Early Years Get messy!

We had fun in reception today playing with shaving foam. The children got to squish it between their fingers and then had to think of words to describe how it felt and smelt. They had “the best day ever” and thought of some amazing words too!!!

Class 3 in the Woodland

Class 3 are learning about habitats and micro habitats in science. So we crept around the woods to see what we could find. We saw birds, a squirrel, slugs, spiders and wood lice.
We are drawing pictures of the creatures in their micro habitats.

Reading Corners

Take a look at the fabulous new reading corners our creative staff have designed and added to their respective classrooms. They will definitely provide a quiet, welcoming area for our children to lose themselves in a book!

Class 3 – Mondrian Art

We looked at some art by Mondrian.
