Spring Term 2018
The children have worked really hard this term and have had lots of fun exploring
their environment, new concepts and their imaginations!
Today the children worked together to bake the ultimate ‘Fairy Cake.’
They learnt how to weigh, make comparisons, mix ingredients, sieve flour, fill fairy cake cases and decorate their cakes...oh and they learnt to use their senses to help them judge their cakes!
This morning the children were eager to explore their environment to find evidence of spring!
They were especially excited to discover bulbs peeping out of the ground.
They were also intrigued to find mini beasts under leaves and twigs. There was a lot of enthusiasm to explore their discoveries further.
Indian Dance Experience
During the day we were very privileged to experience authentic Indian dancing.
The children thought it was wonderful as they experimented with the different actions and moves.
Chinese New Year Celebrations
The Year Of The Dog
The children have been extremely busy having fun during the Chinese New Year celebrations.
To celebrate the children created Chinese Lanterns, Chinese food plates, turned our home corner into a Chinese restaurant, watched clips of firework displays and created a Chinese dragon dance to name but a few activities!
The children also wanted to carryout a Chinese food tasting investigation. They used their senses to make judgements about each dish. The children especially liked the noodles!
There was a lot of interesting expressions being displayed!
Snow Day Fun!
We all awoke to find a blanket of soft fluffy snow and of course at break time there was only one thing to do…have FUN!
Some children were very inventive in their snow play! The Hummingbirds thought it was great fun to make snowmen, tracks, snow faces on trees…some even found different ways of travelling along the snow.
The children's imaginations took them on many adventures.
In the afternoon the children showed off their Yoga techniques to the school and parents which they had learnt in Janey's Jivers.
After the alien crash landing investigations there was only one thing to do…imagine what the aliens looked like!
The children had fun creating their own aliens and even named them.
Many imagined that the aliens had come from the moon!
