PJ Day

Foundation Stage -Ian's Mobile Farm

Foundation Stage enjoyed a really lovely morning visiting Ian's Mobile Farm.  The children enjoyed petting the pygmy goats, sheep, guinea pigs, rabbits, hens, ducks, a donkey and Shetland pony, alpacas and a gorgeous sheep dog called Meg.  It was the perfect morning, the sun was shining and children and animals were beautifully behaved.  The children learnt lots of things about the different farm animals and about how to look after them and their young.  It was such a special visit for all who went to the farm, including the adults.

It may have been wet and windy last week, but that didn't stop us enjoying the outdoors. We did some colour mixing in the puddles and loved building a den and 'sleeping in it'.

Thank you for sending in lots of Autumnal objects found in nature. Look at how we used them to create faces!

Eddie and Lathan retelling our story 'Naughty Bus'

We are really enjoying starting to investigate reflections as well as lots, lots more!!

We love dancing and singing in our new performance area...
