Term 4 Everything Grows

This term our topic is "Everything grows"  and to support the children's learning they had a wonderful day out at Woolley Firs Environmental Education Centre last week. They had a full day of activities including hunting for mini beasts in the woods, sorting them into the numbers of legs, listening to mini beast poems in Hedgehog Hollow, and decorating a dragonfly with things from nature on Ladybird Lawn. They particularly enjoyed Nature Bingo walking around the farm, the orchard and the pond areas. Pond dipping for water mini beasts was very exciting and many of the children were able to identify the creatures on charts. The children all loved their picnic lunches and we were all very proud of them. Our thanks go to Lynn and Claire from BBOWT again for another amazing day.

Term 3 Healthy Living


A healthy start to the Year!


This term the children are learning about Healthy Living. They are looking at healthy eating, healthy bodies, keeping clean and healthy minds. They will be thinking about what they already do and what they would like to try to help make themselves healthier. Last week they had a very exciting time investigating healthy foods. They looked at a selection of real vegetables which they used to make models and create patterns and we read the story of Supertato and his arch nemesis Evil Pea!

After learning about the importance of eating breakfast they used their creative skills to design their own tasty toppings for toast, which they tried out and ate in class.  There were some very interesting combinations! We look forward to hearing about what they have eaten for breakfast each day when they bring back their healthy breakfast charts. Finally there was much excitement when they were encouraged to try something new from a rainbow of fruits!

During the rest of the term they will be looking at different sports they can try and the effect of exercise on their bodies, the importance of keeping clean with particular reference to looking after teeth and in line with Children's mental health week, they will learn about how to keep their minds healthy!

A very busy and exciting term!


This term we are looking at traditions and rhymes and in particular traditional tales in the first few weeks. This includes The 3 Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, The 3 Billy Goats Gruff and The Gingerbread Man. We are reading them, singing them, acting out and retelling the stories as well as testing out creative skills in support of each tale. We are also focusing on the importance of Nursery Rhymes by saying lots of them together in class. Why not read a new one each day at home with your child? 

Autumn 2023

A very warm welcome to all the new children and their families who have joined Foundation Stage this year. We are looking forward to an exciting year with them. As they begin to settle into their new routines, we are pleased to see that they are becoming more confident and resilient in the classroom.

This term we will be learning about "Ourselves" and looking at the similarities and differences between us all. We shall also be starting to learn some phonics and considering the mathematical concepts of matching and sorting.

Keep an eye out for this blog where we shall post photos of their activities from time to time!
