Outdoor Provision

We have two great additions to our outdoor area this year - a mud kitchen and a tinkering shed. 


Well, our children have had an amazing time swimming over the last two terms.  They have made so much progress from being afraid to get into the water to having the confidence to swim like fish!  Look how much fun we had in our last session.


We have had a fantastic STEM week in the EYFS, incorporating our theme, Transport.  The Reception children enjoyed linking new books, Naughty Bus, Boy on the Bus and Rattle and Rap to their learning.



Understanding the World

We have enjoyed finding out about traditions we follow in our families.  The children brought the interest of pancakes for the upcoming Shrove Tuesday/Pancake day.  We had lots of discussion about what we do at home on Pancake day and how we enjoy our pancakes.  We incorporate lots of measuring in our making of pancakes and (almost) everyone enjoyed eating them with some traditional toppings.
