Class RS have been having fun in provision this morning!

Seaside Topic

Enjoying the Bee-Bots🐝

Seaside Topic! 

We have loved out seaside surprise morning! We turned our outdoor classroom into a beach with the sandpit and paddling pools. Then we built an ice-cream van out of large-scale construction materials and enjoyed an ice-cream!

We’re learning about Plants




We have been painting flowers trying to think about each part.

We have used construction materials and loose parts to create flowers including leaves and roots.

We have created plant collages and labelled them using our phonics.

We have enjoyed taking on roles in the home corner garden and Garden Centre and Cafe

We have been drawing plants and writing about them too. Look at these fab plants posters!

We are loving our Minibeast topic! We have enjoyed making caterpillars in the creative area and focusing on different joining techniques. We have made malleable mini-beasts and wrote sentences about them. Take a look at our life cycles head bands too!

We have had great fun making Pizzas! We are learning about Italy and we know that pizzas were invented there. We talked about hygiene when cooking and how to handle equipment safely. Our favourite part was eating them!

Earth Day! We have been learning how to look after our world by recycling. We learnt all about the process of recycling and upcycled a tin can into a pencil pot.

We have had a wonderful first week back in school! Take a look at some things we have been up to...

We enjoyed using the laptops this morning. We practised logging onto the school system and using drag and drop.💻

Christmas Fun

We have made some elves!

We love our new Christmas additions to the home corner. We have been pretending its Christmas Eve and whilst everyone sleeps Santa has dropped presents off!

We worked together in little teams to print our hands and create big Christmas trees. We loved adding sequin decorations and stars to the top. We've used them to decorate our classrooms and the school hall.

We have been painting Father Christmas!

We have been making some Christmas cards and doing some careful and neat colouring.

We have been busy practising out cutting skills to make a Santa craft!

We have enjoyed printing our own wrapping paper with colour and shape patterns.

Lego Christmas Creations - we used Lego to make christmas trees, stockings, snow men and reindeer. Really careful work everyone!

We have a post office, sorting office, post van and doors for delivery in our new role play area! We have loved pretending to drop off parcels, buy stamps and Christmas wrapping, sort the envelopes, load up the van and deliver through the letter boxes.

Santa Dash

We had so much fun wearing our sports gear and christmas accessories. We were very excited to run around the running track as many times as we could to raise money for our school. We kept on trying even when we were tired, encouraged each other and were so proud of ourselves at the end. Well done everyone!


The children have enjoyed creating and painting some of the Nativity characters. Below you can see two wise men and Mary. How lovely and detailed!

The children have been following instructions carefully to draw characters from the Nativity story. How amazing are these ones below?

We have been using number to help us visualise each number. We were very excited to use the GIANT numicon pieces! We focussed specifically on which numbers come before after and inbetween other numbers when in order.
