Science day - We watched Miss Achilleos mix warm water, fairy liquid, hydrogen peroxide and yeast together to make a special potion that bubbled up out of the bottle. We observed that it looked like a snowman! We had a go at making our own potions during our group times.

BOB day

We used tissue paper to make  our own BOB
BOB is red, blue, yellow and white
BOB went missing and Rachel found him!
Nathan got a BOB certificate for being brave
Kiera got a BOB certificate for being open
Tyler got a BOB for believing in himself

We focused on the story "Oliver's Vegetables"

We sorted foods into healthy and unhealthy
We drew story maps in our group times

We learnt all about Diwali, the festival of lights.

We used battery candles and sat under a dark table
Mrs.Boyle brought in her saari. It was beautiful!
Mrs.Boyle helped Kiera to put on a saari too.
We used coloured rice to make a rangoli pattern
What do you think?
We used air dough to make our own diva lamps
We used felt tips to decorate them.
We tasted some different foods and spices.

Miss Achilleos made an Autumn sensory bottle. She added water and oil. The oil made bubbles and floated to the top. She added food colouring to turn the water orange like the leaves in Autumn. She added glitter to make it sparkly. She finally added Autumn objects such as leaves, conkers and pine cones. We can see all the objects floating in the liquid.

Look at the document below to try and make a sensory bottle yourselves at home!

We have been exploring the season of Autumn this term.

We went on an Autumn walk.
We found different coloured leaves and conkers
We found berries and had a closer look
We felt the pine cones that we found outside
We found Samara seeds. They twirled to the ground.
We helped to empty the seeds out of the pumpkins
It felt gooey and slimy but smelt sweet and tasty!
The teachers helped us to carve faces.

We were exploring the "Starry Night" painting during Art week.

We glues gems onto felt squares
We mixed different shades of blue
We made play dough spirals
We cut out and decorated paper spirals
We painted boxes to be the buildings for display

We have been practising using equipment in PE.

We learnt how to carefully climb down
we jumped in the hoops
we practised balancing the bean bag on our heads

We traffic surveyed two roads to compare which was the busiest.

We ticked off the types of vehicles we could see
Queensway was very busy!
We did the same for George Street. It was quieter.
We went on Google Street view to compare the roads

We went car spotting on the field. What colours can we see? We tallied the results in a table. We saw mostly black and blue cars. We didn't see any pink or orange cars.
