Please remember we do P.E on a Friday so make sure your child has their P.E kit in school for that day. If possible, keep it in school at all times during the term as in Foundation sometimes the day for P.E can change. Your child needs their team coloured top, black shorts and appropriate trainers or plimsolls.

 

 

Spring Term 1

This term we have been so busy with all of our learning in Foundation. We have learnt how to measure using cubes and tried our hand at using tape measures,  all about how you make a patterns and where you might find them, learning the story of 'The Three Little Pigs' and we have been really working hard with our Writing and Reading. Make sure you read with is lots over the half term. We can show you all the new sounds we know. 

 

We have been so busy! But don't worry we have still managed to have lots of fun. 

Chinese New Year

In Caterpillar class, we have been finding out about Chinese New Year. We learnt that this is the year of the pig. We also learnt all about why people celebrate new year and the traditions that are followed. Also, we were lucky enough to try some yummy Chinese food. We tried, spring rolls, noodles, egg fried rice and even some soy sauce.  

 

We have been learning to count. 

 

In Caterpillar class we have been learning to count to 10 and beyond. We can now count up to 20 orally and we are great at counting objects that do not move. This term, one of the things we are learning to do is to find one more and one less of a number and we are doing really well. Some of us are even able to order numbers beyond 10 now. Make sure you ask us at home and we can show you how clever we are.

We are learning the story of 'Going on a Bear Hunt' for the first few weeks to familiarise children with sequential language, repetition and rhyme in stories. We went on a bear hunt and have been counting how many bears we can find around the classroom. 

We all had fun during our Multi-cultural days. In Foundation we learnt about Australia.

Everyone had a fantastic time at our Science event last term. It was lovely to see the new children and our foundation children exploring all of the activities. A massive thank-you to the EYFS team and Stepping Stones Pre-School for organising it.

Stepping Stones Nursery children have enjoyed the chance to become familiar with our EYFS setting. Every Monday and Wednesday the children will have the opportunity to use our outside environment helping their transition to our EYFS in September.

After School Club is now running and there are still spaces.

We've loved our bear hunt. We found lots of lovely bears. Some had really good hiding places!
