Our Early Years Foundation Stage children have been busy exploring the different areas of learning. Have a look at what each class was up to during the week as indicated below.
What do T-Rex and Triceratops eat when they are super hungry? Meat, trees, grass and stones. They stomp and march with large feet and rest in their nests when tired. Where do baby dinosaurs come from? From mummies or from eggs? With hats and magnifying glasses – off we go hunting for Dino eggs… Dino eggs in the making - mix some flour, salt, soil and water and Voila! Do dinosaurs brush their teeth and take a bath?
Down at the school pond, what did we see? Quack quack ducks.
Little ducks splashing in the water. Quack said a duck and off they all went flapping their wings. Waddle, waddle, waddle to and fro as the children run behind them, collecting feathers from everywhere. Washing the feathers to make them clean but How lucky are ducks to have such a water proof coat. If I had a water proof coat…

Let’s give the baby a bath - the baby’s hair is so soft – How does your hair feel? Some of our favourite hairstyles - long, short, curly, shaved, afro, plaited. Most girls like long hair, what do boys like? Eating healthy foods and oiling our hair makes them grow long and strong. Blow-dryers make a sound when switched on – what does it sound like? A vacuum cleaner, a blender or a car engine?

A torch with batteries in the woodlands which is almost going off. Is it bright, dim, faint, or dark? What can we do for the torch to give out a brighter light? What if the torch refuses to light? Let’s go think! Look! A Cafe! Please may I have some tea in a big mug for mummy, middle sized mug for the sister and a small mug for my baby? Some rectangle shaped cookies would be good too!

Westlands, Kileleshwa, Lavington and South B – some of the names of places where we live. L..l..l..lions live in a d – e- n. Cartons, sticks, stones, scarves and twigs – let’s make a den for the Lazy Lion. Lions are from the ‘Cat Family,’ which other animals belong to this family?
