School will finish on Friday 21st July at 2:00pm

Our new topic is   ‘Where does snow go?”

We have been exploring winter colours, using white paint to make our blue paint lighter. Take a look at our winter display.

 

Following on from our winter theme we read the story of ‘The Snowman’ and created a wonderful collage of pictures from our favourite part of the story

 

We would like to say a huge thank you, to all the grown-ups for helping your child to create a fantastic snowman picture of themselves. Please feel free to take a look at our art gallery display in our foundation 1 unit.

 

We have been exploring textures with playdough, using this to help us with our counting to ten.

 

The children have loved our arctic animal small world and have been engaging in imaginative role play retelling the story of ‘The Little Polar Bear’

 

In our mathematics area we have been using the arctic animals to help us with our number recognition and trying to match the correct amount of objects to the numbers we recognise.

 

During circle time our children came up with different ideas of what we could change our role play area in to. After reading the book ‘Polar Bear, Polar Bear what do you hear?’ we all decided on changing the role paly area in to a zoo.

Having fun in the snow 

Stay and Play Session

The Woodland Team would like to say a massive thankyou to all the parents/ carers/ grandparents that attended the ‘Stay and Play’ session. As part of our new topic the children had to create a model of themselves using various materials. The day was a great success and we are all looking forward to the next session.

The Stay and Play Session 

Tree

The staff are REALLY proud of the children. They worked with their grown ups to find different autumn leaves that we have been talking about.

Elmer

For our topic we have been exploring colours and how they change. The children enjoyed reading different Elmer stories and looking at the different colours. They were able to use scissors and glue sticks to create a scene from Elmer and the weather.

 

Ourselves

To get to know everyone the children created a self-portraits. These took three days to create. The children started by using their paintbrush skills and practised mixing colours. Then they looked at shapes and finally they paid attention to detail. We are really happy with the final result.

Well done FS1

 

Walk to the woods

The children have loved exploring our school woods and identifying the changes in the environment. It was great fun looking for different coloured leaves and finding different shapes. We were able to back to class and draw our favourite leaves.

Ask your children to retell the story ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ written by Michael Rosen.
