Our trip to Beacon Fell and class project!

We have had a fantastic trip at Beacon Fell. Firstly, we found lots of treasure in the forest. Once we had walked up to the summit, we exchanged our ‘booty’ for a gingerbread man! After our lunch we then created our ‘pirate dens’. In school we have been designing our dens and were asked the question, ‘How would we survive on a desert island?’ The children then put all their ideas together in groups and created the dens. Thank you to all of our helpers today! We hope you enjoy our photographs!

Key Person time W/C 3rd July and Home Learning

For your child’s Key Person Time and their Home Learning, we would like them to write down one sentence about something they have done in school that they are really proud of. For example, persisting and never giving up on something, showing that they could go beyond their best, helping other learners etc.

We are all very proud of you all and can not wait to hear what you think!

EYFS Circle Time

Today we decided to talk about our emotions, that it is ok to have feelings. After the terrible tragedy in Manchester recently, the children have been experiencing a mix of emotions. We decided to create our first ‘Floor Book’ about our emotions. Here are some of the videos and photos for our book.

For your child’s Home Learning, we would like your children to revisit 2D and 3D shapes. When you’re out and about or at home, look at for shapes such as, squares, rectangles, circles, triangles and even pentagons, hexagons and octagons. Also, look of for objects that look like 3D shapes e.g. a ball is a sphere, a dice is a cube. Look at for cuboids, prisms, pyramids etc.
