Its Week 2 - Lets see what's been happening in Nursery..............

This week in nursery we have continued our learning all about Farm Animals! We have been looking at a variety of books to look at pictures of farm animals and even comparing different kinds of chickens after we made them! In the creative area we have been making animals and even a farm house and farm yard! In the writing area we have been looking at the story 'Oh Dear' and what Buster does at the farm. Some of us have been drawing our favorite farm animals and even writing our own books with the story! What a fantastic week about all different kinds of farm animals.

You could have a go at singing 'Old McDonald had a farm' at home!

Its Week 2 - Lets see what's been happening in Y4..............

This half term Y4 have started to learn about electricity. We started by identifying electrical appliances and then sorted them into those that are battery powered and those powered by the mains. We then made electrical circuits for the first time. It was so exciting when our bulb lit up. We learnt that all the components needed to be connected in a complete loop for electricity to flow round the circuit.

The company and the school have put a detailed risk assessment to ensure all safety measures are in place and in line with government guidelines.

Its Week 1 - Lets see what's been happening in Nursery..............

 

 

We have been learning all about farm animals this week for our new topic all about animals! We have been reading the book 'Oh Dear' and acting it out with our friends. In our creative activities we have been using a variety of media to make different animals - even using our whole hands in paint! It was so much fun and some of us thought the paint was ' cold' and 'wet'. We have been building some tall towers in the blocks and trying to make them steady buildings.

You can watch the story of 'Oh Dear' here and learn some makaton for animals just like in nursery! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDKd3nuAZxk

Singing songs is a great way to learn new words - you can sing some song all about animals here!
