This half term our topic is 'People Who Help Us'. We have created a vets role play in Maple class where we can treat and look after our pets. We will be creating box model vehicles and investigating the distance these can travel. We will be looking at non-fiction books and finding out lots of different facts about the jobs people do. We will also be having a visit to Bingham library where we will be able to take books out to share at home. We will also have lots of people visiting us including fire fighters, police, a nurse and maybe some special pets.
We visited the library and enjoyed listening to stories and finding out about the role of the librarian . We enjoyed scanning our own books to take home and enjoy.
We had a visit from the fire fighters. We enjoyed thinking of questions to ask to find out more about the role of the fire fighter. We also got to investigate the fire engine, sat in the fire engine and set of the siren!
We have enjoyed learning about the roles of doctors and nurses. We have made our own x-ray pictures thinking about the bones in our bodies and created a representation using black paper and cotton buds. We had a visit from two nurses who told us all about the jobs they do.
We have enjoyed learning about the different roles within school. We have had visits from Mrs Raynor the midday supervisor, Jim the caretaker and Mrs Cox the office manager. We also enjoyed directing remote control cars and Beebots to parts of the school.
The Police came to school to talk to us all about their role and the different jobs they do as part of their job. We enjoyed asking questions to find out more and our favourite part of the visit was setting off the flashing lights and the siren. We have also had to solve a mystery this week, our class Puzzle the squirrel has gone missing. We have designed poster and filled in incident forms to help us find Puzzle!
We have enjoyed learning all about pets and vets. We had a visit from White Post Farm who brought lots of animals for us to hold and we enjoyed talking about how to care for them. Miss Nicholls was very brave and held a tarantula! We also had a visit from the RSPCA who talked all about the work they do. The children enjoyed asking both the farm and RSPCA lots of interesting and well thought out questions.
