Today in Nursery the children dropped humpty dumpty and tried protect him from cracking!
Which material stopped the eggs from cracking? Why?
This afternoon Year 4 shared their home learning with each other. There was a variety of learning on display including Pandora’s boxes, ancient plates and masks, posters, fact files, models, laurel headwear and much more.
Using Piglet, the children were social and personal learners sharing their thoughts to help develop each others learning.
Today many wonderful creations came into school for our egg competition. There were all different shapes and sizes and many very creative ideas. We look forward to announcing the winners in assembly on Friday. Many thanks to our PTA for donating prizes.
What does it mean to be a child in 2017? Last Friday in celebration assembly we were inspired by the children sharing their voice about the humanitarian crisis in East Africa. This week in assemblies we will be exploring what it means to be a child and our rights around this.
How can we use our voice?
How can we share our voice?
This week Nursery have continued to develop their core muscles (stomach and lower back) ready for writing. We have challenged our self and tackled all new learning with a can do attitude. Can we do it – YES we can!
Nursery are on a mission to be ready to write! Today we continued to strengthen our shoulders and core, essential skills for writers. In teams we relayed tyres back and forth using both our hands.
Nursery, how is this helping us as writers?
In Nursery we continue to develop our gross motor skills and core strength ready for us to be story writers when we move to Reception.
Today we focussed on core strength by challenging the children to write with a pen between their toes! It got even more challenging when they had a pen in each foot.
Nursery what was the best bit about writing with your feet?
This academic year our LSAs are leading a project of change. Each project is designed to develop pupil independence in different ways. Over the year the LSAs have created posters as part of their project plan and shared these with a widening audience. We have been asked to share them at a forthcoming Learning Network Event hosted by The Centre of Excellence for Social Learning.
Why is pupil independence so important to learning and how does this develop life long learners?
Over the last few weeks Nursery have become increasingly interested in the evidence that spring is under way. We have been looking closely at blossoming trees and the many colourful flowers around school.
Using our science skills we have made careful observational drawings of what we have seen.
