The children in nursery have worked very hard this week on exploring and experimenting with colour and how colours change when we mix them together.
We did lots of different experiments to see how colours change
We explored colour by mixing lots of different coloured skittle sweets and adding warm water, the colours ran out of the skittles making a rainbow of colour in the dish.
We also had a go and a walking rainbow experiment where we placed coloured water into class jars with tissue paper and watched the two colours travel up the paper and into the middle glass where a new colour was made,
We learnt that blue and red mixed together makes purple, red and yellow makes orange and yellow and blue makes green.
The children also helped to decorate our stall for the science Fayre in the hall where pupils and parents got to explore and look at what we had been doing during science week.
We also made rainbow biscuits for visitors who visited our stall, (they didn’t last long though haha)
Thank you to all parents and pupils who came to see our stall
We had so much fun!
This morning the children in nursery enjoyed working on the keyboards with Mt Cooper

< Today we had lots of fun celebrating World Book Day, we all dressed up as our favourite book characters and shared our favourite books with our friends.
Today we have been learning all about St David’s Day.
We looked at some real daffodils and the children enjoyed painting there own picture of some daffodils for our St David’s Day display. They got to look at some real daffodils in a vase, and observed and talked about the colours they might need to paint their picture.
The children noticed some of the daffodils had not opened yet, we talked about why this could be.
” they need water”
“I think they still growing” ,
“I think the flowers died”
“Lots of flowers are open, these ones are just green look”
The children even got to practice their writing skills and had a go at writing the word Daffodil.

Today we were very lucky to have a visit from a fireman called Carl
Carl talked to us about what firemen do and how they help us, he talked about the different kinds of emergencies that fireman have to go out to
Like house fires, car accidents, and maybe to rescue people when they get trapped somewhere.
Carl told us there’s lots of things firemen do, they don’t just stop fires, they can carry out first aid on people if they have been injured they also rescue animals from rivers and canals when they have fallen in.
We talked about the number we have to dial if we need the fireman
“We call 999”
Carl told us they we could also call 112
Carl tested our knowledge by asking us what we need to tell them on the phone
What’s the Emergency
We learnt all about things that fireman have to wear to keep them safe
like special boots that are very heavy, a helmet and gloves so we don’t burn our hands.
They also have lots of special equipment to help them, for example a torch because when there’s a fire there’s lots of smoke and it makes it hard to see in front of us (a torch can really help)
Carl also told us about the importance of smoke alarms and how they save lives everyday.
Thank you very much to Carl, we have learnt lots today!
