Nightingales sharing assembly and workshop
Many thanks to all the parents who came to our first class sharing assembly on Friday, I am sure you will agree all the children did very well and were very brave standing up and sharing their learning in front of the whole school as well as their parents.
Thank you also to all those who were able to join us in our workshop after the assembly. We hope you enjoyed making the wooden spoon puppets and well done to all those parents who tried so hard to make their creations look like their children's plans!
Why do we like our village?
On Friday 17th November Kennedy and Nightingale classes went for a walk around Brize Norton. Next year we will be taking part in the village plan so in preparation for this we began thinking about all the good things we can enjoy in our village. Children liked the open spaces to play and explore, they thought the village looked pretty and everyone loved the park!
Nightingales have continued to enjoy all the different toys we have been exploring in our topic, Toys in the Past. Last week we were thinking about the materials the toys were made from in the past and comparing them to materials used to make toys today. Children particularly enjoyed playing with the Jacobs Ladder, once they managed to get it going.
Children In Need 2017
Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for your support with Children in Need this year. We managed to raise £152, which is amazing! We also managed to fill Pudsey with all of the coins.
It lovely it was to see the children dressed in their spotty costumes. Lauren in Curie class won the KS2 prize and Ruby in Kennedy class won the KS1 prize.
Thank you again for your donations, it all goes to a great cause!!
Topic: Toys from the Past
This term our topic will have a history focus, we will be learning about Toys from the Past. Last week we began our topic by thinking about how we have changed. Children brought in photographs of themselves as babies, we enjoyed guessing who was who, children then thought about how they had changed, what they could do when they were babies and what they can do now. Thank you to our baby visitors, Florence and Harry, who helped us think about how we change and grow.
This week we have begun exploring toys from the past and comparing them to toys from today. Children have had opportunities to explore a range of toys including dolls, spinning tops and pull along toys, talking about what materials they are made of and how they have changed over time.
Later this term we will be visiting the Oxfordshire Museum with Kennedy Class to take part in their Toys and Games workshop to further develop children's experiences and understanding.
