Did your child come home today and say they spent the afternoon playing? I hope so!
This afternoon we looked and played with our new Kapla blocks that are currently on loan until the holidays. The children had a great afternoon. The team work, cooperation and communication between them all was simply amazing!
A big thank you to Skye for creating a lovely new game for us to play. It is so clearly laid out, and even has instructions on the back! This will really help us with our fast recall of number facts. Great job! 🙂
A quick reminder that Scott will be coming to school tomorrow morning. Please could the children bring in any library books that need returning. Many thanks
After we had so much fun exploring and melting our ‘ice prisons’ yesterday, Class 1 have decided to make their own. We have begun the first few steps:
- Step 1: Fill a cup with water about a third or half of the way.
- Step 2: Place in the freezer.
- Step 3: Place your creature into the cup.
- Step 4: Add enough water to ‘trap’ your creature.
- Step 5: Freeze again.
Class 1 soon realised that this task was more complicated than it looked, especially when the first block of ice started to melt and float upwards! Nevertheless, we are persevering with this challenge and are excited to see what the end results will be.
This afternoon, we also had a go at building with ice cubes and have chosen items to make our own autumnal ‘ice garden’. A very busy Wednesday indeed!
Well done girls, you’ve come back from your holidays ready and excited to learn. Fantastic phonics work, and I love that you’re now making your own obstacle courses and using some positional language too!
Class 1 began their new topic ‘Ice Ice Baby’ by investigating some rather intriguing parcels… why were they so hard and cold? Were there items trapped inside? And how were we going to get them out?
Please see poster below – if you wish to take part this year, please email Mrs Beattie for the guidelines and address to send your entries. Good Luck!
