We have had lots of fun this month exploring our school and settling in to our new routines. We have enjoyed lots of sensory activities, playing in coloured rice, sand, water, pasta leaves and paint– we love getting very messy!
Our topic is ‘All about Me’ and the staff are getting to know all our favourite things. We are looking forward to using all our senses to explore the topic of ‘Autumn’.
The boys in early years are looking at all of the different colours of the rainbow. We have enjoyed tasting different red, orange, yellow and green food items, as well as discovering what coloured resources are in our box during communication group.
We would like to welcome our new friend in to early years. He has settled well into our class.
We have had a great February in Early Years. We have been focusing on different nursery rhymes each week; our favourites being Row, Row the Boat and The Wheels on the Bus. We even made our very own school bus out of a card board box. This has been great for role play and all the boys love being the driver!! Our pancake making was a great success...the boys were very excited watching them getting tossed up into the air. ‘Love was in the air’ on Valentine’s Day when we created some lovely art and craft pieces to send home to our loved ones. We have all been working very hard to develop our independent working skills in our ’Busy Bee Booth’. Chinese New Year was a great success when we were able to explore dry/cooked noodles and taste some prawn crackers.
November has been another busy month, all the boys have now settled very well into the class routine. We have been learning all about the story of The Hungry Caterpillar and all our favourite foods. We have enjoyed lots of role-play in the home corner, in our Veterinary Clinic and our Winter Wonderland. We are all getting very excited for Christmas and lots of fun festive activities over the coming weeks.
Pupils from the EYP have settled well into their lovely new classroom. They are learning lots of new things through the medium of play, and having fun at the same time.
