Music with Mrs Reynolds.
This week we have had Mrs Reynolds come in to lead a music session. Children enjoyed joining in with singing, actions and moving to music. Mrs Reynolds will be visiting us on Tuesday afternoons this half term.
On Tuesday the Buccaneers worked together to mix the batter to make their pancakes. We then went to the kitchen to cook our pancakes. Next children chose their filling, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries with syrup or chocolate sauce.
In maths we sequenced pictures of pancake making using time vocabulary. In literacy we wrote instructions to make pancakes, these are on display in our classroom, please come in and have a look.
The Buccaneers had a lovely time outdoors on Monday; they enjoyed the VERY muddy kitchen - making mud pies and using our new buckets and spades to build mud castles! Lots of children used their fine motor skills to thread beads onto wire to make funky wind spirals to hang in their garden. When the temperature dropped, we warmed up with pancakes by the fire and then did the Hokey Cokey!
The Buccaneers enjoyed an exciting afternoon tasting the different foods astronauts eat whilst on a space mission. In particular the dried ice-cream was a hit!
In line with our space topic, the Buccaneers and Hurricanes enjoyed a trip out onto the field to watch a rocket soar into the air via a chemical reaction. Unfortunately after a few attempts the chemical reaction wasn't quite strong enough to propell the rocket into the air but there was a lot of fizzing and bubbling!
Luckily, a spare child-propelled rocket had been brought along and the children each had a go stomping on the end of a tube which sent the rocket flying from the air pressure created.
The children were very inventive thinking of how to send the rocket as high as possible, some jumped with one foot, some tried two and others took run-ups!
