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 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.

A slippery visitor

A big thank you to Ruth and her Dad for bringing one of their snakes in on Tuesday. Children in Foundation Stage and Year 1 enjoyed learning about how to take care and look after the snake then everyone had a chance to touch her.  We found that snakes are not actually slippery at  all, they are cold blooded reptiles that are carnivores with scaley skin. 

World book day

Some brilliant and thoughtful costumes for world book day, we have all enjoyed the special activities this week. 

Book week paired reading 

Nightingales enjoyed children coming from other classes at snack time to share a book with them. 

Being Creative and Having Fun

The Nightingales had a lovely time at Forest School on Monday. The (very) muddy Mud Kitchen was very popular, with smoothies and cherry pie being made for the adults to sample (!)

We have also been given some pallets, and the children have been using one of the them as a ladder to climb up the tree - before jumping off! It's great to see the children managing risks like this themselves.

Some children decorated tin cans in preparation for planting, whilst others made rhythm sticks, dragon flies and airplanes.

How long is a dinosaur?

Today the whole school enjoyed a dinosaur 'wow' day. Despite the weather Nightingales went outside this morning to mark out on the playground the length of different dinosaurs using metre rules. The longest dinosaur was the diplodocus.
