Foundation Stage Fun!

Our Little Gems have had a brilliant week this week with so many exciting activities.

We learnt about bones and fossils on Monday when working with a visiting scientist.

The children had a wonderful time at Thomas Land.  We all enjoyed the rides, the animals, the park and our picnic with friends.  Even the weather was great!

We had a super time with our new friends on Tuesday and Thursday morning, and we look forward to another session next week.

The Animal Lady came on Friday and shared her animals from Australia, including a kookaburra and a stick insect.  It was very exciting the children could even touch some of the creatures!

 

Tapping Rythmns!

The Little Gems have been learning to tap rythmns in school this term.  We use body percussion and instruments to help us keep the beat during singing.  Our Star Foundation activity this week supported this learning.

 

Bear Adventures!

The Little Gems are really enjoying their bear adventures.  We have travelled through the woods, had picnics and this week we went to the moon!  The children are really developing their imaginative ideas and creative skills.  Great learning Little Gems!

Honeybees and Butterflies!

This last few weeks the Little Gems have been learning about bees and butterflies.  We have had a great time moving, singing and creating these mini beasts.  We made honey biscuits and a fruit salad.  Well done trying new foods Little a Gems!

 

The Gingerbread Man

The Little Gems have been learning the story of The Gingerbread Man.  They can sequence the story and use puppets to retell the story with friends. We talked about the different characters, nobody likes the sly fox!  The children enjoyed decorating gingerbread men today.
