Our trip to Tam O’Shanter Farm and Eastham Country Park!

On Wednesday we went on our first whole class trip! The children had a lovely day, as well as the adults. The children were so excited to go on the school mini buses to the farm. We saw and fed goats and chickens when we arrived – we also saw pigs, turkeys and alpacas! The children enjoyed eating their packed lunches at the farm, and they loved playing on the tractors and slide! Next stop was Eastham Country Park. Here the children loved playing amongst the leaves, climbing the trees and logs and also enjoying some snack before it was home time! Can your child tell you about their favourite part of the day?

Marvellous instructing days !

Reception

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

 

Nursery

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 .

Phonics Stay and Play

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.

Our new hammock

After enjoying the experience of swinging on a hammock on Friday afternoon the children were still talking about how fun it was this morning.

During outdoor play today a number of children talked about how the swings at the park move the same way. Following the children’s interests and using our forest school knowledge (and our own childhood memories) we created a swing for the children. The swing was made using rope and a very clever knot from the oak tree in our outdoor garden. The children helped measure the rope, thread it through the plank of wood we had and agreed on their own rules about keeping themselves safe whilst on the swing. It was then decided by the children themselves that it would be fair to use a sand timer so “everyone can have a fair turn of the swing”. The children waited patiently for their turn of the swing. A fun morning of Personal Social and Emotional Development as well as Physical Development and risk assessing for themselves.

Am sure the new addition of a swing into our garden will generate hours of fun!

Woodwork outdoors

We have been developing our physical development skills lately using hacksaws, hammers and screwdrivers on our woodwork bench outdoors. The children have demonstrated excellent listening skills in regards to safety and agreeing on rules needed to keep us safe. They are also using their imaginative skills creating models and talking about their designs.

Building a bridge of books project

Over the last six weeks we have ran a project in partnership with Liverpool EYFS school improvement to foster a love of books with children and parents. Each week parents and their children have attended workshops hosted in school exploring and making different books together. They have created step rise books and collaged their favourite foods. For world book day we created a book about our favourite stories. A book about our families, a story box and we have even explored story telling through story sticks!

Many thanks to the parents for their participation. The children have thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and have made lovely books, story boxes and sticks to share at home.

A huge thank you to parents and pupils for making the project such fun!
