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.
On Friday the Nursery and Reception set off on coaches to Joss Bay. 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.
In Nursery we have been learning all about where we live. Last week we went on a walk around New Cross to see what we could see and hear. We were especially looking for numbers and we found them everywhere: on signs, on the floor, on shop fronts and even on cars and buses. The children did ever so well and were very well behaved.
Our topic this half term is Once Upon A Time and the children have been working very hard in all areas of their learning. So far we have read Goldilocks, Little Red Riding Hood and The Gingerbread Man. As the children have gotten to know the stories in greater detail they have been acting them out using puppets, toys and themselves. As you can see from the photos below the children have been very busy.
This half term our topic is ‘Once Upon A Time’ and we have been reading lots of fairy tale stories. One of the stories that we read was the Gingerbread Man. We made salt dough gingerbread men and decorated them. We put them in the oven to cook but when we went back to get them they had all gone! The gingerbread men had run away and left us clues to follow. We had to stay with our adults and follow the arrows all the way to Telegraph Hill park. When we got there we finally found the cheeky gingerbread men hiding under a slide. We all had a great time and luckily it didn’t rain (much)
Mrs Grant showed us the corn before it went into the microwave and then we listened to the sounds it made when it cooked. It made a lot of popping noises. When it was all done we ate it on the carpet with pink milk.
This week we has two new friends join us in the afternoon. A big welcome to Anastasia and Hazel who have settled in fantastically.
This week we have been reading Aliens Love Underpants by Claire Freedman. It is a very funny story all about pants, knickers, bloomers and aliens! The children enjoyed it so much that we even had an alien invasion on Thursday and spent time making our own pants.
P.S On Thursday 3rd December we will be having a ‘Pyjama Day’. Children can come into school wearing their pyjamas and dressing gowns and bring in a special cuddly toy for our fun filled day.
