Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which is how the Government and early years professionals describe the time in your child's life between birth and age 5.
The Parents's Guide link below will help answer many of your questions and help you through your child's future learning and successes.
19/3/18 A Snowy Woodland Wellie Walk
To make the most of the snow while it was here we decided to go on a snowy walk in the school woods. We looked at our footprints in the snow, thought about how different the wood looked with the snow there and the children even took their own photos with their own camera.
World Book Day 2018!
Look at our wonderful costumes!
We're Going on a Gruffalo Hunt!
Today we went on a Gruffalo walk in the woods. We found all the different characters from the book and then made a collage of the Gruffalo out of lots of natural things we had collected and found in the woods.
Thank you to all the parents who joined us for our walk, we hope you enjoyed it!
Christmas Party! 18/12/17
Today we had some helpers from The Cavendish School. They helped us make lots of different Christmas crafts. We used lots of our creative and fine motor skills.
Woodland Story Time
We went into the school woods to read our Story of the Week; Stick Man. We all sat on the logs in a circle, listening to the story and discussing what was going to happen. We then collected lots of interesting leaves and sticks for the activities we are going to do in Nursery that link to Stick Man.
Today we went on a woodland walk through our school woods. We used our listening ears to hear all the different sounds around us and our eyes to see the different natural things. We heard the leaves crunching and rustling on the ground and saw them fall from the trees because it's now Autumn. We hope to use the woods lots more to help our learning in the future.
Pirate Week 3rd July 2017
Sports Week 26th June 2017
We decided to find out how flowers take in water. We put some cut flowers in a bottle of water with some blue food colouring and waited to see what would happen. The next day the flowers had started to go blue. Some children thought that someone had painted them! We put the end of a piece of kitchen towel into the blue water and watched to see what would happen. The blue colour started to spread up the paper towel making it blue, just like the flowers.
