We’ve been extremely busy in our Foundation Stage, preparing for Christmas.
After a wonderful Nativity at Oakford Lawn Senior Citizens Club, (thank you, Oakford Lawn!) where the children were utterly amazing, we have been making Christmas cards, writing letters to Santa and wrapping presents in Santa’s workshop outside.
We have also had a Grandparents morning where Grandparents came into school to take part in some lovely Christmas craft.
Glitter was everywhere but we had the best time!
P.S. We have sent a photo of Nativity to the Mid Devon Advertiser so keep a look out and fingers crossed they will put it in!
The Foundation Stage children have begun practising for their Christmas Nativity! We have all been given a special part and some of us have words to say too. We have been singing the songs and learning all the actions, really well.
In Reception, the children have learn the tricky words he, she, and we and the sounds r, l, and ll.
In Froglets, the children have been trying to write the first letter of their name!
Outside we have used chalks to draw pictures of Rama and Sita and we had a pretend swimming pool and a lake with fish, in our construction area.
Foundation Stage are learning all about Autumn. We have had some Autumn activities such as playing in our Autumn Shop, making Autumn collages, painting hedgehogs and making Autumn leaf crowns. We went to Oakford Lawn to look for signs of Autumn.
This week in Phonics, Reception have learnt the sounds ‘n’ ‘d’ ‘g’.
Froglets have been playing lots of listening games and listening to sounds in the environment.
The children in Foundation Stage have been learning all about the Hindu Festival of Diwali. We have been dressing up in prince and princess costumes like Rama and Sita and we have been building palaces in our construction area. Reception made Diwali character puppets and Froglets made play dough Diva lamps.
In Maths we have been practising our counting. Froglets have been matching numbers and Reception have been using bigger numbers in the teens! We have all started practising singing for our Nativity and we are very excited.
Foundation Stage had their sports afternoon yesterday (24th May). We had a very energetic time!
Froglets were amazing, joining in and having lots of fun.
Holly and Oak classes cheered everyone on, showing great sportsmanship.
We all had a wonderful time at ‘The Wedding of the Year’ and hope Prince Harry and Meghan have a beautiful day too!
Last week a musician visited us. He talked to us about how a guitar works, how the sounds are made and how to tune it. We had a go at joining in one of his songs and got to dance too. We had lots of fun!
