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.

PE fun

The children were finally able to have their special PE session today badge it was postponed due to rain! We were very lucky with the weather today though and the sun shone for us. 

Elder threading

After a quick chat about herbs (and the chance to see and smell some different ones) the children were keen to get moving.  Elder threading was VERY popular; the children cut small pieces with the loppers, hollowed them out with a palm drill and then threaded them to make some rather fashionable necklaces!  We came together for rhubarb and custard pancakes which went down a treat!!

Pyjamarama day!

We have a wonderful day in our pj’s! The children were very excited to show off their pj’s and snuggly dressing gowns. We spent some time sharing our favourite books and we had a lucky draw to see which books we would read and listen to. It was really lovely to see the children get excited about books and retell their favourite stories. Thank you to everyone for taking part and raising some money for Book Trust. 

Team work and perseverance

Lots of team work this week; the children worked together to hunt for minibeasts in dark and damp places. They also persevered with firelighting and keeping their fires alight with dry tinder.  There was great excitement when Mr Sutherland and his little pond dipping gang caught a frog and a baby frog - which all the children were keen to see.

Spring walk

This afternoon we enjoyed a lovely Spring walk around the rec and  the story garden. The children all had a checklist of things they needed to find. They had to spot blossom, buds, daffodils, seedlings, birds, insects, a nest and a squirrel. The only one we didn’t find was the elusive squirrel!
