This week, Saplings have been focusing on the numbers 6,7 and 8. We have learnt how to recognise 6,7 and 8 in different forms and then progressed on partitioning these numbers.
EYFS had a nice surprise when Santa came to visit them. They were all on the nice list and were given a present each!
The children and staff both enjoyed their Santa visit at Stockeld Park!
We enjoyed our festive trip to Stockeld Park to visit Santa!
Saplings were very excited to host their first bake sale!
Amazing writing in EYFS this week as we begin our learning around Remembrance day.
Saplings used black and red icing to decorate biscuits in the form of poppies to celebrating Remembrance Day.
We used biscuits and icing to practise writing the letter ‘A’.
We have been learning about the numbers 1, 2 and 3 and how the numbers increase and get bigger.
We have been taking part in some Role Play by hiding and showing our emotions of how we would feel in the war.
Saplings enjoyed their Halloween Party, it was a lovely way to finish off this half term.
This week, Saplings ventured up to the computer suite for their first computing session. The children were shocked by the mouse and automatically thought the screen was a touch screen.
A huge thank you to all our grandparents who spent the afternoon in early years for National Grandparent Day.
Saplings used natural materials such as leaves, twigs, grass and pebbles to make clay faces.
Saplings have loved doing dough disco this week. The actions and play dough strengthen the muscles in our fingers to help with our letter formation and writing.
Our topic this term is ‘All about me’. As part of this topic, children need to identify different features of their face. We made play dough faces and used different materials to represent different features.
Our new starters enjoyed an outdoor session in our Forest School where they toasted marshmallows to make a Smore. This was the perfect opportunity for the children to meet with each other and establish relationships.
