         SPORT'S DAY

We had great fun at our sport's day! Running, jumping, balancing, crawling!

Mud Week - What a muddy week we've had! We have been exploring the properties of 'mud'! We had fun digging up some mud from our digging pit then adding water to it! We watched how the consistency changed the more water we added to it!

We had fun creating our own mud cake recipes with ingredients from the forest. Lots of number work and counting was involved! Then we gathered the ingredients to make our cakes. Some of us worked as a team to make them!

Then we made our own mud paint and painted mud pictures! We explored adding powder paint to the mud to investigate what happened!





This week we collected some snails from our forest school and we made a special home for them in a tank.  We have taken really good care of them; collecting leaves and grass, stones and vegetables to make them feel at home.  We looked at information books and found out that snails like to be damp so we sprayed them with water every day.  We made some delicious 'snail soup' for them to eat and we looked at the long 'snail trails' they leave behind!

This week we had a visitor into school who told us all about the Muslim faith.  We looked at the special things she brought in to show us and we looked at the special Muslim prayer book, the Qur'an.  We learned that Muslim men go to a Mosque to pray; it is the same as Christians going to church to pray.  Some children from Reception got dressed up in  traditional Muslim clothes and looked at the prayer mats.  It was fantastic to find out about another religion!

This week we have been having lots of fun outdoors.  We learned about throwing our beanbag gently and accurately to get it into the target.  We made tally marks to keep count how many points we scored and then we counted the total to find out who had scored the most points!

Ball Skills

Write Dance


We started our week by thinking about volcanoes before creating a volcano dance to music.  We built up our movement throughout the week and by Friday we were ready to transfer our movements to paper.  We used circles and different types of lines to create our volcano masterpiece.
