To celebrate the Queen’s jubilee we invited our grown ups to come and play! We made crowns, threaded necklaces, painted faces, played hopscotch and hook a duck. We shared cakes we’d made and decorated, and sang a song we’d learnt together. We had a lovely afternoon, and thank you to all the grown ups for supporting us and coming to spend the afternoon in our class.
Today we had Caroline from the Lancashire Library Service visit us. She came with some special stories to share with the class to celebrate the Queens Platinum Jubilee. The children enjoyed listening to the stories with their teddy bears that they brought from home and taking part in some fun activities.
We have been learning all about money. We have learnt that we need money to buy things from shops and began looking at different coins. We have used our superstore role play to buy groceries using 1p coins.
Today we had the lovely Dental Nurses from Ideal Dental Care Fleetwood visit Bly class. They taught us all about taking care of our teeth. We listened to a story, played a game and learnt a song to help us clean our teeth for 2 minutes. We loved it!
The children in Bly class have been learning about Saint Patrick and why we celebrate St Patricks Day. They enjoyed joining in with some lovely activities.
We listened to the story ‘Mr Wolf’s Pancakes’. Nobody would help Mr Wolf make his pancakes so the children decided it wasn’t fair to get to eat them. We talked about fairness and why it is important to be fair. The children were asked what we could do to be 'fair' when making our pancakes.
They made a list of ingredients we needed to make pancakes and then helped each other to make them. Everybody helped and all enjoyed eating them!
The children have enjoyed some science activities in our continuous provision today. They have explored our dark tent with torches and planets and talked about the planets they know the names of and how big or small they are in comparison to one another. They have explored teeth and learnt how to take care of them. They have used magnifying glasses to observe different rocks and fossils. They used microscopes to look at leaves and some fruits and vegetables closely and draw pictures of what they could see.
The children have enjoyed making lava lamps today. They have learnt and observed how oil and water do not mix and added a fizzing tablet to their mixture to create bubbles which gives a lava lamp effect.
