Welcome to the Wonderful World of Class R!

We wanted to send you a personal welcome to our Shakespeare family from the EYFS staff and children in Classes RH and RT.

We have received our cohort list and we are really looking forward to meeting, and getting to know our new little lovelies and their wonderful families. Our current Reception class children are also so excited to meet the new boys and girls and help them to settle in when they get here.

Lots of love, 

The Class R Team and children  x x x

Congratulations to all the boys and their Dads for competing in our Shakey heroes Competition! We had so much fun and the families really enjoyed the activity bags they took home each week!

The Perfect Fit - Naomi and James Jones

The Perfect Fit is the debut children's book by husband and wife team, Naomi and James. They met whilst working at the same Publisher in London and now live in Cornwall with their two boys and a very springy springer spaniel.

We explored shapes with a book called 'The Perfect Fit' and we were incredible at telling the time!!

Mrs Dowson's Farm Park... THE best school trip EVER!! 🐮🐷🐰🫎🦬 The sun shone, the animals were gentle, the ice cream was delicious and we learned so many new things!!

Another week, another beanstalk!! This time cheeky Jack climbed up into the clouds and ventured into the Giant's castle!

Jaspers Beanstalk by Nick Butterworth & Mick Inkpen Read Aloud

jaspersbeanstalk #booksreadaloud #storytime Read along with me.

We bounced right back into the last half term in Class R with Jasper and his beanstalk, some sharing in Maths and some team games!!

Two visitors in one day! Mrs Warburton from the RNLI and beautiful Ladies, Miss Hickson and Dottie Rey! As part of our learning about growth and change, Miss HIckson told us all about how to look after Dottie and we talked about things that we can do that Dottie can't do just yet.

We really enjoyed visiting Reverend Carolyn at St. Nicholas' Church! The teachers were so proud of the children and how polite and respectful they were. We completed a checklist of the features of a church and made loop crosses and stained glass windows.

The Hungry Caterpillar!🐛🧁🍦🍩🍈🍓🍑🍐🍓🦋

A week of design and constriction this week! Keeping everyone safe from water was the aim! From the gingerbread man to Noah's animals in his ark!

Another busy week in EYFS!

We have been very busy bees again this week! We have been visited by Harold the Giraffe from the Life Education Centre, learned about the life cycle of a frog, composed our own music, explored place value and so much more!

Another busy week in EYFS... Celebrating Shakespeare Day by finding out about William, making ink pots and quills and drawing portraits of him! We read a book called 'The Dot' which inspired us to be creative with dots and different media and techniques. We learned about another famous historical figure, Vincent Van Gogh. We found out about his life and where he came from. We used our geographical skills and map skills see how Fleetwood is the same and different to the Netherlands. We watched a film of the pop up exhibition of Van Gogh's art work and it was amazing. We looked at some of his paintings and our favourite was 'Sunflowers' and 'Starry Night' We were inspired to draw our own sunflowers and we were proud of our careful drawing!
