Welcome to Buccaneers!

In our class we have 20 children in Foundation Stage. Our teacher is Mrs Johnson; Miss Hill is our teaching assistant everyday with Mrs Mulcahy joining us on a Wednesday afternoon. On Monday afternoons we have Forest School with Mrs Rae.

In the Buccaneers we love to learn! We have created a a learning environment that encourages the children to practice new skills, play with friends, explore and develop ideas and most importantly have fun. We have a fabulous garden which we use as much as we can. The children have a mud kitchen which they use to make wonderful creations, leaf soup, mud chilli and my favourite hot chocolate! We also have a great tyre sand pit, water area, bikes and gardening area which the children enjoy planting seeds, bulbs and watching their plants grow.

Children's social, emotional, physical and communication skills are are supported in conjunction with the teaching of  reading, writing and maths. Our curriculum ensures that children's individual needs are met and they are given the best opportunity to develop and grow in a safe and inspiring environment. We support the children in developing the skills they need to build firm foundations that will help them as they progress on their learning journey.

Working together

It was lovely to see the children encouraging each other to try new things and to learn new skills - from sawing to balancing to playing noughts and crosses.  
The leaf masks were popular - as was sawing a tree cookie to add wooden diggers to.

The children enjoyed campfire pancakes and freshly foraged blackberries😋

Another First: Forest School

It was a lovely afternoon getting to know the Buccaneers; we talked about how to keep ourselves and each other safe at Forest School before going off to explore.  The children enjoyed the swings, lighting miniature fires, sawing and decorating tree cookies, playing in the mud kitchen and pond dipping.  It was lovely to hear the children talking about their experiences; ‘We saw a frog jumping…a REAL frog, JUMPING!!’

Italian and making new friends 

Just a few more pictures for you from our first week. Today we had our first Italian lesson. The children were amazing, they all sat and listened so well. 
we are so proud of them all, they have settled so well and have all got used to their new routines. It’s been a fab week so far! 

A great first day!

The children have all been amazing today. They all settled straight in this morning and have all really enjoyed exploring and seeing what there is to play with. The lovely weather has meant we have been able to enjoy our garden and have lots of fun getting to know each other.

Splashing about in the river!

We needed to cool off yesterday in the heat so we filled our river and took off our socks and shoes for a splash about! For a special end of year treat we also had some ice cream!

Thank you all for an amazing year, even the home schooling! Have a wonderful summer everyone.

Mrs Johnson, Miss Hill and Mrs Mulcahy
