Today Year 5 visited us again for the morning.
This time is was the theme of Easter. We had to find eggs with letters in, from the slimy pond, read them to our Year 5 helpers and then see how many words we could make.
It was "very gloopy", "revolting" and "fantastic!"
We also made rabbit finger puppets, Easter cards and did some Easter maths activities with Easter confetti and dice!
Our Year 5 buddies heard us read again and they were "very impressed" with our progress, since the last time they visited, at Christmas. Year 5 gave very intuitive comments in their reflections about the morning...
We had so much fun together - staff and children, that we hope to do it again once more, before the children in EYFS get to spend the morning up at Chackmore.
Thank you Year 5 for making it fun and looking after us!
Today we had a fabulous morning with Year 5. Mrs Dandy bussed the children down in the minibus and Mrs Andrews had organised a carousel of Festive activities for us to do with our Year 5 partners.
We made reindeer food, snowflakes for the windows, paper chains for decorating the classroom and Christmas shakers to accompany our singing.
Year 5 particularly liked being the 'teachers' and listening to us read, AND secretly we think they enjoyed playing on our little playground!
The morning was such a success we intend to repeat it around Easter time and again in the Summer, when EYFS will visit Year 5 at their site.
