    To celebrate World Book Day, we got into costume, dressing-up as our favourite storybook characters - a huge thank you to everyone who helped make us look so amazing!

  • Another busy term!
    We have had a super-busy few weeks! This half-term we have been to the theatre to see Dear Zoo (it was fab and we loved all the animals), watched our chicks hatch from eggs in our classroom (very cute), have been on a Spring Walk to Fairlands Park (the sun came out - yey!) and celebrated World Book Day with some awesome costumes (check the back page). We even squeezed a Stay and Play session in there too - phew! Below are a few pictures to give you a little taste of all that we have been up to...

  • Christmas!
    It was a busy half-term for us building up towards Christmas! We started off the celebrations by decorating the huge tree in the big hall with our own personalised baubles, before decorating trees in our own classrooms. We came into school at the beginning of December to find a letter from Santa and a cheeky Elf sitting up on the shelf! Nursery voted to call their Elf Zippy and Reception class called theirs Jack. The elves have been busy reporting back to Santa about our behaviour - but have also been getting up to mischief every night, and we have really enjoyed coming in every day to find out what the elves have been up to! We also had a visit from Santa, who bought us an early Christmas present, and in the last week before Christmas we had parties, with lots of dancing and games, as well as a lovely Christmas dinner with crackers and hats! We also had an amazing Christmas Craft morning and were delighted that so many of our family members were able to come and join us.

  • Tapestry
    We have absolutely loved sharing our Tapestry journals this half term! It has helped develop our speaking, listening and communication skills. In class, many of us have been really excited to share what our parents have been putting online, and this has also helped our development. We also enjoy talking to our friends about what has been put online via the app and this has helped develop and strengthen friendships and connect us through common interests and experiences.

    If you still haven’t been able to activate your Tapestry account, please ensure you talk to your child's teacher as you can see their learning everyday and get important notices and reminders regarding what is going on in Foundation Stage.

What we've learnt about this term:x

  • Own Learning
    As always, throughout the term we have had the chance to try out a huge range of activities linked to learning, our own individual interests and our focus story –The Little Red Hen. We have also had lots of fun playing with our Pirate Ship role-play area and creating our own pirate adventures. As a result, we have continued to develop our use of language, which has enabled us to engage with our environment, make friends and improve our speaking and listening skills.

    We always look forward to finding out what new activities and challenges have appeared in our classrooms each day and are also keen to find new ways to explore, use and play with the equipment and resources around us. We have picked out a few of our favourite moments from this half-term to share with you on these pages...

x

Communication & Language:
Throughout the term, we will be learning to be good listeners, developing our ability to use spoken language to share our feelings, ideas and experiences. We will be encouraged to speak in full sentences throughout the day, making sure that we use the right tense (past, present or future) and sensible vocabulary.

We will also be broadening our vocabulary through stories, asking and answering questions about the texts we have met and trying to use 'because' and 'and' to link ideas.

Literacy:
Our class story for the next half-term will be The Gingerbread Man. We will begin by learning the story by heart, supported by actions, so that we can use its structure and language in our play. We will begin to learn about the way that stories are put together, describing the main settings, events and characters, and will work hard to ensure we can hear and say the initial sounds in words. We will also be practicing making a wider range of identifiable letter shapes.

Maths:
Over the next half-term we will be securing our knowledge of numbers, learning to count in sequence to 10 and recognise numerals to 10. We will also be working on finding the total amount in two groups by counting all of them, and starting to use different words for this process (like add, together and total). We will also continue to develop our knowledge of 2d and 3d shapes, using correct names whenever we talk about shapes. As always, we will be singing lots of counting songs to support our learning, including 5 Little Men In A Flying Saucer, 5 Currant Buns, 5 Speckled Frogs and 1,2,3,4,5, Once I Caught A Fish Alive.

Personal, Social & Emotional Learning
We will make sure that we are talking to our friends whilst playing, always using kind words and kind hands and trying to develop relationships. We will be encouraged to add storylines and narratives in our play, and to share these ideas with others so that we can all take part in the same story or adventure.

Understanding the World
We will be using the ipads and laptops every week to develop our understanding of technology and learn about different ways in which we can interact with programs.

We will also be looking at lots of different types of animals and the places they live, both in stories and in the real world. Throughout the term, we will be observing the natural world around us, describing what we see and starting to question why things might happen. We will talk about the way our environment changes and how this is linked to the changing weather and seasons.
