Yorkshire Wildlife Park

The Yorkshire Wildlife Park was the Sunflowers’ and Daffodils’ first BIG school trip. Come rain or shine they always had a smile on their face. The children saw lots of animals and found out some wonderful facts! It really was an amazing adventure.

Yum, Yum, Yum!

The Daisies have loved experiencing the Indian culture, especially trying the tasty Indian food. We pretended that we were in an Indian restaurant.

Kingfisher Tuesdays!

Our favourite day is Tuesday in the Daisies and this is because we get to visit the Kingfishers! We had so much fun joining in the magic mile. We even had time for some refreshments after all our hard work!

Watch me grow!

 

The Sunflowers and Daffodils loved having the chicks in the Foundation Stage Unit. They were amazed by the life cycle of a hen and thought it was magical when the eggs hatched! All of the children were fantastic at looking after the chicks. We are so kind and caring in FS2!

Jack and the Beanstalk

The children have been retelling the story of Jack and the Beanstalk using pictures and actions to help them. They investigated what plants need to grow before planting their very own beanstalks, and enjoyed checking them every day to see if they had grown. They then created their own dance all about the life cycle of a plant.

Welcome to the World! 

We have loved watching our chicks hatch in Foundation Stage 2. The children have enjoyed writing their favourite name choices and putting them into a draw. The winning names were: Spiderman, Tig, Rapunzel, Max, Nuna, Cutie and Butterfly-Daisy. The children have been so careful and kind to them, and have completed some wonderful writing all about them.

‘Tour de Birkwood’

The Sunflowers and Daffodils were inspired by the ‘Tour de Yorkshire’. They planned their very own ‘Tour de Birkwood’. They made signs for the big race and then took part in competing against each other by racing on our bikes. They had so much fun!

A Visit to our Local Shop 

The Sunflowers and Daffodils have been learning all about money. They have looked at different coins, and talked about the value of them. They had 50p each to take to the local shop to spend on a treat of their choice. They used their problem solving skills to work out which treats they could afford! They are super shoppers!

Superstar Alert 

This Daisy is AMAZING! She is fantastic at listening for first sounds. She drew her own tooth, used excellent cutting skills and then told me that it begins with the ‘t’ and practised saying the pure sound perfectly.
