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.

World book day

Thank you  for all the fabulous costumes, Class 1 enjoyed sharing books with older children in the school.

Three Little Pigs

This term's topic will be based around construction, in line with the whole school Design and Technology theme.  Linked with this theme, in literacy we have begun learning the story of the three little pigs, children have enjoyed acting out the story with puppets. We will be developing our own versions of the story as well as exploring materials to build houses.

How did the dinosaurs die?

What happened to make the dinosaurs extinct? Most scientists agree a huge meteorite hit the earth; could this have caused a huge shock wave with floods and erupting volcanos following? The dinosaurs may not have all disappeared quickly but over many years the earth's environment no longer supported their survival.

So what does it look like when a volcano erupts? We watched a video clip then created our own eruption by making a chemical reaction.

How long were the dinosaurs?

We have been measuring out on the playground how long different types of dinosaurs were.  Diplodocus were the longest, around 25 metres.  Triceratops were just 8 metres long, still big enough to make us all go 'wow!' 

Move like a dinosaur

In PE we have been exploring how different dinosaurs moved, some were slow and heavy, others may have darted about quickly.  We listened to different pieces of music and thought about which dinosaur it reminded us of, would you glide like a  pterosaur or swim like a plesiosaur, stomp like a diplodocus or run like a raptor? We then used our bodies to show how fossils were made.
