Road Safety

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: Foundation Stage 1's Blog

F1 learnt all about keeping safe when crossing the road when Ellie came to visit us!

We must ALWAYS stop, look, listen and think when crossing the road and hold a grown-ups hand. 


When is a whole not a whole?

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: Foundation Stage 1's Blog

We’ve been learning about whole and not whole in Maths this week. What better way to consolidate our learning than with toast! We had a whole slice of toast which we cut in to 2 parts, before gobbling it up!


Forest School TV

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: Foundation Stage 1's Blog

ATTENTION, ATTENTION.... Foundation Stage now has Forest School TV!!!

The children have taken the ‘TV’ around Outdoor Friday to give you a little snapshot of them enjoying Outdoor Friday. All the photos are staged by the children and a teacher snaps away-when told to of course!


Hedgehog Friday

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: Foundation Stage 1's Blog

Outdoor Friday had a hedgehog theme this week :) We watched a little bit of Auntie Mabel and then shared our hedgehog knowledge! We then made hedgehogs at the mud kitchen, made a den for the hedgehogs, painted hedgehogs with forks and built a bridge across the sandpit...phew!


Squirrel Friday

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: Foundation Stage 1's Blog

We had a squirrel themed Outdoor Friday today! We built nests for squirrels, went on a nut hunt, made nut cookies at the mud kitchen and played in the autumn leaves :)


Pumpkin Friday

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: Foundation Stage 1's Blog

Thank you once again to all the grown-ups that came to share Outdoor Friday with Foundation Stage. We’ve had lots of fun with the pumpkins today; whether that be making pumpkin mud cakes, leaf crowns and wreaths, pumpkin fairy worlds and decorating a pumpkin biscuit. We hope you enjoyed the scrummy pumpkin soup that Mrs Olding made!


Have you ever come face to face with a creature?

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: Foundation Stage 1's Blog

Rachael from Lion Learners came to visit F1 today, bringing with her lots of interesting creatures. She brought; guinea pigs, rabbits, a snake, a bearded dragon and some millipedes. We came face to face with them and some of us were even brave enough to hold them :) 


Outdoor Friday

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: Foundation Stage 1's Blog

We didn’t let the rain dampen our Outdoor Friday this week! Although we couldn’t do some of the activities we had planned this week, we certainly had lots of fun mixing paints in the puddles, making beautiful leaf necklaces and bracelets and charcoaling leaves!


Outdoor Friday Returns!

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: Foundation Stage 1's Blog

This Outdoor Friday was dedicated to...sticks!! We watched Stanley’s Stick and saw how we could turn simple sticks into something amazing! We also made time to play in the boxes :) 


Baking

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: Foundation Stage 1's Blog

We have been making Rice Krispie Marshmallow squares today in F1! Using the theme of plastic pollution, we added a ‘plastic’  bottle to our ‘sea’ We’re sure you’ll agree-they turned out amazing :)
