Who's been eating porridge in our classroom?

Image
Early Years were shocked to come into school and find 3 bowls of porridge left  in our tray. They have concluded that it is Goldilocks and The Three Bears visiting our school late at night.
We have been ordering the different size bowls, spoons and chairs. We also measured how tall we think Daddy Bear could be and used the correct vocabulary to describe different heights. (shortest and tallest) 
 We decided to make posters around school to warn others of our unexpected visitors. Please let us know if you see anything else peculiar going on this week!
In phonics we have now learnt all the sounds below.  s a t p i n g o c k e
We also enjoyed learning our first word I. 

Once upon a time...

We have been very busy this week in Early Years. Together we have had so much fun learning our class story, using our story actions. We also made our own stage in the classroom for the children perform the story. Children, please re-tell your grown ups the story of the little boy who wanted a friend. This week the children have loved playing in the library, using the story shelves to act out their own versions of a story. 
In Maths we have been learning about 2D shapes. We created our own shape 'Borris' robots, sorted shapes into groups and went outside to mark-make our own shapes on the playground.
Over the next couple of weeks, we will be talking and learning about Autumn in Early Years. We would appreciate if parents could donate a pumpkin to us, this will be used for our outside messy play and sensory topic table.  
Have a lovely weekend!







Bedmond Week

Last week we loved being part of Bedmond week and celebrating our local village. We explored what places we recognised around the village; tin church, park, shops and village hall. We then created our own maps using different coloured shapes to represent different things. We then welcomed Year 5/6 pupils to come and teach us about what they learnt when visiting the famous church. We then went on to create our own art work on the church, using our own cutting and sticking skills. 





Phonic sounds this week, i n m and d. 

Feeling Magnificent

Image
In Early Years we have been talking about what makes us feel good on the inside. We created our own recipe for feeling magnificent. Here are some of the children’s ideas:
Caring Kindness Hopes Love Sharing Dream Big Respect
We set up a potion station outside in the sunshine. We stirred, mixed and used pipettes to transfer the liquid into potion bottles.
We created a display in the dining hall, sharing our learning with the school.


Last week we learnt phonic sounds; s a t p
I wonder if the children could spot items around the house starting with these letters?



First Week in Early Years

WOW Early Years!
We all can't believe how quickly the children in Early Years have settled into their new environment and school routines. We have been very busy learning the new areas of our classroom and getting to know each other. During circle time we shared with each other all about our families and our interests are. Our class puppet 'Poppy the Bunny' has been teaching us how to tidy our resources away during tidy up time.
We all went on a class walk around the school, look at how great we are at lining up!


We cant stop singing our new class song 'Herman the Worm'. 

Welcome!

Welcome to Early Years' blog page!
We are so excited to be launching these this year so that we can keep you in the loop on what we are learning in class. 
There is no set time that we will be uploading so please check back regularly or ask your child if we have added anything that day. We will not be using names or faces following the new GDPR rule, we ask that if you comment please do not use children's names either.
It would be fantastic if you could comment on a post and give us some feedback, however, please keep things positive and encouraging as we share these posts with the children in class. (Posts go through admin before being published so it can take some time to appear!)
Early Years look forward to sharing their new academic year with you ツ
