On Shrove Tuesday the children talked about why we eat pancakes, Ash Wednesday and our preparations for Lent. All the children tasted the pancakes and tried a variety of toppings.
As part of our World Book Day celebrations the children wore t-shirts to represent number, shape and pattern.
We shared a variety of number stories and other throughout the day.
As part of our topic on Winter we made a mountain out of ice. We observed how the ice changed as it melted in the classroom. The children enjoyed the sensory experience of playing in the ice, using polar animals to role play with.
Last week as part of our work on garden birds the children made their own birds nests. They collected a variety of materials that they thought would make a good home for a bird. Below is a selection of the nests that they made.
This week we have been out and about around school looking at and feeding the different birds in our local environment.
We have made tally charts of the numbers of birds we have spotted!
Before the October half term holiday we enjoyed a lovely afternoon at Sankey Valley. We could see how the leaves had changed colour and were falling from the trees. The children collected a variety of leaves and found acorn shells, acorns and conkers.
The children have been experimenting using colour.
They made rainbows on a plate by using sweets and water. They watched how the colours changed in the water and what happened when all the colours mixed together.
