So, let’s dive head first into the Spring Term with a look around the Foundation Phase classrooms.
Nursery’s new topic is Nursery Rhymes. They made New Years resolution stars, created stars in the Twinkly play dough, sieved the sand for hidden stars, completed dot to dot number constellations, wrote ‘s’ for star on the whiteboards and made stars on the light board.
The new topic in Reception is fairytales and their first story was the Three Little Pigs. They built houses outside for the pigs, created different parts of the story in play dough, stuck the correct materials on labelled houses and wrote key words.
Year 1 took a stroll through the seasons, kept warm with their Hot Chocolate stand, made woolly hats and enjoyed other Winter themed activities. It was a great first week back and the staff were delighted to see the children.
Year 2s new topic is ‘Weather’. They created tally, bar charts and used J2e to create pictograms of their favourite weather. They designed, built and evaluated snow forts made using marshmallows and sticks (They showed great team work) Finally, they researched snowfall in Wales and the amount of snow on Snowdon.
As you can see, children and staff in Foundation Phase have been very busy, already, this term. Next week, we’ll have a look round Key Stage 2.
