K1: We Play! We Think! We Learn!

Week beginning February 15th

The children in Nursery and K1 looked fantastic on ‘World Language Day’, proudly wearing their national dress or national colours.  We were able to celebrate the variety of cultures and languages we have in our year groups. After the whole school assembly in the Sports Hall, the children were able to take part in a variety of learning experiences, celebrating the many cultures around the world. The children in K1 had the opportunity to visit, Korea, Japan, Egypt, India, Brazil, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Wales and Ireland in our K1 and K2 classrooms and shared areas. The Foundation Stage building was a buzz of excitement as the learning environment was explored, with children from both year groups interacting with one another as they shared activities.

At the Foundation Stage Sports Day the children were amazing! We were so proud of them all! Watching them as they took part in each activity, enthusiasm, and determination were much in evidence! Thank you so much for coming to support your children, we had a wonderful morning! A big ‘thank you’ to Miss Betsy, our P.E teacher, for all she does with our children each week.

In K1 we have been exploring the sense of taste. Some of the children became ‘risk takers’ as they tasted fruits that they had not tried before. Some were pleasantly surprised, discovering that they enjoyed the experience and asked for more! As part of our theme of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears', all of the children tasted three different types of porridge; salty, warm and chocolate flavoured. You can imagine the responses! Most agreed that the porridge was too salty, the warm porridge was too hot and the chocolate flavoured porridge was just right! It was an opportunity for the children to show their reasoning skills. They were encouraged to talk about their likes and dislikes and to explain why. It also highlighted that they were beginning to use the story language they had heard during our story telling sessions. It has been wonderful to hear that some of you have been listening to your children’s versions of the story of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' at home too! Thank you for sharing this with us.


At home during meal times, maybe your children can talk to you about the taste of the food they are eating. Here are some of the words we have been using in K1 when tasting fruit and porridge and eating at lunchtime.


hot, cold, warm, sweet, sour, juicy, spicy, bitter, creamy

We also enjoyed bringing our Teddy Bears to school and sharing a Teddy bears' picnic together. It was a wonderful morning with lots of singing and bear stories being shared.


We hope you enjoy looking at our pictures!
