F1 and F2 2019-2020
Fantastic Story Writing
This super star has worked so hard today creating her very own Frozen story. She has spent most of the morning and afternoon sharing and writing her ideas. Mrs Sanderson and Mr Wheelwright were so impressed they asked to have a copy for their wall.
The children have enjoyed exploring the coloured bricks. First we found that when we put two different colours together and looked through them the colour changed. Then some of the children found the light from our projector reflected the colour and shape on to the board. We carried out an experiment to see if the light would pass through other objects. The children found out that the materials needed to be transparent and colourful to reflect onto the board. One child found some cellophane and wanted to see if that would work, when they found out the light passed through they extended their experiment by creating marks with pens on the cellophane and holding it up to the light and guess what....it worked! The children loved mark making, holding it up and seeing it reflect on to the board.
Iggety, ziggety, zaggety, ZOOM!
Since half term F1 have been busy making magic potions and casting spells in our Wizards kitchen and wand shop.
We have been following instructions and using our counting skills to make potions.
In our wand shop we have used our fine motor skills to thread tiny beads onto sticks and we have counted out the right money to pay for them.
And we have also enjoyed designing and writing our very own potions and magic spells.
We even had a special morning where our grown ups came to join in with our amazing learning and play.
Phew... what busy bees we have been!
Bring on Christmas!!
What a busy first half term we had in F1!
From settling in and making new friends to doing PE in big school with Mr Gorner, we've had so much fun!
We then finished off the half term with lots of pumpkin fun in our pumpkin café and baking pumpkin buns.
We can't wait for the next half term... I wonder what exciting things we will get up to?
Halloween Hamper Raffle
A big thank you to everyone who bought raffle tickets for our Halloween hamper. We have raised £74 for our outdoor learning resources. Thank you all again for your continued support. Love from the Foundation Stage Team x
We loved watching the children retell one our favourite stories: We're Going on a Bear Hunt. The children added a little twist to their ending, there wasn't just a bear there was a Gruffalo as well!
Magnificent Team Work
What an amazing castle these children have created. They spent a long time talking and working together to bring their ideas to life. They were very proud of themselves. Well done
Oneness of One
This week we have been finding out all about the number 1. We have been learning about all the different ways it can be used and shown.
Today we have explored a 2D shape and its properties. It has one side that goes all the way round, can you guess what it is called?
To give you a clue have a look at what the children found whilst exploring in all our areas of learning.
During our outside time we have been developing our understanding of the World and environment around us.
From exploring we found lots of strange mini-beasts and to find out more about them we used books and the internet. We also did lots of talking about changes and the children were amazed by the rotting of the apples from our apple tree. Towards the end of the week we did a spot of gardening by pulling out the flowers/plants that had died, we talked about how we knew which flower/plant to pull out and the children were fascinated by the all the roots they could see.
Fabulous First Week
What little superstars we have!! The children have all been super busy during the first week back getting used to the routine, expectations and our environments. Here is a sneaky peek of our busy days exploring.
