Fire Safety in Reception!

Reception have been finding out all about FIRE SAFETY today!

This morning we went down to the Secret Garden where Mrs Crawford made a big bonfire using her flint and steel. We talked about how fires start and we shared lots of ideas about why we need to be very careful so that we stay safe around fires. We learned a new song ‘Matches, lighters, DO NOT TOUCH! They will hurt you very much!’
We even made some fire safety posters to put out around the fire pit.
Riley “The fire only goes out when there’s no oxygen left”
Emily “It sounds like popping candy!”
Jacob “The fire sounds like a rattle snake!”

Year 2 Bird Feeders

On Friday, Miss Fawcett’s class went out into a very snowy Secret Garden. We had been thinking about how to encourage different kinds of birds to visit it. We split into two groups for our activities. Group 1 made bird feeders by buttering a slice of bread and covering it in bird seed. When we had finished, we went outside to hang them around the garden. Group 2 went outside into the greenhouse and planted some wild bird seed. We covered the trays with compost, sprinkled seeds on top and then watered them. After all our hard work, we went out to play in the snow, we even made tiny snowmen!

All in a Twist…

In Year Two we had lots of fun revising our Phase 5 phonemes.

We started by compiling a list of words which include the ‘oe’ and ‘ue’ phonemes and then we decided to play a game of twister.  First we had to spin the spinner and call out the instruction from the spinner board.  Then we had to try and segment the word displayed on the mat.  If we segmented the words correctly then we could complete the action called out.  We were fantastic at our segmenting and blending and tried so hard to stay balanced, even though it was very tricky!

Warburtons Sandwich Workshop

Today Gail from Warburtons visited our school and delivered a sandwich workshop to some of our Year 1 and Year 2 children. She gave us lots of information about healthy eating and talked to us about food hygiene.  Next we had to select our favourite ingredients and made our own sandwiches. They were delicious! At the end of the workshop we all had clean plates, full tummies and Gail gave us all a tasty loaf of bread to take home.

Nursery A’s Self Service Snack Area

In nursery we have set up a self service snack area. Whenever we are feeling hungry we are allowed to make ourselves a slice of toast. We know the importance of washing our hands before eating, we are really sensible when using the toaster. We know that the toaster uses electricity and gets very hot! We are becoming more independent and can butter our own toast. Yum!
