In K1, there has been much excitement as some children have explored ‘Under the Sea’. Divers have been ‘swimming’ to see what they can find in the ocean; wearing masks to give them a clearer view! What else can you see in our photos?

We have really enjoyed sharing the things that the children have brought from home in our ‘Group times’. Thank you! They create much discussion and encourage all of the children to develop speaking and listening skills.

Painting pictures.

Making a tickling alien with so many eyes!

The arrival of ‘tadpoles’ in the K1 garden has created much interest. Over the last two weeks the children have spent time around the fish tank observing them closely. With great excitement they have been able to watch them develop and to begin to change. They have become much bigger and now have four legs. The learning around the tadpoles and frogs was extended when a very brave frog made the pirate ship his temporary home. Some children were checking on him daily while he was there!

To go with this focus we have been learning the following song:

         Two Little Speckled Frogs

     Two little speckled frogs,

  Sat on a speckled log

           Eating the most delicious bugs

Yum, yum

      One jumped into the pool

       Where it was nice and cool

              Then there was only one speckled frog

      Glub glub!




Counting Frogs

Matching numbers


Exploring capacity

Making marks

Retelling stories

Constructing and building

Making our own games

Playing in the bubbles

Painting pictures

Cutting, sticking and being creative

Making music and exploring sound


Thank You for taking the time to share these picures with your family.


Mrs Sarah, Miss Kate and Miss Jess
