Days in Reception were pretty fun. We instructed the children to write correct words using the alphabet map , which was useful, we helped them to build some Lego and at the end of the day we were chilling on the I-pads and the little ones were quiet and left us alone
Days in Nursery were really funny. Nasser (my friend ) had a friend in a minute, he used to like him, he would only hug Nasser and I had fun helping the little kids on the things they were playing with . Tariq and me were on the camera taking photos of the little kids and the kid hugging Nasser .

Nuresry have been very busy the past 2 weeks exploring the story Jack and the Beanstalk. They have used story mapping to retell their own version of the story as well as producing one as a whole class. They have planted their own bean seeds and are currently observing their growth. We have had lots of discussion around what seeds need to grow. We have also collaged our own magic beans as well as using our imaginations to act out the role of the characters in the story using puppets. As we have been talking about size for maths we also made some giant feet to compare to the size of our own. The children have had lots of fun wearing the giant cut out feet!
A huge thank you to all the parents who stayed for our phonics Stay and Play session. It was great to deliver a short presentation to parents about the progression of phonics within our EYFS and how important it is building upon their early reading and writing skills.
We then had lots of fun in the school hall exploring a variety of activities that develop children’s phonological awareness.
The children have been making the most of the sunshine with more choosing to stay outdoors. This week we have focused on our whittling skills and toasting independently at the fire circle.
Nursery have thoroughly enjoyed exploring the whole school text Grendel. They have participated in some fantastic speaking and listening activities. We have talked to our partners about what we would wish for if we could make a wish. We then in small groups drew, made marks and written with the help of phonic mats what we would wish for.
Surprisingly most of the children wished for Ice Cream! The children received a special surprise from Grendel and had to guess wag it may be. They were delighted to find it was Ice cream, cones and strawberry sauce!
We followed instructions and used our motor skills to scoop our own ice creams. We have also explored PSED through the story and concluded that it was wrong of Grendel to snatch from his mum and he shouldn’t have wished for everything that he touched to turn to chocolate.
We also made our own chocolate playdoh for Grendel. Again, following instructions and developing our understanding and listening skills.
The children have really enjoyed their weekly PE sessions this term with Mr Lancaster.
They have been developing their listening skills and understanding as well as building upon their moving and handling skills.
They have taken part in opportunities to move freely and with confidence in a variety of ways such as running, jumping, sliding and hopping and running skillfully negotiating the space around them in different directions. They have also explored different ball games.
The children have been working hard this week in Maths. We have been comparing two groups of objects saying when we have the same number. We are also working on separating a group of three or four objects in different ways.
A fantastic effort from our superstars in EYFS who participated in a giant caterpillar conga around the school grounds.
Thankyou to all for your contributions. All donations have been sent to Action for Children.
A huge thank you to all the parents that stayed to play with their child last Tuesday. The children really enjoy showing their parents the things they like to do in their learning environment.
