AMAZING farm trip

The children were incredibly well-behaved and we had a fantastic, fun time! They really were a credit to you and the school.  Please peruse the photos.

How many piglets were there?

Can you remember the names of any of the animals in the petting area?

Egg-cellent News

The incubator arrived in school last week and we are now on the count down to school chicks arriving. The children have recorded observations of the different eggs (seven different breeds) and predicted which chick might hatch first!

We will let you know when we see signs of hatching. We have been careful to warn the children that these special eggs will only hatch if conditions are just right and we take good care of them.

If you are interested in re-homing the chicks at the end of the process, please speak to Mr Haigh.

 

 

People Who Help Us

We have been looking at the different roles of people in our community and considering how they help us e.g. postman/woman delivers our mail and parcels. We have also been helping the children to identify the equipment that these people commonly use and why.

On Friday 24th February our lollipop lady (crossing patrol officer), Debbie came in to visit the children. The children had prepared interview questions for her and listened carefully to her responses.

 

 
Test your child to see if they remember Debbie’s responses to the following:

  • Why do you wear a yellow (high-visibility) hat?
  • Do you get paid?
  • Have you ever saved someone from getting run over?
  • How many cars do you stop (in a day)?
  • Where do you keep your stop sign?
  • What do you do if it rains?
  • Who gave you the job?

 

A good catch!

This term the children will be focusing on developing key skills within Physical Development. This week we have been developing our hand eye co-ordination when throwing and catching. The children learnt the importance of looking at their partner with their feet slightly apart and their hands ready to receive the balloon. We had great fun learning to chest pass the balloons whilst trying to keep control of them! The children enjoyed using the balloons laughing throughout.

Great team work E.Y.F.S!

Diwali – Rangoli patterns

The children have loved learning about the Hindu and Sikh festival of light – exploring patterns of shape and colour and creating light and shadow crafts, linked to the story of Rama and Sita. The version that we showed them can be found through this link:

Look at the photos with your child and ask:

Which pattern did you like best? Why?

How did you make that?

What do we celebrate that is similar?
