Welcome to Nightingale Class Blog

We hope you enjoy our regular posts which will help keep you informed of what the children are doing in school.

Merry Christmas!

This week we have had a wonderful time making things for Christmas and being visited by Elves! At the start of the week Nightingale class received letters from The Elves asking us to tell them all about ourselves. We also sent letters back to The Elves to find out more about them!

We have been creating some fantastic pieces of artwork. We have created brilliant and colourful portraits inspired by Pablo Picasso for our calendars. We have also created some sweet Felt Robin baubles for your Christmas trees. Below are some pictures of us making the baubles and the finished result.

It has been an exciting week with the lead up to Christmas. We have made a video of ourselves singing ‘Little Donkey’ on the school website. You can find it by clicking Children – Christmas 2021. There are also videos from all the other classes in the school too. We hope you enjoy our video and from everyone in Nightingale class we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Trip to Wells Cathedral – 02.11.21

We had the most amazing time at Wells Cathedral to visit Luke Jerram’s touring artwork: Museum of the Moon. We learnt so many facts about the Moon and also went on a star hunt around the Cathedral. As well as learning about the Moon, we learnt the importance of the Sun, Moon and Stars in the Bible. On our star hunt we saw how important the star was in leading the wise men to baby Jesus. We were told that before books and maps the Sun, Moon and Stars would help with directions by indicating where North, South, East and West were.

Also, there were so many exciting science experiments! We experimented with craters, light and forces. It was so fun making our own Moon craters, drawing our own solar system, watching how to Sun shines on our Earth and Moon and finally watching how a balloon rocket could travel by learning about forces.

Here are some pictures from our day!

Cooking Week – 18.10.21

This week we have been cooking fruit rockets! We made sure that we carefully washed and cut each fruit. We cut them into different shapes to make different parts of the rocket. Some of us used strawberries as the top of our rockets and melons at the bottom to make a rocket shape. We had a lot of fun making them and even more fun eating them!

Exploring Autumn

Over the past few weeks we have been looking at the trees in our playground and how they have slowly started to change. We became Autumn Investigators and looked at the trees leaves, bark, berries, buds and branches. We looked carefully through magnifying glasses and took brilliant pictures of what we found.

Meet the teacher.

If you missed the ‘Meet the teacher’ meeting last Tuesday or wanted to look back at the PowerPoint I showed during our meeting, you can access it below or on our Teams page in the General Channel.

Week 1 – Getting to know our new class.

We have had a fantastic first week in Nightingale class! We have been busy getting to know what everyone has been up to in the summer holidays and all about each other’s families, likes and dislikes.

We have also started looking at our new topic. Our topic this term is…

We have already thought about what sort of superhero we are and the super powers we already have! We have also created our own superhero cities ready for our Read Around display. Here are some pictures of us working on our superhero cities.
