Last term was a very busy term. The first two weeks some of our children spent at home as part of the second lockdown. We were all very happy and excited to be back together as a class on Monday 8th March. We have been busy re-establishing school friendships and making the most of our lovely, large outdoor learning area.
We have been recapping our phonics, writing and maths skills using lots of active learning games and we have been making great progress. Our children benefit from small classes and individual attention and so the needs of each child are effectively catered to. This allows us to ensure that all our children are effectively prepared for entry into Year 1 where they continue their learning journey with the same class teacher and staff who know them so well.
In week 5 we took delivery of 10 hen eggs and we excitedly watched them all hatch. We have learnt how to care for our chicks and on the last day of term the chicks were re-homed.
Throughout the term we benefitted from lots of PE with 2 sessions of PE a week. These sessions are taught by specialist coaches allowing the children to really develop their co-ordination and team working skills. We are keen to ensure that our children lead active, healthy lives and we endeavour to make the most of the opportunities we have available to boost our children’s fitness.
Our vicar and other visitors have been very busy conducting worship either through zoom or leading worship outdoors.
In history this term we have been looking at the work of Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. Whilst we could not attend any off-site visits, we were lucky enough to bring the museum to school. With thanks to The Wilson Museum, we were able to borrow a box of artefacts to bring our history learning to life in the classroom. We also had Florence Nightingale come to school at the end of Week 6 to answer our questions about her.
In Term 5, we will be continuing to focus on the individual needs of our children as they enter the final two terms of their EYFS year with us. We will continue to provide as many learning opportunities as possible.
