8th September 2017

We have enjoyed our first week in Firecrest class. We have been busy exploring our classrooms, the outside meadow space and the atelier. We have experimented with some mark making, dressing up, role-play and baked in the mud kitchen. We have also played in the sand and water. It has been a very busy week.

We were visited today by a fire and rescue team from Hemel Hempstead. They talked to us, showed us their uniforms and safety equipment and answered our questions about how they help us. We were able to look around their fire engine and see the equipment it carries. We also all sprayed the fire hose.

6th October 2016

 

In the last few weeks we have looked at the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, enjoyed celebrating Smartie Bear's Birthday, found out about healthy choices - tasting and feeling fruit and enjoying the book Handa's Surprise.

 

Recently we have been looking at the changes in our environment with the arrival of autumn and much of our learning has been enjoyed outside the classroom in the warm weather.

 

We have built many projects using our drain pipes and we have made our own paint.
