‘Animals in Tuition’ May 2016

Reception children were very brave looking at the animals that were brought into school!!



Winter Wonderland

In Spring One it got very cold in class 2!  We found some animals that had been frozen in some ice and had to work to try and rescue them.  We tried using different tools to crack and melt the ice – we were super explorers and managed to set the animals free!  We also played with some soft snow where we were able to build homes and igloos for the animals in the North Pole.  We also had a go at painting with frozen paint, it was freezing but our pictures looked lovely! A little polar bear was lost in our classroom so we planned and went on a polar bear hunt, based on the story ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ and found the polar bear’s mummy!  We all had a picnic with the polar bears to celebrate.

Whirlow Hall Farm

On the 3rd March 2016 we went on a trip to Whirlow Hall Farm.  It was fantastic!!! We met the little red hen and then made our own bread using wheat we had planted and grown.  We also got a tour around the farm so we could meet all of the animals.  We met some pigs, cows, sheep, lambs, horses, hens and lots more!  We really like our trip to the farm and meeting all of the different animals.  Thank you to all the parent helpers who came along with us!

Living Eggs – Feb 2016

We were so excited when we got some living eggs delivered to our classroom.  We made sure that they were warm and after a couple of days the eggs had hatched!  There were 3 girl chicks and 2 boy chicks.  As a class we made sure they were warm, had food and water to make sure they were kept safe and healthy.  They were really cute and soft to hold but when they were getting a little bit bigger they were trying to jump and fly their wings so we had to make sure we were very careful.

Forest School Nov 2015

Class 2 have LOVED taking part in Forest schools!!! We have been doing really exciting things such as making medals, flags and potions as well as exploring the woodlands.  It was really slippery but we tried our best to walk around the Glen without falling over too much – even though we loved getting dirty in the mud.  We hope you enjoy looking at our photos!  We would like to thank Mr Sly for taking us to Forest schools and all of the parent helpers for helping out and making sure we had the best time ever! A huge thank you from Miss Brown and all of class 2!!

Senses Oct 2015

We have been exploring our five senses.  Here are some photos of exploring different textures using ice-cream dough where we also used our sense of smell to smell the coconuts in the mixture which smelt delicious!  We also tried some unfamiliar foods such as pickled onions and lemons which tasted really strange!  To use our sense of listening we played a whisper game together where we had to listen carefully and pass on a message to our friends.
