Summer A - On the Farm 

Summer A is here already... im not sure we can quite call it summer yet though!surprise

This half term we are focusing on the topic 'On the farm'

The children had so much fun on our educational visit to the farm.  We fed the animals and stroked them.

Check out our lovely photos


heartThis afternoon was a Royal Wedding party!heart

The children have enjoyed dressing up in fancy clothes and eating party food. We danced in the playground to wedding music and had fun with the bubbles.


Spring B - Florence Nightingale 

Squirrels class have all the medical experience you will ever need after this half term!

We have been learning about how Doctors and Nurses help us.

The children had so much fun in our 'fracture clinic', they collected the materials we needed to apply plaster casts to the dolls arms, legs and even heads! 

after exploring how an X-Ray works we created our own pictures for our class display - We hope you like them!




Spring A - Buildings

This half term we are learning about Buildings. The children are enjoying the book 'The Three Little Pigs'.

We have been learning about different types of buildings and built our own using a range of sensory media.

The children have loved outdoor learning with Andy! they are getting so good at putting their waterproofs and wellies on smiley. Once outside on the field we helped put the tents up and waterproof shelters.

Take a look at our beautiful display that the children have created.


Autumn B - Toys

This half term we have been learning about Toys. The children have used the interactive board to find specific toys when asked during English and designed their own teddy bears during design technology. We enjoyed roleplay with the toy food and making teddy bear biscuits during food technology. During outdoor learning with Andy we made our own fire. 

And last of all we have had so much fun just being children and playing!! (especially in soft play)


Children in Need

We have 6 very cute bears in class today! we have been creating our own pudsy bear hats and made our own spotty bandanas. The ice cream man came and most of us had a yummy ice cream! We really enjoyed it as you can see from the photos! 

Autumn A - 'The Great Fire of London '

Squirrles class worked hard when learning about the great fire of london. We had a special visit from the fire brigade and got to use the water hose and try on their hats. Using PECS we created our own 'fire' outside by requesting using red, yellow and orange tissue paper, then fired our hose onto the fire to put it out. Squirrles had lots of fun with this theme please check out our gallery to see the pictures.
