Foundation trip to Dalby Forest - Thursday 28th June, 2018

Foundation had glorious weather for their trip to Dalby Forest. They met year 5 in the woods to listen to their stories of a water droplet and they searched for minibeasts and looked for life in the streams with nets!

Chinese New Year! 6th February, 2018

The Field mice and Dormice celebrated Chinese New Year in style just before half term with a variety of activities. It was the Year of the Dog this year and they learn all about the race and the order in which the animals finished. They had coloured Lanterns, tried Chinese food, made a dragon outside, received a fortune cookie and used chop sticks. The children also had a role play area made especially to celebrate Chinese New Year! Gung Hei Fat Choi! (That's Chinese for Happy New Year)

Diwali with Dormice and Field Mice

Dormice and Field Mice celebrated Diwali by making burfi sweets and salt dough Rangoli patterns and using the character story masks to act out the story.

Food for the Food Bank

Dormice & Field Mice walked to church to deliver the food they had brought for the food bank. As part of our work on Harvest we thought about where our food came from and how we could help others less fortunate than ourselves.

Gingerbread Men

In Foundation we've been making gingerbread men. Yummy! We've also been designing gingerbread men, and making some from playdough and decorating them.
