Welcome to Early Years
In Autumn 2 the children made some fantastic rockets as part of their home learning. we had lots of fun with glitter making our autumn pictures. We looked at fire safety and enjoyed our emersive learning area (fire station) The build up to Christmas was very exciting, the children helped to decorate the Christmas tree and made decorations for the room. We had a Christmas party with a very special visitor.
This term (Spring 1) We are welcoming all our new children and families that start this term. We have welcomed a new member of staff (Becci). Our topic is 'Walking in a Winter Wonderland'. We are looking at the colours of winter and making winter collages for our display. We are learning all about arctic animals, ice and linking this with 'frozen'. Our igloo in the emersive learning area is very popular and the children can make their own igloo with our ice blocks. We will also be celebrating Chinese New Year this half term and doing food tasting.
As part of our home learning project we asked parents if they could make a bird feeder that we could put in our garden. Look what Morgan and his Daddy made for us.
Donna, Anne, Sue and Alicia are really excited to see the children return after the summer holiday. Donna is the Early Years Teacher and Anne, Sue and Alicia are the Early Years Practitioners.
To help the children to settle back after the holiday we have used lots of popular and familiar characters such as Paw Patrol and Peppa Pig. The children are really enjoying interacting with the different characters and each other. This half-term our Learning Journey is called ‘If you go down to the woods today’. We will be learning about bears and reading the popular stories ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ and ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’.
