Our Visit to the Library
We went to the library and all chose a book to bring back to school. We scanned our own book on the scanner.
We used the props to act out the rhymes. We will be reading the library books during guided reading time.
Trip to Lyme Park 22nd November
FS2 had a fantastic time on their trip to Lyme Park. The children visited the old nursery in the house and learnt about the toys that children played with over 100 years ago. This was a lovely link to our current topic about toys.
African Drumming Session- 11th October
The children in FS2 loved taking part in an African drumming workshop as part of our Black History Month celebrations.
School Trip to Stockley Farm- 25th April
The Foundation Stage enjoyed their trip to Stockley Farm. We bottle fed lambs and kids, went on a bumpy tractor ride and groomed a pony. We also saw lots of baby animals in the barn and learnt about milking cows.
Spring Fund Raising Concert 2017
Foundation Stage raised over £150 for Cafod by inviting parents to a Spring concert. The children sang songs they had learnt with Sam. Everyone had an enjoyable afternoon, for a good cause.
Paper Making Workshop - 6th March 2017
All the children in FS2 took part in a workshop to make recycled paper. The children worked in partners to create a piece of paper which they decorated in the theme of Roald Dahl.
The children in Foundation Stage were very excited to meet some real life owls as we have been reading the story of Owl Babies. This is linked to our topic of 'Light and Dark.' We saw an African Spotted Owl called Joe, a Tawny Owl and a White Owl called Rupert. The biggest owl of all was a Milky Eagle Owl called Lizzy.
FS2 have been learning the story of Creation in their RE lessons. They were very excited to act out the story and performed it in their first assembly.
We had a great sports day. The sun shone and the children enjoyed taking part.
During Sports Week, children in Foundation Stage participated in a story dance called 'Under the Sea.' The children went on an adventure under the sea and moved their body in rhythm to the music.
BLUE PLANET AQUARIUM
As part of our topic on 'Water,' the children visited the Blue Planet Aquarium in Ellesmere Port. The children and staff found it fascinating and enjoyed seeing all the different sea creatures.
Nine chicks hatched from the eggs in the incubator. We helped look after the chicks by feeding them special food and giving them lots of water to drink. They were nice and warm in their brooder box. Everyone had the opportunity to hold a chick. We were sad to see them go back to the farm after two weeks. They had grown bigger and started to grow their feathers.
World Book Day.
The children enjoyed dressing up as their favourite character.
