Spring Term

We’ve had a lovely Spring Term in Early Years, playing and learning inside and out, exploring nature and watching chicks hatch and grow …. here are some of the things we’ve been doing in Nursery and Reception ….

 

‘No Diner’

In Reception we have been reading ‘No Dinner’ by Jessica Souhami,  a traditional tale about how an old woman tricks greedy animals who want to eat her, in the forest. We did lots of talking about the story, we drew pictures, acted it out, and the children did some amazing writing!

Autumn Term 

Early Years Classes enjoy weekly sessions exploring and learning in our ‘forest’ area. The forest offers opportunities for outdoor learning in a natural environment. Children explore, learn about team work, collaboration, problem solving and lots more, through a range of practical activities such as building shelters and dens, hunting for bugs and creating natural art work. Here are some of the things Nursery have been doing:

Reception children have been talking, drawing and writing about what they did in half term. Have a look at their amazing work!

We’ve had a great first half term in Early Years. Children in TWOs, Nursery and Reception have settled in well. They have been exploring the environment, making friends and playing and learning inside and outside.
