It's melting (02.12.21)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

We picked the right week to get the children talking about science! The snow on Monday provided lot's of opportunities to talk about melting. We enjoyed watching the snow disappear in our hands. The children had some interesting ideas about what would happen to the snow if we took some inside and it helped them understand that something hard turns into something runny when it melts. We then repeated our experiment but with chocolate buttons in our hands. I think the children enjoyed this the most! 

          


Why do things melt? (29.11.21)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

This week we are learning about melting. We are also going to start our Christmas preparations!

In class we have an Advent wreath and over the next three weeks we will be inviting children to take home an Advent bag. This has a candle, a peg doll baby Jesus and a prayer inside. On the day the bag comes home, you and your child can watch our special Advent video which is in the parent files below and called ‘Jesus Christmas Party’. It would be wonderful if you could take this small opportunity to spend time sharing the Christmas Story.

Outdoor Friday (26.11.21)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

Inspired by Owl Babies by Martin Waddell, the children went on a treasure hunt to collect leaves, twigs and feathers to make an owl nest. We then warmed ourselves around the fire circle with some hot chocolate. We practised our hammer skills and had a great time splashing about in puddles. We were all ready for the rain today in our waterproofs but thankfully missed the downpour over lunchtime. It just meant we could enjoy the mud instead! 

        


A creative classroom! (25.11.21)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

We've had a week bursting with creativity, from enjoying some process painting to make an antarctic scene for a penguin to calmly collaging an iceberg. We've had almighty houses built and lot's of mark making. We've also had a giggle dressing up as our favourite characters with lots of talk about them. Here are some photos of our time together this week.

         


Can a penguin fly? (22.11.21)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

This week we are learning about penguins and that they live at the bottom of the world. We have some lovely penguin inspired play in our provision and will be doing some process painting and collage for our artwork.
