Healthy Eating Week
The children have enjoyed yet another themed week; healthy eating week. Each day the children took part in exciting themed activities.
Monday: the children enjoyed a fitness workout with Colin Carbohydrate, as carbs give us energy.
Tuesday: the children took part in a weight lifting challenge with Paul Protein, as protein gives us muscles.
Wednesday; the children made fruit smoothies with Vicky Veg and Flora Fruit, as they gives us vitamins and minerals for our body.
Thursday: the children took part in a teeth cleaning activity with Daisy Dairy, as dairy gives us strong bones and teeth.
Friday: this was our 'treat' day with Duncan Doughnut. We were allowed a little bit of fats and sugars at the end of the week to go alongside our balanced diet.
We made a sugar tally chart, to our scale. Each day, we calculated the sugars in the children's lunch boxes. At the end of the week the children totalled 662 cubes of sugar from their lunch boxes!! (the sugar cube chart was to our scale, not accurate).
Science week has been a blast!!!! Each day there has been a challenge in the morning and an adult led in the afternoon following the theme for that day. The experiments included:
Inflating balloons with bicarbonate of soda, making ice cream with icing sugar and cream, the egg experiment (placing 1 egg into orange juice, 1 egg into coke, 1 into vinegar and 1 into water) what change happens to the egg? Placing white carnations into food colouring, does the flower change colour? The diet coke and mentos experiment and the skittles experiment.
We are looking forward to reviewing the experiments in a couple of weeks.
Christmas Term 2016
This term it has been fun filled with Christmas activities. The children have enjoyed cooking Christmas cakes and making arts and crafts to go home for their families. The toddlers have enjoyed food tasting!!
We would like to thank all parents for joining us in a 'stay and play' morning.
Autumn Term 2016
This term we are getting to know each other. Keyworker's have planned many fun and exciting activities around getting to know each other.
Throughout the term children followed the story of the Gruffalo; going on an autumn walk to find him in his cave. On the walk we picked blackberries ready to go in the Graffalo crumble. They enjoyed eating it!!
Science week was a favourite, we had egg day, magnetic day, floating and sinking day, parachute day and water day.
The children have been enjoying the use of our new outdoor play and learning area.
