Outdoor Learning

The children have access to the outdoor area where we develop children’s creative ideas through different role-play areas enhanced with quality play equipment. The outdoor learning gives children the platform to learn and explore through all the areas of the Early Years Foundation stage curriculum.

Term 2

The Gruffalo

Our new Talk for Writing story is The Gruffalo. We were all very excited to be able to go to Avonmouth Primary School Cinema to watch the premier of The Gruffalo! We each had a ticket to get in and we had to buy a cup of popcorn using a counter. It was very exciting, and we all had so much fun ... the popcorn was especially delicious!

Term 1

Our first term in Ducklings Class,

What a wonderful first term we have had in Ducklings Class. We have explored Owl Babies and The Little Red Hen in our Talk for Writing sessions which has included investigating the Forest School Area and baking bread. The children have been brilliant, and we are so proud of them. Here are a few pictures of us enjoying our classroom.

The Little Red Hen

Our Talk for Writing story is The Little Red so today Duckings Class all had a go at being the Little Red Hen and made bread. We added the ingredients, kneaded the dough, watched it rise and then baked it in the oven. It smelt delicious when it came out of the oven. We thought it looked soft and fluffy. We all tasted some bread and it was yummy. The children were very happy that their bread tasted like 'real bread'.

Talk for Writing

In our Talk for Writing sessions, we have been telling the story Owl Babies. This week we had a go at innovating the story. We innovated some parts of the story and made 'Reindeer Babies'. We had fun making up new actions and new descriptive words. We then performed to Mrs Peach.
