What a fantastic year!!!

A big thank you for another brilliant year. I have thoroughly enjoyed my 5yrs in the FS unit, but am happy to leave it in the capable hands of Miss McIntyre, who is already overflowing with ideas to add to the inspiring environment. As I am only moving as far as Class 2, I will still be around school for support, advice or reassurance should you need it.

Mrs Curran will also be moving on to pastures new. It has been a privilege to work alongside her and we wish her every success in her new ventures.

Enjoy your Summer holidays and keep safe.

Foundation Stage Forum – Parental Involvement.

Thank you to all those parents who were able to attend or who sent in a written response.

As always it was a very informative discussion. Parents were extremely happy with the opportunities given to them to participate in school life, however we did come away with several ideas to consider for the future.

I have sent home a letter detailing all the ideas discussed and our ways forward.

World Book Day.

What an exciting day we’ve had. We got the chance to dress up as our favourite characters, talk about and share our favourite books and act out our favourite stories. We also wrote some of our own books which we are very proud of. Please read them when you come in for Library this week.

Pancake Day.

We had a fantastic day making our own pancakes.

FS1 got busy first weighing out the ingredients, cracking the eggs and mixing the ingredients ready for Mrs Hammond to do the cooking.

After a visit to the shop for extra ingredients, FS2 read ‘The Pancake’ book and followed the instructions to make their own pancakes. They looked at the numbers on the weights to measure out the correct amounts.

When the pancakes were cooked and ready we decided on our toppings. Syrup proved the most popular  – especially with Mrs Plant!!

After all that eating of pancakes, we decided we needed a bit of exercise. We used the spare pancakes to practise pancake tossing and, just like the book, we had our own pancake race.

What has captured your imagination this holidays?

All the staff have had a lovely Christmas holidays, however I’m sure you will agree they were over a bit too quickly!!

We had a fantastic Autumn Term and it was lovely to observe the children growing in confidence, building on friendships and developing their own interests.

We always try to use the children’s ideas when planning our activities and organising the classroom, so if there is anything that has captured your child’s imagination over the holidays then please let us know.
