Weekly News Update

For Science Week, the children in Nursery have been exploring how toys work and they have been innovative by creating some of their own. They have explored marble runs and experimented with changing the course and speed of the marbles, talking how it works and why. They have been creating their own marble runs as well. They have made large scale ones outside and used recycled materials to make a marble run as a group inside. They have shown creativity by thinking of their own ideas, resilience by changing their design when it didn’t work and teamwork by working together and sharing resources.

 

 

Our theme in Nursery is People Who Help Us. The children have been expanding their Wide Horizons by learning about lots of occupations and the different ways that people help us in the jobs that they do. They have been very enthusiastic in their imaginary play, dressing up and taking on the role of doctors, nurses, paramedics, builders and vets.

Year 3 have been looking at parts of a flower in our outdoor environment. This helped us have high achievement in the classroom when we were asked to label parts of the flower. We were also fascinated to see the flowers under the visualiser so we could see each part closely.
