Our book this week was ‘Bathroom Boogie’ by Clare Foges. In the story when the children go to school and the adults go to work the Bathroom Boogie starts up and all the things in the bathroom come alive! The shower creates a rain dance, whilst the mouthwash back-flips and the toothbrushes bop and rave to the hot tap's funky beat!
Our Rainbow Challenges this week have been related to this book:
Writing – Draw a story map of the book
Maths – Put the tooth brushing pictures in the correct order
Funky Fingers – Cut out some pictures to design a bathroom
Construction – Build a tower using cotton buds
Creative – Paint a picture using water and a toothbrush
Outside – Use the bubble bath to make some bubbles
This week nearly every Nursery and Reception child did all their challenges and Gold Challenge. Great job!
On Monday we got on the coach with the KS2 children again and went to Homebase. We listened to our story of the week ‘Bathroom Boogie’ in a bathroom! We then did some shaking in a shower and tap danced by the taps just like the story. We also then walked around the shop to see what other things that are to do with water we could find. We found hoses, watering cans, buckets, paddling pools and pipes.
This week was sports day which was really fun. We took part in lots of different races which involved throwing, jumping and running. We all did our best.
As our story this week was set in a bathroom we made soap! Mrs Cotton melted the soap base and then we added some oil and colour then mixed it together. Mrs Cotton poured it into some moulds and we waited for it to set. We made three different colours of soap and made boxes to put it in.
We have also been filling lots of different bathroom containers with water and comparing how much they hold. We put them in the recycling bin when we had finished. The nursery children have been using the balance scales to compare heavier and lighter things. We really enjoyed the story this week and we even found a song about it!
Next week our book will be ‘All Afloat on Noah’s Boat’ by Tony Britton.
