Moore class go miniature!

After learning how to construct emergency shelters in Antarctica, we put our survival skills to the test in the forest.  Using the same principles, we created mini-shelters for mini-men!

Riley Class Science Investigation

This week in science Riley class have been investigating to find out if taller people have bigger feet. We have proven his to be incorrect as we have found many examples of children in our class who have bigger feet than someone who is taller than them. The children used their measuring skills to measure height and foot length in metres and centimetres to prove this. 

Exploring plant growth

This week, Reception have been looking at plant growth, inspired by Jack and the Beanstalk. 
Have a look at some of the things we've been doing.

Poppy and Ben have been using "Kiddle"
to research plants on the iPads
Riley has been measuring beanstalks with cubes
to find out which one was the tallest and shortest

Ashleigh decided to write a list about what
a plant needs to grow healthily

Fishy Fun in Year 1!

In Science, Year 1 are learning all about animals! Today we went to the Immersion Room to look really closely at fish and their features. When we came back to the classroom there were REAL FISH on our tables! We loved exploring them and looking closely at their scales, fins, gills and teeth!

What do plants really need to grow?

In Science this week we looked at what plants really need to grow and have created an investigation to see if this is true or not. We decided that plants need sunlight, soil, water and warmth to grow. We split ourselves into 4 groups and to test whether this is true or not each group has removed one of these variables. Let's see what happens over the coming weeks!

Goldilocks and the three bears

This week Nursery have been continuing their learning about Goldilocks and the three bears! We have been making delicious porridge and noticing how the texture of the mixture changes as we cooked it! 
We tried lots of different toppings on our porridge- banana, raisins, honey and cinnamon! Delicious!! 

At story time some the children helped Miss Woodhouse tell the story of Goldilocks and the three bears using props and dressing up clothes. Later the children began to tell the story using these props without adults in their choosing time repeating phrases from the story such as "Somebody's been eating my porridge." 

"Once upon a time there was a little girl called Goldilocks...."

"Suddenly the chair broke and Goldilocks fell off and ended up with her legs in the air.."
""Whose been sleeping in my bed" said Daddy bear...."
