Photographs and Our Learning

Autumn Term 1 - Week 3

This week we are much more settled and confident in our new environment.  We have continued to explore and play in our classroom and the EYFS outdoor area.  We have been seeking out others to share experiences and developing some special friendships.  
 

This week has been filled with lots of excitement and child initiated play. Indoors there have been many child-led activities such as role-playing doctors and Iron man, building spooky castles and towers in the construction area and creating a playdough Spider-Man in the malleable kitchen.  Outdoors in the EYFS area we have been cooking fish and chips in the mud kitchen and role playing builders and firemen.  
 

Our wonderful experiences have continued this week including our Bilinguasing where we learnt to say Bonjour to each other and had fun singing along to heads, shoulders, knees and toes - and doing the actions.  We have also had a fantastic time at Gym & Tumble where we practiced our good listening skills with Miss Crewe. We walked, ran and jumped across the mats, we practiced sitting in positions such as tuck, pike and straddle and then finished with some fun games. 
 

We cannot wait to explore our amazing new Pre-School outdoor area which will be ready for us by the end of next week. 😁 
 

Autumn Term 1 - Week 2 

This week we have continued to explore our environment and develop our relationships with the children and teachers in our class.  We are settling in well to our new routines and becoming more involved in our classroom.  We have especially liked playing with the dolls and puppets, exploring the sea creatures in the small world area and  playing in the malleable kitchen area - making playdough cookies and cakes! 
 

This week has also been the start of our very exciting experiences!  On Thursday we met our new Bilinguasing teacher who is helping us to learn french and develop our communication and language skills.  Then on Friday we had a wonderful time in our Gym and Tumble session where we all got involved in moving and stretching in different ways to support the development of our gross motor skills. 

 

Our First Week in Pre-School - Autumn Term 1

We have spent this short week settling into our new environment and exploring alongside our new teachers and peers.  We have been getting used to new experiences and routines.  This week we have spent time having tea parties, playing with the dinosaurs and getting messy making playdough!
