Getting ready for our new topic next half term, 'we do like to be beside the seaside'. KS1 spent the afternoon making their very own beach.
On Wednesday 18th April we were lucky enough to have a variety of farm animals visit school, in the morning, to kick start our new farming topic. All the children enjoyed being able to get up close and interact with the animals. Thank you to Bobby and his family, and Mrs Smith for bringing them in. In the afternoon we had a visit from Pecks with their tractors.
Spring Term 2018
Look what fun we have had starting our pirates topic!
Spring Term 2017
To kick start out new theme, ‘it’s a creepy world’ we had a very exciting mini beast hunt down the common. We looked for habitats that we thought the mini beasts might like to live in and used magnifying glasses to have a really good look at them. We found a lovely selection of different beasts!
Healthy lifestyles week: January 2017
During healthy lifestyles week we enjoyed making some vegetable kebabs, humous and a cucumber and yoghurt dip. We had to peel and chop the vegetables and wait for them to cook! Lots of us tried some new vegetables and found out that we really liked them!
Build it morning! January 2017
To kick start our new theme…Can we build it? Yes we can!... we had a building morning where we worked in groups to create a model. There was lots of good team work and discussions about what to build and how to build it. We had to cut, stick and twist lots of resources. At the end of the morning we all stood up and spoke about what we had made, how we made it and if there was anything we could cage to make our model better next time.
Autumn Term 2016
Hedgehog foundation stage children have had a good start to their year at Ashbeach. We have been very busy exploring the classroom and outside area.
Summer Term 2016
Spring Term 2016
We have continued with our Forest school sessions this half term and have enjoyed being more imaginative whilst playing. We incorporated our in class learning about the story of ‘Super worm’ and decided to build traps for the evil lizard and crow who tried to steal Super worm! We even found our very own super worm families!
We have very much enjoyed hatching some chicks in Hedgehog class. there was great excitement when the first egg showed shines of hatching and before we knew it we had eight healthy and noisy chicks. We have been learning about how to look after them and have helped change their food and water every day. We had even learnt about the life cycle of the chicks and even had ago at measuring how tall they were- although they were very wriggly!
On the first day of Spring term we had a surprise visit from a Superhero Called Lightening. She helped us do some superhero training where we had to practise of jumping, balance, running and hiding!
We had a lovely end to the Autumn term with a trip on the Nene Valley railway where we got to meet Santa and a very exciting time being a part of the Lower phase Christmas performance of Hey Ewe!
More Forest school fun! We have enjoyed exploring our natural environment in a variety of ways including building dens, playing imaginative games and using natural resources to make things!
Scooter race- November 2015
We wanted to raise some money towards our school trip so we had a scooter race. Lots of our mummy’s and daddy’s came and cheered us on and they very kindly sponsored us to do laps of the track. It was great fun!
Road safety week
(23-27 November 2015)
During road safety week we talked a lot about how to stay safe whilst walking and riding a bike. We even practiced crossing the road remembering to stop look and listen.
On Monday (09 November) we had our first Forest school session and we were very busy! We were lifting, exploring, swinging, climbing and jumping! We helped our friends to carry long heavy logs and even had a go at climbing some trees!
We have been discussing how we should behaviour when we are at school and have displayed our class rules as a tree. We decided as a class that we will try to: play nicely with our friends, listen and try try try and we will do this by: being kind with our hands and feet, saying kind words, doing things for ourselves, listening to what the adults and our friends are saying and sharing toys. Each child decorated a leaf and put it on our tree.
