What we have been up to...

Run, Run as fast as you can...you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man!

This week the children have made some fabulous boats to help the gingerbread man to cross the river. They had lots of different features that the children thought of such as a fishing rod, window to see the fish and sharks, flags, and a comfy bed and chair. The children then wrote a sentence to the gingerbread man to say why their boat is the best boat…there were some very persuasive messages. We then had lots of fun testing our boats! We have also made and decorated our own Gingerbread people...yum!

When Goldilocks went to the house of the bears...

This week we have been reading Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. We have learned different versions of the story; in one book Daddy Bear’s porridge was too hot and in one it was too salty! In Eat your Greens Goldilocks, Goldilocks said sorry to the bears and they gave her a big bowl of chicken casserole! We have ordered the bears by size and made beds for the bears! We have been exploring porridge in the messy area and the children have all prepared a full bowl of oats for daddy bear, a half full bowl for mummy bear and poor baby bear had an empty bowl! We tried different flavoured porridge then voted for our favourite some children who thought they didn't like porridge discovered that they did after all. We discovered a different way to cook and eat oats too when we made flapjack...yum!

Visiting the Mobile Library. 

The mobile library comes to Beeford every other Thursday. We are very lucky to be able to visit the library to listen to a story and then choose our own book to borrow. 

We know how to look after our teeth!

This week we have been so lucky to have had a visit from Tracey a Dental nurse. She brought Dipsey the Dinosaur to see us too and he is having a little holiday with us in our FSU! Tracey told us how to brush our teeth. She told us to make sure we use a pea sized amount of toothpaste and that we should be using grown up toothpaste now and shouldn’t be rinsing with water. We read the book “My wobbly tooth must never ever fall out”. We then discovered that Dipsey had lost a tooth and because he doesn’t have a pillow he left his tooth outside! We went on a hunt outside to see if the Tooth Fairy had been to leave some money for Dipsey and found all sorts of silver and bronze coins. We have also been cleaning giant teeth in the water tray. We have dressed up as dentists and booked patients in to the reception ready to be treated. We have also rescued the letter teeth from the sugar!

What we did in 2017-18...

Piglets Adventure Farm Trip

For our end of year trip we took the F2 children to Piglets Adventure Farm. We had lots of fun planting seeds, playing a fruit and vegetable game. We fed and stroked the animals, played on the play equipment, played in the play farm and we even went on the tractor ride! We had a brilliant day and all of the children were very well behaved. 

Kites!

This week we have been enjoying the lovely sunshine in our outdoor area. We had lots of fun making our own kites and also enjoyed testing them out.

Pirate Party!

Our FSU children have been trying hard in order to practise tidying up. As the children have done so well we had a pirate and princess party in order to reward the children for their hard work.
We have made wraps, walked the plank, looked for treasure, dancing and we also we had a pirate and princess tea party.

We Pretended To Be Frogs On The Big Field

Pond Dipping Afternoon

We had such a fantastic afternoon pond dipping. We saw tadpoles, snails etc. Afterwards we recorded what we saw. We also had lots of fun pretending to be frogs and playing frog and spoon races. We love the 'Oi Frog story!
