FS Nativity

Date: 6th Dec 2019 @ 12:01pm

What a fantastic time we had performing our Natvity 'The Bossy King' for parents and family this week! Don't forget to order your DVD if you want before we finish for Christmas, they make fantastic presents!!

And we had some juice and buscuits afterwards to unwind, because we deserved it!

FS World Children's Day

Date: 21st Nov 2019 @ 4:45pm

We were very lucky to have some of our Rights Respect Ambassadors to come and teach us about our rights in FS. After talking about them with us they challenged us to draw some pictures to illustrate them. We chose to do "the right to be heard" and "the right to an education". We drew pictures of us talking to our friends or parents, and pictures of us in school (we need to practise drawing Mrs McDemott and Mr Widdowson, our arms do not come out of our legs!)


Date: 21st Nov 2019 @ 10:24am

Thanks to the £4000 grant we were awarded from winning the Tesco Bags for Help scheme, the new canopy and Reading/Writing Shed are now completed in the Foundation Stage outside area! The children have been making great use of the covered spaces, especially in this recent bad weather. 

Children in Need in FS!

Date: 15th Nov 2019 @ 12:44pm

We've had a great time making ome Pudsey Buscuits and hats in Foundation Stage! We will bring our hats home but unfortunately we ate all the buscuits, oops!

FS Autumn and Muddy Walk!

Date: 14th Nov 2019 @ 12:53pm

We had a great (if a bit cold) time on our Autumn walk! We saw loads of trees that were changing because of the time of the year and got to look at some of the birds in our area! Thank you to all the parents who came with us!

Bonfire Night Celebrations

Date: 5th Nov 2019 @ 4:17pm

Today in Foundation Stage we had our very own bonfire! We built it outside and talked about how to be safe around a real flame! We knew to not touch it or even get too close and talked about what we should wear to keep us safe! We toasted some marshmallows and had a great time.

Pumpkin Carving in FS

Date: 23rd Oct 2019 @ 5:22pm

We had a lot of fun scooping the insides of the pumpkins out and talking about how it felt in our hands! We then looked at some designs and drew a face for the teachers to cut out. Mr Widdowson's attempt was not very good!


We also made some spooky food with Mrs Bloxham. What made it spooky? The Taste!

Making funny faces! (Out of shapes!)

Date: 11th Oct 2019 @ 11:29am

We've been making some funny faces using the 2D shapes we've been learning about. We wonder if you can make any at home?

More Experiments in FS!

Date: 1st Oct 2019 @ 8:26am

This week our Science Experiment was to fill a bag with water and stick some sharp pencils through it! The children thought it would "explode" or "pop" but it actually did nothing! (until we took the pencils out!)


One of the bags did already have a little hole so it leaked through there so we are going to retry this tomorrow with a leakproof bag!

Nursery Singing for French Day!!

Baking with Mrs Bloxham!

Date: 25th Sep 2019 @ 7:32am

The children have shown a real interest in cooking and baking, so Mrs Bloxham helped them make some apple crumble (with custard!) They really enjoyed themselves and it was really tasty too!!

Stay and Play (and Read!)

Date: 24th Sep 2019 @ 5:34pm

We've had a fantastic time at Stay and Play. A huge thanks to all the parents who have come and stayed, we hope you've had fun seeing what your child gets up to in school! 

First Days in Foundation Stage

We have had a brilliant first few days in Foundation Stage (with a couple of tears!)

The children have been settling really well in to the their new classes and we are so proud of them!

Problem solving with capacity and water!

Date: 18th Jul 2019 @ 8:07am

We spent Wednesday exploring different problems using water - how could we quickly fill the different buckets, could we do it from far away, could we fill it without losing any of the water?

Looking back at our writing in Reception

Date: 16th Jul 2019 @ 9:21am

In Reception we’ve been talking about “Growth Mindset” and how we need to think positively about our work and learning. Today we decided to look back through our writing books to see how much we have improve this year. We are so proud of ourselves! If you want to come and see them as well just ask at the end of the day!

FS Get Drenched at the Beach!

Date: 10th Jul 2019 @ 8:00am

We had a great (if a bit wet) time at the beach! It was really fun walking to the sea, on the way we even saw some jelly fish! After tiring our legs out we had lunch but unfortunately it began to rain so we had to cut it a little short (and miss our ice creams) to come back.


We got our ice creams the next day!

Finishing off our Health and Well-Being with a healthy home grown snack!

Date: 28th Jun 2019 @ 12:24pm

Today we’ve been enjoying some mange tout that Mrs Bloxham has helped us grow in our outside area! They were really delicious and sweet and a fantastic treat to finish off our fantastic week!

What a fantastic morning we had in Foundation Stage! We had a brilliant time at Sports Day, everyone was brilliant and we are so proud of them for taking part (with a few tears).

After that we did some Yoga with Sarah which helped stretch and relax us! Ask us to show you the lotus pose we learned.

The most exciting day in Foundation EVER!

Date: 26th Jun 2019 @ 3:46pm

Today has been the most exciting day we've had all year in Foundation Stage! We've been on the giant inflatable obstacle course (which began to deflate as we got off!).

We got a visit from some firemen who taught us how to stay safe and let us have a ride in the fire engine AND use the hose! (Remember their challenge, ask your parents if you have a fire alarm at home!).

Then in Reception we got to practise riding and performing tricks on some scooters! Liam would like to say a huge well done to all the children but especially to Lola for making up her own trick!

Making potions and trying foods in FS

Date: 24th Jun 2019 @ 3:43pm

Today to start health and well-being week we’ve been making potions to make us feel healthy and then we tried some new (and delicious!) tasty food. Ask us which we enjoyed the most!

Keeping our teeth clean in FS

Date: 24th Jun 2019 @ 3:35pm

We were also visited by the dentist, who told us what it’s like when we visit and showed us how to clean our teeth properly!

Can you answer these questions-

How many times a day do we need to clean our teeth?

How long for?

Should we rinse with water at the end?

What size should our blob of tooth paste be?

A visit from the PCSOs!

Date: 24th Jun 2019 @ 9:37am

We were very lucky to be visited by some of our local PCSOs in Foundation Stage this morning! They’ve been teaching us all about staying safe on the roads and Stranger Danger! We learned all about how to keep ourselves and our friends safe when we are out and about.

Making Cakes in Foundation!

Date: 19th Jun 2019 @ 3:39pm
