Owl IceCream

After reading The Gruffalo’s Child, the children wanted to make something from a Gruffalo recipe book that a child had brought to school. We decided to make ‘Owl ice-cream’ using bananas and raspberries mixed in a blender and then adding raisins and cinnamon. The children enjoyed making the mixture and then seeing what happened to it after we put it in the freezer. Eating the ice-cream today was a great treat!

Safer Internet Day

Apple Nursery enjoyed learning about staying safe online and have promised to check ‘Is it okay?’ with an adult before making choices online! Parents and carers were invited to take part in Computing activities with their children and had fun with the Code-a-pillars and BeeBots.

Rapid Fire 6Ts and Hockey House Event!

Today, we had our second house event of the year; rapid fire 6Ts for Y3/and hockey for Y5/6. A massive thank you to all the Y6 children who helped break up the ice patches and set up the equipment. An even bigger thank you to the referees who, as usual, did an amazing job at making sure all children were involved and kept a fair score.

We managed to have two games each, I will announce the winners in Talent Assembly tomorrow and present the winning house with their certificate.

Let it Snow!

Apple Nursery had great fun looking for tracks in the snow and making their own trail of footprints on the school field yesterday. We explored the ice and snow in the nursery outside area as part of our topic and made some mini snowmen!

Code-a-pillar

Apple Nursery enjoyed taking part in the ‘Hour of Code’ activities last week by exploring using a Code-a-pillar. They had to change the sections around to give different instructions to the Code-a-pillar and then watch it move.

Room on the Broom

This week Apple Nursery have been linking their learning to the story ‘Room on the Broom’. We have played with the characters from the story, made our own magical mud mixtures, thought of and drawn our own potions, watched bubbling reactions and used different containers to fill up larger ones until they were full!

Magical Minds Performance

All of Early Years got to enjoy a fantastic  drama, dance and musical spectacular called Magical Minds. It was a story all about emotions and how they help us to be resilient, hardworking and loving people. 

The ‘Emotion Squasher’ was trying to stop us from feeling sad, happy, angry or scared. It’s important to feel different emotions as they help us to understand ourselves and others. 

The music and dancing were brilliant. You could really see the different emotions just by watching the movements.
