We Love Science!

We have been taking part in some science experiments about air over the last few weeks. We found out that air is all around us and it can move things, including balloons and bubbles.

Here are some photographs of what we did.

Walking Through the Jungle

We have been listening to the story 'Walking Through the Jungle' by Julie Lacome and really liked trying to predict which animal might come next in the story.

We chose an animal from the book to make. Then we used clear plastic boxes which open to make the mouth and used paint and pieces of thin card to cover them. We then added the features from each animals head to create our own snake, tiger or monkey.

Looking at Worms!

This term we are looking closely at worms as we get ready to set up our worm farms. Sharon from Wastebusters came in to work with us, to help us learn all about Earthworms and Tiger Worms. In the photos we are looking at different types and sizes of worms and looking for clues to show whether they are baby or adult worms. We even looked so carefully we found some tiny worm eggs.

World of Maths

We have had a fun time at World of Maths today! All the New Entrants, Y1's and Y2's completed the activities at the same time with some great senior helpers and parents. The activities meant the children had to use their maths knowledge as well as our A+ characteristics.

Taking part in PMP

All the New Entrant and Year 1 students have been taking part in a programme called PMP (Perceptual Motor Programme) with Mrs Lee, Whaea Bobbie and Viv on Tuesday afternoons. This is a programme which aims to develop children's perceptions and understandings of himself or herself in relation to their world through movement experiences. It aims to develop perceptions of height and space, patterns and their confidence to manipulate themselves.

Here are photographs of some of the activities the children have taken part in.
