Team games with Bryony

Every Wednesday we have a visit from Bryony from (NCLI) "No Child Left Inside" She teaches us many skills that we need....things like using our body to jump correctly, throwing or kicking balls...basically any physical activity. Today we were learning to work together as a team.


A Very Cute Visitor

Stella and her mum brought in their little baby goat to show us today.

Learning to Dance with Dean...So much Fun!!

As promised here are a few videos of our dance lessons from Monday's session. Room 3 and 4 join in with some children from Room 2.
Dean comes in every Monday afternoon and teaches us some new moves.
The children look forward to these lessons and I think they would be very happy if we could do dance everyday. It is soooo much fun!!
We are working towards a Dance Presentation which will be held at school on the 19th September, 2:10 - 2:50pm. Make sure you come along and watch how these lessons progress.
I think there are some real promising dancers here.
Take a look.....

Discovery Time Week 3

This week we were again concentrating on "solving problems by ourselves". The activities we had were: Woodwork, Box puppet shows, Bird feeders, Gloop and Lego. Yet again we had a great amount of fun while learning and thinking about working things out on our own.


Have you heard of Onomatopoeia?

The children in Room 3 learnt a very big word this week..."Onomatopoeia"
This is the name given to a word that is actually a 'noise' or it can be an 'action' too.
We have had a lot of fun this week with these words.

Just like magic

So once we got back to school the next morning the colours had mixed together into the empty glasses. We discovered that blue and yellow make green, red and yellow make orange, and that blue and red make purple. These are the secondary colours.

Dancing fun!!

We have Dean back this term to teach us some classy dance moves...
We join in with children from Room 4 and some from Room 2. It is so much fun and by the end of the term we will be moving and grooving in style.
Here are just a few photos of todays session.

Primary Colours

Last week we learnt about Primary Colours. This week we are going to find out about Secondary colours.
We started an experiment today and watched some coloured water travel up through a handy towel. By the time we come back to school tomorrow we will see something amazing has happened.
What do you think it will be??

Dancing Raisins

Do you know what happens when you add raisins to a jar of lemonade....?
The raisins start dancing!
As the bubbles attach themselves to a raisin it makes it rise to the surface and then the bubbles pop and the raisin falls to the bottom again.
