Foundation - Robins & Barn Owls
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.
This week has been all about Diwali and how it is celebrate throughout the world. The children explored the story of Rama and Sita and have enjoyed exploring and designing their own Mendhi and Rangoli patterns. We have linked the theme of patterns with our ongoing learning of shapes.
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.
Settling in together.
We have had a lovely first few weeks settling in together. The children have been fantastic learning all the new school routines and expectations.
We have been very proud of them all.
