The grown ups had a turn at dressing up in medieval clothing today, the children could not imagine their parents wearing such clothes!

Discovering black and white photograph artefacts, we were very inquisitive!

We have enjoyed exploring our new castle role play area this week

Medieval clothing compared to our clothing today, what do we think has changed? Some great artefacts loaned by a parent to support us with our topic Y is for Yesterday

Retelling Our new book, Journey

Still image for this video
Today, all the children retold our story, Journey. This story doesn’t have any words so we retold it using our words and pictures. We used story language, once upon a time, next, then, after that, suddenly and fortunately.
A huge welcome back to all our Year Ones, and a very happy welcome to our new EYFS children. We are looking forward to kick starting another super year with you all, love from EYFS/Year One Team.

Our Walk finding Postboxes

Pumpkin Fun-all the children used hammer and tees to strengthen their fine motor skills.

Children enjoyed working as a team to label parts of the body. Following this they have talked about what parts of the body do by identifying their senses. 

Exciting learning from all our children this week. Well done to Foundation Children for staying in school all week.

Making the most of the Sunshine

We have been exploring journeys this topic. We all had a great go at creating models that reminded us of journeys we had been on, here are some examples:

"The castle in Wales"

"The aeroplane I will go on when I am 6 with Mum and Dad"

"my holiday in Dubai"

Exploring Autumn

Following on from our learning about journeys, we have begun to wonder about the journey of a letter. What is a letter? Where does it go? How does it get here? We have been so inspired, we have been choosing to write our own letters during our child lead learning.

We have been discovering human and physical geography in preparation for exploring our local environment.
