What we did last half term
‘Water, water, everywhere’ was our topic last half term and we had great fun getting wet.
Our visits were all connected with water. At Chasewater we enjoyed walking alongside the lake and feeding the ducks, geese and swans.
We went out on the lake at Gailey on both a sailing boat and in the Canadian canoes. We saw lots of water birds there as well and had an adventure, paddling the canoes into the reeds to find nests.
Our favourite day out was to Telford park where we played on different areas, had a picnic and spent lots of time playing in the water park where everyone got very wet and had lots of fun.
In English we heard the story of Nelligan’s Pig who had great fun splashing in the pond with all the other animals. Science lessons revolved around water with lots of sensory activities such as ‘crackle baff’, basil seeds, jelly, ice lollies, pouring and splashing. We also found things which sink and things which float. Dave the Minion was put in a bucket of water and frozen. We then had lots of fun trying to free Dave from the ice.
The whole school had an ‘Outside the classroom day’. We sang outside, had our snacks and lunches outside and did all our work out there. Thankfully it was a lovely warm day.
Thank you to all the people at home who helped with homework. There were some fantastic sparkle bottles brought in as well as two boats.
