The gloves were on and the Ducklings went around the school grounds to collect litter for National Litter Day and Carleton Green Goes Green. Back at base we looked at what types of litter made it onto our grounds, why it's bad for the environment and what we could do to recycle…
Today we have talked about the importance of using our ears to listen out for traffic as we can't always see it coming when there is a bend in the road or lots of parked cars. We closed our eyes and tried to listen to which direction the traffic was coming from.
We have been using 'Doodle Buddy' on the iPads to make our very own buses or trains. The children have been experimenting with drawing tools, stamps, stencils and different backgrounds.
Today the Ducklings enjoyed a visit from the Fire Brigade with their fire engine. They enjoyed looking at all the different equipment, sitting in the engine and squirting the hose!

We had such an exciting and amazing experience when the fire engine came to visit EYFS. The children loved learning about the engine, sitting in the back and front of the engine and using the fire hose. Myles described the experience as being 'the best day of my life'.
The Ducklings were working cooperatively together to help solve the problem of helping the bus to travel across the river. They had to discuss their course of action, the materials that they would need and how they would carry out their plan.
Ducklings and Little Chicks have been exploring rolling paint with the different rollers.
Yesterday we were lucky to have a visit from Abigail and Jimmy's uncle to talkabout his job as a train driver.

Today we have been continuing with our road safety. We have talked about safe places to play and have looked at how driveways can be dangerous as they cross our pavements. We practised crossing the school driveway safely.
Today we had the pleasure of Abigail's uncle teaching us all about his job as a driver on Northern Rail. The children enjoyed learning about signals, different types of sins and how a train works.
This week in Maths we are thinking about how to measure height. We have been learning and using mathematical language and placing objects ( and ourselves !) in height order.
The Ducklings have been investigating how to build a bridge strong enough to carry a train, using pasta and play dough.
