Before we broke up for Half Term, EYFS asked the children to work with parents to create their own Chinese Dragon! They could choose how they wanted to represent the dragon and we were overwhelmed by the response. Aren’t they fantastic?!
Good job Nursery and Reception (and Parents)!
To begin our topic of “My Colourful World”, the Early Years have been looking at the Elmer stories. We have had such fun making our own Elmers, experimenting with different patterns and making posters get a lost teddy back home.
Here are some pictures of creations.
We can’t even begin to describe how proud we are of the Foundation Stage stars for putting on such a professional performance of Frozen for our Christmas production.
Every child was amazing!
Last week, the children in the Foundation Stage enjoyed a fantastic Christmas party.
We played games, ate food and even had a visit from Santa!
Today, the Nursery Children had a fantastic time at West Boldon Lodge learning all about being an Elf.
We started by making our own Christmas hats before exploring the Candy Cane forest. We searched for made Christmas jigsaws and sang Christmas songs as we toasted marsh mellows by the campfire. Then we went back inside to help deliver Christmas presents and drink some hot chocolate.
However the best part of the day was meeting Santa and finding out if we were on the Nice list.
As always the children were excellent ambassadors for the school.

The snow has arrived! For the majority of the children in the Foundation Stage Unit it was their first experience of snow so we put on our wellies and waterproofs on to go investigate. Although each group only stayed out for 5 minutes, they gained so much from the experience by using descriptive language, discussing scientific processes such as melting and exploring something new.
What do you like to do in the snow? Let us know in the comments section below.
This week the Foundation Stage children have been looking at the story of the Gruffalo’s Child by Julia Donaldson.
The Nursery Children found a track mark in in the waiting room which thought might belong to the Big Bad Mouse so we went on our own adventure to find him. Along the way, we discovered tracks in the “snow” and repeated the chant “Aha! Oho! A trail in the snow. Whose is this trail and where does it go?”
The children were then given time to explore the tracks and recreate them in the snow.
It was a fun time enjoyed by all, especially me!
Today the Foundation Stage children enjoyed having a Teddy Bears’ Picnic. The children all brought in their own Cuddly toy from home and ate jam sandwiches and biscuits that the children had made themselves.
At the picnic we also played a positional language game, which Millie and Chocolate and Scarlett and Belle won. We even performed our own Teddy Bear dance.
Here’s a look at our fun packed day!

Nursery and Reception have been building up their balancing, travelling and jumping skills. The children have shown promising progress and have enjoyed exploring the apparatus.
Here are some pictures of our future gymnasts.
