F2 have continued to enjoy playing in provision and developing areas. After our visit to the woods, we have been learning about burrowing and tunneling animals. We’ve turned our reading area into a rabbit’s burrow and enjoyed building mole and rabbit tunnels in our digging area.
We have created some beautiful artwork this week. Children have enjoyed sketching and painting characters from Little Red Riding Hood. We are getting really good at mixing the colours we need. We hope you will look out for our art work around our classrooms as we’re really proud of it!
Last week we learnt what it meant to be a crew. These are the ideas that the children came up with.
A fantastic time is being had by all. The children are being amazing… and its only rehearshals! But such fun!!!!
A huge hello and welcome to Plover Young Voices blog!
What a fantastic day we’ve had! The children have been brilliant throughout the day. The whole experience from beginning to end was amazing. The children sang like angels, the music was uplifting and it was an experience the staff and children will never forget!
4G have used the brand new Chrome books today to take part in an online Kahoot quiz about fairtrade. It was great to see how our scores improved!
We then deepened our knowledge about Fairtrade by finding out what it is and what difference it can make.
Corey said, “Fairtrade is a charity that helps Farmers in poor communities far away.”
Demi-Lou said “Fairtrade make poor people have better lives as they have money to get water without having to walk for miles.“
What a fabulous day! We started in the workshop making edible wallpaper and the after lunch to the actual York Chocolate Story, where we learnt about this history of chocolate from its beginnings in ancient Mexico to how it came to York and the important chocolate manufacturers.
we discovered how chocolate is made from the raw ingredients and completed taste tests to compare.
After that we got creative again, this time making our own white chocolate lollies and then we learnt how the insides get into chocolate truffles.
So many of us thought it was the best ever school trip and would love to go back again another day – I think all the chocolate tasting had something to do with it!
