For Valentines we had to think about what makes our heart feel full; what do we love and makes us feel happy.

We had so much fun at the bedtime story event.  We played games, listened to

We also introduce the bedtimes stories suitcase that is filled with books and treats! We hope over the coming weeks you will enjoy taking this home to continue to develop children's love for books and stories. 

Autumn 2

We have been using our gross motor skills to climb...

And fine motor skills to create beautiful firework pictures...


We had great fun trick-or-treating around the other classes, although we did have to sing for our treats at times! We loved our Halloween disco and worked hard at decorating our pumpkins! We finished the day with a Room on the Broom video which we loved as a treat!

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!
