Reception went to Bents, the magical garden centre where we saw Father Christmas . Each group chose a decoration for our class tree and then, took it to the till to pay for it. We saw lots of trees and lights and we even had time to go on the park.What a fabulous day we had.

Off to the woods we go…

This afternoon Reception 3 visited the woods. We arrived and had ‘team talk’ on the log where Mrs Ogden reminds all of the children of our key rules in the woods, and then we went to explore. As you can see from our photographs lots of exploring took place and we found snails hiding in trees, spiders, fairy doors and more. The photographs that look like sky with dots are in fact falling leaves and the children were fascinated with the speed in which they tumbled to the ground. A groups of children also collected some leaves to make patterns…lots of mathematical language was used.  We also had our snack in the woods….milk and tangerines and then we shared a story.  It’s been a busy day as you can see….

Drum roll please….time to celebrate ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

A couple of weeks ago Mrs Cumberpatch received a phone call from Nursery World magazine, they were putting together an article on transient art and had seen some images on our blog and wondered if we would like to contribute some information for a case study? Mrs Cumberpatch consulted with the EYFS team, and Mr Lawler-Smith…and we all agreed what a fantastic way to celebrate our hard work. 

This week you can read our case study in Nursery World magazine, and in fact if it has inspired you to try some of the ideas, there are lots of ideas in the magazine, online and on our blog! Please share any images with us through Tapestry too.  

 A big well done to Mrs Cumberpatch and the whole EYFS team….a proud moment!

Happy Birthday 

Today (15.10.15) we had two birthdays so we decided to make some cakes and have a little party. 
We talked about the ingredients and then talked about some mathematical words we needed to think about throughout the process: balance, weigh, measure, same. We balanced 4 eggs with butter, sugar, eggs and flour. As the ingredients went into the bowl, everyone had a turn to mix the ingredients. After that we shared the mixture into the cake cases.
Then we put them into the oven, waited 15  minutes and then the cakes were ready.
At snack time our party began. We danced to music and tried the cakes….and they were delicious! The chocolate cakes were a present from Rudi. Have a look through the photographs and see if you can spot who had a chocolate cake! 🍩🎂🍰🍪
