What a  busy two weeks we have had. We have been learning the phonemes g o c k ck u e r and using them to build words. In our shop we have been working out problems involving ' 1 more' . Our new wheel barrows have been a real hit with lots of children helping  us to collect leaves in our outdoor area. The children have enjoyed using forks to paint with and using spray bottles making lots of new colours. Lots of children have practised their knife and fork skills at the play dough table. The snack bar has been very popular as well! This week we introduced 'Percy the Park Park Keeper' stories which we will continue after Nursery Rhyme week! 

Themes coming up after half-term ......

This week the Year R children enjoyed joining in with the Federation Harvest festival. They  sang and signed to the song  'Big Red Combine Harvester' . On Tuesday morning the Bumblebee Class walked to Stubbington Library. They enjoyed listening to some stories and taking out some books with their own library cards. They were very well behaved and we were all very proud of them. A big thank-you to all of our volunteer helpers who came with us.On Friday all of the Reception children looked very smart in their Red, White and Blue clothes. Thank you for supporting this event and your kind donations!

Red,White and Blue day!

Today the Bumblebees went on a welly walk. We looked at how the school grounds are changing. We noticed the leaves falling off the trees and all of the changing colours. The children went on a scavenger hunt and found lots of exciting Autumn objects in the woods. When we got back into school we made some Autumn Art with our collection. We found lots of different colours and textures. Please ask your child what they collected today!

Wow! What a fantastic first two weeks of full-time school the Reception children have had. They have been 'Super Explorers' exploring both the indoor and outdoor classrooms. The children have visited all of the Year R classrooms for story time and all three teachers have read stories to every class! The children have enjoyed their yummy dinners in the hall and visited the computer suite to practise their mouse control skills when using 'Busy Things' . We have been doing lots of mark making and the children have been learning a song to help them with this. Please ask them to sing the 'Stripe, Stripe , Dot, Dot, Dot ' song  to you and maybe they could show you their mark making on a piece of  paper! Well done Year R !
