Miss Green and Mrs Riley
Here is the induction presentation we gave to parents.
Nee Nor Nee Nor!! 24 November
We met the Immingham East Fire Brigade. They came to our school to talk to us about how they help us. We saw the fire engine and met 5 Firemen. They showed us lots of their equipment including the jaws of life, first aid kit, drills, water pump and hoses.
We learnt how they help people who are involved in a fire as well as in car accidents. We couldn't believe how big the jaws of life were!! They can cut through cars! We also found out that they help people who may be struggling to swim in the sea and we saw how they would throw a 20m line to help drag them back to the beach. We all even got to squirt the water from the hoses and even heard the loud siren and saw the blue flashing lights when they left.
Reception: Police Officer visit 23 November
As part of our People who help us topic, we were visited by Diane Bell, our local PCSO. She talked to the children about her role within the community, what equipment and uniform she wears. We all asked questions and even got to wear her Police officer hat!! We are also making some police officer badges using shapes this week.
Reception: Walk to the Post Office 23 November
As part of our People who help us topic, we have been learning about the Post Office. We learnt where we buy stamps from and what happens to our letters once we place them in the post box. We all wrote letters to Father Christmas and on Friday we walked to Londis in Immingham to all buy a stamp. We used our road safety skills to cross the road carefully. We placed the stamps in the correct corner of our envelopes and posted them in the post box. We are hoping Father Christmas receives them and maybe he will even seen us a reply!
This week we have been celebrating Halloween. Our focus story this week is Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson which meant we were able to come into school in fancy dress. Throughout the week we having played traditional Halloween games, like apple bobbing, made magic mud using cornflour and food colouring, created witches masks out using common 2D shapes and made wands using different length sticks.
During our Literacy sessions, we have written our own spells and potions to create a spell and potion book. Some of the recipes are gruesome!! Happy Halloween!
On Tuesday 10th October we took part in a tennis session with Mr Mark Henry.
We practised throwing and catching a tennis ball, holding a racket correctly and moving side to side. We tried very hard and really enjoyed our tennis lesson. Have a look at our photos.
