We have had a great start to International Week in Nursery and Reception, with the children enjoying learning about Poland and Polish culture. We have been making Polish cucumber dip, and can’t wait to try it later! We have also been exploring symmetry in Polish folk art called Wycinanki, making our own designs by cutting and sticking indoors, or using natural materials outside. Then we had some very special visitors! Zuzanna, Maia and Victoria came to to tell us all about going to school in Poland, read some Polish poetry and tell us about national traditional dress. Thank you so much girls! Dziękuję!0 Comments

In Early Years, we have started our new book, Grandad’s Secret Giant. We have learned lots of new vocabulary, discovered an enormous tooth brush and have been making traps to see if we can catch our own giant! The children have been drawing pictures of the giant with huge pencils too!0 Comments
We have been learning so much through imaginative play this week, using small world outdoors and in construction, talking about the size of the things we use and build. We also had a great time pretending to be dogs, and used lots of positional language taking part in dog agility games!0 Comments
We are delighted to see our friends back in school today and have been having fun in the sun playing with numbers and enjoying books, as well as writing letters and numbers in spooky slime indoors! What other spooky goings-on will there be this week?0 Comments
The teachers are so happy with how the children are learning and playing together. The children work calmly inside, using play dough, glitter trays and role play areas to learn, while outdoors they are developing their physical skills and enjoying the natural world.0 Comments
We are loving the book Supertato! The only problem is, the evil pea keeps causing trouble at school. He has thrown potatoes all over the floor and we have had to gather and count them, and he has trapped veggies in the shredded paper! We have been designing and making lots of traps to try to catch him!
We always think and talk about the weather when we come to school. Today we were delighted to explore the force of the wind, making flags and discovering the feel and the sound of the wind’s power.0 Comments
We are so lucky to have not only wonderful school grounds, but a fantastic new kitchen in the EYFS. Today we started the day by harvesting our very own potatoes which have been grown at school. We washed them ourselves, then followed a recipe to boil and mash them, adding other ingredients (weighing and measuring carefully) and mixing well. Our bread smelt fantastic as it baked, and we enjoyed sharing it for our snack the next day. We are farmers and chefs, and a family that cooks and eats together!
We were so excited to welcome Nursery and Reception to school at the start of September! The children enjoyed exploring their environment and the opportunities indoors and outside. We are going to have fun learning together!0 Comments
