Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

The snow has arrived! For the majority of the children in the Foundation Stage Unit it was their first experience of snow so we put on our wellies and waterproofs on to go investigate. Although each group only stayed out for 5 minutes, they gained so much from the experience by using descriptive language, discussing scientific processes such as melting and exploring something new.

What do you like to do in the snow? Let us know in the comments section below.

Teddy Bears’ Picnic

Today the Foundation Stage children enjoyed having a Teddy Bears’ Picnic. The children all brought in their own Cuddly toy from home and ate jam sandwiches and biscuits that the children had made themselves.

At the picnic we also played a positional language game, which Millie and Chocolate and Scarlett and Belle won. We even performed our own Teddy Bear dance.

Here’s a look at our fun packed day!

Goodbye Butterflies

In the Foundation Stage, the children have been eagerly watching five hungry caterpillars turn into beautiful butterflies. Everyone was interested in the changes that happened and were regularly checking to see which stage of their life cycle they were at.

On Monday we set them free in our sensory garden. We hope they come back to visit soon.

Thank you to Miss Bull for bringing us our new friends.

Spreading Smiles!

Today, Foundation Stage children have been working hard to spread smiles around the area. We drew happy faces and have stuck them all around the yard and Whitburn.

If you find one we hope it made you smile. Our aim is for our smile to pass around the local area and even further. If you find one, pass it on to make others smile. Pop a comment below to let us know where you found the smile.

Who knows where our smiles will end up!

Foundation Stage in Wonderland

To celebrate world book day, the children in the Foundation Stage took party in activities based around the story of “Alice in Wonderland”. We baked jam tarts, had a Mad Hatter’s tea party (wearing our own hats that we had made) and created our own Wonderlands using different materials.

One of the highlights of the day was sharing a story with a Year 3 friend. The children loved hearing the children reading some of their favourite stories to them.

That children (and the staff) had a fantastic day!
