful fruit faces and then eating them. Yum!
