On Wednesday the children had a fantastic day camping. The day was organised by Imaan. Both Imaan and Amelia had the idea of a camping day while making play dough marshmallows!
There were are a few things requested: fire, marshmallows, food, tents, chairs, sleeping bags and games. We had lots of tents, chairs and sleeping bags for the children to play in. They had the opportunity to toast marshmallows, followed by a lovely picnic of sandwiches, carrots, cucumber and a bun.
After food we played. We had fun on the space hoppers and finished our day with a game of tug of war! Girls against boys in the afternoon was slightly unfair as we have lots more girls – I wonder who won?!

What another fun week in Reception! On Wednesday Mrs Gilhooley and Mrs Laurie brought some bees out of the hives for the children to see. Everyone was very interested and asked some very good questions. The children wanted to know who did the work in the hive and what happened to the bees in the winter. Ask them to see if they can remember the answers!
Thursday was also exciting as we held our S Factor heats. We were amazed at how many entries there were and the quality of the experiments. All the children who entered were able to describe what they were doing and predict what should happen. They were very knowledgeable.All entrants received a certificate and a sticker. Next Friday all the children will be going to the South hall for the Grand Final. Fingers crossed for the Reception contestants!

Yesterday the Nursery children we so lucky to go and visit the school bees. Mrs Laurie and Mrs Gilhooley asked the children what they knew already about bees..
“They sting you”
“They make honey”
The children watched the bees, saw bees coming out of their cells and even a boy bee!
By the end of our visit the children knew…
“Bees collect nectar and pollen from flowers”
“Boy bees are lazy”
“Girl bees are always busy”
“Bees die after they sting you”
“Stay still near a bee and it won’t sting you”
“If you put sugar and water on a spoon it will help a tired bee”
Thank you Mrs Gilhooley and Mrs Laurie the children loved seeing the bees.

Today in PE the children have been developing their jogging and kicking skills. We have modelled to the children how to jog correctly, using a slow pace and using their arms for support and power. They have also have been kicking a ball to a partner showing control and have been trying to retrieve the ball with some control as well. This has then progressed to the children setting up mini goals around the border of the playground and they have been taking it in turns to be the ‘striker’ and the ‘goalkeeper’.

This morning a group of 6 children went to St George’s Crypt in Leeds. We took our donation of food and money. We then got to have a tour inside and we saw where everyone eats and sleeps. They were so impressed with what the children had done and said a “HUGE THANK YOU!”
Well done Nursery.
