The Busy Bees welcomed some eggs into their classroom. We had lots of wonderful ideas and we were all very curious to see what would hatch from them! Some of the children’s ideas were dinosaurs, aliens, fish and turtles! Read on to find out what we got…
We kept the eggs warm in the incubator.
The first eggs begin to hatch. The children were excited to see the chicks for the first time.
When the chicks were big enough we moved them into a brooder box. This is so they had more space to move around.
The children got to hold and stroke the chicks.
The children were eager to show everyone how much they have learned about the Secrets of Success during their time as a Busy Bee! We cannot believe how fast this year has gone and are very proud of their achievements.
The girls show us some fab hula-hooping. Remember, don’t give up and if we don’t succeed the first time, just keep trying.
The children acted out one of their favourite stories of the year – We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen.
In the grand finale the children sang Let It Go from the film Frozen. It is their absolute favourite!
The children have taken part in Yoga sessions this term. They follow a story as they copy the Yoga stretches. Our favourite has been the story of Winnie the Witch.
Stay and Play Day
We invited parents and carers into school to see just exactly what we get up to all day! The children really enjoyed showing everyone what they had been learning about.
The children used the gardening tools to plant some seeds. We looked after them and kept checking to see how tall they had grown.
The children used shaving foam and corn flour to make play dough and improve their hand and finger strength. This helps them to hold a pencil correctly and encourages better handwriting.
The children paint the rocks that they have collected outdoors to turn them into creatures!
Remembering the Soldiers
The children planted poppy seeds to celebrate the 100th year since the war began.
The children raked over the soil so that the seeds can germinate.
The children spread the seeds across the soil in small handfuls. We will keep a close eye on them as they grow.
The children really enjoyed cooking this term. One of the things they loved making the most was baguettes. They selected their own toppings, used a knife to chop the ingredients they needed and grated the cheese.
To celebrate the World Cup in Brazil the children turned into footballers! They learned how to share the ball by passing.
