People who help us.
Since returning after Easter the children have been learning all about people who help us. From people near to us to people far away. The children have loved learning about different jobs and creating their own fact files.
We had a great afternoon when the police came in and seeing Poppy the rescue dog perform. We will be having a visit from the Vets next week.

The children had a great time watching the Pantomime last week and loved joining in with all the singing and dancing.


We have spent this week reading stories about Dragons, decorating our class dragons, making dragon puppets and using descriptive words to describe different types of dragons. This will lead us nicely into celebrating Chinese New Year the week after next.

We have had a fantastic couple of weeks since returning after the half term. We started the week looking at Eric Carle books and paying particular attention to the fantastic artwork that the books contained. In Continuous Provision the children spent the week working in different ways and mediums. This enabled us to create some brilliant artwork inspired by Eric Carle’s books. The children also looked at some famous artists and copied their style/method of working.

Forest school also started and the children are having a great time exploring the environmental area and creating some transient artwork inspired by Andy Goldsworthy.

We have had a fantastic few weeks in Foundation Stage. The children have started learning their letter sounds in phonics and it has been great to see them recognising these letters in the environment.  
Lots of the children came back this week excited about seeing the circus at the weekend so we decided to create our own circus. The children have loved making up performances and putting on their very own shows. We have seen some fantastic singing and musician’s galore.
