Home learning - Growing beans.
It has been a pleasure seeing your pictures of growing beans through Tapestry. I understand that some are not growing at all. This is absolutely fine. This would be a great opportunity to discuss perhaps why it did not grow, or why it grew and then stopped growing.
Please could you bring in a photo/s and diary of your child's bean on Monday 11th February.
Home learning - Outfits and catwalk.
Children's outfits are due in. Please could they be in by Monday 11th February. The catwalk is on Thursday 14th February at 2pm.
Welcome to our Foundation Stage Unit
Take a look at the pictures of our unit.
Magical Maths Morning
Thank you to all parents who stayed this morning to explore our magical maths activities. We hope this was useful. If you missed out on our Magical Maths Morning today and would like another morning exploring maths in Early Years, please see myself or Miss Scarlett.
Thank you again for all your support.
Oh What a Knight!
Our new project as started and the children were very excited to see a castle appear in the classroom with a note left by someone, but we don't know who!
Please see below parent information about our new project including home learning!
The children had a wonderful time visiting Odiham castle. There was a letter that was left for us in the middle of the castle and we found a shoe lace and a ripped piece of material.
The letter said Charlie the Knight and Princess Elizabeth needed out help to make new shoes for Charlie as his shoe broke and and a new dress Princess Elizabeth's dress was burnt by George the Giant's pet dragon.
When we got back from visiting the castle, we started designing shoes and dresses.

We will also be sending home a song and rhyme book. Each week we will send a new rhyme or song home for you to read/sing together with your child. If you wish you can upload a video of your child singing or reading the rhymes onto Tapestry. We would love to see them.
