Your Class Teachers are: Mrs. Jennings and Mrs. Roberts
The children all took part in DoughGym to help strengthen their fingers. The children then used this strength when they helped little red hen make some bread, they all kneaded their own piece of dough. All the children made a bread roll and also had a taste of our fresh bread with butter and jam...delicious!
Continuing with our Autumn theme, the children have made pictures printing with fruit and rolling paint covered conkers in a tray. Some of the children also had a go at finding and counting seeds from our Pumpkin, but this was a messy job and the children did not like the feel of the inside of the pumpkin....."it was yucky!"
This week we talked about Harvest Festival and looked at all the different fruits and vegetables. The children helped to sort the fruit from the vegetables then counted which box had more. The children also chose their favourite to colour and put on our pictograph.
We used hammers and safety googles when we hammered the golf tees into our pumpkins.
We used carrots to paint pictures at the Easel and in Funky Fingers we traced the pumpkin shape with the push pins.
This week we have introduced the children to our 'dough gym', this is a fun exercise to help strengthen our fingers for better fine motor skills. We needed strong fingers when we used the clay to mould into hedgehogs.
The children enjoyed taking part in our 'Pirate Day', coming dressed as pirates, playing with our Pirate ship and getting creative making their own Pirate ships.
This week we all made our own AUTUMN tree biscuit. We glued the biscuits together with icing sugar. Then added leaves (chocolate M&Ms) in autumn colours.
Our school is situated in attractive and extensive well maintained grounds in a small housing estate, Lancaster Park, which is north of the town of Morpeth. The school first opened in 1972 and was formerly known as Wansbeck St Aidan Church of England Aided First School until it was renamed in 2001.Read More of the school welcome page
