Last night we played against Orchard away. We had a shaky start as our players noticed that they had a few academy players and started nervously. Unfortunately, we let in 3 goals in the first 5 mins. However, we regrouped, composed ourselves and held off anymore goals. We worked really hard to get back into the game and had 5 shots on target by Lilly but we were unable to convert them into goals. Well done girls for having a super attitude to sport. Every girl played a crucial role in the team. Look out Holy Rood who we play at home this Thursday!
Fir class have been talking about sandwiches! We tasted lots of different bread and talked about our favourite sandwich fillings. We designed a sandwich and today, we made our own. Everyone was very pleased with their creation. Unfortunately, nothing will be coming home as the hungry monsters have eaten them all!?
This week Apple Nursery have been enjoying the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We have been re-telling the story and writing shopping lists for Little Red Riding Hood to buy food to take to Grandma’s house. Our shop has been very popular this week with the children taking it in turns to shop and be the shopkeeper.
This week we have been looking at the story of the Gingerbread man. We talked about the part when he has to cross the river on the fox’s back and how the fox tricks him into getting nearer his mouth by telling him he might get wet. We were wondering what would have happened if he had got wet? So of course, we did an experiment.
We tested out different liquids like milk, water and golden syrup and dunked some biscuits into them to see what would happen. They all took different amounts of time to disintegrate and it was interesting to see that not all the liquids caused the biscuits to break down.
Mr Gibson from affinity water treated us to an assembly where we learnt that the average person uses 160 litres of water per day. If you don’t turn the tap off when you brush your teeth you could be wasting up to 20 litres of water a day!
