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!
Each week we will be running a weekly workshop with fun ideas to help support learning at home. We often make things that the children can take home with them to carry on learning at home.
Everybody is welcome whether it is your nursery session or not. If you are attending nursery that day just come through to nursery, alternatively if your child attends afternoons or the beginning of the week just come from the office. Thank you to all the parents who attended.
This week our workshop was making slime.
Next week we will be making our own bath crayons.
On Wednesday we had a very exciting lunch time. All our parents were invited to come and try a school dinner with us. We all went up to the hall and chose a dinner together. Parents could see and taste what we had for school dinner and could find out what the children would try at school.
Thank you to everybody who came, we hope you enjoyed your dinner!
In nursery we had a very exciting trip to The City Hall. We went to ‘Sing a Story’ from Music in the Round. We had been getting ready for our trip by learning the stories .. Little Rabbit Foo Foo, The Train Ride, Three Little Pigs and The Grand Old Duke of York.
We went to The City Hall and had a very exciting afternoon. We went down on the tram with all of our friends.
When we got to the City Hall there was an orchestra and we saw lots of interesting instruments we had never seen before. There were lots of songs and actions to join in with and there were even amazing actors who dressed up and acted out the stories. We were so happy that our grown-ups came with us too.
Thank you to everybody who came!
Today was our story telling workshop. We have been learning the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We learnt the words and actions to help us to remember them. Then we performed the story for our grown-ups.
After that we went back to our classroom and waited for our grown ups…
When our grown-ups arrived they helped us to order the pictures from the story. We thought about the days of the week and counted the fruit to match the day. We used our scissors carefully and stuck our pictures on in order…
Thank you to all the grown-ups who came. Don’t worry if you missed it, here are the words and story map, why not see if you can have a go at telling the story at home…
We had lots of fun at our special Father’s Day event. We invited all the dads, step-dads, grandads and uncles to join us for fun and games.
We played lots of games and our families joined us for fun and activities in our yard.
We had lots of fun and some of the dads and grandads even came to help us in the classroom making some sand slime for the children.
Thank you to everybody who came. We love having our grown-ups join us for special events and can’t wait for the next one!
