We have been obsessed with bugs and mini-beasts this week in Early Years!

It all started when one of the children bought in a book to share their interest in bugs. Now we are bug detectives and have been learning facts about mini-beasts and searching the playground to find them!

(Don’t worry, we put them back safely after…)

 

If your child has any books or experiences they would like to share, please bring them in as we love to hear about their interests!

 

See you tomorrow bug hunters! 🙂

Book day in Early Years!

We have had a fabulous day dressed up as our favourite book characters. Have a look at our wonderful costumes!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some of us even went on a trip to the post box to post a letter to the evil witch…ask us what she has done!

 

 

Have a brilliant Easter break & we hope you keep your book characters reading!

 

Love Miss Rooney & Mrs Clayton

This week the Elephants and Meerkats have been thinking about how to stay healthy. We have thought about healthy and unhealthy foods, exercising and when to wash our hands to avoid germs!

Today we made some fruity milkshakes for our milkshake party! Ask us why fruit and milk are good for our bodies.

 

 

Have a happy healthy weekend everyone!

 

What an exciting week in Early Years!

We were surprised with a present at the beginning of term…

We researched lots of creatures that could live in our tank and we have been writing to the fish man to ask him if we could visit.

This week some of us went to see and even buy some fish! What an exciting few weeks.  Our teachers have been so impressed with our hard work & sensible behaviour.

 

 

 

See you Monday everyone! Hopefully those fish will behave…

Early Years to the rescue!

This week Early Years have been defending the school from the Evil Pea! Take a look at his awful tricks.

We wrote lots of notes to warn him off telling him to stop and leave us alone!

Some of us even mashed those evil peas….

 

 

And some of us cut up some veggies!

 

Have a wonderful and safe half term everyone!
Remember to check your freezer for escape-peas!

Love Miss Rooney & Mrs Clayton

What a SUPER week in Early Years!

This week Elephants and Meerkats have been reading Supertato! What a great week it has been.

We have been making our own super veggies, acting out the story and writing to Supertato.

 

Today we cut open and tasted different fruits because we were talking about their seeds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some of us tried grapefruit, pomegranate, melon, mango, pineapple, and even lime!

Remember, some vegetables are frozen for a very good reason….

Meerkat’s have been baking!

On Friday we read the book ‘Honey biscuits’ and thought we would have a go at making our own!

We talked about where ingredients came from and used them to bake a batch of our very own biscuits.

 

Hope you enjoyed the biscuits, we have the recipe if anyone would like to have a go making them at home!

The Elephants have been cooking pizza today!

We decided at the start of the week we would like to make a pizza! We spent a few days writing shopping lists for Miss Rooney and then today got to create our own.

We practised lots of important skills such as mixing, cutting, grating, rolling and kneading! We have been working our arm muscles hard, especially our shoulders, elbows and wrists. This will help us with our writing!

After all our hard work we took the pizza home to eat.
 

 

 

Can’t wait for next week to find out what else we might bake…

What an amazing term!

What a brilliant term Meerkats and Elephants have had playing and exploring.

Take a look at some photos of our Winter Walk earlier this week.

Miss Rooney & Mrs Clayton are so proud of all your hard work. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, see you in January!

We have been learning to add!

In our number time we have been learning that when we have two groups of objects we can add them together to find a total number. We have been doing this using lots of different objects around the classroom and also outside.

 

Maybe you could try to do some adding at home. You can use absolutely anything! Try using the words add and equals, maybe even for a challenge can you children write the total amount or even the number sentence?
