Hello and welcome to our Early Years Foundation Stage. Please take a look at the above 'Introduction to Early Years' PowerPoint for lots of information regarding your child's time with us. We are so excited to start our learning journey together! 

Space! We've learned all about space and even met Time Peake who spent a long time on the International Space Station. We did lots of sentence writing about the moon and sun, made astronauts, we made chalk planet pictures, we made astronaut badges, we built the International Space Station, we made our own rockets, we had a look at our inflatable planets.... OUT OF THIS WORLD!

Yet another week of all our favourite things... Sunshine, fun and learning!!

We have met the 'Pawsome Reading Gang'! A group of furry friends who will help us to practise understanding what we read. We love reading in Class R and have so many favourite books. Reading is even more fun now that Victor, Iggy, Pip, Rex and Suki have joined us!

Well done to everyone for your efforts with home learning. We have been very impressed by the standard of work we have seen across school. Here is just a small example of what has been happening.
A lovely Christmassy week... Christmas Party... Elf Day... Christmas Lunch and lots of other Christmassy activities. We are so proud of the lovely writing the children are doing!
Busy busy busy as always!! 

Story time - The Stinky Sprouts

Miss Best reads The Stinky Sprouts by Rosie Greening... We absolutely love this book about friendship and the importance of being kind. We have created AMAZING displays from this book... Watch this space for pics!

Reading, writing, counting and creating!

It's been a wonderful writing week this week!!! Our teachers have been VERY impressed. We have been using our sounds to build words then copy them in our best handwriting. We have also been learning about what a sentence is... It needs a capital letter, a full stop and spaces between the words. Words don't like being squashed up! A sentence has to make sense too. We read a story about two brave penguins called Pip and Pop. We built a sentence ... 'I am Pip.' and wrote it in a speech bubble.
It has been a great week for number work too! Our line of number penguins got all mixed up and some of them waddled away. We rounded them up and Miss Hayton put some of them back on the washing line. We had to work out where the rest of the number penguins went. We used words like before, after, next and in between to explain why we put the numbers in a certain place on the line. We definitely rose to the challenge.
We supported 'Anti-bullying Week' with our Odd Sock Day!
