Making Biscuits

The children have been learning all about families and celebrations using a variety of different texts. One of our favourite stories is So Much where a family organise a surprise party for Dad.

We decided to have our own party and thought it would be a great idea to make some biscuits. The children worked together to write the ingredients and followed the recipe.

The children then chose how they wanted to decorate their creations.

The end result were some beautifully decorated and yummy biscuits.

 

 

RM’s First Educational Visit to St Mary Frobisher Park

On Tuesday 25th September RM went on their first ever educational visit. To explore our local area and give the children the opportunity to experience learning outside of school we decided to visit St Mary Frobisher Park.

The children were fantastic throughout and showed how grown up they were. They took turns using the swing and slide and demonstrated their great climbing and balancing skills on the climbing bars. Some of the children even managed to squeeze in some football.

Everything went really well (except for Mr Moore’s choice of green bananas for a snack) and I would like to thank again the children and the volunteers who made our visit possible.

We Need Your Recycling!

Make some room in your recycling bins and bring us any clean cardboard, paper or plastic boxes and cartons that can be used in junk modelling.

Cereal boxes, milk cartons, tin foil tubes, egg boxes etc. they may look like rubbish to you, but our inventors are ready to turn them into the next space station, fire truck…the possibilities are endless.

There are modelling boxes inside and outside that junk modelling materials can be dropped into in the mornings.

Thanks 🙂

The Grand Opening of Reception’s Minibeast Hotel!

This half-term we have been learning all about the things that share our home – Mother Earth.  We have been finding out lots of facts about minibeasts, including where they live and what they eat.  We decided to build our own minibeast hotel.  We thought about the materials we would need, and then worked together to build each layer of the hotel.  We hope our hotel will help to keep the minibeasts at Edmund Waller warm and safe!

Take a look at some photos from our Grand Opening:

What materials did we use? Which minibeasts do you think would like to live in our hotel? What minibeast facts do you know?

      

 

Thank you to all the parents and carers for donating fantastic materials and coming along to our Grand Opening!
