  • Friday 24 June 2022 Friday 24th June 2022 This week began with the children listening to the story ‘Commotion in the Ocean’. The children enjoyed identifying the rhyming words in the text and also talking about the different creatures that live in the sea. During continuous provision the children have had the opportunity to create different sea creatures and learn more about the creatures that live beneath the sea. As part of our art work over the last few weeks the children have been creating seaside pictures and this week they finished their project with amazing results.
  • Friday 24 June 2022 24th June 2022 Today the children walked over to the Junior school to take part in a variety of running races. It was lovely to see how they kept to the rules, tried their best, supported each other and how proud they were to receive winning stickers.
  • Friday 24 June 2022 Friday 24th June 2022 What a great day Beetle class had today at sports day with the other children from Westbury infant school. It is always lovely to be part of a whole school event and great that so many parents were able to come and cheer the children on. The event started with the talented toddler race: followed by speedy sprinters, sassy sack racers and joyous javlin throwers. Others took part showing great determination and team work in the three legged race, had fun in the obstacle race and finally finished with the marathon run which turned out to be a half marathon as the leaders lost focus on the course and cut off a massive chunk but they all kept on running to the very end. Next it was the turn of the parents who showed great determination and sportsmanship in the mums and dads sprints. Lots of fun was had by all and we were really fortunate that the weather stayed dry for the whole event.

  • Friday 17 June 2022 Friday 17th June 2022 What a wonderful day we have had exploring The Wild Place in Bristol today. The weather really made us feel like we were on a safari as we navigated our way through the Savanah to see giraffes and zebras, lemurs and meerkats; pygmy goats and weaver birds. The children were amazing at seeking out the shade, keeping their hats on and applying their sun screen frequently. After munching our tasty lunch in a lovely sheltered area, we meandered our way through the treetop canopy down into the woods to search for wolves and bears. And sure enough we saw both! And they were 2 BIG brown furry bears. The children were super detectives and explorers and had a lovely but hot day. Well done Beetle class. I was very proud of how well you behaved and was super pleased that you all decided to come home rather than stay with the animals. A really big Thank you too, to all the lovely parent helpers who came with us today. We couldn't have managed without you.

  • Friday 10 June 2022 Friday 10th June This week we started our new topic ‘At the Seaside’. The children have enjoyed using the large sandpit in the outside area that was recently filled with lots more sand so it feels like the children are at the beach. We set up an ice cream stall in the sand tray and the children have enjoyed pretending to sell ice creams to each other. In the small world area we set up a beach scene so that the children could tell stories about going to the beach.

  • Wednesday 8 June 2022 Trust Exercise This week in our life skills lesson we have been thinking about trust and how we talk to others. We thought about how the words we say can effect people. We talked about how positive words and comments can make us feel. We then took it in turns to lead our friend around an obstacle course whilst they were blind folded. We had to think carefully about what we told them and the instructions they needed to follow. It was important to encourage them well and use positive words to help them stay focused.
