Learning about the weather.
The class have been working together to make some weather instruments to measure wind direction and rainfall.
The children worked in small groups with some instructions to make their instruments.
They used paper cups, straws and plastic bottles to complete them.
When they had finished they took them up to the raised beds to see how they worked.

Best of British
This term our topic has been based around all things British and the children have been learning about the royal family and the different flags that make up the Union Jack Flag.
We have been looking at division and have started to look at weights and capacity.
Songs and Art work
Our annual Harvest assembly was well attended today. Nursery Ruby Class were able to show some of the activities we based around the story “The Little Red Hen”. We had wheat painting, growing cress and tasting different breads.
Opal and Topaz displayed some hedgehogs they had made from natural materials. Years 1 and 2 were looking at health foods and the foods that we bring to the harvest table. I particularly liked the Baked Beans!
They all sang some harvest songs about farmers work and different beans, backed with some well rehearsed actions. Of course the mandatory Dingle Dangle Scarecrow from Nursery.
