Dingle Dangle Scarecrow

We sang a different scarecrow song to the one that Nightingales sang in church last week, and then the children had the opportunity to make their very own scarecrow to take home for the garden.

Some children enjoyed getting their hands inside a pumpkin and talking about how it felt.  They scooped out the seeds and then safely used some tools to carve a face!

They enjoyed building, playing, climbing and helping to prepare apple fritters by using the special 'apple machine!'  It was a lovely season before the half term break.

Fruity Friday 

This week we have been learning about 2d shapes and patterns in maths. Children have made shape pictures and repeating patterns which will soon be on display in our classroom. To consolidate their understanding, today we made fruit kebabs following a repeating pattern.  Children enjoyed eating these as their end of the afternoon snack. 

Children have homework in their blue homework books to practise what we have been learning in class. 

Church Visit

In preparation for the Harvest Festival Nightingales class visited the church last week. The children were sensible crossing the roads and were able to talk about road safety. They had time to explore the church building before finding out where they would be sitting next week when the whole school and parents will also be there. We talked about what the font is used for and found some familiar names on the christening roll.

 Thank you to the parents who accompanied us.

Hapa Zome

Sometimes you get to Forest School and you know exactly what you're going to do; today was one of this days!  It was a little windy today - the perfect conditions to make a flag!  The children found leaves and did some Hapa Zome (leaf bashing!) to make patterns on material, and then fixed it to a stick to make a flag!
