The children were amazed to find 2 people living inside a large parcel that had been delivered to our school on Friday. The children were captivated by the story told by Kit and Tobin.
Dolphins class have also been exploring the properties of different materials this week. The children had a range of materials which they had to test for flexibility, transparency and absorbency. They discovered that glass was a great material for seeing though and keeping things dry but it wasn't flexible.
In maths, Starfish class enjoyed learning the value of numbers using a range of resources.
We thoroughly enjoyed watching Theatre Alibi when they came to perform their play called 'The Parcel'. After the performance they allowed us to look more closely at the parcel and ask questions.
We have also been to Pip and Jim's Church this week to sing at the tree festival. They very very kind and gave us a biscuit and hot chocolate after we had sung.
In our recent P.E. sessions Seahorses have been practising their ball skills. They have been throwing and catching bean bags and large balls and then rolling to each other and extending the distance covered.
The children in Dolphins had a fantastic day learning about a real life superhero, Florence Nightingale. The children made nurse and soldier hats and lanterns. They learnt all about Florence's life and the work she did during the Crimean War. They also learnt about germs and how we can minimise the spread of germs just by washing our hands with soap. The children then went into a hospital themed role play room. They had to clean and tidy the hospital to Florence's standards and dress the soldiers wounds with clean bandadges.
This week Starfish enjoyed learning about Florence Nightingale. They made hats and lanterns and role-played a hospital scene in a room set up like a 19th century hospital. They also learnt about her life using a timeline and enjoyed writing interesting facts about her.
We have had a great day learning all about Florence Nightingale.
Today the children heard about a real life superhero, Florence Nightingale. They learned about her life as a nurse and how the changes she made in the hospital helped the patients to recover. The children were very impressed to learn that Florence was awarded a medal by the Queen. The children made themselves a nurse or soldier hat and a lantern then they immersed themselves into life in a hospital ward in the Crimean War. The children bandaged the soldiers wounds and swept the wards by candlelight while looking out for the rats!
We had a wonderful day learning about 'The Lady with the Lamp'. This involved dressing up as nurses and soldiers, before travelling back in time to experience an old hospital ward before Florence Nightingale arrived. We completed lots of role play activities and learnt about timelines and events that occured in the past.
In Seahorses class the children enjoyed programming the Beebot to move around the room.
