People who help us
This week we have been looking at the different people who help us, today we have looked at the postal workers, supermarket staff and the bin workers. We have written postcard to our friends that we miss, and found out about the journey our postcards will take. We have solved problems and sorted the shelves using the clues given, and we have found out about where our rubbish goes and what can be recycled.
The day the crayons quit
Today the children have looked more at the colour monster. We have talked about when we feel different feelings and what we do when we feel that way. The children have then designed their own colour monsters, some children have written about them too!
Today we have been learning all about colours. We started off by reading ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear’ and talked about all the colours in our environment. We then moved on to reading ‘The Colour Monster’ and looked at how different colours make us feel and how colours can describe how we feel.
All the children coloured a Monster and explained why they chose the colour they did. Yellow was very popular because it described ‘happy’
We then moved onto colour mixing! The children had great fun getting messy with paints! We made ‘colour sums’ using two different colours, one for each hand and then rubbing our hands together to make a secondary colour!
We finished off the day by putting all our colour mixing knowledge to learn about a famous artist called Kandinsky, who liked to mix colours when he painted. We were inspired by his art.
Today we have used Elmer books as our focus. We have painted Elmer's and coloured by number (addition sums), looked at other jungle animals and talked about what makes us special. https://youtu.be/wdyo4ykh2WA
The Gruffalo is hungry!
Today we have been learning about healthy eating. The children have learnt about the food groups (carbohydrates, protein, dairy, fats and fruit & vegetables)
We learnt about why we need to eat healthily and we have sorted food according to whether it is healthy or unhealthy.
We used everything we had learnt to make the hungry Gruffalo a healthy packed lunch!
We made perfume!
As part of learning about keeping clean, the children made perfume. We used rose petals. The children mushed the petals up and then we added hot water. All the children took it in turns to mush the petals into the water. We then left it to ‘stew’
We all agreed it smelt really good!
As we obviously can't have our class photos this year I am putting together a class photo for each class as a lasting memory of this time!
If you would like to have your child added to their class photo I need you to send a head shot (from the shoulders up) of your child to email@example.com (By doing this you are consenting to share your child's photo with other parents)
I would need these no later than FRIDAY 19TH JUNE! There is no uniform to the image you send just a clear smiling head shot of your cherubs! (Please no snapchat style filters!)
We need your help!
Hope you’re all well!!
As you now know, Mr Partington is leaving us in July.
We would like to make a video for him. It would be brilliant if the children could record a short message for him, no longer than 15 seconds please!
In addition to this we’d like to make Mr Partington a book of memories. If you have a special memory of him please send to us!
Memories and videos to be sent in for Tuesday 30th June to...
Thank you 😊
Our exercise video
The children had to read their exercise and demonstrate to the others how to do it. We would love to see your exercise routines, can you write your plan and then follow it?
The children have been talking about their bodies, we looked at the body parts we can see, and those hidden inside and what their job was. The children had fun drawing around each other and labelling the bodies.
As part of our learning about our bodies , the children in school, have found out why it is important to was our hands with soap. We also used our hands to help with maths - some children have practised counting, some have practised number bonds to 10.
This week we are learning about keeping clean. The children learned about keeping their teeth clean using toothpaste and a tooth brush with Mr Haywood and Ms Rashid. We followed the instructions of Budd on Brush with Budd and the Brush Bus. Both can be found on YouTube
EYFS Outdoor environment
During lockdown we have had lots of work done to the Outdoor area. All the mud and grass has been replaced with fake grass!
This means that we can use the bike track and all the other areas that used to get very muddy, all year round!
Isn’t it beautiful!

Take care children, keep safe with your families and stay home ❤️
Hello there lovely children!
Hope you’re all well and staying safe at home with your families.
I was reading the newspaper and found that one of our favourite authors, Julia Donaldson has worked with her favourite illustrator, Alex Scheffler to show how the characters from her books are staying safe against the Coronavirus!
Here they are...
Did you recognise any of the stories? Characters?
Each picture shows us how we can stay safe at home, can you tell someone in your family what these ways are?
Take care children, keep safe and stay at home!

World Book Day
On World Book Day we wore our pyjamas and lots of stories throughout the day off different adults from around school. Our parents were invited to come in and read some stories too!
Goldilocks and the 3 bears
We have been reading the story about Goldilocks. We have made porridge, acted out the story, wrote wanted posters for Goldilocks and then wrote a sorry letter to the bears. We tested materials for a waterproof coat for baby bear, as well as lots of other fun things!
Manchester City Training
Each week all the children do a football session with Manchester City trainers. Each half term follows a theme and the child build upon their skills from the following week. They have a warm up, usually followed by a game before getting footballs out. It’s hard work but the children love it!
In the build up to Christmas the children had a party, had a cinema afternoon, watched a The Elves and The Shoemaker by a performance company, they even got a visit from Father Christmas.
A visit from The Vicar
In the build up to Christmas the Rev. Phil came from our local church to talk to the children about Christmas. We talked about different people and the jobs they had to do to get ready for Christmas.
In the count down to Christmas we made Christingles.
Printing Patterns with vegetables.
Designing our own aliens.
This morning we held our first phonics Friday for the parents of the children in Peter Pan group. They came and joined in our phonics sessions. We look forward to welcoming the parents of Eeyore next Friday.
Hello Yellow 😀
We had a lovely day raising the awareness of our mental health. The children all dressed in yellow and we talked about different feelings. We did lots of things that make us happy. We also relaxed by doing some yoga and meditation activities.
