Jasper’s Beanstalk

We have continued our theme of growing this week. The children have enjoyed listening to the story Jasper’s Beanstalk. They have loved making flowers and gardens as well as lots of junk modelling! We are really focussing on our reading in FS2 and the children are doing very well. Please can we ask all children to read at home at least 3 times a a week and for you to record this in their reading diary. Practise at home is so important to help the children become fluent readers.

The Enormous Turnip

Another fabulous week in Foundation Stage. This week has focused on the story of The Enormous Turnip. The children have retold the story with stick puppets, used cotton buds to paint their own turnips and explored various different vegetables. They also have done a great job doing observational drawings of daffodils and collaged their own flowers.

The Ugly Duckling

We have had a super week learning about The Ugly Duckling. We have made play dough ducklings and weighed them to compare. We have made our own swans with paper plates and cotton wool. FS2 did a great job of sequencing the story and FS1 are continuing to work really hard during phonics and maths. The weather has also been kind and we’ve had lots of time exploring and playing outside.

The Gingerbread Man

We have had an exciting week learning about The Gingerbread Man. We have collaged foxes, designed gingerbread men and baked our own. FS1 are working so hard in their phonics lessons. FS2 are continuing to work really hard during RWI lessons and their handwriting is amazing. FS2 have also enjoyed learning about capacity and loved playing with the balance scales.

The Three Little Pigs

This week we have been learning all about The Three Little Pigs. We loved experimenting with different materials to find the best roof for one of the pigs houses. The children have also made houses and dressed their own pigs. FS1 have been working really hard in maths learning the number 3 and playing bingo. FS2 have been learning how to find one more and one less than a number.

We had great fun exploring the cold weather and ice outside!

Welcome back!

Welcome back to you all and we wish you a very Happy New Year. The children have been truly amazing this week and adapted to working in the hall for a couple of days very well! Our theme this week has been Goldilocks and the three bears. We have made baby bears face with tissue paper, decorated a bed for Goldilocks and so much more.

Christmas Fun

We are so proud of the children this week, they did such an amazing job learning their lines and songs for the play and performed with so much confidence, a big well done to each and every one of them. They have also enjoyed continuing their maths and phonics work as well as exploring all the classroom activities. The Rudolph headbands were a particular hit this week! We look forward to our final week of Christmas fun next week before a well earned break for all the children.
