This week the nursery children did lots of science experiments. They showed great curiosity.
Coke and Mints Experiment
The children were asked what might happen when I put mint sweets into a bottle of coke?
“they might dissolve…” Maceylee
“they will sink to the bottom.” Mikey
“it might go whoosh…” Joel “yes it will explode” Hannah “Like a volcaneo” Ben
Louis said…. “don’t do it miss….”
Add small drops of water slowly to cornflour and watch as the consistency changes.
Sink or Float?
We put honey, water and oil into a container. We watched as the liquids settled and discovered that the heaviest liquid, the honey, went to the bottom and the lightest liquid, the oil, moved to the top.
We had a selection of objects to put into the liquids and discovered which ones would sink and which ones would float. The children did well at guessing what would happen to the objects. They were amazed to find out that some objects would sink through the oil but float above the water.
We had 5 pots and put coloured water into every other pot. We added kitchen roll to connect the pots and observed throughout the day as the water ‘walked’ up the kitchen roll into the empty pots. The colours mixed together to make a rainbow.
We had a fabulous time picking strawberries, raspberries, red currents and gooseberries at Calremont Farm. Yummy!!
The morning children loved our day out at Claremont Farm. The strawberries tasted beautiful. Happy faces all round.
Afternoon nursery joined in with Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday celebrations. We enjoyed sandwiches, cake and scones.
Thank-you to all the parents who joined in with the celebrations.
Morning nursery celebrated Queen Elizbeth’s 90th
birthday in true royal fashion with ‘champagne’ breakfast.

Thank you all the parents who joined in with the celebrations.
Preparations are in full swing………..
Ready to start……… yum yum!!
As part of All Saints Autism Awareness Week our pupils have been learning all about Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD). As a school we want to ensure that our pupils develop their understanding of Autism and appreciate that everyone is unique.
This week the children have taken part in ASD awareness sessions, have participated in an own clothes day to fund raise for the National Autistic Society as well as releasing balloons carrying messages of how we can support people with ASD in our schools.
We eagerly await a response from the public to see how far our Autism awareness messages have spread.
Here are some of the messages we sent into world:
We would like to say a big thank you to parents/ guardians who have supported the school with fundraising this week!
The total raised from own clothes day and parental donations was a staggering £228.54. A cheque for this amount will now be sent to the National Autistic Society so that they can continue to support families across the country.
Thank-you to all the parents who joined in with Zumba and a huge to thanks to Helen who made it possible.
It was fantastic. We hope you all enjoyed it, I know the children did! Chihuahua!!
