Stoke Park Sports Relief

Well done to everyone for a great Sport Relief danceathon day! Lots of us joined in with a wake and shake in the morning and continued dancing throughout the day. Thank you for all your donations.

Forest School Mud!

I’m stuck in the mud! Nursery had great fun at Forest school today; jumping, squelching, squishing in mud, glorious mud!
Ahhh I’m sinking!

Build It!

In the Early Years our topic this term is Build It! We have been to see the onsite building site and saw some amazing diggers, bulldozers and tractors. In class we have also been busy building ourselves using different materials – straws, sticks, mini bricks, blocks, lego. We have had to think how to join some of them and found out that blu-tak is the best! Sticky play dough also proved to be great cement. I wonder what you can build at home, maybe using recycled materials.

Staying safe online

Some of the children have been talking about using the Tik Tok app. Please find attached some information about the app, including how to ensure your child’s privacy settings are secure and how to set up the family safety mode.

How much can it hold?

We have started to explore capacity in Year 1. We looked at lots of different containers and thought about which ones could hold the most and least. We then ordered them by capacity. Today we got a bit wet, measuring the exact capacity of some bottles. We measured them using cups and made estimates as we went along.

Fire, Fire!

In Cedar Class we have been learning about the Great Fire of London. We thought about how it would feel to be there and created freeze frames. It was terrifying!

Early Years sing-along and tea party

Pouring tea for Mum, with the help of Mrs Williams, at the tea party!

The Early Years ended Term 3 with a Sing-along and tea party! The children shared their stories, sang their nursery rhymes and then invited parents/carers back to the classrooms for a stay and play session. The children had made surprise cakes/gingerbread men and served tea and squash. It was also Earth week so the children had the added fun of dressing up – Mrs Williams doesn’t always look like a cat!

A big thank you!
