Term 6 was a wonderfully busy and exciting term. Not one day was the same here in Foundation Stage. Our learning is always heavily influenced by the children, the weather and important events that may be happening for our children, our country and around the world!
In term 6 we;
- Had one (or more) water fights to cool us down in the extremely hot weather
- Made freshly squeezed lemonade and enjoyed it in the garden
- Celebrated the Queens Platinum Jubilee, designing and making new knickers for Her Majesty, inspired by the very funny picture book ‘The Queens Knickers’ by Nicholas Allan
- Had tea parties with a greedy Tiger…
- Painted Ice castles and watched how they melted in the sun, discussing the changes water goes through
Went on a school trip to Kent life! We had the most amazing time, meeting the animals, riding the tractor and getting into mischief on the play equipment!
All of these wonderfull learning opportunities provided the children with the inspiration they needed to write, draw and explain their learning to their friends and adults.
The term and the end of Foundation Stage for this cohort was emotionally and vibrantly finished with a whole school celebration, our ‘Cultural Carnival’ day. The children learned how to dance to African Drums, shared food prepared at home and dressed in their finest clothes that celebrated their heritage.
