We like to look after ourselves 

March 2024 

This half-term, we have been learning about animals and our bodies. We have been learning how to look after our mind and body. Every Wednesday, we complete Yoga sessions. We are learning different poses and how to calm our minds. In History, we have been learning about Florence Nightingale and the role she played in looking after others. We have been practising how to look after others. We dressed up as nurses/ doctors and helped our peers get better! In Science, we have been learning how to look after our bodies, we explored different foods such as fruit and vegetables. We created a healthy fruit salad and enjoyed eating it!

We Are Scientists!

January 2024

 

In Pink Class, we have been investigating rocks as part of our Science topic. We have been using magnifying glasses to look at the features of different types of rocks. We then learnt about igneous rocks, we picked different coloured starbursts to mould together. We then placed the starbursts into the microwave to create ‘lava’. Once the starbursts were bubbling, we took it out of the microwave and watched it solidify to create a ‘rock’. Some of us may even have tried to eat it!

In Pink Class, we have enjoyed playing and exploring different instruments. We have practised playing instruments to different songs and even dancing to the song! This term, we have been learning about traditional events that happen in Autumn. In Art, we created fireworks and bonfires using tissue paper and chalk. We enjoy mark making using a variety of materials. Out favourite is paint, we love being messy! In Maths, we have used lots of mathematical resources to make two-factor patterns. As part of our Religious Education topic, we learnt about Diwali and how the festival is celebrated. We created Diya's using salt dough, we then decorated the Diya's using different colours.

first bus trip of the year

September 2023

 

Earlier this term Pink Class had their first bus trip to Queens Park. We loved playing on the swings and in the sandpit, we also looked at the buildings we drove past. The sun was shining and enjoyed our snack time in the park whilst watching the ducks. In food technology, we have been learning how to make cakes. We followed our recipe and even tried some of them. They were delicious.
