Term 3

 

People who help us

What a busy and exciting term 3, this term eyfs have been looking at all the different people who can help us. We had visits from both the police and fire service, we had fluffy the visitors when we looked at vets and we learnt how to keep ourselves fit and healthy when we learnt about doctors. We have been putting our phonic knowledge to good use and writing lists, captions and short sentences.

 

The children have loved putting their new knowledge of doctors to practice the role play area, checking for any injuries, taking temperatures and bandaging one and other.

 

 

The police came to visit with one of their vans. We were excited to explore the holding cell in the back, the different police hats and listen to the siren. We were excited to use this experience to solve the crime off the missing items from the classroom.

  

 

We had a visit from the fire engine which we loved climbing in and around, learning about all the different parts of the engine and meeting the fire fighters.

 

 

We have also been focusing on using our numbers to ten, finding one more and less, representing it in different ways and exploring the number bonds that make 5 or 10.

 

Well done a fantastic term 3, we are looking forward to exploring transport in term 4.

 

Term 2

What a busy term 2.

We have focused on Julia Donladson stories this term and enjoyed reading; The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom, Stickman and Zog. We started with Room on the Broom and explored Halloween, looked at the seasonal changes around us with an autumn walk and made some spooky biscuits.

 

 

We visited forest school and looked at fire safety, fireworks and shared the story Zog.

 

 

The Gruffalo was a favourite for all, we retold the story, used different materials to create characters from the story and made yummy Gruffalo crumble.

  

We have been very busy this term with learning the words, songs and actions to our nativity. The adults have been extremely impressed with how brave the children were to perform fantastically in front of such a big audience. The children have loved learning about the Christmas story and have really enjoyed learning the Makaton signs along with the songs.

 

We were also lucky to have a brand new outside area to explore. The children have loved the new water area and getting muddy in the mud kitchen. We would like to thank everyone for being so patient while all the building work was happening.

Thank you for all your on-going support this term, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 

 

Term 1

This term the children have enjoyed the topic traditional tales.

We have enjoyed reading The Three Little Pigs, The Gingerbread Man, Goldilocks and The Three Bears and The Billy Goats Gruff.

We have cooked Gingerbread man biscuits and decorated them with our favourite treats.

We enjoyed the story Goldilocks and The Three Bears and made our own porridge which we enjoyed with our special bears.

Harlie found it funny when he brought his bear in to share his porridge, ‘he fell into the porridge because he was so hungry, look at his sticky nose!’

Sophie made a perfect chair for Goldilocks to sit on.

We have retold the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff with musical instruments and created some amazing large art. Look at the goat!

We have been grouping and ordering, objects, number, colour and shape and anything else the children have discovered around the environment.

Well done for settling in so nicely, we are very proud to watch the children grow in independence especially with early morning routine.
