Squirrel watch (24.05.22)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

Today we ended our learning about squirrels by making dreys using twigs and craft materials. The children told us all about what they looked like and what they like to do. We have over the course of the last week, managed to spot our resident squirrels and sneak up on them, which has been great enthusiasm for the children's learning. Of course, everytime this happened, there was no iPad in sight to capture the moment. Instead, we've managed to capture the children enjoying their favourite things in our provision. 

                 


What can you learn about a squirrel? (16.05.22)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

Oh we love squirrels in Foundation, with many resident squirrels in our outdoor area. Although, we're not always quiet enough to tempt them to play with us during the day. The teachers always see them once all the children have gone home! So we're learning a little more about them this week, and hopefully if we're quiet enough, we might just see one.

A mouse took a stroll through the deep, dark wood... (13.05.22)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

...children saw the mouse, and the mouse looked good. Well, we tried to see a mouse. We listened to the birds. We felt the leaves crunch under our feet. We looked up to the sky and talked about the canopy of leaves above us. We had a biscuit and storytime. Above all, we walked all the way to the woods and back again. The children were fantastic. Well done F1. 

   


Who lives in the deep, dark woods? (09.05.22)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

Is it a creature with claws and sharp teeth in his terrible jaws? Do they have knobbly knees, and turned out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of their nose? Does it have orange eyes, is its tongue black and does it have purple prickles all over his back? 

Yes you've guessed it. We're immersing ourselves with the Gruffalo this week and learning about what animals live in the woods. On Friday, we will be walking to the woods too, more information will follow later in the week.

Oh Grandma, what big eyes you have! (05.05.22)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

This week we have been retelling the story of Little Red Riding Hood, embracing our role play area and taking it in turns to play Little Red, the wolf and Grandma. We've talked about what we see in a forest and been using the words we've learnt about a tree in all our discussions. The children enjoyed process painting leaves onto the branches and tree trunks.
