Yesterday we went on a fantastic walk to the woods to record footage for our EYFS project. Here are some action shots from just a handful of footage from the walk. Once again, thank you to all the parents and carers who came along!
The EYFS went to Thorne Community Woods this morning. We explored the surroundings, looking at the different trees, leaves and features of our local area. We took some video and photographic footage for our celebration event at the end of our theme.
Unfortunately we didn’t find a Gruffalo today but we had a great morning out in the local area, exploring the squelchy mud, fresh morning air and brisk walk down to the orchard.
Thanks to all the parents and carers who were able to support our local walk this morning – we appreciate your continued support!
This week in our literacy lessons the children have been getting better at retelling the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ in sequence. Some of the children chose to retell by using drama and narrative and were very creative with their costumes!
The children were challenged to sort objects by size this week finding small and large objects in their learning environment. The children were using the language of size in their talking and were challenged to be specific in their descriptions. Can you find something bigger than you? Send in a picture to the Nursery Team and gain an extra ball for the reward rocket!
This week in Nursery our new Learning Alien that visited was Exploring Eddie. Here are some of the nursery children exploring using their senses. The children were challenged to use new words and discuss what they liked and disliked.
Thank you to everyone who completed the Ten Day Active Challenge – keep active and arriving at school on time!
Most children in nursery went on their very first school trip to Sundown Adventure Land this week. The rain didn’t stop us bringing the stories from our theme learning alive and from filming for our learning exploration DVD!!
