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.

Did someone call the police?

We had such an exciting morning today! I read the children Supertato, a story about a super hero potato who helps to catch the evil pea. A pea had been up to lots of mischief in the story and when Miss Hill was getting our snacks ready she saw someone had drawn on our oranges! It must have been the evil pea! We quickly decided that we needed to call the police and they arrived so quickly in their big van with flashing lights and siren. 
The children loved looking round the van and trying on hats and shields. PCSO Richard Conner then read the children a story all about PC Ben. 
We decided that police are definitely superheroes because they help us when we are in trouble and they help to keep us safe. 

Our feathered friends

The children loved the idea of making funky bird feeders for the garden today; there was lots of careful cutting and some colourful perches created!  Some children also had a go at making their own bird with feathers and clay and then. naming them; there was Fluffy and Strokey - to name but a few!  Decorating designer Forest School glasses was a popular (and relaxing) activity too!

Birthday celebrations 

We had fun today celebrating my birthday! Mrs Mulcahy brought in cake for us all and party poppers. The chocolate cake was enjoyed very much by all! The children had also made me a very special birthday card with a little help from Miss Hill. Thought you would like to see some photos of chocolatey faces.

Our first superhero visit

This morning Alice’s Grandma came in to tell us all about farming. We thought a farmer was a great superhero to start the term with because they provide food for us to eat!

We learned all about wheat, barley, rapeseed and that cows love to eat corn and broad beans. The children were really interested to find out more about what grows on a farm and what different animals like to eat. A massive thank you to Alice’s Grandma for coming in and leaving us with different plants to look at activities to complete. We all had a fab morning.

Falcons surprise 

We were so lucky this afternoon, whilst out in the garden playing we spotted smoke in the Rec. Then we heard a plane and saw 8 parachutes high in the sky so we ran out to the park and they flew right over our heads! It was such a lovely surprise and the children were so excited!
