In our FS classes, we do a lot of preparing foundations for learning and enjoyment in later years, and making sure children have a secure base of knowledge that they can build on in Year 1 and beyond.
This week we’ve got some real ‘building’ going on, too, as the children learn how to use hammer and nails safely. They’re practising independence, too, mixing and using their own paints – it’s a messy but learning-rich experience!
This week we are enjoying Pirates Love Underpants, so you might spot a lot of pants-related learning – even symmetry through pants design! We are loving our new pets. The children have chosen to call them Shark and Gummy! The children are busy collecting orders for the ice-cream parlour – apparently we can even have sprinkles and a flake. There are some wonderful salespeople in Foundation Stage!
We are all set up for the children to explore all things fishy!! We have created a mermaid writing cave and an under water investigation area to learn about all the different animals that live under the sea 🌊. You might also spot activities to enhance fine motor skills and turn-taking!
