Beech and Willow class long term curriculum overview.

Beech class have been transferring our sunflowers out into the raised beds and weeding.

More amazing maths work. Beech class can now show 'double' on dominos and with numicon. They can say doubles up to 12. They can use numicon to show different ways to make different numbers.

Look how much fun we can have measuring! We were 'beavering' away noticing the different numbers on the tape measures. We also worked so well with our partners taking turns and helping each other.

Wood whittling. When it's too wet to go to Forest school we do our Forest school skills here at school. What a very careful job the children did too. Well done Beech class and Ms Cannon.

This Tuesday's Forest school session at Landscove. The children found daffodils growing, buds on the tree and daisies growing. During free play the children made muddy hot chocolate and used the swing to pull each other forward and back.

Some of us aren't keen on painting on paper so we tried painting on ice and everyone wanted to join in. We learnt we could wash the paint off and start again. As the day went on the ice melted. One piece of ice broke into two and one of the pieces was kindly offered to another children. Great communication skills and team work.

Beech class have been working with Willow class in Dance. Just after five lessons they have produced this great dance.

Well done to everyone.

Continuous Provision at it's best! Firstly the children found some ice in the playground then they asked for water to make it melt quicker. Followed by one of the children suggesting we add the polar bears and penguins who live in icy water. Resulting in great team work creating an area for animals that live in water and an area for animals that live on land.

Puzzles have been very popular this week and wow, it was great to see the children using their reading and number recognition skills so confidently in their play.

Story telling by Fleur. After we learnt the Three Little Pigs story off by heart everyone made up their own versions by changing the characters and the materials the first two houses were made of.

Harvey's story telling. Instead of the Three Little Pigs he had the Three Little Iguanas.

Our current text for Literacy is the Three Little Pigs so we had a go at building our own homes. Everyone did a great job and lots of good team work skills were demonstrated. Followed by the creation of a get a way car for the three little pigs.

Beech class have got some new construction kits to help with fine motor skills, independence and sharing ideas. Great concentration from all.

When everyone wants to join in drawing aliens! Great pencil control practice, concentration and achieving their own goals.

What better way to spend your time on a sunny afternoon than sharing a book with a friend!

Amazing work retelling the story of 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'. Sorry I couldn't upload the whole video as it was too big, however the children did manage to retell the whole story.

We went on a Bear Hunt, and we found one! The children made all the props and then retold the story as they acted it out.

The new message station is a real hit!! The children have been writing messages, making little books, notes to each other and their families.

Great Maths work. Each week when we learn a new number we show it as a numeral, with objects, on a dice, dominos on a tens frame and with numicon. We then look for it in the environment followed by drawing it with chalk on the playground floor.

Following on from learning the The Little Red Hen story off my heart everyone in Beech class made up their own story with small world animals. Great job everyone.

We visited Landscove Primary School for our Forest School session. We explored the area and had lots of time for self initiated play. We also got to make bird feeders and magic wands. Thank you Miss Cannon for a great afternoon.

Autumn pumpkins. We had such fun with these pumpkins left by the Little Red Hen. We engaged in a lot of fine motor skills, communication skills and characteristics of effective learning.
