The Green Grass Playground
Have you seen our new Green Grass Playground?
We are very lucky to have this extra space for the children to play and explore. The children have loved practicing obstacle courses and a variety of sporting skills. They also play collaboratively with the small world and construction toys here.
We invited the Fathers' to join their children on an afternoon of fun activities. They explored a variety of learning activities inside and outside. It was a great afternoon!
We had a visit from the tadpoles and watched them change into froglets. The children enjoyed observing them swim around and grow bigger and bigger.
We had lots of fun when the chicks came to visit Early Years. The children enjoyed holding and stroking the chicks. We talked about how we can care for them and made sure we were really quiet.
The children enjoyed going on a Spring walk around our beautiful school grounds. They used their senses to explore their surroundings and made a natural colour palette.
The children had lots of fun exploring the 'Street Fleet resources' playing traffic offices and driving cars, developing an awareness of how and why these are used. They even created some of their own traffic signs.
Children worked as a team and listened to instructions whilst playing parachute games in the playground.
Easter in EYFS
The children explored lots of Easter activities including singing to an audience at St. Barnabas Church, taking part in Easter egg hunts, arts and crafts and making delicious chocolate nests!
The children listened to the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Afterwards they enjoyed acting out the story together. They explored the porridge oats and pretended to feed the three bears.
Future games visited us for a fantastic sports session. The children played lots of games and focused on the changes to their bodies during exercise. They also learned about the importance of drinking water to re-hydrate.
The children explored the different textures of natural objects in the mud kitchen. It was great fun!
The children enjoyed exploring activities to celebrate Chinese New Year together.
We have been on a wonderful Winter walk around our lovely school grounds.
The children looked at the trees and talked about what they could see. They looked at the changes to the environment.
What do you notice about the trees? How have they changed since the Autumn?
Our topic theme for this half term is; ‘Brilliant Books’.
We will be looking at a variety of different books including fiction, non-fiction, poetry and Authors and Illustrators including; Martin Waddell, Nick Sharratt and Julia Donaldson.
We would like to invite family members to come into school to read and talk about their favourite children’s story book.
We are looking forward to our 'Welly, Winter walk’ around the school grounds. We will be finding out about how the environment has changed since the Autumn.
