We had a roarsome time watching 'The Lion Inside' performed by the LAS Theatre.
This week we have introduced our 'Time Team'. Each week four children will be selected to help us tell key times throughout the course of the day. They get to wear one of the class watches and have a very important job to do.
The Story Machine
Today the children looked at two different typewriters and whilst they were able to say what they are used for they did not know what they were called. The children were very excited to find out a little bit of history about one of the typewriters. After reading 'The Story Machine' the children had a go at typing their name. Ella even wrote her own story on the typewriter with a little help from Mrs Williams.
Today the children were visited by Florence Nightingale who shared her experiences of working in the Scutari Hospital during the Crimea War. The children then acted out some of these experiences. The children had the chance to ask and answer questions in role of a nurse or a soldier. The children also learnt about the work of Mary Seacole and why it is so important to also remember her today.
World Book Day
After reading the story 'Not a stick' the children in Stone Bay collected their own stick and used their imagination like the character in the book to turn it into something else. We had sticks turned into boats, a digger, cars, a wand and even a lipstick. The children followed the pattern in the story to write their own sentences based on their pictures. Take a look at the children's work.
Shrove Tuesday Fun
After learning about Shrove Tuesday the children in Stone Bay had a pancake race! Great fun was had by all!
Stone Bay Class
Stone Bay have been learning about Florence Nightingale, as part of this some of the children dressed up in a Florence Nightingale costume, hospitals have been built both in the construction area and outside area.
The children in Stone Bay have been writing colour poems and creating colour collages. Take a look at their work that is displayed outside the classroom. It is fantastic to see the children applying their sounds knowledge when spelling unknown words.
Another busy week in Stone Bay
So much learning and fun has taken place this week, a talk about fire safety, learning about doubles and halves, enjoying the new mud kitchen, lots of building in the construction area as well as so much more!
Enquiry Time in Stone Bay
The children have been busy creating their own hospital in the outside area after learning about Florence Nightingale, using the mud kitchen to make medicine and showing their knowledge of number bonds using paper chains. Another busy week full of learning opportunities!
