Having a try at coding using Scratch.
Performing Rumble in the Jungle with a green screen
The children have been learning about the Arctic and Antarctic regions as part of their 'Life in the Freezer' topic. They have found out how igloos keep people warm and have made their own igloos from a range of materials. In science, they have carried out a 'blubber gloves' experiment to find out how blubber keeps animals warm and researched how penguin and polar bear bodies are adapted to help them to survive in a polar environment. In English, the children have been using the internet and non-fiction texts to research penguins in order to create their own information books at the end of topic.
Here are some examples of our current continuous provision on offer to the children. Continuous provision is play-based learning that the children can access in the absence of an adult. The children love the freedom of choosing their own activities which are carefully planned to move them on with their learning and next steps.
18.1.22 - The children went on a 'winter hunt' around the new school garden and in our outdoor area. They found many signs of winter including frosty cobwebs, ice in the water tray and little clouds when they blew out because it was so cold! The children loved drawing in the ice on the benches using their fingers and sticks.
Away in a Manger
20.9.21 - Today, we learned about viaducts and aquaducts as part of our 'All Aboard' topic. We looked at photographs of famous aquaducts and viaducts from around Britain and discussed how they had been built. The children worked well in teams using whichever materials they thought would be suitable to make their own viaducts and aquaducts. Mrs Sutton was very proud of how the children listened to each others ideas and were so resourceful in using the outdoor and indoor equipment to build their structures.
13.9.21 We started off our design and technology topic by reading Iggy peck Architect and making our own bridges from a variety of materials. The children enjoyed accessing this activity during choosing time and worked brilliantly together! They had some wonderfully creative ideas and joined materials in lots of different ways :)
6.9.21 - Our first day back at school.
The children had a wonderful first day back (or first day) at school! The older children did a fantastic job of looking after the new reception group and helped them to find their way around. There was a lot to explore both inside and out and the children enjoyed making new friends and playing together :).
