Nursery Loose Parts

Loose Parts Play
In the nursery we have had the opportunity to take part in loose parts play in the big playground with the play rangers who came to visit the school.  As you can see from the photos we had a wonderful time using all the loose parts and especially our imagination.  We have already introduced loose parts play in the nursery garden but this opportunity gave us more ideas of parts we would like and what we could do with them.

P5a Learning Log – 3rd November

This week in maths squares have been learning how to use number facts and the triangles have learned how to count in threes and fours. In literacy we learned how to use  verb senses and we got our new reading books and we made a picture about it.In ukulele lessons we learned how to play the G7 cord. But the saddest thing was that it was our last day of ukulele.
Maths went really well.
Big writing could have gone better.
We are looking forward to P.E.

P5a Learning Log – 28th October

28th October

This week we did our learning log as a class, here is what we thought had gone well during the week.

We think that loose parts play went really well because we worked well together and made some really good dens.

We thought symmetry in maths went well because we managed  to use 2 lines of symmetry to draw a picture.

We think that our topic work to make a mobile has gone well, we have been able to show everything that we have learnt and share it with people. We have some Morse code to work out too.

We think we are getting better at writing about settings, most of us managed to create a setting which another pair could draw from what we had written. It was fun
