Works book day 02.03.23


We really enjoyed dressing up for world book day, we took turns to try and guess who each of us was and shared our books. Some children from year 3 hummingbirds came across and shared their favourite stories with us too. 
 Can you guess which character we dressed up as?

World book day 02.03.23

No dragons for tea! 

This week we’ve been looking at the book, “No dragons for tea” in the story a dragon comes to tea and sneezes causing a fire. We leant about calling 999 to get the fire brigade out to help us, fire safety, get out and stay out if there is a fire.
We put out paint flames using squirts bottles and pipettes to help our fine motor skills, we made fire pictures using different types of media, some maths counting and matching numbers on the rung of a ladder, we also looked at the different shapes we could use to make a fire engine.  Some of the children used different types of construction to create houses, fire stations and fire engines. We all enjoyed dressing our fire fighter pictures as quickly as we could, just like they have to.  We even drew round one of us to make a fireman for our display. 

Fire service visit. 17.01.23


We have a lovely week. The fire service came into see us we explored the fire engine and learnt what the different things did in the cab. We used the loud speaker and were even allowed to turn the lights and the sieren on, that made Mrs Neath jump. 
We looked at the different equipment they use to rescue people if they are trapped. They also showed us their uniform and how it helps to protect them.


Visit from the Fire service

What a busy first week back we have had. We’ve been looking at Percy the park keeper books this week and have done lots of activities linked to this. Practicing our fine motor skills with threading hoops for bird feeders. We followed some of the children’s interests around fish, and created some puppets and put on a show. 

Christmas tree festival

In Ducklings, we have taken part in the Christmas tree festival in the local church. 
The theme was “Around the world”. We looked at the different nationalities that we have in our family’s and created a collage of these flags, which we turned in to the star to go on the top of the tree.
