Welcome back

Children have come back to school happy and ready to learn. This week we had a range of activites that children enjoyed.

We made divas for diwali. Using clay children moulded their diva's with their fingers, then we let them dry and decorated then using different coloured paints and sequins. 

We also made firework pictures and children really enjoyed making them with glue and glitter some children described the noises fireworks made.

We had a 2 minute's silence on monday to remember the soliders that fought for us in the wars. Children made a poppy and we went outside to put our poppys together on the grass in the F2 area.

Children also drew a picture about what they did in the holidays. Children were excited to share everything they had done with adults and their peers.

In maths we have been looking at 2d shape, and discussing the properties of 2d shapes.

In literacy we have been looking at rhyming words, children then attempted to match words that rhymed with rhyming picture cards.

In our talk for writing time we have read the story  'We are going on a Bear Hunt'

In Phonics we have learnt sounds 

Set 1: s, a, t, p
Set 2: i, n, m, d
Set 3: g, o, c, k

This week we have learnt 3 new sounds ‘ck, e, u’. Children learnt how to write the sounds using a rhyme and have played many games that involve segmenting and blending with sounds learnt so far. 

In maths this week we have been looking at one more and one less with numbers 0-10. We have been doing this by using number lines , looking a nursery rhymes and stories.

In Literacy we have been looking at poems and discussing rhyme. Children have enjoyed exploring rhyme and discussing different vocabulary.

This week we read the story Pumpkin Soup. children enjoyed exploring the vocabulary and have really loved playing with pumpkins in their play.

This week we have learnt sounds 'g,o,c,k'. Children have loved phonics and have been repeating rhymes that help them learn how to write the sounds in their own play.

Our focus story has been Silly Billy, we read the story and discussed what worries were? how could we help? who could we tell? Children enjoyed making their own worry dolls to take home or leave at school. In each classroom we have a worry doll station where children can go to if they have a worry and can talk to an adult about how they are feeling.

In maths we looked at part part whole, a method that helps us partition numbers and helps with the understanding of additon and subtraction. 

We also read the story Leaf Man children then designed their very own leaf man with leaves they had collected at home or had collected from the F2 outdoor area.

During circle time this week we played a listening lola game of chinese whispers. Children were very good at this game and were focussed and engaged whilst playing.

During Foundation 2, the children will progress through the Early Years Foundation Stage which is accessed through both indoor and outdoor learning. We are extremely fortunate to have a brand new outdoor classroom, which the children can freely access throughout the day, both through adult led and child initiated activities. The children will learn the skills which will then be enhanced through play, exploration and investigation of the world around them.

Each area of learning and development must be implemented through planned, purposeful play and through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activity. Play is essential for children’s development, building their confidence as they learn to explore, to think about problems, and to communicate and socialise with others. Children learn by leading their own play, and by taking part in play which is guided by adults. There is an ongoing judgement to be made by practitioners about the balance between activities led by children, and activities led or guided by adults. Practitioners must respond to each child’s emerging needs and interests, guiding their development through warm, positive and effective interaction. As children grow older, and as their development allows, it is expected that the balance will gradually shift towards more activities led by adults, to help children prepare for more formal learning, ready for Year 1.
