Early Years

We have had a wonderful time back at school since March. We have been basing our learning around some traditional tales, such as The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The children have enjoyed creating posters to warn the other children in school about the giant, as well as making porridge and investigating our crime scene where we found bowls and porridge everywhere!


During the last half term of this year, we are going to be basing our learning around minibeasts as the children in EYFS are fascinated with finding creatures in our bark area. We are going to be reading the stories Superworm and Spider Sandwiches. We are also going to be looking at some poetry, as well as some learning based around the Olympics and transition to support our Reception children going up to Year 1!


As always, we are making use of our wonderful natural surroundings. The children love to explore and climb trees, as well as taking care of the vegetables that they planted a few weeks ago!

 

Gardening Challenge

Over half term, we would like you to create a plant holder using something that has been recycled eg. a wellington boot or a watering can. This can either be filled with plants or ready to be filled in school. These newly created planters will be positioned and cared for, in our school garden to brighten up our environment. 

Please bring these recycled planters into school during week beginning 7th June. 

In addition to this, the school is asking children to take a cutting from a well established plant at home and pot this up to generate a new plant. This will then be used in the new planters in the bark area that FOGGS have kindly made for each class. 

Please bring these newly generated plants into school on Monday, 21st June.
