Apologies in advance for the lateness of this post. We were too busy having fun that we forgot to blog. Here are some of the things we’ve been up to: We made rockets and joined Baby Bear up in the moon for a picnic. We learned so much about the moon! We even had a […]
Today, we pretended to be different characters from the story ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ in an impromptu hot seating activity. We used our critical and creative thinking skills to generate/ respond to questions extemporaneously. We love pretend play!
In the Foundation Stage we have been drawing and painting our favourite birds. We observed and copied photographs of the birds, thinking carefully about their shape, form and colour. We will be making more drafts to improve our technique and skill with a variety of media of our own choice.
We have loved exploring the story Jack and the Beanstalk this week in class. We really enjoyed re-telling the story and other familiar stories in various ways. Our favourite part was taking charge of our own learning during continuous provision. These activities (below) allowed children to solved problem through thinking critically and creatively. Can you […]
The children have made a smooth transition into the Foundation Stage and have settled into the school routine really quickly. They are already making new friends and together we are forming a caring class community.
We loved learning about different countries in Africa. The children loved sharing their fantastic learning during our Friday assembly, which they even presented themselves. Here, you can see a video of the presentation and see for yourself what a wonderful job the children did!
We have really enjoyed participating in the ‘Bikeability’ programme and have gained in confidence and skill on a balance bike. Some of us have even gone home and have begun riding our bikes without stabilizers!
We have really enjoyed experiencing living eggs. We got to see the chicks hatch out and grow. We loved meeting our fluffy chicks. We went on an Easter egg hunt. Some of us even created and decorated eggs over the Easter holidays. How amazing are these creations!
We have been very fortunate to have some very special visitors in our class today. Zakariya’s dad, who is a GP came with nurse Mary, Doctor Josh and Paramedic Ben. They gave a very informative talk, showed us the equipment and instruments they use on a day to day basis and gave us a tour […]
We have received a letter from the fairies! Poor fairies… we thought hard about how we could help them see in the dark. In the end we settled for a lantern. Now that they can see better, we are hoping they’ll be around more! Stay tuned for more fairy updates.
Everyone at St Chad’s came together this week to commemorate the centenary of the First World War. This was a fantastic learning opportunity for all of the school and each year group had their own unique way of commemorating it. Some classes made their own poppies in a number of different ways, as well as […]
Welcome to Mrs. Fernando’s class! We have had such a busy few weeks learning and settling into our new class and the school routine. We really are getting used to our school routine. We love choosing ways to do things during play time. We are always playing and exploring! Wednesdays are very special to us […]
This week welcomes Sport Relief 2018 to school. To celebrate and support the good work of the Sport Relief team we will be taking part in the daily mile and feeding in our steps to the one billion steps a day challenge. We will also be raising money for the cause by selling wrist bands […]
Mr. Stott had witnessed a squirrel on the football pitch before a Manchester City match. We discussed why the squirrel was on the pitch (yellow sentence strips), how the squirrel felt being struck by a rake (red sentence strips) and how the groundsman could have got the squirrel off the pitch (thought bubbles).
What an exciting assembly! We welcomed a wonderful guest, Michael from All-Star Cricket Club in Uppermill. He gave us a taster session to show us the kind of activities which they do at the Summer Cricket Club and some of us even got the opportunity to join in and practise our cricket skills. Thank you […]
When the Gingerbread Man reached the river he had no choice but to climb onto the foxes tail and soon end up being eaten. We decided to help him by building a bridge using junk modelling and other construction materials in order for the Gingerbread Man to reach the other side. Which bridge would you […]
Thank you to all of the children and adults who helped to create character themed eggs. They look eggtastic! We enjoyed making Easter Nests but resisted eating chocolate from the bowl! Have a cracking Easter.
In class we read the story ‘Room on the Broom’ and we went to forest school we saw Dragon tracks! In the forest we found objects from the story. The witch must be somewhere in the forest. We used our fine motor skills to make broomsticks in the making area and attach characters from the […]
