This week the Acorns and Conkers joined together
to learn about and perform different poems.
See if you can talk about some of these poems at home. Below are a few links to lead you to the poems. Can you remember what they were about?
The children have been pretending to be mechanics repairing a car by lying under the climbing frame and using tools to tinker with the engine. So Miss Coombes brought her car into our outdoor area for us to investigate. We all had a good look under the bonnet at the engine. We looked in the boot and around the driver's seat. There was a lot to see and remember so we drew the bits we found interesting.
We wondered what makes a car move? Between them the children figured out that a driver needs a key, petrol, pedals and a steering wheel. Some children thought the seatbelt was very important to stop passengers falling off the seat and to keep people safe in accidents.
We cleaned the car using big sponges, washing up liquid and water. The children stood on crates and planks to stretch up and clean more of the car. It was so much fun that some children sang while they scrubbed. The water was very bubbly by the time we finished. Once the whole car had been cleaned, the children took turns to rinse off the bubbles with the hose. The bubbles didn't go down the drain. They flowed away under the gate!
Miss Coombes' car was very clean and shiny when we had finished. Good job Conkers.
