Welcome to Wrens!

Take a peek at the exciting things we have been learning about this year!

Term 1

Settling in!

This September we welcomed 13 excited children to “Big School” to be our Wrens class for 2018-2019. Everyone soon settled and became engrossed in their creative and investigating activities. They all enjoy their daily phonics sessions and have soon become confident at recognising and performing the matching actions and some Foundation children have already started to segment and blend their first words! They all love the outside area , especially the water and the sand pit and within a few weeks you would think they had always been here– they know everything and everyone!

Teddy Bears Picnic

This term we have started our Oracy project with other local schools and held our first WOW day. We joined a group of schools at Westmere Primary to take part in activities, watch a Puppet show entitled “The Lost Teddy” and enjoy a Teddy Bears Picnic! We had a lovely time making new friends and learning new vocabulary. Now we are looking forward to seeing everyone again in November!

Let’s go fly a kite

We made our kites in the morning and tried flying them later. Some of us got tangled up but we had a great time and lots of fun. Some of us had never flown a kite before and found it difficult at first but we persevered!!


Bread Making

We have read lots of stories about the Harvest this term including The Enormous Turnip and The Little Red Hen. As part of our English work we have written shopping lists and instructions. Then we had a busy morning following instructions and making bread. It smelt so good in the classroom and made everyone very hungry!


Harvest Festival

Our first performance for our parents ! We practised hard, learnt all our words and joined in enthusiastically on the day with the songs. We all tried our best and made the EYFS team very proud of us.


Shared Curriculum

We were really excited to see our friends from Playgroup. They came to visit us at school with their Mums and Dads. We showed the staff our classroom and all the things we have made and been learning about. They thought we had grown taller and become more confident and had settled in well to our new surroundings.
