We have been working hard to get Early Years ready for you for September, and are sure you will be excited to see the new rooms - Discovery Den, Calm Cove and Snack Shack. Remember to bring your smile on your first day in Reception as we will all be wearing ours :)

Way back in February, we planted seed potatoes. This week we harvested them and the children decided we should make them into chips!

If your child is self-isolating and learning from home this week, please see the document below for details of the tasks they should complete.

We have been learning about minibeasts, finding out their different names, looking closely at them, to see how many legs they have (if any) and if they have wings. We made salt dough minibeats, let them dry, painted and then decorated them.

We learned a lot about what firefighters do when we had our Virtual Fire Station tour this afternoon (postponed from before Easter).  We were all amazed at how much kit is stored in a fire engine! The children listened brilliantly and learned some top tips to stay safe, including not playing with matches and checking smoke alarms every week.  They also learnt a saying to remind them what to do if there is a fire at their house -

'Get out, stay out, call the Fire Service out' 


Many thanks to the firefighters from Dunstable Fire Station.

The children really enjoyed our Hungry caterpillar smoothies made using our favourite fruits, bananas, strawberries and blueberries with apple juice. They went down really well!

Apple Class you have had some great ideas for your hard boiled egg character designs. Here are the ones which we have received so far. Well done!

Well done Apple Class creating your Easter Egg designs. Here are the ones which have been emailed in so far!

It was a real team effort to create this wonderful display celebrating some of our local superheroes. We are so proud of the contributions all the children made to it!

Just some of the activities the children have been doing since their return to school. A walk around our beautiful school grounds, water play, potato planting and parachute fun!

Please find below a link to our weekly update.

A brilliant day! We are so proud of how well the children have settled back in, its like they were never away!

We would loved to have wished you all a Happy New Year in person, but sadly, this is not to be.  Our wish is that you all stay safe and well, and that it won't be too long until we are back together again.  School is just not the same without you all!


As Mrs Farlam has explained, we will be providing a range of home learning tasks as a guide for how you can support your child.  Our first home learning tasks sheet is attached below.

Congratulations to everyone for making it to the end of term!

We have had such a wonderful time with all your children.

We wish you all a happy and safe Christmas break and really look forward to seeing you all next year!


Warmest wishes from everyone in the Early Years team!

Next week we will be learning about the festival of Diwali. We plan to make traditional Diwali sweets with the class using condensed milk, coconut and food colouring. Please advise of any allergies. 


Have a lovely weekend!

The first books we are sending home are wordless books.  In class, we are encouraging the children to use the illustrations as visual cues to give meaning to the story and develop their comprehension and recall skills ahead of the challenges of decoding words.  Please see the attached document for information on how you, as parents and carers, can support your child to develop these skills.

Please find our latest Learning Bulletin below.  We wish you all a happy and safe half term break!

Just like The Little Red Hen, we enjoyed making bread!

The children had fun exploring our orchard and collecting apples.

They all worked hard to chop the fruit and mix the crumble topping and enjoyed the results, a delicious apple crumble!


A few words they used to describe it were, "sweet", "juicy", "buttery", "yummy" and "tasty".


We hope you enjoy looking at the photos below.  We have also shared the recipe below.

Please find our Learning Bulletin below.
