Autumn Term Updates

Week beginning: 26th September 2022

It has been another great week in F2, we have really enjoyed sharing the story of the three little pigs. We loved joining in with the story and pretending to be the wolf “I’ll huff and I’ll puff until I blow your house down!”

In the water tray we explored wooden blocks, building houses of different shapes and sizes. The sand tray was filled with straw and it was great fun making cosy houses for the pigs. On the creative area we used duplo and lego bricks in trays of paint to create some amazing patterns. We also used sticks and lots of glue to make the house made of sticks!

In maths we have explored the concept of subitising, the children were so good at recognising collections of I, 2 and 3 in various patterns and understanding that the total was still the same.

We finished the week by taking part in our Mansfield Town penalty shot out, we had such a good time and scored lots of goals! Well done Gruffalos!

Next week we will be sharing the story “The Gingerbread Man.”

W/B: 19.09.2022

Although we have had a shorter week this week we have been so busy!!! The story we have read this week was 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. We have loved reading the story Jack and the Beanstalk and haved enojyed our continuous provision activities all related to Jack and The Beanstalk. We have loved creating our own repeated pattern on the beanstalk leaves, printing castles, making repeated patterns out of buttons using tweezers, writing speech bubbles for the characters and asking questions all about the magic gold beans in the curiosity cube. 


In Maths this week we have been learning all about repeated patterns, making A/B patterns, A/BB patterns and A/B/C patterns. Miss Wheatley tried to trick us by making mistakes in the patterns but she didn't trick us, we could identify the mistake and fix it! In Literacy this week we have been busy writing CVC words, using flash cards to create the words and the writing them in our literacy books. 


Next week we will be reading the story 'The three little pigs'. 

Week begining 12/04/2022

Well, we have had another fabulous week! I am so proud how well we have got on this week. The realisation has kicked in and so has the tiredness but we have worked so hard and pushed out into the deep. This week we have read the story 'Goldilocks and the three bears'. We have loved this story, joining in with the repeated refrains and predicting what will happen next.  In our continuos provision we have been playing with oats, making different sized chairs out of playdough, creating tissue paper bears, cutting out different 2D shapes to make a bear and writing initial sounds onto bear shaped paper. On Friday we made porridge, not to hot and not to cold, we got to all taste it and we all loved it!


Next week we will be reading the story 'Jack and the Beanstalk'

Week Beginning: 5th September 2022

WOW! What a fantastic first week we have all had! We have loved starting school and getting to know all of our new friends, teachers and classrooms. Together we have enjoyed sharing the story of the Ugly Duckling, sitting and listening so well on the carpet! We have explored lots of different areas of provision, in the creative area we have looked carefully at ourselves in mirrors and created some wonderful self portraits. On the writing table we have used paint brushes in trays of glitter to practice writing our names. In the sand we have enjoyed exploring feathers in wet sand, making lots of marks and patterns. On the fine motor table we have been using tweezers to pick up and sort weathers into colour groups. It has been such a busy week. We have learnt so much already and we are so proud of how well the children have settled into school life and routines. Well done everyone!

Next week we will be sharing the story, Goldilocks and the three bears.
