Welcome to Early Years

Friday 9th July 2021

In celebration of England getting into the FINAL this weekend, the children have been spurring the team on by doing lots of activities - mostly of their own accord! They have been decorating their faces with England flags (like the fans in the Stadium), writing about their favourite players, making flags, singing the England song "It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming, Football's coming home!" and they even made football bracelets. Let's hope they win on Sunday...COME ON ENGLAND!!!

This week, the children had the opportunity to explore some of the areas that they will be able to access in Year One. They had the chance to play in the hall with the large P.E. equipment. They also had lots of fun on the field and have visited the lunch hall to see what is it like. They feel like very grown up children now!

This week we were excited to receive an enormous cardboard box. We quickly got to work with our ceative skills (inspired by this week's Whole Class Reading story) and transformed it into a castle. We used the puppets to act out a story about a princess and then some of us made our own paper princesses. These were all our own ideas and the grown ups were proud of how well we worked together.

Everyone is moaning about the weather, but rain doesn't stop us in EYFS! We use our outdoor space in all weathers and a highlight for us this week was when we used powder paints to explore what happens when we put it in puddles. We watched and noticed the colours blending and mixing to form new colours and it wouldn't have been a rainy day in EYFS without a bit of rainbow coloured puddle jumping!

What a lovely day we had down at the woods! EYFS enjoyed their first school trip to Highwoods Country Park. We loved riding on a double decker bus. We had fun looking for minibeasts, using our senses on a woodland walk and pond dipping! The EYFS Team were so proud of our super behaviour - we were a credit to the school!

The sun has finally arrived and we have been enjoying learning in our outside area. We have had fun practising our tricky words to help us with our writing. We have got artistic in our creative area using water colours. Some of us have used our collaborative skills to build a vehicle. We pretended we were going on a magical journey inspired by our shared text this week called Magical Pets!

Our whole class reading text this week was 'The Tiptoeing Tiger'. We painted some sleek, silent and totally terrifying tigers. We have become rather good at using ten frames to explore number and explain our mathematical reasoning. Despite the weather we managed to get outside to our Forest School sessions where we reminisced about setting our butterflies free. We looked at natural objects and found similar pairs to create a symmetrical butterfly collage.

In Early Years we were excited to receive a very special delivery of 3 pots of caterpillars straight after the Easter break. We watched them grow and change for about 2 weeks and were amazed at how huge the caterpillars became. One day we noticed that lots of them were starting to hang upside down from the lid and we realised that they were getting ready to shed their final skin and they went into their chrysalis.  We eagerly awaited their appearance again and were very excited on Monday morning to find that they had begun to emerge as beautiful butterflies. We have studied them, fed them fruit and have loved watching this amazing process. Yesterday it was finally time to say our goodbyes. We took them outside, helped to give them the courage to fly away and we all said a little wish for our butterflies as they went off into the big wide world. Good luck little butterflies, we will miss you!Friday 7th May 2021

This week we have been inspired by the story of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. The children have found lots of creative ways to respond including writing shopping lists, preparing a fruit salad for all to enjoy. We also continued with our minibeast yoga sessions where we had to follow instructions and use our bodies to tell a story.  In our Maths work we have been looking at rotation of 2d and 3d shapes.

In Early Years we are currently learning about Minibeasts. We have explored their habitats in Forest School time and have learned how to be Story Tellers using Pie Corbett story telling actions and story maps. We have enjoyed some Minibeast Yoga sessions and have used our creative skills to create our own minibeast in a variety of media. Each class had an exciting delivery of caterpillars. We are using our observational skills to watch how they grow and change.
