Thank you to all the parents who came to join us for our Father’s Day event this afternoon. We had to postpone last week’s event due to all the rain but luckily this afternoon was lovely and sunny!
Lots of dads, grandads, uncles, brothers and godfathers came to join us for games and activities…
Last week we had lots of fun making special medal biscuits for our dads for Father’s Day…
We also made cards and thought about what made our dad’s special…
A huge thank you to everyone who came this afternoon, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
Last week lots of the children were busy making picnics with their friends so this week we had a real teddy bear’s picnic! The children decided they would like buns and pizza for their picnic and we wrote a letter home to bring in our teddies.
We wanted the children to be able to join in with the process of cooking and baking so we found an easy peasy pizza dough recipe that the children could do themselves.
We also used a mini-oven so we could watch the pizzas cook and talk about the changes.
As well as making pizzas we worked together to bake buns for our picnic too. We have been learning our numbers to 10 and that helped us to read our recipe. We used the numbers and pictures to follow the recipe ourselves.
Then we took our pizzas and buns and went to the secret garden for our teddy bears picnic!
We love seeing your photos of baking and cooking together at home. Baking activities are a great way to learn about numbers and measures as well as learning about changes and how to keep ourselves safe.
We have had a busy first two weeks back at nursery! As well as lots of familiar faces from last year we have also had lots of new friends starting nursery.
We have been busy getting to know our new children, having fun in PE, exploring our classroom and doing lots of playing! We’ve also had a mini-trip, baked a cake and searched for our missing snail!
When we got back to nursery Gary the Snail was missing! The children searched all around the school and talked to lots of teachers to see if anyone had seen Gary. Luckily he came back this week, he had been on his holidays at Oliver’s house.
Last Friday we went on a mini-trip to Asda. The children were very sensible walking up the hill and crossing the road safely. We looked at the building site as we went then followed our shopping list and collected everything we needed. The children even paid for the shopping.
This week we used our ingredients to bake a cake…
I wonder what we will get up to next week…
In Lula and Millie’s words last Wednesday was the ‘BEST DAY EVER!’
We started our day with our Muddy Puddles sponsored walk for Save the Children and searched for Peppa Pig and friends as we walked around school and the secret garden. Then we came back to nursery and had our bake sale with our grown-ups. We had been busy baking buns and biscuits at nursery and lots of parents brought things from home too. After that we all went ice skating! Our MUGA pitch turned into a temporary ice skating rink for the day and we all had lots of fun trying ice skating. Then we did it all again in the afternoon!
Have a look at our video to see what we got up to…
Thank you to everyone involved, don’t forget to keep bringing in your sponsor money and we will update you with the final amount we raise.
One day Asaad asked if he could make a video. We set up a video diary and the children learnt how to record themselves as they sang songs and told stories.
Everyone loved the idea and decided we should make a ‘real movie’ together. The children had lots of different ideas for their movie.
In the end we decided on the story of The Three Little Pigs. Everybody had their own job. We made masks and costumes for the different characters, build sets inside and outside, told the story using storyboards to help us, acted out the story, used puppets to tell the story, made sound effects, directed our friends and recorded our movie. What a busy week!
Then we thought about who might like to see our movie. We decided our grown-ups would so we made tickets, posters and invitations.
Then Paige said we should make jam tarts and Oliver, Lula, Toochi and Roman thought popcorn and hot chocolate!
We baked our jam tarts and got everything ready for our movie mornings and lots of our grown-ups stayed!
We had a lovely time and the children were all very proud of their movie. Thank you to everyone who stayed.
The children have already been talking about a Christmas movie for the sequel so watch this space!
This week we have been doing some elephant themed baking ready for Macmillan Coffee Morning (Today) and Grandparent’s Afternoon Tea (on Monday).
We decided to make elephant cake pops. They were a bit messy!
First we crumbled up cake and mixed it with frosting. Then we rolled it into balls and popped it in the fridge.
After that we melted white and blue chocolate over a candle so the children could watch it change. Then we dipped the cake pops in and added buttons and icing for the elephant’s face.
After a few melted elephant faces we also made some sparkly cake pops…
Then we made Elmer biscuits. We mixed our ingredients and rolled them out and cut them into elephant shapes.
Once they were baked we decorated them with icing sugar and smarties.
Once all our baking was finished we took them to be sold for Macmillan Coffee Morning and bought some of our own!
We had a lovely time baking. We hope everyone enjoyed our elephants!
We had lots of fun baking for Fairtrade week. We sold our baking to our parents and the adults in school and raised an amazing £82 for Sport Relief.
The children were in charge of choosing what to bake, baking, washing up, selling some of the baking, making a banner and even helped to count the money!
We baked brownies, chocolate cake and coffee buns, a huge thank you to everybody who bought our creations, we hope you enjoyed them!
We learnt what the word charity meant and why we might raise money to help other people.
Ella – we been raising money for charity, for people who aren’t as lucky as us
We talked about how some people might not be very well, how they might not have warm clothes, homes or families.
What might people need?
Jayden – medicine
Jessica – shoes
Eviee – sleeping bags
Kian – buy people scarves and gloves
Amelia – buy food
Rehan – hats
Theo – coats
Evie – mummies and daddies
