EYFS Schools Games Day

What a lovely afternoon we had, taking part in our EYFS games day!

The children participated enthusiastically in a range of activities, including an egg and spoon race, a space hopper race, seaside race, bike race, water race, obstacle course and beat the goalie.

The children had so much fun and did a fantastic job. There was a great atmosphere and we must thank you all for coming to support the children!

Take a look at them in action…

 

Reception Sharks & Jets – British Values Day

Jubilee Bunting Clip Art

Today we have celebrated British Values Day. We have had some fantastic discussions around the five values; democracy, rule of law, mutual respect, individual liberty and tolerance. We located Britain on a map and identified the different countries within it. We then looked at images associated with Britain, including its wonderful diverse culture.

In our classes we have made friendship bracelets, recognising how important it is to be kind to others. We also had a go at recognising the Union Jack and collaged our own! In the construction some children even had a go at building Buckingham Palace. In our floor book groups we were very democratic – designing our own class mate! We all had lots of ideas but voted to choose their different features, to make sure it was fair. We then shared these at the end of the day to celebrate similarities and differences.

Such a fantastic day! Have a look at the celebrations here.

EYFS at the Seaside!

Despite having typically British weather for our seaside day the Nursery and Reception had a brilliant beach day!

They enjoyed splashing in paddling pools, digging and building in the sand, donkey rides and bouncing on a bouncy castle!

This all made them hungry so it was time for traditional fish and chips!

Have a look at our donkey riders here! 

In the afternoon there was time for ice cream and a Punch and Judy Magic show!

Have a look at us enjoying the show here! 

What an exhausting but fun filled day at the beach! It just goes to show that whatever the weather there is fun to be had!

EYFS Family Festival!

Today the Nursery and Reception classes wowed their families with a super performance! Each class had prepared a piece to share with their families to show them how much they loved them! They did a super job!

EYFS Chinese New Year Celebrations!

Nursery and Reception came into school wearing red today! The colour red is seen in Chinese culture as a lucky colour. They started their day in the school hall where they heard about different Chinese traditions for celebrating New Year. They learnt and sang a Happy New Year song and took part in their own dragon dance! This assembly was just the beginning and the children will spend the week immersed in different activities to learn about the traditions and customs associated this Chinese New Year!
