SCARF- All about me.

Helen came into school to talk to Cranford all about me, the children learned about body parts, looking after ourselves and having help from our adults.

Tractor and trailer

Outside construction started with building a tractor and trailer then developed into a bus and wherever their imagination took them.

Autumn Storms

Storm Agnes arrived perfectly for our PE lesson today. The children made kites and took them for a good run around the field. Amazing fun!

Matching in Maths

In maths we are able to match by size, colour or objects. We enjoyed matching animal pictures during carpet time.

Amazing Autumn

We have introduced some Autumn resources and colours to different areas of continuous provision which has been inspired by the children’s interest in this season. The photos show our playdough hedgehog making, using different utensils to paint leaves and our Curiosity Cube.

Our trip to the new library

We went to the new library in Bideford. We caught the 319 in. Katie read us some stories. We had a look around then visited the park for lunch. We had a fantastic time!

Thaumatrope toy

Today we made a toy from the past. We span the two pieces of string and when we let go the bird went in the cage.

Healthy eating

As part of our topic ‘all about me’ we had the Asda man into school today to visit Cranford class and Sunflowers. We got to taste different fruits and learnt that we must eat 7 pieces of fruit and veg a day.

Our Autumn walk

Today we went on an Autumn walk around ‘muddy lane’. We saw sheep grazing, cows a very long way away, a tractor cutting a hedge, a tractor going down the road, lots and lots of muddy puddles and lots of signs of Autumn. The best part was that the sun shone for us!

Patterns, patterns, patterns

Yesterday as part of our maths we needed to copy a pattern and then have a go at making our own.

Toys from the past

For our history this term we looking at ‘Things from the past’. We have borrowed at box from Barnstaple museum and today we looked to see what we recognised.

All About Me

We have been learning all about our bodies and learnt lots of new vocabulary. We are able to name and point to the correct part of our body when asked.

Playing to Learn

Sunflowers and Cranford have used their imagination and created a ‘storm’ by building a circle of wooden blocks and a brick ‘mountain’ to climb over. They demonstrated careful balancing skills and great communication in this activity.

Our fantastic bodies

We have started the year off learning all about ourselves. We have been learning the names of different parts of our bodies. We were then given a sticker to place on our bodies. We did a great job!

Welcome to the Autumn Term!

It has been lovely exploring our continuous provision and getting to know our new friends who have joined us.

End of Term Party

Sunflowers and Cranford Class had a lovely end of term party. There was lots of fun with dancing, games and party food to enjoy. The EYFS team would like to wish you all a lovely summer!

Sunflowers on Sports Day

Sunflowers had an amazing time on sports day. In the morning we participated in round robin activities which included running, throwing, kicking and balancing. After a picnic lunch on the field, we took part in the running races. Well done Sunflowers!

Painting Pots

Further to our earlier blog titled “Moulding Clay Pots”, we have taken a lot of care and attention decorating our pots.

There’s a Shark in the Classroom!

This morning we had the opportunity to study closely a smooth-hound (part of the shark family), a sea bass and a crab. We were able to touch if we wanted and were able to use words to describe how they felt; ‘smooth’, ‘soft’ and ‘squishy’. We were also able to use sentences to express our […]

Moulding Clay Pots

In creative arts and design we have used different techniques to model clay to make a pot; squeezing, pulling and pinching. These movements all help to develop our fine motor skills. Cranford Class had the challenge of making a coil pot.
