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.

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!

Spring Sunshine

We had an afternoon of beautiful Spring sunshine with the children experimenting with natural paintbrushes, symmetrical pictures and nature crowns.  Some of the boys were ‘mining for diamonds’ and were then keen to saw and create Minecraft diamond pick axe tree cookies to take home.  There was lots of pond dipping and imaginative play in the mud kitchen before we came together for in-season new potatoes and cheese.

Chicken run!

We were very excited this morning because Mrs Mulcahy brought in her hens to show the children. They learned all about the life cycle of a chicken, how chicks grow in the egg and how the hens look after their eggs. We even learned how to catch a runaway chicken as Blossom the hen made a run for it, she wanted to explore our garden and beyond! 
A big thank you to Mrs Mulcahy for coming in on her day off to share her knowledge of caring for hens and for letting us feed and stroke her Silkies. 

A great first week back

The children have really enjoyed playing in the garden this week, we have been so lucky with the weather. They have loved the new construction area. We have also started to plant some herbs in the tyres. The children watered the soil and carefully sowed the seeds, making sure they were covered back over so the birds won’t eat them!

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.
