Seahorse Class - News

Below are overviews of planning 
We had great fun learning how to clean our teeth correctly and what it is like to be at the dentist.
Azure Garden Centre
We had a fabulous trip to the garden centre to visit the reindeers. We had juice and biscuits while meeting Santa. He gave us some magic reindeer food to feed the reindeers. 
Beach Schools
We had a fantastic time at the beach this afternoon! Although it was cold Year 1, 2 and Reception did not complain once! We made animals in the sand with natural materials and shared our ideas with each other. We even went on a treasure hunt! We climbed up and down the sand dunes using ropes to find the hidden treasure.
We had a fantastic visit from Warbutton's today. We have learned all about healthy eating and the different food groups. We now know how bread is made and what goes on in the factory. The best part was making a healthy sandwich!
Pizza Express
We had a fantastic time at pizza express! We made sure we were correctly dressed for making our pizzas. We kneaded the dough to make the pizza base and pressed it into the tray. We added tomato paste and mozzarella and baked it in the oven. We even got to taste a selection of ingredients and learned about where they came from.
Village walk
After our fantastic time visiting the farm and Anwick gardens we wanted to write a thank you letter to Farmer Thomson. After writing our letter we posted it at our post box in Cambois. We decided to go to the park and collect leaves for our autumn topic.
Our build a bear factory adventure!
​Our toy maker topic made us want to build our own bear. We decided to fund raise the money to go on our adventure. We made cakes and decorated these with friends and family of Cambois. This lend on to (competitive!) team games with some of our Cambois mams and aunties! We raised a total of £90 towards our trip to build a bear factory.
At build a bear factory we chose our bear, named it, gave it a wish with a magic heart, stuffed it, and chose it a t-shirt for it to wear. we even got a certificate to show it was ours! Everyone was so excited!
We even got to see Santa and the beautiful decorations in the Metro Centre, before we came home!!
Blagdon Estate
We were invited to go to Blagdon Estate. Around the woods we hunted for acorns, conkers and different animals. We all picked apples from the garden and took one home and some back to school. After lunch we visited the dairy farm to see the cows. Mr Thompson showed us how the cows were milked and what happened to the milk. 
Morpeth Park
We went to Morpeth park to visit the ducks. We fed the ducks and seen the ducks preening, upending and dabbling. We had a lovely morning. 
Forest school
We have been using are scientific skills to explore and investigate animals and insects in our forest school. We have found a selection of mammals, fish and amphibians. 
We also made our own homemade pizzas and cooked them on the fire. 
Broxfield Farm and Alnwick Castle
What another fantastic trip to the farm and castle. We leaned about the wheat and cows on the farm with Farmer Thompson. We even had a ride on the truck of his tracker. At Alnwick castle we made soap and dressed up. We were very tired on the way home!
Bamburgh beach
Another fantastic trip to Bamburgh beach. We looked at the physical features around the beach and compared these to others. We walked up and down the sand dunes which was very tiring! We had a well deserved sleep on our way back to school.  
Blagdon Hall Farm
We had a fantastic time at the farm visiting Mr Thompson, Mr Downer and Sean. We were shown the working farm; where we saw the cows being milked and fed. We walked around the grounds finding conkers and acorns and everyone had a wonderful day. 
Homemade Soup
We have had the opportunity to make our very own vegetable soup. We used the vegetables from forest school garden which we planted in the spring. We prepared, cut and cooked our vegetables and had a taste of our delicious soup. 
We are very lucky to have duck eggs in our class. We have watched them hatch and seen them grow. We have been very excited!
Science Week
We have had a fantastic week! We have looked at a fair test when making a parachute to save the egg from its fall. We enjoyed  our visit Kirkley Hall Zoo, seeing all the different animals and wildlife. The professor came into school to show us some amazing experiments that we could join in with.
Easter Egg Fun
We had a fantastic time with the  parents to decorate our eater eggs for the competition.
Talk For Writing
We have been learning the actions and words to the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. We have created our own story maps to help us remember the story. Then we have changed parts of the story to make it our own.
Seahorse class have been working hard!
What a surprise we had this morning!
This morning we were surprised to find a beanstalk in our classroom! For our Talk For Writing subject we are looking into jack and the beanstalk. We are learning the actions of our story and drawing story maps to help us remember. This will help us with our writing.
In science we have also been planting beans and making instructions. This was very fun!
Azure Garden Centre- Feeding the reindeers
We went to the garden centre to feed the reindeers today. All the children had the chance to feed the reindeers out of their hands. They were all brave! We even had time to go have a run around the park. Seahorses had fantastic behaviour throughout the whole trip. We even had staff and members of the public comment on their fantastic behaviour! Well Done seahorses!
Plessy woods
We had a adventure to Plessy woods on our new school bus. We collected sticks and logs for forest school. Our little legs were tired after our walk.
Trip to the beach
Today we went to the beach to think about our senses. We will be writing a senses poem connected to the beach. We had a fantastic morning making sandcastles!
