Reception were visited by a dentist today and were shown how to look after their teeth. They all were able to practise brushing model teeth and saw what happens if they do not brush their teeth properly. They were very knowledgable about which foods are good to eat and which are not. Also, the children learnt a way of protecting their teeth whilst eating chocolate and sweet food. Ask a child in Reception what this is so that you can enjoy sweets occasionally as a treat.
It has been a very exciting afternoon as Maple Cross Explorers has returned! Today group 2 used the natural environment to retell the story of Where the Wild Things Are. When they discovered a problem, they used their black hats and then, by using green hats, came up with ideas to solve the problem.
This term the children in EYFS are using their cooking sessions to prepare snacks for the other children. This week they have created frozen fruit kebabs. We began by making a list of all the fruit we would be using (this really tested our phonics!).
Working as a collaborative team they chopped, peeled and sliced various fruits. They then skewered the fruits before we placed in the freezer to allow them to chill.
Later in the morning the children shared the snacks with everyone else. They were a super chilly treat on a very hot and sunny day.
Year 5 have been exploring how they look. They particularly enjoyed muddling up each other’s faces and trying to work out which part belonged to which person. It was amazing how challenging it became to recognise the people we see every day.
A few weeks ago, Year 5 attended a tag rugby festival at St Clement Dane’s School. Every child in Year 5 demonstrated outstanding resilience pushing themselves in every game to achieve their very best. At the end of each game, they reflected carefully and tried to improve for their next performance. I was so proud of their attitude and performance!
After over 2 months in their wormeries, we gave our worms some well deserved freedom today! We put them into the raised flowerbed so that they can get on with creating quality soil, adding their nutrients, ready for our next science project in Summer Term.
Y2, how did it feel emptying your wormery? Do you think we did the right thing? Had the worms changed much?
