Welcome to Nightingales Class at Greenleas Derwent Road. Both myself, Mr Pearce (Class Teacher), and Mrs Ellams (Class Teaching Assistant) are pleased to welcome you to our class page. Please come and talk to us to discuss your children's celebrations, achievements and we are happy to answer any questions that you may have. Please find below a photo learning journey that shows some of the exciting activities we have been getting up to.

The National Space Centre

On Thursday 28th March we visited the National Space Centre in Leicester. We had great fun exploring the space galleries and finding out lots about space. We went up the rocket tower, created our own weather video and had chance to sit in a space rocket chair and drive it around. One of the best parts of our trip was when we got to go inside the planetarium and watch the day and night show. When we got back to School we were very tired, but we had a great day!


Skip Hop!

On Wednesday we enjoyed a Skip Hop session. We learnt lots of new skipping tricks including Cross-over and Double Dutch. We practiced lots of the playground and got to do partner skipping and individual skipping. Even the teachers had a go. See our very exciting photos below. 


Science Week

We had great fun during Science Week investigating forensic science. We looked at finger printing, lip printing, soil sampling and even got to investigate the Greenleas crime scene to find out who broke Sherlock Fidler's toe.

World Book Day

Who Comes Out at Night? Wow Day

We had great fun on our Who Comes Out at Night? wow day learning all about Nocturnal Animals. We paired up with Swallows to do some paired reading and enjoyed drinking our hot chocolate and marshmallows. We also thought about what dreams we have and made our own dream catcher. 


Tinsel and Tea Towels

We had great fun performing our Christmas performance to our friends and family. We hoped you enjoyed it and had a great time. Have a look at some photos of our performance below.


Christmas Dinner

We loved having our Christmas dinner in the last week of term. We made Elf Christmas hats and had yummy Christmas Pudding or a Snowman ice cream for pudding. We hope everyone and their families have an enjoyable and exciting Christmas. Happy New Year to all!


Children In Need

We enjoyed brining our favourite Teddy in for Children In Need. They enjoyed watching our learning all day.

We had great fun when someone came in from British Judo. She taught us some basic Judo moves and we got to try them out on each other. Have a look below at our photos of our morning session.


Hygiene Science Experiment

In Science we have been looking at how to wash our hands properly and have good hygiene so that germs do not spread and we don't get ill. Today we did an experiment where we used flour as the germs so we could see how easily they spread. It ended up all over our books, on door handles, on other people and even we found them on our clothes. It showed us how easily germs can spread.


Forest School

We had a really exciting time in the Forest School learning all about what things we can find in our School grounds. We spoke about Forest School safety and then got to make a bangle which we had to stick things we could find on to. We looked for objects that we different colours, different textures and had different patterns on. Look at our exciting photos below to see what we got up to.


Our Walk to the Postbox

We had great fun on Friday walking to the postbox to post our Grandparent's Invitations. We made sure that we had a stamp on our letters otherwise the Postman wouldn't collect our letter. We are very excited to welcome our Grandparents into School on Wednesday 17th October at 2pm to look around our School and see what we get up to.
