Percy the park keeper
Nursery children have been enjoying our ‘Percy the Park Keeper’ story. Oh no! The poor little rabbit fell down the well! We thought of different ideas to save the rabbit!
“Put some string down for her to climb up.” Noah suggests.
In the story the rabbit found a secret tunnel and found her way out of the well. We dug our own tunnels in the sandpit and talked about where we would like them to lead us to!
“I’m digging to the beach coz I can see the water!” Zach says.
move over bob - we are builders!
At the moment the boys and girls are finding out about builders. We have found out about how to draw plans when you want to build a house and all about using cement to put foundations in. Did you know if you did not have foundations you would end up with a very wobbly house?
The boys and girls love to be builders in our garden. Brogan, Luca-J, Danny and Ross spend all morning setting up their building site.
"I'll mix and spread the cement," Brogan tells his friends as he mixes up the sand with his digger.
"You need sand and water for cement," Ross says, "Mix it good and it will stick all the bricks together!
Luca-J has a great idea, "My Granda has a round thing for measuring to make sure it is the right measure when he builds things."
The boys are mixing up the cement and starting to build their house.
"A spirit level?" asks Ross, "It's for making sure everything is not wobbly."
"No a tape measurer... That's what we need!" Luca-J remembers, "Sometimes my Granda let's me have a go of his tape measurer!"
Reception class are thinking about moving into Year One. So we have been trying out the Year One classroom. Year One were very busy in the hall so in we crept!
We read about Pete the Cat who is a bit worried about moving into his new class. Then we all did some work at the desks, all about Pete. It was great fun but shhhh don’t tell Mrs Blakey we were there!
