 This half term we have really enjoyed having the ducklings to visit! It all started with an incubator filled with eggs and wondering what they contained (dinosaur??!) and then they all hatched so we had four cute fluffy ducklings to care for!  All the children enjoyed their cuddles and helping to take care of them during the 2 weeks, and we were very sad to say goodbye to them but we know they are going to good homes.

Bocketts Farm

On Wednesday 23rd May we all enjoyed a wonderful day at Bocketts Fam near Leatherhead.  Linking with our Living World topic, the children enjoyed a jam-packed day exploring the farm and enjoying the activities.  Here are some photos and reviews from the children :)

'This is the best day ever!' Isla

'It was exciting because of the pig race and my pig won!' Henry

'I really liked the bouncy pillow. It was like a whoopy cushion and I bounced really high'  Edward

Bear Hunt

In March we went on a Bear Hunt to the Country Park. We had lots of fun going under, over, through and round different obstacles on our search for the bear...and we're pretty sure we found it!

Science Week Fun

During Science Week we really enjoyed learning all about volcanoes with STEM ambassador Kerry Henderson. We also enjoyed the Family Learning Night and the Science Fair - it was brilliant to see everyone's experiments and what they had done at home! See our Gallery for pictures from the week.

Pumpkin Pictures

During outdoor learning we found a great way to recycle our old Halloween pumpkins while using our fine motor skills! We carefully selected a nail and held it steady while tapping them in with a hammer. Everyone was so sensible and patient waiting for their turn. We also used push pins to make patterns in the pumpkins, and as they are so small it took lots of concentration to push them in and pull them out!

Light & Dark - Diwali

To kick start our topic of Light and Dark we learnt about the celebration of Diwali. We were lucky enough to have Jiva and his Mum teaching us about how they celebrate it with their family. We made our own Rangoli patterns using coloured rice and also used our knowledge of repeating patterns to colour some in! Then we made some Barfi which is an Indian sweet made with coconut. We discussed how important it is to wash our hands (and not lick the spoons!), before taking turns counting out the measurements from the recipe. They were delicious!

Birdworld Visit

To start our week learning about nocturnal animals, Birdworld visited reception with a variety of nocturnal animals. We learnt about owls, snakes, mice, chinchillas and even a leopard gecko! We found out why it was a good idea not to have the mouse and the owl out at the same time and were lucky enough to get the chance to touch some of the animals very gently. The chinchilla was very soft!
