We had a little Easter Fun in nursery. Firstly we painted our Easter eggs beautifully and then we went outdoors to find a hill. Look at us having fun and rolling our Easter eggs down the hill.
This term our topic has been Our Colourful World. We have been reading the book The Rainbow Fish and exploring the colours of the rainbow using all our senses.
Each week we discover a different colour by touching and feeling lots of different things that are all the same colour and we use some of these materials to make a scale for our very own rainbow fish. Then we get to taste, feel, smell and play with food items that are that week’s colour. It has been fun to discover some new foods and juices. Some of the things we have liked: sweet chilli rice crackers, green beans, strawberries, baked beans & orange smoothie. Some of the things we haven’t liked: jelly (it was fun to play with but we didn’t like the texture in our mouths), radishes, green smoothie, tomatoes.
Room 3 were very lucky to go on a trip to Jump In to celebrate our classmate’s 8th birthday!
We had a wonderful time bouncing on the trampolines and playing in the sponge pool and by the end of the day we were all ready for an early night!
The children in Room 11 have been participating in a range of fun activities and learning how to keep healthy. They have been having fun at swimming, cooking and taking part in PE lessons. Some of them have been showing how competitive they are when playing curling.
All of them have been showing their responses to different smells and some of them have been very clear of what they like (mint, onion).
They have been having great fun exploring how their bodies work and what they can do when they really want and try.

Monday the 22nd of April was Earth Day. Class 6 took part in a scavenger hunt to see how many different items we could find when we were out in the community, relating to caring for the environment. We also managed to find a few in school too!
We regularly play maths games in groups and with partners in room 10 to consolidate some of our learning from our maths lessons and to make maths fun.
In these pictures we are using non-standard measures, calculators and some of the mathematical language we know.
We have a new Makaton sign of the fortnight starting today … HELP. Here is the link for a handy little video showing you how to sign not only help but also help me and help you. There is also an activity sheet with ideas to ‘help you’ use this sign. Happy signing🖐 🤚
One pupil had a lovely time in music therapy with Emmeline this week. He enjoyed turn-taking and copying on the piano as well as singing well-known nursery rhymes, especially ‘Row, Row, Row Your Boat’. There was also lots of fun as he started making up his own songs with a lot of “Achoos!” and “Uh-Ohs!”
The pupils in Room 9 recycled plastic bottles and made beautiful, colourful vases which can be used for holding flowers. Our pupils selected the colours they wanted to use and made choices about how to paste the cellophane onto the bottles. In doing so, the boys and girls were reinforcing the skills they developed previously when they made their Elmer the Elephant models. They commented on their work and were encouraged to comment on each other’s vases when they were on display in our classroom.
