Health Day in Early Years

We have had lots of fun today. We were all measured and weighed. Layla is the tallest and Katie is the smallest person in Polar Bear Class.


We had lots of fun participating in Yoga and playing different games. We showed our visitors how good we are at listening to instructions. We then talked about what makes you healthy and we came up with a list;


  • Eat healthy food e.g. fruit, vegetables, meat, fish
  • Drink healthy drinks e.g. milk and water
  • Exercising
  • Have 11 to 12 hours sleep
  • Brush our teeth
  • Good hygiene


Pancake Day

In Early Years we have been reading Mr Wolf’s Pancakes. We have been working very hard writing lists for Mrs Manning of the ingredients we need to make pancakes.  We used our fred fingers and sounded out all words.


We all then took turns making the pancakes mixture with Miss Lister, Mrs Whitley and Mrs Abel.


We all then watched Mrs Whitley make the pancakes and put our favourite toppings on them. They were delicious. We had a fantastic day!

Reading Buddy Club!

Rhino class have teamed up with Polar Bear and Turtle class (early years) and have now each got a reading buddy. Every Thursday Rhino class have the chance to read with their buddy. They listen to them and ask them lots of questions. Then, they have the chance to read to them. Rhino class really enjoyed this and look forward to next week!




Toothbrushing time in Early Years

This morning we had a very special visitor, Viv. She came in to talk to us about our teeth and how it is very important to look after them. We all worked very hard answering lots of questions and did some really good listening. We even had the chance to pretend to be a dentist and look into each other’s mouths.


Everybody needs to remember to brush their teeth in the morning and at night time before bed.

In Early Years, we have had lots of fun learning about Diwali. We have read The story of Rama and Sita and we have watched videos of  a girl preparing and celebrating Diwali with her family. Two children in Early Years very kindly  brought in some Diwali treats for everybody to try. They were very yummy!


Leaves, leaves and more leaves!

Early years have loved exploring the leaves that have fallen from the trees around school this week. We worked together to collect the leaves using the wheelbarrows and brushes. We then enjoyed throwing leaves up in the air and seeing how high they would go and letting them fall back onto our heads. Some children even made ‘leaf angels’ in the leaves.

Harvest in early years !

This week we have been learning all about harvest.

We have learnt some harvest songs. Including the harvest samba, one world and big red combined harvester. What is your favourite harvest song?

For our harvest we will be performing the song of Dingle Dangle Scrawcrow. Can you sing it to your grown ups?

In preperation for our performance we have been making wrist bands to pretend to be a scarecrow. We used one handed tools and practised our cutting skills.

See you all tommorow (Friday the 14th October) at 2.30pm for our harvest celebration.

Our new dragon classroom !

In early years we have transformed our learning environment using the theme of dragons and fantasy.

We have been making knights using a range of different skills, including: using a hole punch, cutting carefully and holding scissors correctly and joining using split pins. Lots of children worked really hard and persisted, even when they found it a little tricky and they were successful in making a puppet knight! Well Done !



We have been reading dragon stories in our castle tent.

Dragons !

This morning we came into the Turtle class to find some kind of large egg was sat upon our smartboard!


We loved guessing what could be inside the egg and came up with some fantastic ideas. What do you think could be inside the egg?

Ponderosa !

We had a fantastic time at Ponderosa. What was your favourite part of the day?
