- About Us
As a welcome back from the half term, we have been celebrating the Chinese New Year! We have learned lots about how it is celebrated and gifts that are given. For example, children are given a red envelope containing money to wish luck, good health and good learning.
We have also learned that the Chinese New Year is celebrate by using fireworks and firecrackers. The firecrackers are used to scare off monsters. We were able to go into the Main Hall to learn even more about this special time of year. We were able to dance like dragons and also completed our very own zodiac race.
Today we were very lucky and very, very full by the end. We had the great opportunity of trying some Chinese food, it was so yummy! We tried rice, noodles, spring rolls and prawn crackers. It was delicious, we kept wanting more.
In EYFS we have been really busy with our Space topic. This week we have created a planets song to help us remember the order.
Have a watch and please practise at home.
In topic today we were learning all about rockets. We were curious as to how rockets fly. We decided to test it and see if we could make our own rocket fly. Let's have a look to see if it worked...
It wasn't as easy as it looked. There were a couple of tries before we finally got it to work. Have a look at this outtake...
So, how can you make a rocket fly? Rosie said, "put water in a bottle and pump it."
Tia said, "You have to put loads of water in a bottle and put air in, it flies away."
Here is a link for the information that was shared at the parents meeting. If you have any further questions please ask.
Thanks the EYFS team
We have had a special visit from Kelly who taught us why it is important to keep our teeth clean. The children were shown the correct technique for brushing their teeth and even learnt a quick rhyme to remember what to do. We all had a go at brushing some giant teeth using a giant toothbrush.
Charlie M was able to sing the rhyme, "Outside, inside bumpy bits and flick!"
We then went on to discuss what food does to our teeth and how it can effect them.
Fiona explained, "If you drink fizzy pop and don't brush your teeth you will get holes in your teeth."
The children thoroughly enjoyed the talk and hopefully we all keep brushing those teeth as we know how important it is.
