Welcome to Apple Class
Foundation Stage Two
We have collected all our 'apples' so had a treat afternoon. We chose to wear our own clothes, have a disco and eat party food. It was great!
We celebrated French Day by wearing red, white and blue clothes, having a French themed dinner menu and trying to speak lots of French. We did our register in French, sang French songs, learnt how to say numbers and colours in French. Tres bien Apple Class!
Sports week was great fun and we got to try lots of different sports. we started off with gymnastics and we also tried archery, handball, volleyball, yoga and golf. On the final day we all took part in the bouceathon before finishing with sports day. It was a great week. Thank you Mrs Hobson for organising it and thank you to all the providers for teaching us.
We are currently renovating our outside area. So far we have had a canopy fitted and an outside tap thanks to Mr Dunsworth!
We went on a class trip to Green's Windmill where we learnt about how the windmill works, made our own bread buns and played in the science part exploring lots of exciting toys. It was a great trip!
This has been a yummy topic. We have been lucky enough to have lots of help from our parents. Harley's Mummy came in to make Kajar Halwa (carrot pudding), Taher's Mummy made Chapatis which we ate with Ghee and honey, Seb's Mummy sent in spaghetti and meatballs served with parmesan, and Hetty's Mummy made us a Greek Mezze with hummus, lamb koftas, olives, salad, feta, pitta bread and tzatziki. Mrs Dunsworth also taught us some Greek words. Lottie's Mummy gave us a Portuguese feast with lovely food and fresh orange juice. We also tried some exotic fruits with Mrs Smith. We have had an amazing time trying food from around the world and different cultures. We'd like to say a great big thank you for all your help!
We have been learning about different animals this half term. We have been thinking about and investigating mini beasts, jungle animals and pets. Our favourite part was when our pets came in to visit us. We had visits from:
Sadie's dogs Sophie and Sky
Tommy's pony Bubbles
Lottie's Grandma's kittens
Seb's guinea pigs Bunny and Sophie
Etta's Aunty's dog Bella
Evelyn's dog Fern
Hetty's dog Stanley
Lilly's tortoise Humphrey and
Abigail's cat Thornton
William's chicken Feather
We enjoyed showing the rest of the school our Easter bonnets. Don't they look great?
As part of our ongoing learning about Celebrations we went to St Mary's Church to learn about weddings. We have also been reading about Cinderella and doing some great writing too so it supported our Literacy topic as well.
What a super afternoon we had when our Grandparents visited us in Apple Class. We enjoyed playing, painting and making our Cinderella pumpkin coaches.
We have had visits from Southwell Tennis and Lee Cannoville Football. In tennis we practised our racket and ball skills and in football we all had a turn at a speed kick. It was great fun!
We celebrated Bleasby Book Day by dressing up as our favourite book characters. We were also lucky enough to have a visit from a local author, Elizabeth Bagguely. Elizabeth did some drama with us, setting the scene for one of her books and then reading the story to us. It was a super day!
We have been learning about Traditional Tales and as well as doing some wonderful writing we have planted some beans to grow a bean stalk like Jack did and we have made some yummy gingerbread men with the help of our Mummy's - thank you!
To celebrate the end of our Superhero topic we had a superhero day. We all dressed up and did lots of super activities including decorating biscuits, making box models and designing masks.
We were lucky enough to be able to watch the Birds of Prey when they visited school. We saw owls and eagles. They were amazing.
Harley's Mummy came to talk to us about being a Sikh. She shared a story, talked about their beliefs, let us dress up and eat some yummy sweeties. We also did some Bangra dancing. Thank you so much!
Last week we discovered large footprints in the classroom and then we found a dinosaur egg. We looked after it carefully and it hatched! We named our baby dinosaur Strawberry Bomb and took it in turns to feed him and wash him. To our amazement we found another egg. We helped it to hatch in the water. This dinosaur is called Apple Bomb. We have done some super writing abut our dinosaurs including instructions about how to look after them and labels too. We also have played some games on the i-pad all about dinosaurs.
We have been cycling with the help of British Cycling. We started using balance bikes but now most of us can cycle on a pedal bike.
Once we had brought the tree home we enjoyed decorating it along with the rest of the school. We think we did a brilliant job. What an amazing tree!
We really enjoyed our trip to Sherwood Pines. We made bird feeders, followed a reindeer trail where we decorated trees, made houses for the elves, made a stick reindeer and learnt about the different trees in the forest. We also had great fun playing in the parks before choosing Bleasby School's Christmas tree! Thank you to our Mummy helpers!
Thank you to Mrs Elliott and the other mums for helping us with baking. We made yummy cupcakes and had a great time weighing, mixing, spooning, decorating and eating!
We've enjoyed having visits from the Fire Service, the police, Noah's Mummy, a nurse and Dr Smith. Their visits have really brought our learning to life. Thank you!
Holly came to talk to us about being a good friend, and understanding the right and wrong things to do. We talked, listened to stories and played some games too.
Happy Diwali everyone! We celebrated Diwali with the help of Dr Patel.
We had great fun when our parents came to visit.
We all enjoyed using the balance bikes during our charity bike ride.
We learnt about African dancing with Bema. She told us about growing up in West Africa and we thought about famous black people. We had a great time.
We've been having great fun on Wild Wednesdays!
We enjoyed celebrating Ted's 5th birthday with a birthday cake and party music.
