Robins take to the skies!

Reception children decided that they would like our role play area to become an airport and plane. Some children have experienced flying and told us about their experiences and where they've been to, so we decided to role play going to an airport and travelling on a plane.

Half the children were employed at the airport and helped me prepare the hall for our passengers who were on their way to Greece.

Passengers waiting to go through security

Bags are carefully checked for sharp objects.

Next show your passport


Boarding passes are stamped and a seat number issued

The departure hall got very busy

All passengers were scanned. Security is very tight!

Finally on board the flight!

Air stewards took good care of their passengers.

It's a tiring experience!!

Nativity


Almost 50 children from Nursery, Reception and Year 1 performed this year's Nativity, 
'Whoops-A-Daisy Angel'.

Isabella: "Now everyone! Are we looking angelic!"

We just about managed to squeeze everyone on stage!

The Kings and their servants travelled from afar following the star.

Mary, Joseph and their donkey were relieved to find a stable.

Our Y1 narrators told the Christmas story.

Most of the Nursery children chose to come on stage.

The shepherds brought their sheep to visit the baby Jesus.

The only job that Whoops-A-Daisy angel was given was counting snowflakes. 
"One snowflake, two snowflakes, four snowflakes....Oh bother, I'll have to start again!!"

Owls investigate a Belgian winter tradition.

Today we were really excited to have a visit from Marijke Kirk. Marijke shared the story of St. Niklaas with the children and the children were enthralled!



Marijke brought in props for the children to explore including a playmobil St. Niklaas and some real clogs. The children had lots of fun trying on the clogs and comparing them to their contemporary shoes.










Marijke also brought in Pete's hat, he is St.Niklaas' helper. The hat inspired the children to make some feathered hats of their own and role-play the story of St.Niklaas.

Exploring more festivals with Owls.

This week in Owl class we have been exploring the Jewish festival of Hanukkah.

We watched a brief BBC Religions of the World clip that explained the story of Hanukkah.


Inspired by the clip, many of the children chose to make a hanukiyah, sometimes known as the menorah, the nine branched candle.


Some children chose to challenge themselves further by using clay to make candle holders.


The children have really enjoyed playing dreidel and took the game very seriously!

Y1 maths in the woods

In Maths, Y1 have been learning about looking at similarities and differences and finding the odd one out. We then moved on to sort objects by colour, shape, material, texture etc.

At Sheringham Park we sorted leaves:
 We had a hoop for green leaves and the other for brown.

 We then talked about what would go in the middle when the hoops were overlapped. The children decided it would be leaves that have green and brown on them.

Great sorting Y1!!

Y1 meet new friends

On Monday our Y1 spent the day at Sheringham Park with the Y1 children from Antingham and Southrepps Primary School. We enjoyed a variety of team building and trust activities for the children to get to know each other.
 Making leaf crowns.



 Den building

 Making conker monsters.
