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 Tuesday 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.
The Very Hopeless Camel
Quite the opposite of hopeless! We are all so very proud of our youngest children for putting on their very own Nativity, with several songs and lots of lines and moves to learn. Well done everybody, and well done to Mrs Johnson and Miss Hill for all their hard work.
Christmas crafts at Cogges Farm
We had a lovely morning at Cogges Farm. The children were very well behaved and all had a go at the different activities. We made wreaths, bakes ginger Welsh cakes, made paper chains and made a very special cracker for Christmas Day. The children learned about all the different Christmas traditions and how they came about.
Letters to Santa
The children worked really hard writing their letters and I’m sure Santa and his Elves will be really impressed with their writing. We then all walked down to the post box to make sure they were posted in time!
Thank you for sending in your stamped envelopes.
Word of the Week
Sorry it's a day late but here is the word of the week for you!
We have been busy writing letters to Santa this week, what are you hopeful for? We've have lots of requests for remote control dinosaurs, I hope Santa and his Elves are ready for our letters!
Looking forward to finding out what hopeful means to you.
Getting ready for Christmas
We had a very exciting morning in our class today, our class elf Melvin arrived! He had set us a challenge to make paper chains as he said our classroom needed decorating! The children were also excited to see our role play area had been turned into Santa’s workshop, the elves had certainly been busy!
