We are having a very interesting few weeks in the Foundation Stage unit! When we arrived in school there were some very mysterious looking footprints on the ground. The next day an egg arrived in the classroom. We were all very puzzled. We became detectives and used magnifying glasses to get a closer look at the footprints and egg. We made predictions about what we thought was inside the egg and shared our predictions with our friends.

On Monday 16th March we were extremely excited as the egg had hatched! We received a letter from Mummy dinosaur, which thanked us for looking after her egg.  We then decided to write letters back to Mummy dinosaur and see if we could spot the dinosaur in the woods.

After receiving the letter from Mummy dinosaur, it inspired us to find out information about dinosaurs. We used the computers and information books to find out amazing facts. We then wrote our own facts. If you want to know something about dinosaurs then ask Year R.

Over the next few weeks we will be having a dinosaur dig where we will dig for fossils! To dig for fossils you need to be very careful, so we will practise by carefully digging the chocolate chips out of cookies. We will also be using our shape space and measure skills to order dinosaurs by length and weigh them.

A very exciting half term in the Foundation Stage.

A very exciting half term in the Foundation Stage.

During this half term we have been learning all about different types of animals.  We have looked at the structure of these animals and have found out the names of a wide range of different animals and their babies.  We have sorted the animals into different groups, including if they are a carnivore, herbivore and omnivore.

During this topic we have been experimenting with different art techniques and we have produced different animals designs using pastels.  We have also been using clay and have further developed our skills of joining pieces of clay together using silt.

Our learning in maths and literacy has also been linked to our animals topic.  In maths we have been using different stories about animals to help us with problem solving, place value and counting.  In literacy we have been writing different facts about animals and creating animal poems.

It has been a fun, busy and enjoyable term.

Thank you to all the parents and families who have supported their child/ren with the home learning.

During the first half of the Spring term we have been finding out all about Australia from a geographical point of view.  We looked at famous landmarks between the UK and Australia.  We have also learnt about the landscape in both places.

This half term we have been history detectives learning about the lives of Queen Elizabeth the first Queen Victoria, and our present Queen.  We have loved this topic and we used the story of the Queen’s Knickers as a stimulus.  This story has helped us to design and make our own knickers for the Queen.  We have also designed and made a stamp using the art medium of printing with metallic ink.  These are all on display in school if you would like to come and have a look during our Wednesday school drop in’s.

We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all parents and families who have helped their child with their home learning.  The posters for Australia were fabulous and we have also enjoyed looking at and sharing the time capsules for the Queens topic.

We have had a busy yet enjoyable term.
