Book share with Reception.
Today Opal and Topaz had a book share with some of the parents.
They read and shared books together and then the children were given books to keep from the Book Trust.
Today Opal visited the dell for their Forest school learning.
We collected natural materials that we found in amongst the trees, sticks, leaves and acorn shells.
The children had some clay which they formed into faces. Once they had finished adding the features they were attached to the trunk of a tree.
I think the results are amazing. Well done Opal Class.
No the children weren’t in trouble! Our friendly Community Police Officer very kindly brought his police truck for the children to see as part of our transport topic.
They were all very interested in his job and what he used his truck for. He put on the siren and lights for us to see and talked about the equipment he had on his high visibility jacket.
A busy week in Nursery, the children enjoyed their trip to the Fire Station last Friday and have painted an engine for our wall display.
They have since added lights and hoses using cardboard tubes and paper strips.
On Thursday we had a visit from a Black Cab. The children were able to ride up and down the car park and ask the driver about his job. Opal and Topaz also had rides in the cab.
This half term our topic is transport. We started our term off with a visit to the Fire Station to meet the Fire Fighters.
The children were able to see the engine and all of its equipment which was explained to them by the village female Fire Fighters.
They tried on the Fire Fighters helmet and listened to advice on fire safety.
We are all looking forward to learning about other vehicles in the next few weeks.
All early years have been working hard in preparation for the Early Year Christmas Performance.
The finished performance was charming. Many thanks to all those involved in making this happen.
There were so many wonderful photos its was hard to choose, but hopefully these will capture the event.
Early Years were lucky to have Mrs Mahammad to teach them about the Hindu celebration of Diwali.
Many of the staff were dressed in a Sari. Mrs Mahammad explained how they were fitted and about the decoration. She bless the class with a candle and told the traditional tale of Rama and Sita.
Many thanks to Mrs Mahammad.
