What a lovely year we have had together. We have loved helping you all to learn new things, and it has been a pleasure to watch you grow and become more independent. Good luck in Year one.
The Early Years staff would like to wish you all a happy summer.
Class 2 2021 - 2022
The children in Early Years focussed on India for the SAHM activities.
We looked at the Indian flag and compared it to the British flag, we learnt simple Bangrah routines, tried some food that is from India, looked at clothing, drew, painted and built famous landmarks.
On Friday we were able to look at the other countries on show around the school. The children really enjoyed finding out lots of new and interesting facts.
The children have enjoyed learning about pirates in literacy. In maths we have explored positional language to describe where the treasure and the parrots were.
We really enjoyed programming the Beebots to take them to the places on our map.
Sports Day 2022
The children really enjoyed taking part in our Sports Day. The Early Years staff are so proud of the way everyone tried their best.
We hope you all had as much fun as we did.
The children started this week making portraits of the Queen at Forest school. They have made bunting and crowns for our Jubilee party.
Today the children made jam or cucumber sandwiches for snack. Enjoyed a street party style lunch time and sand the National Anthem as a whole school celebration.
Happy half term to you all.
9.5.22 Muddy Monday
The children enjoyed making under water printing patterns using sponge shapes as well as drawing their favourite sea creatures. Some children used the tyres to make 'cocoons' to hide in. They were encouraged to problem solve how to get out of the tyres safely. There was a lot of exploring the forest school area for new insects too.
Note to parents - In warm weather when children arrive in school wearing shorts and t-shirts, it is a good idea on a Muddy Monday to send a light weight long sleeved top / jogging bottoms for the children to wear in order to keep them safe as they are still encouraged to use the outdoor equipment available at Forest School. The children can pop these on just before we begin our session.
27.4.22 Outdoor Learning.
The children in classes one and two are enjoying the brighter weather.
This afternoon they used buckets and spades in the dig pit and found sea creatures in the water area as an introduction to our Summer theme. They explored the dressing up box and found ways of making 9 by using dominoes.

WC: 28.3.22 Exploring 3D shapes.
This week the children in Class 2 have explored simple 3D shapes. They have built with solid shapes, attempted to name them, looked at the faces of the shapes and investigated building 3D shapes using polydron.
Muddy Monday - Signs of Spring.
The children enjoyed our walk around the school field to hunt for signs of spring. The children were eager to share their new knowledge with their peers about what they had found. Afterwards we made observational drawings of daffodils as well as planting some bulbs.
We had lots of fun exploring Cosford. We enjoyed our parachute making workshop and looking at the different planes.
