This week in Foundation Stage we have been looking at Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The children enjoyed reading and acting out the story as well as pretending to be Goldilocks and writing sorry letters to the Three Bears. They even got to make and taste porridge, which was very yummy!!
Today the children in Foundation Stage enjoyed an outdoor day linked to our Traditional Tales topic. The children worked in groups to make a shelter for the three little pigs, cook something for Grandma in the mud kitchen and also toasting marshmallows on the camp fire! A great time was had by all!
This week we have been looking at the story of The Gingerbread Man. The children have enjoyed reading and acting out the story.
The children were set a challenge to build a raft for the Gingerbread Man to help him cross the river. They worked in small groups to create their rafts before testing them out in the water tray!! To end the week, we baked and decorated our own Gingerbread Men, they tasted very yummy!
This half term in Foundation Stage our topic is Traditional Tales. We started the topic by looking at the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff this week.
The children were very excited to read and act out the story using character masks! We also had a 'challenge afternoon', where we worked in teams, using lots of different materials to build bridges for the goats to cross.
This week in Foundation Stage we have been learning about Chinese New Year. We went on a trail around school, following clues to help us find out that it is the year of the pig this year! We have enjoyed exploring how Chinese New Year is celebrated. We particularly enjoyed learning about dragon dancing, making chinese lanterns and tasting some chinese food!
This week we have enjoyed some space-themed baking! We worked in small groups to bake moon rock cakes. We had to carefully follow the recipe, weighing out the ingredients and using our hands to mix everything together- which we found very exciting! After we had baked the cakes, we had a picnic where we got to eat our yummy creations!
This week we have continued to learn about space. We have enjoyed working in small groups to create our own 'egg astronauts' to send to the moon. We worked well as a team to build rockets, thinking carefully about the best materials to use to keep our astronauts safe. We had lots of fun launching our rockets in the playground!
Today we had a technology afternoon in Foundation Stage. The children enjoyed exploring the Beebots, they worked in small groups taking it in turns to programme the Beebots to move around the carpet area in different directions. The children also got the chance to explore a 4D Jungle Animals app. They placed the iPad over the different animals and watched them come to life!
Today the children were very excited to explore the fire circle to link in with their learning about Bonfire Night and fire safety. They worked in small groups to collect 'snappy sticks' from around the school grounds. After watching the fire and making sure we had safely put it out, the children enjoyed reading stories about nocturnal animals.
Today the children took part in their first science time. They were excited to try the 'skittles experiment'. The children predicted what they thought would happen when they added water to the skittles. They then tested their ideas by adding water and observing the changes that took place.
This week the children enjoyed taking part in their first outdoor day. They explored the mud kitchen making food for hedgehogs, as well as working in small groups to create natural pictures. The children also spent time in the Hive where the did some conker rolling, created a leaf hedgehog and ordered pumpkins!
