As part of our History topic, we had two special visitors in Year 1 to answer our questions about the past. The children were amazed to find that there were no iPads or computers in schools and that there was no planning time!
In Year 1 we are learning about how humans change as they grow.
We had a fantastic afternoon looking at how we have changed!
Year 4 had a great time tasting their own delicious cookery.
They researched Italian food, created their own tomato based sauce with John in the hall and finally feasted on the mouth watering dishes.
Check out the Nursery Morning children performing “Music, music, music” with our tapping sticks.
To follow on from our school harvest festival, the children in Year 2 explored the Jewish Sukkot festival and we made some Challah bread that is eaten during Sukkot.
It was delicious.
What brilliant bakers we are!
Year Three had a fantastic visit to The Oriental Museum today. We found out about Egyptian clothes, tools, Gods and mummies. We even got to see a real mummy! It smelled disgusting!!
A special thank you to Emily’s Mum and Lucas’ Mum for helping us have a brilliant day!
Halloween has arrived to the Early Years!
A big thank you to everyone for the donated pumpkins which are being put to use already. We are focusing on tool use and co-ordination by hammering nails into their skin. They will be used for other activities in the upcoming weeks.
As well as exploring pumpkins, in challenge we have been making glitter spider webs, spooky shape pictures, building castles using blocks and junk and participating in role play activities as Halloween characters.
The Nursery have also made some spooky soup with “Winnie the Witch” by listening to sounds (b-a-t) and even turned each other, and me, into a Mummy.
As part of our Harvest Festival, each child created a special leaf to share something that they are thankful for. Mr O’Brien has created a fantastic display at Whitburn Parish Church to showcase all of the children’s work and some were read out as part of a special prayer during Sunday’s church service.
The congregation were very complimentary of the children’s work.
