This term the Year 2 boys are learning all about mini-beasts. They are thoroughly enjoying this topic.
The boys were set the task to make a mini-beast habitat for homework. Some of the habitats have real creepy crawlies in them! The boys are a very able and creative class and they always put 100% into the tasks set for them, along with the amazing support from their parents.
Well done Year 2.
In the past few weeks, Nursery have been working on their model-making.
The boys have independently designed different vehicles made from junk and, with the help of the Nursery staff, have assembled them together. The boys have also followed plans to make tracks and roads using the construction kits and have designed and made their own musical instruments from waffle bricks.
You can watch the Nursery band via this link or catch them at The Metro Radio Arena in a few years’ time!
The infant boys made the most of their last week of term with celebrations throughout the week.
On Tuesday, the boys enjoyed their Christmas lunch with all of their teachers and Mr Tickner. The boys tucked into a roast turkey dinner followed by a choice of Christmas pudding or chocolate arctic roll. The Christmas crackers were a big hit with boys wearing their hats outside for the rest of the lunch break!
Santa then made a quick stop at North Avenue and brought the infant boys lots of magic and a small gift to keep them going until Christmas. The boys were able to ask Santa all sorts of questions and he was able to tell them how old he is, how he pops down the chimney and how many elves work for him at the North Pole.
The follwing day, the infant boys enjoyed their Christmas party. They played party games such as Pass the Parcel and Musical Bumps whilst Mr Gray played the piano. The boys enjoyed an hour of fun followed by a very yummy party tea which included pizza, sandwiches, cake and fruit.
Nursery had an amazing trip to Gosforth Fire Station on Wednesday morning.
They started off with a tour of the kit room and the appliance bay and even got to try out sliding down the fireman’s pole! Next they sat inside a fire engine and tried out the thermal imaging camera, looking for hot spots on each other. The best bit was having a ride around the compound with the lights flashing and sirens sounding just like real fire fighters, as can be seen in the video. Lastly after a quick tour of the gym, they were all able to try to soak our teachers with the hoses and try on the fire helmet and breathing apparatus.
What a wonderful learning opportunity for the boys who now know how to stay fire safe.
Nursery went to see the magical Fenwick's Christmas window display on Wednesday. The boys were enthralled by the Beatrix Potter display and loved all the stories on offer.
Once they had watched each window display, they went upstairs to the toy department to look at all the toys and give them ideas for Santa. After excitedly looking at everything on offer, they then hunted down the NSB Snowdog who had been a naughty puppy and had moved over night next to The Terrace Restaurant to try and find something to eat!
What a great trip and the boys were a real pleasure to take out. The staff in Fenwick commented on their superb behaviour. Well done, Nursery. We are very proud of you!
