Sound slates!

The children in Reception have all been working very hard to learn their new sounds this week. Well done! Some children found slates in the outdoor area and used chalk to write the letters we have been learning on them. The children were also able to say the sound the letters make! Miss Vickerman and I were very impressed!

Pizza making 🍕 

We have been very busy making pizzas in Foundation Stage this week.

First we needed to wash our hands and put on our aprons, then it was time to begin!

We followed the recipe, adding flour, a pinch of salt and some butter.

We needed to use the rubbing in method to make breadcrumbs before adding the milk.

‘It’s getting sticky now’


We shared the dough equally, Jack counted to check we had enough dough for each of our friends. Then it was time to knead the dough and roll out our pizza base!

Time to add your toppings now children.


Then we needed to be patient and wait for them to cook… mmmmmmmm something smells yummy 😋

Little Red Hen

We have been enjoying The Little Red Hen Story in Foundation Stage. We have looked at some alternative Little Red Hen stories too and the children really like ‘Little Red Hen makes a Pizza’. 

Some of our children have enjoyed making their own animal masks, we have made cats, mice, hens and pigs.


We are hoping to make our own pizzas over the next couple of weeks so watch this space for our pizza making photographs!

Harvest Time

Last week we were learning about harvest time, Tractor Ted explained all about harvest and how the farmers gather their crops before baling the straw and cultivating the fields.

We had some farming experts to share their own stories and experiences of harvest at home on the farm. 

Starting School

Louis was very excited to meet the children. He made lots of new friends on his first day at school.


Mrs McDowall and Miss Young have been very impressed with how quickly children have setttled into our routines. We are looking forward to a very exciting term and year ahead in Foundation Stage!
