Our topic is ‘Happy, Healthy Me!’
We are thinking about how to keep our bodies happy and healthy.
We have turned our role play areas into a Gym and a Health Clinic.
The children have decided to find out about how different jobs can keep us safe. We are lucky enough to have some of our parents/carers come into school to talk about their jobs.
Keep an eye out for pictures coming soon…
We had fun dressing up for World Book Day…
The Great British Weather
We had a very enjoyable time playing outside in the snow…
We built a snowman!
We built ‘snow castles’
We investigated the ice outside, talked about how it felt and why it was frozen
We had great fun learning about Chinese New Year…
We followed instructions to make a Chinese noodle stir fry. Then we used chopsticks to eat it. This was tricky and it required a lot of patience and practice!
We had great fun outside drawing Chinese symbols for numbers
During Welsh week we built Cardiff Castle using building blocks. The children had tremendous fun ‘defending’ the castle from outside ‘invaders’…
Welcome back to the Spring Term.
Our new topic is ‘Food Glorious Food’. Take a look at the topic map below to see the kind of things we will be doing in school…
We’ve had an extremely busy few weeks enjoying lots of exciting and fun activities relating to our topic ‘Food Glorious Food’.
We were lucky enough to have Domino’s Pizza visit the school and they showed us how to make our very own yummy pizzas!
First, we kneaded the dough.
Then we spread the tomato passata.
After that we sprinkled on the cheese.
Next, we chose our favourite toppings. Finally we took our pizzas home to cook and eat!
We’ve also had lots of fun in the classroom doing pizza craft…
We’ve turned our role play area into the ‘Rumney Cafe’. Children have enjoyed dining at the café, ordering many of their favourite foods from the menu, and paying the bill!
We followed a recipe and made some tasty jam sandwiches…
We cut them in half and took them home to eat!
We even made ‘giant’ jam sandwiches outside using building blocks…
Outside, we took pizza orders from ‘Domino’s’, picked the pizzas up from the ‘counter’ and delivered them to customers on our bikes.
We’ve been reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and have built some wonderful caterpillars using connectors…
Our new topic is ‘Let’s Celebrate!’
Take a look at our topic map to see the things we will be doing…
We have had great fun making fireworks and building bonfires.
Keep an eye out for some pictures coming soon…
