Welcome to Buccaneers!

In our class we have 20 children in Foundation Stage. Our teacher is Mrs Johnson; our teaching assistants are Miss Hill in the mornings and Mrs Mulcahy in the afternoons. 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.

New garden area

Miss Hill and I have been busy over the holidays making our garden area an even better place for you all to enjoy. We have replaced the old decking area at the bottom of the garden with a brand new construction area. We will be planting lots of herbs and vegetables in the tyres as part of our Spring into life life topic. We hope you will all have lots of fun this term playing and looking after our new plants as they grow.

Growth art project

In case you were unable to look at the art display this afternoon here are some pictures of it and how it was made.

Our brief was ‘growth’, as we have started to look at Spring and new life we decided to bring some new life back in to an old branch we found in the garden. We used egg cartons and painted them to look like blossom and pine cones dipped in green paint to look like new buds we ave started to see on the trees. 

Easter egg hunt

The children were all very excited this morning because we had a very special visitor, the Easter Bunny! The children all had an egg to find, each with a maths clue to solve first. In exchange for their egg they received a very yummy chocolate bunny treat. 

Easter baking 

We had lots of fun making Easter chocolate nest cakes this morning. We even managed not to eat the mini eggs whilst we were making them!
