In the Foundation Stage and 2s Can we follow the Early Years curriculum. Through play, our children explore and develop learning experiences, which help them make sense of the world around them. They have the opportunity to think creatively alongside others as well as on their own. They communicate with others as they investigate and solve problems. We deliver opportunities for exploration of all 7 areas of learning through purposeful play, with a balance of adult-led, adult-initiated and child-initiated activities. This is supported by offering a range of real life experiences through educational visits and visitors in school.
The Road Safety team have been to see us this week. We learnt how important it is to stay safe near and on the roads. We now know how to cross the road safely.
This week we have been learning about Halloween. We have enjoyed looking at pumpkins, making potions and using playdough to make spiders.
This week, we have had ‘Moving Words’ visit us in school. We enjoyed learning a new poem and dance.
This week we have been learning about Bonfire Night. We have enjoyed creating fireworks, making a bonfire and singing songs. We also learnt about how to keep same around a bonfire and fireworks.
We have started to think about Christmas and so we went on the minibus to visit Tong Garden Centre. Whilst we were there, we looked at the Christmas lights and decorations. Mrs Hall bought some baubles for her tree and we have started practising our Nativity.
