Mr Wolf’s Pancakes

The nursery children have been enjoying the story ‘Mr Wolf’s Pancakes.’

The children recognised lots of familiar characters in the story from our Fairy tales topic and learnt some new character’s such as Wee Willie Winkie and Chicken Licken.

We learnt a new rhyme.

Listen to the rhyme at home. Can you remember the words?

We made shopping lists for the correct ingredients to make pancakes. Can you remember what we needed to make the batter?

We played shops and counted our money.

5F – Science

In Science, we have been looking at the different theories around a geocentric vs a heliocentric system.

In the past, scientists thought that the planets orbited around the Earth (geocentric). We now know that the planets orbit around the Sun because it has a greater gravitational pull – because it is huge!

Today, we made models of our Solar System. We chose which fruit would represent which spherical body according to the size. We then put them in the correct order from the sun. Finally, we drew lines to represent the orbit of the planets around the sun.

We then wrote explanations to go alongside the models:

Nursery – We’re going on a Bear Hunt

The nursery have been enjoying the Bear Hunt story and have been immersed in lots of new language.

Here is some of the learning in action.

We did some ‘swirling and whirling.’

Tomorrow we are going on a bear hunt around the school. I wonder how many bears we will find?

Listen to the story at home. Can your child join in with the repeated parts of the story?

5F – Science

Today in Science, we conducted an enquiry into different methods that we can use to separate mixtures of materials.

First of all, we considered what would happen to the mixtures when we tried the different methods of separation. We then planned out each step.

We decided to use a magnet to separate the paperclips from the rice, filter paper to separate the sand and water and a sieve to separate the flour and sticks.

We were a bit stumped by the water and salt solution but when we learned about evaporation, we knew what we had to do!

We poured the liquid into bowls and left them in a warm place. By the end of the day, we could see salt crystals beginning to form on the surface. Let’s wait and see what will be left when we check them tomorrow!

We love Autumn! 1L’s Autumn Walk

Today, we went to the park to look for signs of Autumn. We wrapped up warm and really enjoyed our walk in the sunshine!

We picked up leaves, jumped in puddles and just enjoyed being outside!

Tell someone about the signs of Autumn. What do you love best about this time of year?

After lunch, we loved making Autumn pictures inspired by the book, ‘Leaf Man’ by Lois Ehlert.

Maybe, you could make a Leaf Man at home?
