Ahoy me mateys! It's Pirates and Superheroes for our final topic of the year! The children have started term 6 full of enthusiasm for the topic they chose.
In our final term we are extremely proud of the progress your children have made and we would like to say thank you for your support throughout the year. The children have worked hard to achieve their full potential and we are sure this will give them excellent foundations as they progress into Key Stage One.
We look forward sharing photos of the children's learning very soon.
In the meantime please look at our medium term plan for this term and important information and dates in our curriculum letter.
Fabulous Fifth Term!
We are very excited to be entering our 5th term in reception with our new topic... 'Our Living World'. This topic will allow the children to demonstrate and build on their knowledge of the world around them. At the beginning of the term we are off to Wingham Wildlife Park for a day!
This will give the children the opportunity to show what they will learn through all aspects of the early years curriculum. From writing to art and role play. Our role plays next term will be a vets and a farm shop which we are sure the children will love. We look forward to sharing photos of the learning soon. In the meantime please have a look at the planning for next term.
Fun Filled Fourth Term!
Wow, it's our forth term already and the children's learning behaviours are brilliant.
They've started the new topic 'Traditional Tales' full of excitement and energy.
We look forward to sharing photos of this term soon. In the meantime please have a look at our termly overview and newsletter to gain more information...
Intergalactic Third Term!
The children have launched into the spring term with out of the this world enthusiasm! It's only week 3 and we have already made rockets, written alien names, told stories about our own planets, designed our own aliens and much more. We can't wait to explore even more about our topic 'Space' over the next few weeks. We will be reading some lovely stories with the children, such as; Aliens Love Underpants, The Man on The Moon, Whatever Next and the Dinosaur that Pooped a Planet!
The children have shown brilliant development in their reading skills. This is hugely supported by those parents who spend lots of time sharing books with the children at home.
The children mathematical skills are also developing fantastically and we our now focusing on teen numbers and 1 more and 1 less.
When changing for PE it is evident which children can dress themselves, which they feel very proud of. As it is one of the Early Learning Goals it is really important to support your child by encouraging your child to dress independently.
Please take time to have a look at the lovely photos of children's learning over the last few weeks. More to come soon...
Celebrating Chinese New Year!
The children were thrilled to have one of our fantastic parents come in to tell us all about Chinese New Year.
We learnt about the story of Nian.
After the children enjoyed creating lanterns, masks, gift envelopes, dragons and more. What a fun experience. We loved being part of the celebrations for Chinese New Year 2017!
Super Second Term
The children have relished the opportunities and learning during their second term at school.
The children have finally been able to enjoy our wonderful new outside learning environment! After much anticipation the children's learning has taken off with the new and exciting learning opportunities this provides.
We have been fortunate with the weather and the children have all participated in Forest School activities.
Our PE lessons have been very exciting and we can't wait to carrying them on after our Christmas break.
Our learning this term has centred around 'Changes' and based around the question: "Why do squirrels hide their nuts?" From nature walks, stories and mathematics outside, the children have developed their understanding of the changes that take part in our immediate environment.
The children are performing as the choir at our nativity: "A Miracle in Town". The children's confidence in the rehearsals has been amazing and we can't wait for you to share their success at the performance.
Fabulous First Term
Wow, the children have already nearly completed their first term at school. What a great start to their life at Bromstone. The children are settled, happy and engaged in their learning. This term we have focused on family and friends and the children have demonstrated fantastic knowledge.
What a Wonderful Week!
The children have had a fantastic first week at Bromstone. From all the staff in foundation stage we would like to say a huge thank you to all the children and their parents/carers for helping them settle in so well!
Below you will find some photos of the children's first week.
