A Walk Through Nature With Room 7

Some pupils from Room 7 enjoyed a walk in the countryside today. We headed along the countryside path towards Kingswells and saw lots of exciting things. We took pictures of some of the animals and when we got back to school we used our Pixon and core vocabulary boards to talk about what we saw. We also practised our maths skills by counting aloud the number of animals. We saw 3 deer and 7 brown and white horses and far too many sheep and crows to count!!!

 

We Are Keeping Healthy In Room 11

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.

PE Challenges for Room 14

Room 14 have been enjoying obstacle courses in PE this term.  We have been climbing, doing hurdles, walking on uneven surfaces and going in, on and under things.  We have also really enjoyed bouncing on the trampette.

Our pupils have grown in confidence and have been challenged with different apparatus, growing in confidence as a result of this.

Celebrating World Kidney Day

We were asked by some of our parents to help raise awareness of World Kidney Day on the 14th March.  Kidney disease affects approximately 850 million people worldwide and the campaign Move4Kidneys highlights the importance of exercise in helping us keep our kidneys healthy.

We decided to get involved at Orchard Brae by hosting a special Move4Kidneys disco on Tuesday with Kev from SoundLightSensory, encouraging everyone to develop their awareness of kidney health by getting active and having fun.

Exploring vegetables and soup making in the morning nursery at Ashgrove

The morning children at Ashgrove have been very busy learning about vegetables. They went on a shopping trip to select and purchase the ingredients required for making soup. Once back at Nursery they had the opportunity to explore and cut the vegetables in our interest table. Some children were particularly engaged and interested. They were able to make and taste the soup during snack. To extend their interest and learning they were given the opportunity to make lovely pictures using the vegetables.

Having a busy time in our morning nursery at Howes Road

The children in Nursery have had a very busy time! They have enjoyed welcoming new friends into the playroom and playing together to explore snow –brrr! We love PE with Salvador, climbing and jumping and kicking a ball. We made our own playdough to play with and went drumming in the hall –bang, bang, bang!! No wonder we are tired by the time we get home!
