Christmas Activities

Wintery weather

This morning it was very frosty so we went out to explore how the frost feels and sounds. We discovered it was ‘crunchy, scrunchy and sparkly.’

Frozen Experiment

We are learning about the Arctic. Today the children had to work as a team to free the animals from the icebergs. They used ice and warm water, and some of the animals needed digging out. They children were great at describing how the ice felt, and also were able to identify lots of different artic animals.

Bikeability

We had so much fun learning to ride bikes   and playing games.

We had a fun mufti day and a yummy Pudsey biscuit. Thank you for your donations.
