EYFS – Reception

Forest School

Butterfly Class have started our Forest School sessions! We will be going to Ashburton Wood every week with our Forest Lead Miss Nguyen and teacher Miss Ile. This week we learnt how to change into our Forest School clothes and to look out for hazards at Forest School. Our challenge was to work with our partner to go …


As part of Diwali week, Bee class learnt about Divas and later created their very own ones using a range of techniques. They also had opportunities to make ‘Rangoli’ patterns using materials such as rice, lentils and a mixture of seeds and beans. 


Reception children were delighted to use natural materials to create art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy. Children used tweezers appropriately, showing good control over small movement.


Last week it snowed… a lot! We were outside exploring in the snow. As well as having a lot of fun, we found out about safety in the snow, and investigated changes.  


We love using numicon to explore number. Here you can see us investigating addition using the numicon and balancing scales. Some of us can write addition number sentences independently to show what we have found out!


We meet with Miss Verity every week to develop our confidence, communication and role play skills. We had a lot of fun acting out ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, especially when we took on the role of the Giant!
