At Heatherlands, one of the things we have really missed is welcoming parents and carers in to school to take part in “Reading Friday”, which started up at the beginning of the spring term this year. Sadly, it seems that we won’t be in a position to re-instigate these events just yet, so for the summer term, we thought we would offer some guidance so that you can celebrate “Reading Friday” at home, concentrating on a different reading skill each week. Instead, we would like every Friday between now and the end of term to become a “Reading Friday”.

Following a successful Holi celebration last year, we decided to extend the theme to two weeks. This year we learnt about Hinduism, Holi and India before ending the theme with a whole afternoon of celebrating. The children enjoyed learning about the festival and understood that it is the start of spring and all about throwing out the old and bringing in the new. They learnt about Prahlad, the son of an evil king and how Vishnu saved him from getting hurt in a fire.

On the afternoon of the celebration, the children enjoyed watching a real bonfire that Miss Plumb very kindly lit. We pretended to throw out bad handwriting and hope that good handwriting would be our something new! Then we tasted some delicious Indian food. Foysals on Bournemouth Road provided us with poppadoms, naan bread and onion bhajis. After sampling some food, we danced to some Bollywood music before venturing outside to celebrate in the traditional way of throwing paint and water. The children had a fantastic time covering the teachers in powder paint and the teachers had a fantastic time squirting the water pistols! It is safe to say that everybody needed a bath that night!

Early Years have ended their Light and Dark topic by making lanterns. They are now very knowledgeable about the earth, sun and moon and have learnt the words orbit, axis, constellation and more! We have been creating dark dens in the role play and Enzo very proudly wrote a sign saying'dark den' today using our new 'ar' sound! Jared said, 'The earth moves by itself but it looks like the sun is moving.' Jessica said, 'The earth is orbiting, it's turning around Matthew H said, 'The light bounces off and goes into our eyes.' and Eva said, 'When you block light it makes a shadow.' We hope you enjoy the lanterns and have a lovely weekend!

Early Years had been busy all week making soup for Percy to warm him up in this cold weather! We started the week by walking up to Co-op to get the vegetables. Then the children got busy chopping them up ready to make into a soup. We think it was the perfect end to our Autumn topic! Thank you to all of you who came along for a taste.

In Early Years we were learning about Guy Fawkes during arts week so decided to make a class firework piece. We all had a go at flicking glue, sprinkling powder paint and adding glitter to make the fireworks sparkle. During the week we also made firework pictures using paint and toilet rolls! We discovered that colouring in a cutting cupcake cases also creates a good firework. On the computers, we used a special program and learnt how to make the paint brush bigger and smaller to create a firework display.

Early Years had a fire engine and some fire fighters to visit today. The children loved seeing inside the fire engine and all of the tools and equipment that the fire fighters use to help other people.

 

Enzo loved looking at the hoses.

 

Bastian enjoyed learning about the taps at the back of the fire engine.

 

Eva and Eden liked the ladders and learnt that they are tall enough to reach the fourth floor of a building.

 

Holly enjoyed going in the back of the fire engine the best.

Early Years Maths Workshop

The Early Years children had a great time when the police came to visit. They were able to have a go in the car and the motorbike and hear the sirens too. They also learnt about why the lights and sirens are important. The children loved putting the hats and jackets on and some were even put 'under arrest' with real handcuffs!
