It has been another exciting week in EYC. The children have been playing in the outside Space Station and launching their own rockets into space. We have been making telescopes, teddies in rockets and baking moon and star biscuits.
Miss Whiley and the children loved using their imagination when pretending to go to the moon.
Using toilet roll tubes and various craft materials, the children have made their own telescopes and looking through them doing some star gazing.
Linked to our story, "Whatever next!" the children made their own baby bear in a rocket.
Miss Wilkinson and some of the children have been baking moon and star biscuits.
On Tuesday 17th January we welcomed a team from Capital One into school to support our Enterprise projects. Each class has been tasked with making £30 grow. Classes must choose an enterprise idea, draw up a business plan, allocate jobs within the team then carry out the project to make the most profit they can! The Capital One team engaged the children to think about what they are excited about and what they are worried about. The children thought of all the barriers to their project being successful then tried to find solutions.
The next stage is to complete the business plan and submit it to the school office staff for approval. Watch this space to see how the classes perform and how much profit they make. All profit will be divided 50:50 between school fund and the classes - so whatever money they make, they will gain half of to have a trip or a treat.
To kick start this term's project, "What lives on the moon?" EYC have been very busy and going on lots of different adventures. Take a look at some of the things we have been doing this week.
We have been reading the book, "Whatever Next". We all brought in from home, a pair of wellies for our moon boots, a large box for our rocket, a colander for a helmet and a teddy. We went into the hall and just like baby bear from the story we went to the moon and had a picnic.
We have been using different media and materials to make our own collage scene of "Whatever Next!" and we have been making our new "Space" display in the Discovery room. Come and have a look.Big Art Attack! Miss Whiley has been helping the children to make a rocket out of cardboard boxes.
