Foundation Stage Gallery

Foundation Stage have had a really exciting start to term 4! They are enjoying their new topic 'A Superhero Like You' which is based on a book by Dr Ranj and Liam Darcy.  The children have had lots of visits from 'superheroes' already! Including our own Mr Sam who showed the children how to 'interlock' building bricks and tap pins into a cork board with a hammer 'safely'. Mrs Warner from our school office explained how she helps to keep the children safe and ensure they have the correct lunches. Our FS children were very keen to help Mrs Warner mark the classroom registers and allocate lunch bands.  Two of our Brook Field dads, one of which is a nurse and the other a trainee paramedic, showed our children how to care for each other and help people who are poorly. 

 

We had a visit from Davina to help us learn about Fire Safety. We then had a very exciting visit from Mark, Tim, John and Jordan who brought the Fire Engine to show us!

Foundation Stage explored all the art doors in our school. We discussed which artwork we like the best and why.

Foundation started their new topic on Antarctica by searching for penguins hidden in our covered area. Everyone now has a penguin in the classroom to cuddle whilst they learn all about the weather conditions, landscape and animals found on this unique continent.

Road safety

As part of our topic, ‘Percy the Park Keeper’, we invited Mary from ‘Wild Science’ to come and visit Foundation Stage and share some of her wonderful animals. All of the children had lots of fun and were very excited to meet the animals. We all enjoyed stroking Barnaby the rabbit and Dougal the chinchilla. Mary had to spray Hop the frog with water and then we could gently touch Hop’s skin. We found out that Shelly the giant African snail is nocturnal. The children were amazed to discover that the corn snake ‘smells’ with its tongue! Unfortunately Mary’s hedgehog was too sleepy to visit us however Mary told us lots of interesting hedgehog facts and the children found out about why lots of animals hibernate during the cold winter months.

Thank you to Mrs Ashraf for coming into Foundation Stage and sharing how some Muslims welcome a baby into their religion. It was fascinating to hear how the newborn baby gets a little hair cut and what happens during the Aqiqah ceremony.

As part of our RE topic on where do we belong, Rev Angela Mak visited us and showed us how Christians welcome a baby through a Baptism. After demonstrating, some of our children chose to have a go at role playing with the dollies in the water tray under the watchful eye of Rev Angela.

Mrs Karavardi paid us a visit to share the Hindu festival Raksha Bandhan which is a celebration of brothers and sisters. After looking at some real rakhi bracelets, we had a go at making our own bracelets to give to our loved ones.

Our first day at school

As part of our topic on 'All about me!', we have started exploring what babies can do before we begin to compare this with what we can do at the age of four and five. We were very fortunate to have Miss Dixon bring in her baby today so we could see and hear what babies need and like to play with. Thank you Miss Dixon. Your baby gave us lots of smiles and made us all smile too!
