This afternoon we had a party to celebrate Eid. The children enjoyed wearing their party clothes, eating party food and playing games in the hall. It was lots of fun! We have also enjoyed looking at all the photos of the children celebrating Eid with their families at home during the holidays. Thank you to all the parents who shared their Eid photos on Tapestry.
This week our Mystery Reader was Zakwan's mum. The children enjoyed listening to her read the story 'Whatever Next' and answered simple questions about it.
Today we went on a train ride as part of our topic 'Journeys'. The children walked sensibly from school to Hyde station, following instructions well. We then got the train from Hyde to Rose Hill and enjoyed a picnic on the Middlewood Way. After the picnic the children all enjoyed playing games together in the fields.
Ice Cream 🍦
Today was a super sunny day so the children enjoyed eating ice cream outside as treat for all the hard work they have been doing. All children were able to talk about the seasons in relation to the weather and about changes when they noticed that their ice creams were melting in the heat. They suggested sitting in the shade where it is cooler to stop their ice cream melting as quickly.
The children wrote their own tickets for the train trip on Friday. They wrote where the train will leave from, where it is going to, the date and the time. We are all super excited.
Today the Mystery Reader was Maryam’s mum. She chose to read ‘Avocado Baby’. The children enjoyed listening to the story and found it very funny!
The children enjoyed pulling transport objects out of the mystery bag then used their phonics knowledge to write down the name of each on the chalk top table outside.
This week a group of children have been finding QR codes hidden around the outdoor area and have been using their iPad skills to scan them to display high frequency words they are learning. The children enjoyed this so much we are plannig to use QR codes as part of a writing focus for all children next half term.
The Mystery Reader this week was Leon’s mum. She chose to read ‘The Gingerbread Man’. The children enjoyed listening to the story then all got treated to gingerbread men. Yummy!
The Nursery children are really enjoying staying at school all day Thursday and Friday in preparation for full time in Reception. Take a look at the photo below of them enjoying their lunch at school. 😀
This morning we went on a journey to Hyde fire station. We learnt all about how to stay safe in the event of a fire, sat in the fire engine and sprayed water out of the hose. Our teachers even had a go at sliding down the fireman’s pole! Have a look at all our pictures and videos below.
Mystery Reader 📖
Today our Mystery Reader was Ameerah’s mum. She let the children choose which story they wanted to hear from a selection of books. They choose Little Red Riding Hood and really enjoyed listening to Ameerah's mum read it. They also pointed out that they often go to the woods like Little Red Riding Hood but haven't yet come across a wolf!
Little Red Riding Hood
This morning we were surprised to find a basket, red cape, wolf, granny cardigan and Red Riding Hood book altogether in our classroom! We decided that Red Riding Hood must have seen us whilst we were in the woods and followed us back to class. We read the story Little Red Riding Hood then wrote about the journey she went on.
Journey to the Woods
To start our ‘journeys’ topic we went on a walk to the woods. When we got to the woods we found sticks and tied rubber bands round them. As we walked around the woods we added leaves, grass and different flowers that we found during our journey to create a journey stick.
