A visit from an astronaut

This week we have been learning about space. Conveniently enough an astronaut crash landed in our outdoor area and needed our help to fix her rocket. The children were all very helpful and had a great time. They were then able to ask the astronaut some questions, such as: How do you eat your food in space?, Have you ever seen an alien? and Why did you crash land?

Once their questions had been answered it was time to count down the rocket and send the astronaut back to space. The children enjoyed their visit and will be thinking of messages to send the astronaut over the next few days.p1010500 p1010501 p1010502 p1010503 p1010504 p1010505 p1010506 p1010508 p1010509 p1010510 p1010511 p1010512 p1010513 p1010514 p1010516 p1010517 p1010518 p1010519 p1010520 p1010521 p1010522 p1010523 p1010524 p1010525

Room on the Broom

Our story of the week is Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

In it a Witch makes some new friends as she flies around on her broomstick. We have been acting out the story with our friends using props and making silhouette mud monsters.

We have also been hard at work making potions. The children have used a variety of different ingredients, such as: wiggly worms, eyeballs, slime and bat’s wings, in their recipes.

Funnybones and Fire Fighters

We have been reading the story Funnybones by Allan and Jane Ahlberg. In it three skeletons (a big, little and dog skeleton) go on a journey. We have been learning all about bones and skeletons and thinking of our own versions of the story.

The children have also been very interested in fireworks and the people who help us in an emergency (fire fighters and police officers).

As part of our topic ‘Splish, Splash, Splosh’ we created our own Caribbean Café. We practised making different drinks before doing it for real. The children took it in turns serving customers who could choose their own ingredients to make a delicious mixed fruit juice. All the customers were very satisfied with the service and I would definitely recommend a visit if you get the chance.

Joss Bay – A visit to the seaside

After an hour and a half we arrived and set up camp on the sand. The children had a great time and were very well behaved. We spent time splashing in the fairly chilly sea, searching for shells and building sand castles. Luckily the rain stayed away and the huge seagulls kept their distance. Thank you to all our volunteers who helped make the visit such a success.
