Wow, how proud we are of our KS1 and Early Years children – they were all absolutely fantastic in the Nativity play this year. Well done to the children and a huge thank you to all the staff for their hard work leading up to the performances.
Early Years acted out the story of the first Christmas. The children (and adults) became Marys, Josephs, donkeys and angels and retold the story. Using the entire playground, they travelled from Nazareth to Bethlehem. It was a long way! The children were brilliant actors!
Early Years had fun watching (and helping!) a block of ice melt and discovering maths and seaside related objects inside. When it had melted completely they compared the objects by size, colour and shape, counted how many and made different numbers with the numerals they had found.
A fantastic day learning about farming, building dens and catching little frogs!
Early Years had lots of fun using their maths and observation skills to do a maths hunt in the school grounds. It was great to see their enthusiasm for real life maths and to hear wonderful conversations like “We need three sticks to make a triangle”, “I’ve got three and three so that’s six!” and “….8,9,10! I need two more!”
Well done Early Years. You are brilliant mathematicians!
