October 2019 - The reception children used the binoculars they had created at home to go on a bear hunt! We went through the swishy swashy grass, the thick oozy mud, the deep cold river, the deep dark forest, the swirling whirling snowstorm and the narrow gloomy cave. Then we spotted a bear! We quickly made it back to the classroom, locked the door and hid under our coats!
We managed to escape the bear. Phew!
Look at our wonderful nursery heroes! They have spent all week doing hero activities, like making masks and learning hero words, such as 'pow!'.
They finished off the week by coming to school dressed as their favourite hero.
We had a good mix of superheroes and every day heroes.
Lots of fun!
Reception had a visit from the 'Owl Man' called Gareth. He showed us lots of different types of owls and taught us some amazing facts! We got the stroke the owl called 'Kermit' and got to hold him! We even got to see some of the owls fly!
September 2019 - The Bug Lady came to visit us in school! She brought lots of different minibeasts for us to explore, including; stick insects, snails and cockroaches!
We looked carefully at each minibeast and learnt some interesting facts.
We also got to feel and hold some of the minibeasts and some children even had a stick insect crawl up their leg!
We all had great fun and enjoyed looking back at our pictures.
As part of our topic, 'The Sea', we became pirates for the day.
We dressed up, went on a treasure hunt, played pirate games, walked the plank, sang sea shanties and learnt some pirate sayings! We had lots of fun!
"Arrr, me hearties!"
May 2019 - When we arrived at school we had a wonderful surprise! Our school field had been turned into a farm! We had great fun looking at the farm animals. We learnt lots about them and even got to pet and feed them.
Thank you to Jacaranda Farm for a wonderful day!
We all had a wonderful time at our Easter Fun Afternoon.
The children had made Easter bonnets and creations at home for the parade and competition. They were fantastic! Well done to everyone and a special well done to our 3 winners; Kate, Savannah and Honey.
We then sang some Easter songs to our grown ups and took part in lots of different Easter Craft activities.
We all took part in the Easter Bunny Hop to raise money for a school Christmas treat at the end of the year.
We hopped for 5 laps of the big playground, wearing out bunny ears. We then came back to class and ate a crunchy carrot for snack!
We had a great day dressing up and wearing funny noses for Red Nose Day.
We talked about helping others who are less fortunate than we are and also raised money for the Comic Relief charity.
We had fun celebrating 'World Book Day'.
We wore fantastic costumes and talked about our favourite books we like to read.
We even got a visit from different teachers, who came to read stories to us!
Safer Internet Day 2019
We listened to a story and watched some advice videos about internet safety and discussed how we can stay safe online. We then created posters to share the advice with others.
We recorded ourselves sharing our top tips for internet safety!
Here are the pictures from our Christmas festivities:
Christmas Dinner Day
All of our EYFS children took part in our nativity, 'A Miracle in Town'.
The children were fantastic and made both staff and parents very proud!
Well done everyone!
Thank you to all the parents and carers who joined the nursery children in their classroom for a special independent learning time.
Reception had a trip to Manchester Airport to see the aeroplanes. We had a fantastic time!
We got to watch planes take off and land, the runway was very busy! We then got to go on board a real aeroplane and took on the different roles of the airport staff. We even got to sit in the flight deck and pretend to fly the plane!
We celebrated Remembrance Day 2018. We watched the 'Poppy Story' and talked about the brave soldiers who fought for our country.
We then got creative and made poppies using a variety of media.
This has made a lovely display.
Lest we forget.
We held our first 'Parent Literacy Project' session in October.
The theme during this session was the 'Reading Carousel Challenges'.
Activities included: Reading a book with sounds, re-telling a story to an adult, reading in a comfy chair, reading whilst having a snack and listening to someone else read.
We set a timer and had to complete all the activities in the time given.
The children enjoyed their reading challenges and working with their grown-up from home.
Thank you to those parents and carers who joined us for the session. We look forward to the next session!
Nursery and Reception took part in 'National Poetry Day', as part of a whole school celebration.
Nursery performed the poem "Zoom! Zoom!", to link with their space topic.
Reception performed the poem "Everybody Has a Name", as we have been practising reading and writing our names and learning about our identity and respect for others.
We were a little nervous at first, but once we were up on the stage, we found our confident voices.
Well done everyone!
