We had fun today making a rainbow! If you happen to go past, see if you can spot it.
This morning I have noticed something on the bread which you all touched on the way into school. What do you notice? You will need to look very closely!
Year 6 competed against each other in a game of rounders.
The Larch class reporters have been busy at work finalising their alien spaceship newspaper reports. Thankfully no further sightings of the large, mechanical spaceship have been reported above Tanners Wood!
Ash class has been exploring germs this morning. Ms Schofield started by touching everyone with glitter so they could see how germs spread. The children then took part in three activities:
1. Children chose either milk and glitter or water and black pepper. They put a finger into the liquid and talked about the ‘germs’. They then chose a squirt of antibacterial or non-antibacterial soap, put their finger back into the bowl and watched the ‘germs’ disperse. Why not try this at home.
2. Children looked at pictures of hands. They talked about which ones they thought were clean or not clean. We talked about not being able to see germs so even the clean hands might have germs on them.
3. When the children came into school this morning they were all asked to touch a piece of bread. In groups they repeated this and predicted what might happen to the bread. We will keep you updated! At home look at the photo and make your own predictions.
Apple Nursery had great fun baking and decorating their own Gingerbread Man this week. This time we made sure they couldn’t escape!
Teachers enjoy learning new things too! Today staff were learning more about robotics and coding using microbits.
We had great fun creating games on micro bits in our workshop this afternoon! Ask your child what they enjoyed about it!
Apple Nursery have been learning about ‘The Gingerbread Man’ this week. Yesterday he escaped from the classroom and we looked all over the school to try to find him! The CCTV video showed him running outside Nursery. We tried finding some clues about where he had gone. We thought he might have broken the goalposts and we found crumbs in the infant gazebo where he must have eaten his breakfast!
Then we made some ‘LOST’ posters to let other people know to look for him too.
This morning on her way to work Miss Bennett was horrified to see an alien spaceship zoom over Tanners Wood. Year three went to investigate and were amazed when they discovered a strange, green egg in the KS1 playground. Where did the egg come from? What is the strange noise that keeps coming from the sky? Where is the UFO now? Year 3 will continue to report on the incident and hopefully more information will be revealed soon…
