  • Wonderful Westonbirt

    Published 14/11/22

    Today Darling Class had a fantastic day out at Westonbirt Arboretum.

    We used our senses to explore the surroundings, made potions, hid and found nuts like squirrels and challenged ourselves physically.

    Here are a few photos of our day. We hope you enjoy them.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    We would also really like to thank all the parents and grandparents who accompanied us - we couldn't do it without your support.

  • A glimpse of life in Darling Class

    Published 13/11/22

    We thought you might like to have a little look at what we have been up to since coming back after half-term.

    Building together creates exciting outcomes ...

    In the Nursery we have been developing our pre-writing skills, moving our crayons to music while we squiggle while we wiggle!

    Taking on a challenge - can you balance the two sides; and celebrating our successes!

     

    Using our phonics knowledge to sort objects by their initial sound and sounding out and writing the words...

    Exploring the wonderful world of webs and learning about their importance for spiders as a way to attract food and as a home...

     

    Getting busy and inspired by the school scaffolding and roofers working at the school!

    Learning from each other's experiences about how Diwali is celebrated, exploring rangoli patterns and making Diva lamps...

     

      

    I wonder what we will get up to next week!

  • A busy week in Darling Class

    Published 29/09/22

    This week we have been exploring with our senses...

    Smelling different herbs and adding them to dough...

     

    Colour matching the woods...

    Continuing with our incredible home creations...

     

     

    Building homes outside too...

    Exploring and creating patterns and finding the mistakes...

     

    Investigating which utensil picks up conkers the easiest and why; counting; estimating how many will fit into a container and comparing size...

    Playing hide and seek with our woodland friends and waiting for fairies...

     

    Having fun with our friends...

     

    And last but not least, performing the song we have been learning in class 'Big, red combine harvester' to our school and families at the Harvest Festival...

    We are having an exciting time in Darling class as we get to know our surroundings, access and engage with the environment and the resources within it.

    Here is a little taste of what we have been enjoying...

    Creating our own aquarium, complete with fish tanks, tickets and souvenirs...

    Making funny faces with play dough...

    Counting, matching, comparing and sorting...

    Baking a wedding cake...

    Building up our muscle strength...

    Helping with the harvest...

    Designing and building homes with our own choice of materials...

  • Birds on a wire

    Published 27/06/22

    After creating some imaginative birds, we decided to see how well they could fly...

    We started with a low zip wire and found they needed a bit of a push...

    How about we start them a bit higher...

     

    They went much quicker and smoother...

    How about short and steep was another suggestion...

     

    They flew down this one...

    But what about a triangle...

    Or a square...

    Then home to roost...
