Foundation Stage - Robins & Bramblings
We have all been getting into the festive spirit! The children did a fantastic job in their Nativity play, showing great confidence and voices.
They have also been painting Christmas pots, making Christmas cards and writing letters to Santa. Merry Christmas everybody!
We have been exploring Music and Art in Foundation Stage. The children have been listening to music and responding with artwork, personally and in groups. We have been drawing our musical conversations and discussing how different music makes us feel.
We have been learning all about Diwali and the story of Rama, Sita and the ten-headed demon! The children have been creating their own Rangoli patterns and painting each other’s hands with Mendhi designs. The children made Diwa lamps out of clay and we then lit the Diwa lamps and reenacted walking back from the forest from the Rama and Sita story.
Having learnt about different types of bridges, the children went on a walk to see the two Bideford bridges. They identified different shapes, textures and materials and discussed which bridge was the longest and which was the tallest!
The children have been enjoying different versions of the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. They have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes and building our own bridges! The children tested their bridges with toy people, animals and cars.
The children are continuing to settle well in their new classes and have been having lots of fun exploring numbers, shapes and textures. They have loved experimenting with different objects and tools and they definitely love getting messy!
We have had a lovely first few weeks settling in together. The children have been fantastic learning all the new school routines and expectations.
We have been very proud of them all.
