Happy New Year!
Welcome to the Spring Term of 2024
The children have already settled back into the routine of the school day after the holidays. We are very proud of how they come in everyday with such positive learning attitudes.
This term we welcome new children and their families into both Oak and Acorn class. We hope you will settle in quickly and soon feel part of our Foundation Stage at St Joseph’s.
We have had fun exploring ice this week.
We've had plain ice, glittered ice, ice with bugs in, coloured ice where we painted and mixed the colours and finally small cups of ice (ice cubes)
" The ice is cold."
" It's freezing."
" How do we get it out of the containers?" "Let's bash it out " " I'm going to warm the container."
" My hands have gone red - they are freezing cold."
" It's melting."
" We've got water - where has the water come from ? The ice has melted."
“ red, yellow and blue ice mixed together makes brown”
We also found lots of ice outside. We enjoyed smashing it up and crunching it with out feet.
Finally we looked at how some of the grass was frosty and how some had melted - The children noticed it was where the sun had been that had melted the frost. - Great observations.
