On Wednesday we visited the Museum of Science and Industry, we listened to a talk on Victorian cotton mills and saw the machine in actions, and this helped us understand how hard and dangerous the children’s work was in Victorian times. We enjoyed ourselves in the hands on gallery; see if you can find in our picture the people that reversed the Mini up the wall.

Funky Fingers and Dough Gym in Nursery - April 2015, by Miss Crabtree

Date: 22nd Apr 2015 @ 3:22pm

Taking part in Funky Fingers and Dough Gym everyday has made a big impact on the childrens fine motor skills and they are making good progress.  This in turn has also improved the children’s writing and letter formation.  These activities take place for 3 minutes every day to music.  The children enjoy this time and often sing along with the song too!

Have a look at some of the things we have been doing.  You may want to try them at home too.

Year 6 ERUPT! - March 2015, by Mr Booth

Date: 2nd Apr 2015 @ 12:27pm

In Year 6 we have been learning all about volcanoes; how they are formed, the different types of volcano, how they erupt and the devastating consequences that they create when they do.

As part of this project, the Year 6 pupils decided that they would like to create their very own active volcanoes! The children worked in groups to design, create and put their teamwork and artistic skills together to produce a realistic 3D volcano. Then we planned science experiments using mentos, lemonade, bicarbonate of soda, vinegar and washing up liquid to create a dramatic eruption!

Look at our pictures  to see the final product - we were all very impressed and enjoyed making the volcanoes!

The Solar Eclipse- Nursery - March 2015, by Miss Crabtree

Date: 25th Mar 2015 @ 2:48pm

The children were very interested in the eclipse. We used Google to research information about it and learnt that a solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun.

We went outside to see it but we were not allowed to look at the sun in case it damaged our eyes but when the clouds passed over it we were allowed to look. It went very dark outside!

World Book Day in Nursery - March 2015, by Miss Crabtree

Date: 5th Mar 2015 @ 3:53pm

The children had a wonderful day celebrating World Book Day.  There were some fantastic costumes and characters from books such as Sleeping Beauty, The Very hungry Caterpillar, The Tiger That Came To Tea, Harry and His Bucketful of Dinosuars and many more.

Well done to Asha who won the best costume from Nursery.  She dressed up as a caterpillar from The Very Hungry Caterpillar and made her costume at home with her mum.  Asha won a £5.00 book token.  We think she looked fantastic.

Please remember to share books and stories at home as not only is it great fun but will help your child to learn new language, new experiences and develops their imagination ready for writing.

Year 6 'Haka' dance lesson - Feb 2015, by Mrs Molloy

Date: 27th Feb 2015 @ 3:50pm

Our first dance lesson this half term involved looking at 'The Haka'.

The Haka is a war dance invented by the Maori tribe in New Zealand.

It was performed to scare their enemies, to help get them ‘psyched up’ for battle and make them feel like a team.

Now the New Zealand rugby team, the ‘All Blacks’ perform it before each of their games to try and put off their opponents!

Look at our scary faces...!

Nursery Dinosaur Topic - Feb 2015, by Miss Crabtree

The Nursery children had a fantastic time learning all about dinosaurs and researching information about them using Google. We made our own dinosaurs using play dough and painted pictures of them.
