Piglets have been very busy today celebrating Canada Day. They read a fab book using numbers to show Canada’s favourite things, coloured and made their own flags, and made yummy cakes using the two colours of the flag. A lovely activity learning about a different country. Well done Piglets!
It was a very colourful week in Lambs, as their book of the week was Elmer by David McKee. The children designed their own Elmer patterns using colouring sheets. They made their own beautiful elephants using various coloured tissue paper which they cut up into different sized pieces and stuck onto the top part of plastic milk bottles. They were very intrigued how a plastic bottle could turn into an elephant Their cooking activity was amazing brightly coloured cupcakes which c

The children all lined up at the start of the lanes and after hearing ‘ready, steady, go’ the children all raced to the end. Once they reached the finish line there were lots of shouts of ‘I did it, I did it!’. On returning inside the children chose the flowers they wanted and placed

They talked about the life cycle of a frog , how they start off as frogspawn, then tadpole, froglet, then frog - there was lots of discussion between the children about this activity. The children explored a pond which had
We've purchased two of these tables using some of our fundraising money. The children love to sit and have a chat or read books.
The Tiger Who Came to Tea - Lambs
Lambs book of the week was The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr. The children had a tea party in the garden, made tigers out of play dough, tiger cupcakes, decorated and cut out tiger masks and enjoyed the story at circle time.

Using pencils & crayons…pincher and tripod grip. There were lovely conversations throughout
