Welcome to the Foundation Stage webpage 2016/17
Here you will find copies of our newsletters and information booklets. We also hope you enjoy looking at what the children have been learning about.
Our Outside Learning Environment.
We would love to share our outside environment with you this term! We have had lots of fun in our builder’s yard area; we played builders and learnt many new skills. We have enjoyed making mud pies in our mud kitchen, (sorry if I come home a little dirty some days!) and we have enjoyed making lots of different types of den. We love our tractor tyre sand pit because we can get in it! We have also just started developing our new garden area; we have introduced a small pond, potting area, an insect hotel and a hedgehog house. We are working hard to grow lots of different plants and vegetables this year.
Autumn Term Welly Walk Adventures!
This term we have been enjoying weekly welly walks in our local wood. It is the time in the week that we all get excited about as we wonder what we may find! We went in search of the best materials we could find to make a strong house for the Three Little Pigs. We searched really carefully and collected lots of sticks and stones but what we didn’t expect to find was the big bad WOLF!
We also wanted to build a hedgehog house in our new garden area so we collected lots of different leaves to keep the hedgehogs safe and warm. Look out for our hedgehog house that we built in our new garden area in the photos.
We used our maths skills when we went in search of The Gruffalo characters. They were hidden around the woods and we had to find them all! At the end of our walk we ordered the numbers that were on the characters to see if any were still missing. We managed to find them all!
We loved the story about The Stickman and loved building the Stickman a new tree house in the woods. Some of us thought hard about making it strong and waterproof and others made the Stickman a sofa and a table!
We hope you enjoy looking at the photos!
