Foundation Stage

To You All


It has been lovely to welcome you all back after the half-term break. The children have been very eagerly telling me what they got up to during the break and this has inspired some writing.


Last week we looked Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot. The children had fun printing firework pictures and adding glitter (yes the glitter season has begun)!


We have been enjoying the start of the text which we are studying this term, No Dinner by Jessica Souhami who is a shadow puppeteer. This leads nicely into our topic for this term, Light, Dark and Colour and we will be making our own shadow puppets later in the term. The text is set in a forest within the Indian Sub-Continent and we had great fun acting out the beginning of the story during our woodland learning session last Friday. The children produced some very scary wolves and some very scared old ladies.


This week we will be looking at the importance of the poppy when we are thinking about remembrance and the children will be making poppies using all sorts of media to create a remembrance display. We will also be looking at Children in Need and completing some associated activities including the Joe Wicks Five to Thrive. I hope that you will hear some more from your children as we continue to enjoy studying No Dinner.


Kind regards

Mrs Sheppard
