Previous Weeks' Learning

 






 








 




 





The children have been exploring lots of drawing and mark making together.

We have been printing using 3D shapes to explore what 2D shapes we can make.

The children worked so well together building this amazing space ship!

    

The Bumblebees are enjoying this week's focus test, 'The Gruffalo'! They even made their own 'Gruffalo Crumble', using the ingredients terrible tusks, orange eyes, purple prickles and poisonous warts! Yummy!

After reading The Gruffalo, the children have been hard at work using junk modelling to make their own 'terrible creature'.

The children have loved making Gruffalo crumble!  They used the recipe to add all of the ingredients together.

  


This week we have been learning about the number four. We have explored how Numberblock 4 can be shown in lots of different ways. The children used the multilink to show this in the environment. They were so excited and remembered so much! 

    

The Bumblebees have loved our focus text, 'Owl Babies'. Here are some of the Bumblebees acting out the story with puppets. 



"After reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar, the children chose to draw the fruit from the story using a different colour pastels."

 

The Bumblebees have loved the story of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. They enjoyed creating their own caterpillar from cable reels, kindly donated by C.J. Electrical. Carefully, they balanced all the way across the caterpillar to reach the food! 

The children have loved the outside area this week. They have been getting very mucky in the mud kitchen and by jumping in muddy puddles!

The Beetles loved their PE lesson this week! We practised stretching in different ways and challenged ourselves in some relays. 

    

 

In Bumblebees we have loved learning about the numbers 1, 2 and 3. We have been exploring the Numberblocks  and some of us even drew our own! 

 

In Bugs we have been reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  The children sat and retold the story using our class story map!

 

The children in EYFS have had so much fun playing in and with the tractor tyres! Thank you so much to Farmer Ted and Collette at High Park Farm for kindly donating the tyres. 

 


Some lovely free painting of the children's families!

We have been practising our fine motor skills by using the end of a paint brush to trace different patterns.

The Bumblebees are loving our 'Funky Fingers' activities! 'Funky Fingers' really helps exercise our muscles in our hands and fingers! Today we enjoyed putting Cheerios on spaghetti! We had to work hard not to break the spaghetti and could only put the Cheerios on with one hand. It was tricky but we managed it! We counted to see who had the most at the end!
