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!

Problem solving with capacity and water!

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!

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!

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.

A Letter from Jill Murphy

Date: 11th Jun 2019 @ 4:46pm

In Reception we were reading the story of 'Peace at Last' by Jill Murphy, which we created a story map of and performed for our website (see the link below!). After doing this we decided to make a sequel to the book with Mr Bear trying to have a sleep over in our school and lots of different things happening to keep him awake. When we had finished we turned this into our own book and decided to send a copy to Jill Murphy to show her how much we loved her story and how hard we had worked on our own!

Today we received a lovely parcel in the post, with a letter from Jill Murphy telling us how much she enjoyed our writing. She also included some of her books which we are very excited to read! We are very grateful to Jill Murphy for writing back to us, take a look at the letter below in the pictures!

Easter Bonnet Parade

Date: 5th Apr 2019 @ 11:09am

Another fantastic parade this year! We were really impressed with all the fantastic hats once again! It was a really difficult decision for Linda and Mrs Marshall to choose just a couple of favourites as they were all so good! A huge thanks to all the children and parents for taking part in the fun!

Healthy Wraps for Foundation Stage

The Evil Pea in Foundation Stage!

Date: 25th Mar 2019 @ 3:36pm

When we arrived this morning we found the classroom in a complete mess, and no we hadn't just been lazy on Friday. The classroom had been turned upside (literally!) by the Evil Pea. 


Today we've been making traps and posters to catch him. Remember, some vegetables are frozen for a reason.
