LB 1 enjoy their Reward Afternoon!
Having achieved enough stars to fill the Reward Star Target Challenge, LB 1 pupils chose to cook as their reward. With a lot of laughter and enjoyment, we explored food hygeine, food preparation and a balanced diet before creating our own healthy and ‘treat’ kebabs.
For our Rainbow kebabs, we used fruit, firstly washing and preparing the fruit before stacking to produce a food product.
Finally, we worked on our’treat’ kebab, using marshmallows to create our own snowmen.
I do believe that we have some future Michelin Starred chefs in the making!
Exploring ‘Look Up!’ by Nathan Bryon
For the past three weeks, we have explored the text, ‘Look Up!’ by Nathan Bryon. Lots of our activities have linked to the idea of Space and exploring including research into the first Moon landing by Neil Armstrong.
Our Reception pupils created new rocket designs for their journeys up into Space.
Yr. 1 pupils created aliens using clay.
In our other learning:
Reception pupils have continued to explore the numbers 4 and 5. They have found and recorded numbers bonds in different ways and practised writing their numbers 4 and 5.
We have also explored mass and capacity, using the vocabulary ‘heavier’ and ‘lighter’ and ‘more’ and ‘less’ to explain our findings.
In Science, Dr. Fishwick took us on a Scavenger Hunt looking for different materials around our school environment.
Before Storms Dudley and Eunice hit, we began to create our own garden area, planting flowers that the bees and butterflies will enjoy.
Finally, we would like to say thank you to one of our transport ladies who found a bird’s nest for us to explore.
