Welcome to Early Years!

Friday 18th November

Pudsey fever has reigned over EYFS this week! The children were so excited to learn that Friday would be Pudsey's birthday we were going to hold a party for him. The children were full of motivation and enthusiasm all week to get ready for the party. They shared their ideas and decided that they needed to make cards, hats and bunting. They wrapped presents for him and made playdough cakes, complete with candles. The children also made invitations for each other. In all this excitement they were also practising using their writing skills and using mathematical language. When everything was ready, everyone enjoyed a fabulous party and there was even a visit from Pudsey himself!

Another busy week in Early Years saw the children enjoying a wide range of activites and learning opportunities. We were very proud of how sensibly the children sat for our two minute silence for Armistice Day. We thought about how many people have helped to create the peaceful country we liive in today. The children then got creative and made some beautiful poppies in a variety of ways. In Maths this week we have learnt lots of positional language and the children had fun creating their own obstacle course to go over and through!  Some of the children have had some runny noses and coughs this week so there were lots of discussions about the importance of washing hands. To investigate this further, we set up a science experiment to see what happens to bread when it has been touched by dirty hands. The children enthusiastically made their predictions and we will wait and see....!

Friday 4th November

This week we talked lots about celebrations. We learnt about the Hindu festival of Divali and had lots of fun dressing up and acting out the story of Rama and Sita, learning to do some bhangra dancing and making Indian palaces out of junk modelling materials. We used chalks to make some rangoli patterns on the floor outside the classroom doors to welcome in Divali.  On Friday we learned about why we celebrate Guy Fawkes night with fireworks. We made some edible 'sparklers' with breadsticks and sprinkles. Then we gathered around a pretend fire in the forest area, waved our sparklers and sang a bonfire song, before enjoying our sweet treats! This week we also had lots of fun helping to maintain our outside area. We helped wash out our water troughs and then put our wellies on to jump in the bubbly puddles!

What an exciting end to our first term at school The children got in the Hallowe'en mood by mixing potions and making up spells, investigating pumpkins and making life-size skeletons! They even carefully learnt to use some real tools to carve pepper lanterns all reayd for a glowing tea light. The week ended with a crazy scary hair day and watching Room on the Broom., joining in with the repetitive story language,

The children continue to be busy developing their confidence in exploring their learning environment. During Child Initiated learning time, they have three classrooms and our wonderful outside area to explore. We have been so pleased to observe friendships developing across the classes! Here are some pictures which give a taste of what another busy week it has been in EYFS!

 

 

 

Friday 7th October

This week we have continued to explore our wonderful learning environment, both inside and outside. We have become confident to explore in all three classrooms and discover the variety of activities each one offers. Some of us were inspired by our phonics learning, to make igloos....igloo begins with 'i'! We were very excited when year 4 came to read books with us. We really enjoyed getting to know some older children and talking about our favourite stories.
