Welcome to the Foundation Stage blog. This is where you can see updates of what your child has been learning at school.
Last week we enjoyed learning about the celebration of 'Birthdays'.
We designed cakes and described them, created wrapping paper using repeated patterns, held a birthday party, created birthday cards, wrote a list for party food and baked birthday cupcakes.
In the Busy Bee class the children held a birthday party for Puzzle (our maths owl) who turned four on Friday. We baked cupcakes, decorated them with four Smarties and ate them at the party.
In the Busy Bee class this week we have been reading the story 'Handa's Surprise'. Whilst we were reading the story, we asked lots of questions about some of the unusual fruits that Handa put in her surprise basket.
On Tuesday we tried some of the fruits. We had: Mango, pineapple, banana, passion fruit, avocado and orange. The spiky pineapple and soft, juicy mango were our favourites!
The children have had a very exciting first few weeks at school.
They have made new friends and are getting used to routines and expectations. The children have enjoyed learning about African animals and exploring story books in class. We have been reading lots of different stories based on Africa.
During Autumn 1 we will be learning about African animals.
Below is a slideshow of some African animals, do you know their names?
If you know any exciting facts about any of the animals make sure you tell one of your teachers!
