    Will it sink or will it float?

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    Today we did a floating and sinking activity, the children chose their own objects to experiment with, predicting whether they would float or sink! The children had great fun trying this and were super happy when they predicted correctly.

    The Rainbow Fish

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    Today we read a letter from the rainbow fish asking for our help. To help we needed to give the rainbow fish its brightly coloured scales back that had turned white. The children used shiny colourful material to help and create their rainbow fish. We were super proud to help.

    We had a little visit from two tortoises this morning named, Bee and Clive. We had a go at holding them in our hands! We were super excited to see them and to feel their shells. Some of us were able to tell us a few facts about Tortoises.

    Winter walk

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    This morning we adventured out onto the school field, to explore and see what changes there were after 'Jack Frost' had been. We used magnifying glasses to look more closely at the frosty objects we could find. We spoke about the cold and the affect it has on our bodies, we made sure we dressed up warm with our hats, scarfs gloves and coats!

    We have carried on looking at Chinese New Year! Today we had a go at writing Chinese numbers in sand using chopsticks, we even had a go at writing our names. In the afternoon we made paper chain Dragons, cutting and gluing them together. We then made them dance and move in different ways.

    Chinese Lanterns

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    This week we will be looking at Chinese New Year, the year of the Ox. And how they celebrate their New Year. At circle time we spoke about their lanterns, we then had a go at making our own lanterns using red card and gold decorations. We used our own scissor skills to cut along the lines to form the shape, We then decorated them ready to hang up inside Little Jesters. Tomorrow we will have a go making our own dragons!

    Music

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    Today at carpet time we used musical instruments to tap out simple beats, we had a go at making our instruments make loud and quiet noises by moving them in different ways, exploring their sounds. We sang twinkle twinkle and other songs using the instruments. At the end we had a go at clapping our names by breaking them down into syllables.

    Medicine in the woods

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    This morning we headed down into the woods, we looked for different objects to use as ingredients. We used mud, leaves, sticks, seeds, water and different plants to make our medicine. We worked together and on our own to search the woods for objects. We used scissors to cut the leaves and twigs and spoons and pans to mix it together.

    Zog and the flying Doctors

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    This week we are reading Zog and learning all about doctors, and how they help us. We dressed up as doctors our self and used babies for our patients. We used bandages, plasters, stethoscopes and other tools to act out our own experiences at the doctors. Some of us created Humpty Dumpty's, we decorated and cut them in to pieces. Once broken we used plasters to stick him back together, making him "Feel better and happy!"
