This morning the nursery children visited Primary 1 and the two classes worked together exploring “measure”. First the boys and girls discussed the story of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” and then they took part in measuring activities including length, volume and capacity. The children gave their best effort and had lots of fun. Great teamwork, everyone!
This week the morning nursery class and Primary 1 enjoyed their first Wonderful Wednesday of the year. The children took part in a variety of games and activities with the focus on 2D shapes and 3D objects. Each group also went on a detective hunt around the school looking for 2D shapes. They used 3D objects to print with and discovered which flat shapes they could make with them. Both year groups worked very well together. Great effort boys and girls!
This morning the nursery and Primary 1 had fun at a teddy bears’ picnic in the Wood of Wonder. The children went on a bear hunt and took part in some teddy bear problem solving activities. The children also enjoyed a little fruit picnic and sang songs in the sunshine. Everyone had lots of fun and agreed that it was a very successful Wonderful Wednesday.
The morning nursery and Primary 1 enjoyed exploring symmetry together on Wonderful Wednesday this week. The children took part in three activities during which they created symmetrical patterns in a variety of ways. The children were very focused and tried out lots of interesting ideas. The boys and girls were able to talk about their patterns and describe the symmetry. Well done everyone!
On Wednesday the morning nursery and Primary 1 continued their collaborative learning by working together to find out about Buddhism. The Primary 1 classroom was filled with relaxing music and the lovely scent of burning incense. The children gathered around a beautiful silver statue of Buddha and learned about the Buddhist way of life. They looked at some Buddhist artwork and enjoyed listening to a story about a Monkey King. The boys and girls also took part in activities including making flowers which they put beneath the school values tree and making bird cakes which they hung up in the Wood of Wonder. The children also had a go at yoga and relaxation. It was a very calm, peaceful Wonderful Wednesday all round!
