Welcome to Foundation One!
Come and have a look at all the things we have been learning and enjoying .....
This week we have been learning about The Gunpowder Plot. We had lots of fun making fireworks by splatter painting!
We have been learning about Autumn. We listened to the story 'Leaf Man,' by Lois Elhert. We went on an Autumn walk and collected lots of leaves. We made our own Leaf Men out of the leaves we had collected.
We have been enjoying the sunny weather. We had lots of fun cooling down in the paddling pools!
We all had a fantastic day at Smithills Farm. We went on a donkey ride, fed and held the animals, had a tractor ride and watched the cows being milked.
We got changed all by ourselves for our PE lesson. Didn't we do well!
Our topic this half term is 'The Farm.' This week we have been learning about the story, 'Farmer Duck.' We have been busy painting all the different animals on Farmer Duck's farm.
We all enjoyed making our Easter bonnets and going on an Easter bonnet parade, showing our hats to the rest of the school.
This week we have been listening to the story, 'Jasper's Beanstalk.' Today we have planted our very own 'magic beans.' We are very excited to see what happens when they grow!
We all enjoyed learning about our bodies during Science day. We thought about what food was healthy for us to eat and made fruit kebabs. They were yummy!
We talked about Shrove Tuesday and Lent with the children today. We followed a pancake recipe and mixed flour, milk and eggs together. We noticed how the ingredients changed when it got hot. We ate our pancakes, they were yummy!
This half term our topic is 'All about food!' This week the children have enjoyed tasting a selection of French food and deciding what they liked the best. They had fun eating in our French cafe and learning to play 'boules.' Thank you to Sophie's and Margaux's mummies for coming in and working with us.
This week we have been learning the story 'The Elves and the Shoemaker.' The children enjoyed threading shoes and playing in our shoe shop.
Foundation One enjoyed exploring our new Mud Kitchen. We are getting better at putting on our outdoor suits and wellingtons. We had lots of fun working together at digging, mixing and making lots of different food.
Our topic this half term is 'Traditional Tales.' This week we have been learning about 'The Gingerbread Man.' We had lots of fun making Gingerbread Men today. We mixed all the ingredients, cut out our Gingerbread Men and put them in the oven to bake. Don't they look yummy? We'd better eat them before they run away!
Foundation One enjoyed exploring our field and wooded area. We got changed into our outdoor outfits and had lots of fun making camp fires, going on our own bear hunt and finding natural resources to help develop our imaginative play.
This week we have had lots of Christmas fun in Foundation One!
On Monday we had our Christmas Party where we enjoyed dancing and party games including 'Pass the Parcel'. We had a special visitor, Father Christmas! We sang Christmas songs and everyone got a gift! We had excellent manners and everyone said 'Thank you!'
The children enjoyed going on a 'Stick Man journey,' around our school. We enjoyed sticking items on our 'journey stick,' to show what we had found.
Well done Foundation Stage on a fabulous Nativity!
