Look at what Morgan’s class have been doing this week!

The children have settled lovely into class and have enjoyed engaging in all our activities including buttering bread, exploring shaving foam and learning capacity through filling and emptying using different mediums.

We loved exploring the light up cubes and toys in class and learning new skills like balancing, climbing and riding the bikes and scooters available outside.

We have begun learning some basic Makaton signs that relate to our topic –‘All about my school’ and have enjoyed reading our class story ‘Spot goes to school’, and singing rhymes as a class and one to one. 

The children are building some great relationships with one another and the staff in class. 

Explorer of the week

Well done to our explorers this week!

Look at what Hanna’s class have been doing this week!

Wow! What an amazing first week Hanna’s class have had. It has been lovely welcoming the children back to school. We are so proud at how well the children have settled in and it is great to see them enjoying their new school rotuine. We have had lots of fun exploring our new classroom. Bubbles are a favourite of ours, as you can see in our beautiful photos. This week the children have been enjoying our focus stories, Brown Bear and Stop Elephant Stop! We love circle time with the parachute and rope. The children also enjoy spending time outside practising their physical and gross motor skills. We look forward to a wonderful year.

Discovery Blog- 22.05.23

Look at what Kirsty’s class have been doing this week!

Nursery children visited Newham Grange farm, they were all excited for the trip. First, we explored the discovery barn, we saw a sleeping big pig, a pony, baby lambs and guinea pigs called Lily and fudge. The lambs were just as excited to see the children as they were them, we fed them some food and stroked their soft fur. The children’s favourite part of the day was definitely seeing the guinea pigs and rabbits. We then went for a walk around the farm where we saw lots of bigger animals, the children recognised cows, horses, ducks, chickens and lamas. The children had lots of fun listening to the different animal sounds as they explored and enjoyed copying them, it was lovely to see they recognised so many animals.

All the excitement made the children hungry, we had our own room to sit and relax and eat lunch. After lunch the children went to play at the park, playing on the swings, slide and climbing frame.

The farm trip ends our topic this term of animals, the children have enjoyed making animals, completing animal themed maths & literacy activities and animal yoga.

Discovery Blog – 15/05/2023

Look at what Lara’s class have been doing this week!

In literacy this term we have been reading the book ‘The Enormous Turnip’. The children have enjoyed sequencing the story using props and have acted out the story in class. They did a fantastic performance of the story in the whole school assembly. It was amazing!

We have also done a lot of baking this term and we recently baked and decorated cakes for our classroom picnic as part of our mindfulness week.

We enjoyed exploring the nature around us during our walk at natures world as part of walk to school week.

In Music we have enjoyed playing a variety of instruments. We have followed along with familiar songs and rhymes and have explored playing our instruments in a range of different ways.

Look at what Hanna’s class have been doing this week!

Hanna’s class have had a lovely week enjoying lots of outdoor play which they thoroughly enjoy! They love exploring the water tray outside, practising a range of physical and mathematical skills including filling and emptying. We have also done some lovely spring art, decorating sheep for our spring display. As well as this, we have enjoyed a range of mark making activities in dry and wet textures. On Thursday, we participated in our cooking session. This week we made mini pizzas using shortcrust pastry. The children enjoyed helping to cut the pastry into circles, then spread tomato puree and cheese on top. They enjoyed exploring them once cooked. Some of us ate some and some smelt or licked to tops of their pizza which was absolutely amazing!! Well done to all the children in Hanna’s class for your fantastic work this week. We’re all very proud of your achievements.
