My class…

This week we have been looking at our class and continuing getting to know our friends and our classroom even better. We have been playing games to encourage using each others names and have been looking at each other’s school uniform to colour and paint pictures. We have also been looking at the areas in our classroom in more detail by drawing maps and colouring pictures for the different areas.

Show and tell was a busy one this week. Here are some very proud children who brought their medals and trophies in to show. Well done! It’s always lovely to celebrate achievements out of school.

My Family…

This week we have been talking about our families. We have been discussing who’s in our family and who lives in our house. We made our own ’who lives in my house’ pictures and have been drawing our families.

In Maths we have been looking at things that are the same, matching and looking at pairs of objects.

We have also been singing nursery rhymes, listening to music and moving our bodies to the rhythm and playing games to recognise our names.

FS2’s began RWI, Read, Write, Inc. is the phonics programme we are using across the school. See RWI section on the school website for more information.

It’s been a shorter but just as busy and fun week.

We started our ’Come and Play’ sessions on Tuesday afternoon. It was lovely watching the children show their grown ups around our classroom and exploring the areas.

Settling in and having fun…

It’s been another great week in Foundation Stage. We have still been getting to know our classroom and enjoyed exploring all the areas of learning.

We had much excitement when our new painting and mark making station arrived and have thoroughly enjoyed using it.

Making patterns and moving in different ways outside…

We all want to say a great big thank you to Mr Musgrave for our amazing new fence and gate! We love it and it is already making a huge difference to us.

We made it… Happy Summer Holidays!

Well that was a rather hot last week 🥵 We have enjoyed lots of ice investigations to keep cool. FS2’s enjoyed their sports day on Thursday morning. It’s been a great end to the school year.

Foundation Stage, what an amazing year we have all had. You have all been so fantastic. A huge well done for everything you have achieved, you should be so proud. We couldn’t be any prouder of you all. Thank you for giving us a wonderful year filled with the best memories.

Parents and carers, thank you for your continued support throughout the year and for all of the kind and thoughtful gifts and messages at the end. We can honestly say it has been a real honour, privilege and pleasure to work with your children. They are definitely ready for FS2 and Year 1.

We hope you all have a fantastic summer, have fun, stay safe and we will see you all in September.

Healthy Eating and FS1 Sports Morning

This week we have been learning about healthy eating. We have been using our fine motor skills to cut out foods to make a healthy packed lunch. We have been sorting foods that are healthy and unhealthy and looking at different food groups. We even tried different types of infused water and tasted Elsie’s homemade jam.
We had a fantastic morning on Tuesday for FS1 sports morning. Thank you to everyone that came to watch, the children thoroughly enjoyed it.

Can you remember what we infused the water with? What was your favourite? The overall favourite was cucumber. We also discovered cucumber was the strongest flavour.

Where we live

This week we have been learning all about where we live and where we are in the wider world!
We read the story ’Me on a map’ and created our own maps of our bedrooms. We enjoyed our walk around the village looking at what we could see and even showing some of our houses. When we got back we mapped out our walk using Google Earth. We looked at where we are in the world and we made our own ’me on a map’ and also our own Brandesburton village.

We also harvested our first strawberries and made strawberry milkshakes, we had great fun making and tasting them.

Finally, the sports day practise has begun…
