Wet soggy weather and visits from Thelma Three and Cleckheaton Fire Service

The weather turned cold and wet this week, but that has not stopped us from playing outside. We sheltered from the weather under our dens made from tarpaulins and pegs, and made large scale art using powder paint, puddles, fairy liquid and sweeping brushes.

We explored the freezing temperatures inside too with frozen balloons full of water and frozen aqua beads.

We were so lucky on Friday to receive a visit from the the Cleckheaton fire brigade. They arrived in their engine and let us explore the truck inside and their equipment. We had a fantastic morning and have been talking non-stop about everything that we had seen.

Nursery’s nursery rhyme this week is Three Blind Mice, and Reception have a new rhyme to learn which is included in their homework this week.

Nursery did some baking for King One this week. We made his favourite snack, jam tarts. While they were baking we wrote about the jam tarts. When they were cooling Thelma Three snuck into the classroom and tried to steal three of the tarts. Nursery were able to talk to Thelma Three about the choices that she makes. King One tweeted us to say thanks for the jam tarts.

Continuing our topic of stars and darkness, we have turned the dark cave into a shadow theatre and have enjoyed telling stories with the nocturnal puppets.

    Another busy week! And there’s so much more that I could’ve written about this week; Reception’s amazing big writing, a trip to the Garden Centre, Nativity rehearsals, phonics, and some lovely Christmas Creative activities which we will surprise you with later in the term when they go home
