Year 6 – Zumba

Due to the rain this morning, we were unable to run outdoors so we took the opportunity to do a 15 min Zumba activity which was instructed by Miss Short. Both myself and Miss Short had a great time and felt ready for the learning ahead.

Year 6 – What are your thoughts on the Zumba this morning? Let us know your thoughts.

More super learning in Nursery

This week the children have been flying with their learning. We have had builders, pirates and artists!

Some of the children have been creating bridges and making repairs using tools. Others have been painting and some were inspired to build their own pirate ship. The boys selected boxes to use for the hull and seats. They added buttons, lights and a mast. We look forward to developing their learning over the rest of the week.

Smoothie bar

As part of their ‘Who are you?’ Topic, Year 1 explored the healthy eating elements of the science curriculum. Firstly, they had to work collaboratively to name and identify the mystery fruit objectes displayed on the table. Then they had to also plan and design their own smoothie recipe using their own healthy fruit choices. Once designed they then used their communication skills to decide on 4 healthy fruit recipes to create and taste from Miss Crowley’s smoothie bar. Year 1 loved guessing the colours the mixed fruits would create and also found the whizzing noise of the blender rather hilarious! Once made, they shared out their chosen recipes and used their senses to explore and describe the smoothie flavours. Finally, each child reviewed their smoothie by communicating their smoothie verdict and rating to their partner.

Who’s been eating my porridge?

Last week a mysterious suitcase appeared in the Year 1 classroom. Once we had used our green hats to generate ideas on what we should do with the suitcase, we decided that we should unpack and explore its contents. Year 1 were very excited as each clue was revealed and soon pieced the clues together to reveal the hidden story- Goldilocks and the three Bears! Throughout the week year one acted out the story, generated adjectives, planned the beginning of the story through a story map and also retold the beginning of the story in full sentences. Next week we will continue planning and writing the middle and ending to the story and expand our adjective washing line.
