- About Us
It is crazy to think we have had 9 days in school already. The EYFS team have been amazed at how well the children have settled in. Friendships are starting to flourish and the imaginative play is fascinating to watch. This week we have started to begin our teaching and the children have a good understanding of their expectations in the unit.
We have also introduced some new areas in the unit so the children have been busy exploring. We have a fantastic lesson prepared for tomorrow afternoon, so stay tuned for an update!
We have been learning all about dinosaurs this week! We received a letter from a dinosaur expert who needed our help. We had to look at some dinosaur poo and decide what kind of diet the dinosaur had. Was the dinosaur a carnivore, herbivore or an omnivore? Have a look and see if you can decide...
What an exciting time it was to learn all about dinosaurs. The children really enjoyed it, they even took their learning outside to draw some beautiful pictures of dinosaurs. Some children also created their very own dinosaur land.
As the children prepare for their next transition in school we had one fantastic idea from a pupil. Cameron went home over the weekend and decided he would like to meet the Nursery children to help prepare them for the jump into Reception. Cameron wanted to give the children an insight into school life and what they can expect in Reception. On Tuesday. Cameron spoke to a large group of Nursery children and it was inspirational. Cameron discussed what they children will learn, how cool the teaching staff are and why there is no reason to be scared. It is very rare children of this age are willing to go out of their comfort zone to deliver their opinion. We feel that Cameron needs to be recognised for his conscientious attitude and we are all proud!
Well done Cameron!
This week we have been talking about moving on up to Year 1. We have been preparing ourselves for the next academic year by discussing what we are looking forward to and what we are worried about. We have been challenging ourselves in lessons and finding new ways to use the skills we have learnt throughout the year. We have completed lots of maths investigations including ordering objects by height and measuring how tall objects are using cubes and blocks. In phonics we have been challenging ourselves to write in different ways. We enjoy using the computers to write sentences and lists, as well as practicing reading with our friends.
As the summer term seems to be flying by the children have had new areas to access in the outside area. The biggest change has seen the arrival of a Boeing 737 which has been taking children around the globe for the last week. We were lucky enough for Jet2 to send us lots of goodies which has allowed the children to flourish in their play.
The plane will be here for the summer term so hopefully we all get the chance for a week away in the sun.
With our Minibeast topic in full swing we also have a Bug Hotel. This is a luxurious place for bugs to create a home. The children, armed with magnified glass and catchers have been searching for all kinds of creatures as they look to examine the build up of each Mnibeast.
