We have chosen books by Bill Martin Jr for our story times this week. The children have loved joining in with the repetitive text and predicting which animal will be next. We have voted for our favourite stories and here are a few that scored very highly!
This week our books arrived from bookstart. Mrs Simpson came to FS2 and read the children one of her favourite stories and presented the books. The children were so excited - another book to add to our collections! They couldn't wait to take them home and open them.
The children were so excited about the non-uniform day. Our classrooms look so different without the usual 'blue jumpers!' Thank you to all the parents and carers who have provided buns for the 'coffee afternoon', you have been very generous!
In Foundation Stage we love story time. The children love to get settled down and listen to a story. We have at least 2 stories every day, often more. The children have been voting for their favourite stories and are beginning to give reasons for their choices.
These are some of our favourites from this week.
The children have been so excited with our new voting system. They have used one cube each to show which book they liked the best.
This week was a really big week for us in FS2. The children all met each other and the classrooms seemed very full with 30 children! The children have experienced many new activities indoors and outdoors. We have started our phonics and introduced the first 5 sounds. The children love to take part in our 'Fred talk' and are getting really good at blending sounds together, eg. b-u-s bus!
We have taken some 'busy' photos to show you.
We would like to say a big welcome to all our new families. Thank you for choosing High View for your child.
The children looked so smart in their new school uniforms and were very proud to be wearing them. We are looking forward to getting to know you all better and working with you and your child.
We would like to say a big thank you to all the parents and carers who have supported us this year. We will miss you and the children but we think they are definitely ready for year 1!
A team of police officers visited us today. It was so exciting! We looked at different vehicles including a motorbike and an armed response vehicle. PC Needham told us all about his job and answered the many questions that the children asked. I think we could have kept them busy all day, the children were so interested and had so many questions.
We watched 3 different police dogs doing a variety of 'jobs'. They are so well trained and the children were spellbound watching them. It has been a fabulous morning!
The children in FS all completed the race for life, along with some of the adults as well. They did 2 laps of the school field which is a long way for short legs! We all had a real sense of achievement when we had done!
We are always very busy in FS2! We want our children to have fun whilst also becoming independent learners.
