Outdoor Friday

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

Outdoor Friday this week has been about length to correspond with our indoor maths learning! We have tied ribbons around a tree, collected lots of sticks and ordered them according to size, made hand prints with a long concertina paper and decorated a chalk outline of ourselves.

We've had lots of celebrating birthdays this week in Outdoor Friday. We created birthday cards made from clay, used the Mud Kitchen to create lots of delicious buns and cakes and used our hands to create mud masterpieces.


Winter Wonderland

We hosted our annual Winter Wonderland this evening. Our creative children and the friends of our school produced some amazing merchandise to sell.

Thank you to everyone who could spare some time to support our children's creativity.

 


Outdoor Friday

Every Friday, all Foundation children spend all day outside participating in lots of outdoor activities. These activities change every week, but the children always have lots of fun. Sometimes they may relate to our topic that week and other times they simply encourage children to use nature to create something wonderful :) 

This Friday we; made birthday mud cakes and added stick 'candles', played lots of games that helped us with our balancing skills and made comfy hotels for all the bugs we find!


We're in the band!

All Foundation Stage children formed their own band this week! They had real microphones, speakers and music and  made instruments out of whatever they could find! Some children also had a boogie to the music :)


Stick Man Hunt!

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

To begin our learning journey about the Stick Man, we went to explore the big school field to see if we could find him, his Stick Lady Love or his Stick Children 3. We had lots of fun shouting his name to see if he would answer and finding lots of exciting places to explore :)

Outdoor Friday is still going really well and the children are having lots of fun. Today our activities included; making knots with ribbon, reconsigning and naming the different trees and building an assault course!


Beat Baby

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

Allow us to introduce you to Beat Baby :) She visits F1 3 times a week and always begins the session curled up in a ball. We have to wake her up by keeping a steady beat and calling her name.

                     

The children then have to maintain the steady beat as we sing lots of different songs and nursery rhymes. We have been practicing clapping the syllables of our names this week and singing nursery rhymes to a fast and steady beat!


Outdoor Fridays

We have started Outdoor Fridays. This is where both F1 and F2 children all go outside and complete different activities. We always have lots of fun!


Have you ever visited a theatre?

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

We turned F1 in to a theatre! The teachers put on a show, acting out The Three Little Pigs and Mrs Senior was an awesome Big Bad Wolf! We had an interval, where we could buy popcorn, crisps, biscuits, jelly and ice cream and juice. We then could put on a little show ourselves, if we wanted to! It was a lovely day and we really enjoyed it!
