F1 - We Are So Proud…!
I can’t even put into words how proud I was of each and every one of our children in Foundation. It was a huge achievement for them, not only to sit facing you in their costumes, but to sing and act too. They are only 3, 4 and 5 years old and they showed such courage and talent. There have been so many stand out moments throughout this process that has made me super proud to be a teacher in Foundation. Then there is you and your generosity in donating raffle prizes, buying tickets and coming to support. You really are fabulous! The Foundation team may have all gained a few grey hairs in the few weeks leading up to the performances, but everyone is worth it! I must also give a big shout out to Mrs P and Mrs Fenton who decorated our tree in the hall. They did a great job, I’m sure you’ll agree!
In other news, F1 have shown so many amazing light bulb moments in their learning this week. I don’t know how their brain managed it with all the Nativity words and songs they had to learn! There have been baubles in the water and the children have been catching them in a sieve and then counting them and finding the digit to match. They have been shouting me over to share what they have done and of course they insisted that I took a photo! There has also been lots of imaginative play in the mud kitchen where Jack made me some soup and Annalise made a cup of tea. They are great chefs! Logan, Sophie and Lexi-Jay found a ball outside that was covered in ice which sparked lots of lovely conversation about Jack Frost, who they had met the week before on Tree-mendous Tuesday. Everything we do in nursery contains a stimulus for discussion, questioning and theorising. We never stop reacting to our environment and learning from it. What a fabulous way to learn!
