Bonfire Night and Fireworks!

Last week we had a great time using the inspiration of Bonfire Night and all the fireworks we were seeing at night.  Look at all the fun things we did.

We thought about the shapes we could see looking at pictures and videos of fireworks. Then we wrote the numbers for November on our calendar sheets to turn them into our November calendars. We took them home to share with our families.

In the Finger Gym, we enjoyed popping the Bubble Wrap to make sounds like fireworks and also drawing firework shapes in the sparkly glitter.

We had to think carefully about how to make our 3D fireworks. Our teachers didn’t tell us how to make our fireworks. We had to think of what we wanted it to look like and choose the materials we used. Look how great they turned out…

image

We also turned our whole bodies into fireworks while listening to the sounds like made. We had to think what the different fireworks looked like and how we could change our bodies into these shapes. Can you guess which fireworks we were from looking at the pictures? image

When we went outside we tried to draw fireworks as big as we could. We made them bigger than us which was hard work. They looked fabulous though and were well worth the effort.

Pfinally, we looked at the colours and patterns of fireworks using a Magic Milk experiment we used milk, food colouring and washing up liquid to find out what happened.

“Wow look at this what we’ve made. Mine’s all multicoloured.” Eva-Lee said. Callum C said “Wow! It’s cool! The colours has been going into the milk. This is good. The milk is going on top of the colours so we can’t see the colours”.

We loved learning all about Bonfire Night and fireworks!

Glorious Growing

We’ve been doing lots of fabulous learning since the Easter Holidays all to do with our theme of Growing. Look at what we’ve been learning.

 

image This is our new role play area. We made the shop labels ourselves.

 

image Outside, we have a Garden Centre role play and we all wanted to dig. Our teachers made us a place to dig and plant the ‘seeds’.

image We did lots of printing with real flowers and leaves. Can you see the one that has been made into a picture of flowers?

image  We made the pictures into our May calendars. Everyone took their calendar home to follow the days at home.

image We had lots of seeds to explore the feel and texture of.

 

image When we started learning the story of Jack and the Beanstalk we had to order the height of the beanstalks and then measure them in different ways.

Come back soon to see what we’ve been learning next…
