WOW, what amazing projects we have had arriving in school this week. The children have absolutely loved telling their friends about the animals in their projects and how they have made them. Miss Brookhouse and I would like to thank our parents for their support and creating such wonderful work with the children over the half term break. It has really helped the children to develop their speaking skills. We are going to display the fabulous projects in our classroom to inspire some of our writing next week!
Today was a very exciting day in Nursery – we became scientists, making predictions and carrying out some fun experiments.
In our first experiment we helped to make a boat for Supertato to stop his cape getting wet when he crossed the river! We explored different materials and decided that plastic was a good material for the job! We talked about what would happen if the plastic got a hole in it and some of the children explained that the water would “come inside the boat and it would sink”. Miss Kavanagh and Miss Brookhouse were very impressed with our use of scientific language.
We also looked at how our senses work together to help us to taste different flavours! We tried to guess the flavour of the skittles when holding our noses but it was very tricky!!
Finally we explored how colours run and mix together to make new colours! We liked predicting what would happen to the skittles when water was added but we were amazed by what happened.
Today was a very special day in school. children in Nursery and Reception had a feast of Chinese delights during our Chinese banquet. We listened to oriental music and tasted some delicious Chinese foods. We even tried to use chopsticks to eat it. Staff were very proud of all the children for tasting new things. Well done Foundation Stage.
