RP had a lovely time at the Eco Park this afternoon.
We found a secret note next to a tree. It was from Eric the Elf. The elves were going to have a party in the woods and they needed somewhere to sleep after the party.
We spent the afternoon building shelters for all of the elves and the fairies. The children carefully selected sticks and leaves to make walls, roofs, carpets, beds, chairs and tables. Some children even made ‘fires’ and playgrounds for the elves too!
Thank you to all of the mums who came with us on the trip. We really appreciate your help and support.
We had a great trip to the EcoPark. Guy met us at the gate and told us that he needed help to solve a mystery. An elf had left a mysterious message. Guy read the letter which asked us to help build some little dens for his friends. Everyone collected sticks to make the dens and leaves and feathers for little beds. One den even had a chimney and a drive! We would like to say a big thank you to the parents that helped us today. We couldn’t have gone without your help. If you would like to visit the Eco Park Guy does run some activities for families during the holidays. To find out more visit http://www.bbcwildlife.org.uk/EcoPark

Year two are creating a new prototype vehicle for Cadbury’s. Today we needed to choose our materials and then turn the boxes inside out so we had a plain surface to decorate. It was fun but trickier than we thought!
We have been learning to divide, by finding different ways to group objects.
At Starbank Nursery the children have enjoyed sharing the book ” We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” . The children have acted out the story in the garden. On Friday the staff acted out the story for the children . All the children joined in with the repeated refrains.
Look at the photographs and listen to Micheal Rosen performing We’re Going on a Bear Hunt
Roman Wow Starter
On Wednesday 25th January 3U, 3P and 3M had a Roman called Dom visit them. This was a brilliant experience for the children to start their Roman topic.
In the morning they were introduced to who the Romans were and where they came from. After that, they were told the story of how Rome was named. They got to act out the story. Also they got to take part in a Roman quiz and games from the period. In the afternoon things got even more interesting when they got to become soldiers and see weapons.
It was a brilliant day; the children learned many interesting facts and got to handle real artefacts. This really helped them appreciate the rest of the Roman topic and enthused their love of history.

In year 2 we have been testing games and changing the algorithms to make them harder or easier. Today we designed and tested our own games!

We had to give the monsters instructions or algorithms to make them move and plan our maze. Sometimes we forgot to leave a space for the player to move around!
