We have been learning about Italy this week! Have learnt to say hello and we have learnt some very important Makaton signs, like pizza!!
We made our own pizzas, used pasta in our art and had some delicious ice cream too.
We talked about the colours in the Italian flag, and noticed that the shape of Italy looked like a boot on the map!!

This week we are learning about Jack and the beanstalk.
We were very excited to get a special letter and parcel from Jack! Last time he had seeds his mum just threw them out of the window.
This time Jack wanted to know how to look after beans! Luckily we knew the seeds needed soil, water and sunlight. We planted our seeds and we cant wait to see them grow!

We have been reading the Enormous Turnip in Lady bird class. We have investigated different vegetables and made vegetable soup. We have ordered the vegetables in size order and we have been learning lots of new words to describe big and small. We found tiny seeds and enormous trees in the garden.
We have learnt the makaton sign for vegetables!
Can you show your grown ups any other signs that you can remember?

Happy World Book Day!
We have had a most fabulous week reading and sharing stories together. We have loved the story of Who Swallowed Stanley and have been thinking about how we can help the animals in the environment around us. We have been so mindful of our rubbish too, and have taken great care to recycle or reuse what we can!
We made some delicious octopus biscuits and crafted some little turtles and jellyfish for a display all about this story too.
On Thursday we came to school dressed as one of our favourite characters and enjoyed telling our friends all about the sort of books and stories we like.

We were lucky enough to have a visit from our friend Adam at AMK. He bought a huge coach for us to look at. We saw the luggage compartments and even the engine at the back.
Adam then took us on a short journey on his coach around Bordon. It was so high up and we could see lots of familiar sights like Tescos and Dominoes pizza shop.

Happy New Year!
Welcome back to all of our children and families, we hope you have had a happy and healthy break. The children have come back full of news and ready to learn and play.
This week we have been excited to find out about THINGS THAT GO! We are looking forward to our hook day on Monday when we we find out lots more. To get ready, we have made our own bus, complete with shiny wheels and pictures of where we wanted to travel to. We were also lucky to spot the road sweeper and an Asda van outside our playground too!
What vehicles have you spotted near your home? Keep your eyes peeled and let us know what you have seen.
After a busy week of parties and celebration assemblies, decoration making and lots of play, we're all ready for Christmas with our families.
All the team in the Early Years and Nursery send you best wishes for a peaceful, happy, and healthy Christmas and New Year.
Thank you all for your kind words, Christmas wishes and very generous presents!
What a busy week! We have been crafting, singing and getting in to the Christmas spirit this week. We are so very excited to see you all on Monday at 2pm for our Christmas sing-along. We have been honing those makaton signs and singing our hearts out to make it a special occasion for all.
Please remember due to current Covid restrictions, we are asking for just one member of each family to come and watch the performance and requesting that if you are able to wear a face covering, that you do. It may also be appropriate for you to take a lateral flow test before attending for your own peace of mind.
One of the songs we have been learning is Christmas Pudding, see if you can have a go at the Makaton signs along with your child!

We have also been thinking about animals that hibernate, and went on a scavenger hunt and made homes for animals too.
Don't forget Parents evening next week! See you then.
We have had such a fun week this week, particularly with a visit from our friends at Bordon Fire Station on Wednesday! We coloured in lots of pictures for the Firefighters to take away so that they can decorate their Fire Station too - keep a look out as you drive past!

We have also been continuing to learn about the seasons and this week, we learnt the Makaton sign for winter! We thought about which animals live in cold places and made our own penguins and polar bears.
We took part in One Kind Word day too, where we all wore odd socks and talked about how were are all different, just like our socks!

We made our own poppies and helped to make a wreath that we laid in assembly on the 11th.
We also thought about Diwali, and made some delicious Coconut Barfi for snack too!

This week we enjoyed an autumn walk around school. We found lots of crunchy leaves and saw that the colours were changing all around us.
It has been so much colder since half term too, we found lots of slippery cold ice in our playground, we noticed it melted as the day went on.
We loved talking about Halloween and all the fun we had trick or treating over half term. We have also seen a few early fireworks this week because it has been so dark at night! We made lots of very sparkly and colourful fireworks pictures.
We had a visit from our friends at the Ambulance service too as Reception are learning all about People Who Help Us. We had a great time exploring the ambulance and learning all about what a paramedic does.

This week we have been enjoying Arts Week. We have used our love of the story of The Tiger Who Came To Tea to explore tigers in art!
We really loved Henri Rousseau's Tiger in a Tropical Storm. We made our own version of the picture using strips of paper, we thought carefully about the colours of the jungle and then hid our tiger in amongst the foliage!
If you would like to buy your child's artwork, our gallery will be set up outside on Friday afternoon. You can pay for the artwork either in cash, or with the Scopay app.
15th October 2021
This week we have been thinking about tigers in preparation for Arts week next week. We have loved reading the story of The Tiger Who Came To Tea, and drew some fabulous tigers for our display. We really thought carefully about all the features we would need to include.
We then decided to make the tiger some food. We had lots of fruit left in our bowl in the classroom, so made him a pear and apple crumble. We had to use our strong fingers to rub the butter and flour together and added lots of sugar because we thought the tiger might like that!
We had to taste test it first of course!!!
8th October 2021
This week we have been playing outside and watching as the season changes into autumn. We have noticed how the leaves have started to fall from the trees and we have needed to wear our coats outside much more too!
We took advantage of the lovely weather to head to the park to play too, we really enjoyed having a walk with our friends and climbing on the big equipment!
We have been honing our motor skills too by warming up with some delicious toast, and practising buttering it all by ourselves. Delicious!
1st October 2021
This week we have been thinking about ourselves and our families some more. We have really enjoyed reading Monkey Puzzle and talking some more about our family, who they are and what they look like.
We have been practising our good listening skills too, and listening carefully to instructions as we made some chocolate cornflake cakes! They were yummy!

We welcomed the Stick Insects back to Lady bird Class after their little holiday with Mrs Ford! They enjoyed their time away and are now busy meeting lots of new friends at Weyford!

It was lots of fun!
