Down in the EYFS we have loved being super responsible whilst looking after the Tadpoles! We have been learning all about the life cycle of frogs and it has been amazing to watch this life cycle with our very own eyes.
We have observed them daily and have certainly noticed changes weekly! We have also been doing our research to ensure we are providing them with a 5* stay! This has meant having to make posters and signs as well as keeping our voices quiet and calm as to not disturb our guests!
So, more very exciting news with our tadpoles... Most of them are no longer tadpoles and are now froglets, some are even frogs!!🐸
They have a piece of wood in the tank to sit on and they’ve been enjoying it so much!
They can’t wait to come back to school next week and see everyone!
We have some very exciting news to share with you all...our Tadpoles have grown their legs and some have started turning into Froglets!🐸
Traditional Tales- The Three Pigs
We had another fantastic week learning about Traditional Tales. This week we read the story of the Three Pigs. The Big Bad Wolf, 'huffed and puffed' as he tried to blow the pigs houses down! We were not happy with the Wolf so we made lots of signs to try and keep him out of our gardens- "Not by the hair on our chinny, chin, chins we will not let you in!"
We also helped the pigs to rebuild their houses using sticks, straw and bricks! We had a go at some painting and crafting and even tried to see if we could build the pigs a house using pasta and marshmallows! We hope they were pleased with the houses we made for them!
Traditional Tales- The Gingerbread Man
We had a fantastic time learning all about the Gingerbread man! The cheeky fox was up to no good in Acorn and Conker class, we found he had eaten our Gingerbread! We enjoyed retelling the story using our stick puppets, as well as making traps and wanted posters for the fox. Daisy the cow even wrote to us and asked us to help bake her some more Gingerbread to replace the ones the fox ate! Here we are baking her some more!
The children have had a great start to their time at school! We are so impressed with how well they have learnt the school routines including at lunchtimes. They have really enjoyed Sparkle time, where they have been exploring by climbing on the nest and digging in the chip pit! They have also loved cooking up some yummy cakes in the mud kitchen and getting creative in the construction area! We have seen the children demonstrating fantastically our Characteristics of Effective Learning in particular being Active Arnolds and Explorer Ellie's.
