Foundation Stage

Welcome to our Foundation Unit page

This term our topic is Super Special

 

 

 

On Wednesday  we had fun on balance bikes. We learnt how to make them move and stop. We can all now push off and glide! It was so much fun.

 

A MASSIVE thank you for all your donations to help Children in Need!

We helped to raise lots of money by donating pennies to Pudsey!

We had to share the loose change between lots of different bags because all the pennies you donated weighed such a lot! Thank you!

A BIG thank you to our grandparent volunteers who came to read stories to the children!

William and his Grandma shared a book together!

Scarlett’s Granddad read ‘The Princess and the Pea’ to Scarlett and her friends!

Reene enjoyed her Nannie reading to her and a group of friends in the reading area!

Ivy’s Nan-Nan read ‘The Room on the Broom’ in the Literacy room. Natasha said it was “awesome!”

Aron chose three friends to listen to his Grandma read ‘Percy the Pirate’ in the reading area!

Thank you for your generous contributions to our Harvest Festival collection for the New Hope Food Bank!

 

We really enjoyed our visit from Key Strings!

The children were mesmerised by the instruments!

Levi played the double bass very enthusiastically!

Lacey enjoyed strumming the double bass strings!

Natasha rocked out on the guitar!

 

Max had a fantastic first day in FS1 as he played the cello!

On Tuesday it was moon groups turn to visit the local shops! We took our shopping list with us and bought all the ingredients we needed to make our sandwiches later in the week. We were VERY safe, VERY sensible and VERY polite during our walk and our visit into the co-op…we were also VERY tired when we got back!

Here we are leaving school…

And here we are walking to the co-op…

Here we are in the co-op. Ava is carrying the shopping and Jonah is looking after the receipt. You can tell by the look on Ava’s face that the shopping bag is really heavy!

We saw a few familiar faces on our walk. In this photo we saw Millie’s great-granddad up a ladder on his garden fence! Millie is telling him all about the ingredients we have bought from the shops.

And here we are back at school (after the long walk up the hill!) with all the items we bought from the shop.  

Well done boys and girls for being sensible and safe on our visit to the co-op!

Sunshine group went on a walk today to visit the local shops. We took a shopping list with us and went to the co-op. The children helped to find the items on our list and then we queued up to pay for them. Some of the children helped to scan them.

 

We have settled in really well and are enjoying our new outdoor area. We have been doing lots of work about ourselves. This week we are looking at what we were like as babies. We are enjoying looking at photographs.

Look at what we did…

Easter bonnet parade

The Easter bonnets we made at home were beautiful and creative…well done everybody!

Joey won the Easter bonnet parade in the morning…

 

In the afternoon Joey and Phoebe won the Easter bonnet parade…

 

Phoebe and Miss Judson helped stand up the ears on Joey’s Easter bonnet rabbit (whilst Joey tried to get into his chocolate egg!)

Scarlett and Ellie found the special egg during the Easter egg hunt and won a chocolate egg as the prize!

Easter baking

We made chocolate cornflake buns with mini eggs on top!

First we put the bun cases on a tray…

Then we broke up the chocolate into small pieces and melted it in the microwave…

Then we added cornflakes to the melted chocolate…

And we mixed it really well until all the cornflakes were coated in the chocolate…

Then we spooned the mixture into the bun cases…

We finished the buns by putting a mini egg on top…

 

Yum, yum, yum!

Police visit

On Monday afternoon we had a visit from a police officer…

He told us that in an emergency if we need an ambulance, a fire engine or a police officer we should ring 999.

He showed us his police hat…and some of us tried it on! (PC Finley looks VERY serious!)

We also got chance to look at a police baton and police handcuffs. (Murphy tested how strong the handcuffs were by pulling on them with all his might…they were VERY strong!)

PC Matt also showed us his police jacket which he let us try on. (hello hello hello PC George and PC Rory…what do we have here then?)

We even had a shout out from another police officer on PC Matt’s police radio! (We radioed back with a LOUD hello!)

Then we went outside to have a look at the police car. We saw the flashing lights and heard the sirens! (Some of use chose to cover our ears so it didn’t make us jump!)

We were even allowed to sit inside the police car. Some of us sat in the front and some of us sat in the back! (If we were sat in the front we had to be VERY careful and make sure we did not press any of the buttons!)

Our wooden spoon book characters. Who can you see?
