Fairytales

For two weeks we have covered fairytale stories, as these stories cements most people’s childhood memories. The children love stories so there was eager anticipation each day to what crafts we would be making!

 

The children created Cinderella’s lost shoe as well as her golden carriage. Princes and Princesses crowns, wands, the three little pigs houses, little red riding hoods basket of treats and goldilocks porridge.

 

The lower preschool were learning about the number 2, squares and the colour green as well as practising their pencil skills.

The upper preschool were learning the letter K for key. In numeracy they were learning to recognise the numbers 1-10 and put them in the correct order.

 

We went to the playground one afternoon and this week in forest school we practiced tree climbing!

You couldn’t replicate the fun we have out in forest school in the classroom and I think the below picture explains why!

Children in Need

Every year we have a week of fundraising for the BBC Children in Need charity. This year the children and parents surpass themselves with cake baking and fundraising.

The week started off with a fancy dress day. We had two charity walks, one for the morning children and one for the afternoon children. Our final day was a cake stall on Webbs road that the children ran themselves.

The children raised nearly £900!! This was an amazing effort and thank you everyone for helping.

Halloween & Bonfire Night

After a lovely Autumn break we got stuck in to celebrating Halloween.

The children created their very own pumpkin bags for trick or treating. They decorated Halloween biscuits and had a go at carving a pumpkin.

They also made some wonderful spooky skeletons and ghosts for our themed boards.

 

Archie’s mum, Rebeccah, came in for story time and read a wonderful book called ‘Iggy Peck the architect’ which the children adored.

At forest school we had lots of fun making a spooky forest with ghosts in.
