Welcome to Front Lawn's Early Years!

 

Nursery is Cherry class and Pre-School is Hazel Class. Please come and see us if you have any queries, concerns or suggestions. Our aim is to support the children on their learning journey and make coming to Front Lawn as fun as possible! Please provide a change of clothing as we do love to get messy! We share observations with you through videos and photos on Tapestry so that you can always see your child's learning journal. Do not hesitate to ask Miss Feaver if you have any questions about Tapestry.

Bear Hunt!

 

We're joining in on a Bear Hunt! Will you join us too? Put a teddy in your window and then during daily walks it gives us something to look for, to count, and to find our favourites! You can then remember what they look like and draw them at home!

Here are some ideas of activities that you can do at home

Rainbows

 

Give everyone something to smile about as they go about their daily walks and draw beautiful rainbow pictures that you can put up in your windows at home. This way, when you go on your walks, you can count how many you see and point out your favourites! Have a look below to see our school rainbow. Don't forget to put your rainbow pictures on Tapestry for us to enjoy too!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

 

We are learning the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar in Pre-School. Ask your child to act out the story map at home. They're getting very good at it! Keep an eye on our pictures below because we have new friends in our classroom! Caterpillars! We will take lots of pictures at different stages of the caterpillar life cycle until they turn into beautiful butterflies!

Look how much we wriggle!

Makaton

 

Don't forget to keep an eye on this section for Makation signs and symbols that you can learn at home alongside your child learning them at nursery.

Funky Fingers

 

We will also keep updating this section with our Funky Finger activities that you can use for ideas to do at home.

Reading

 

In Pre-School and Nursery, the children have access to books in all of our areas as well as dedicated comfortable reading areas. Please see the photos below. Don't forget that your child has access to a book lending system where they can take a book home to read and then bring it back once they've finished and swap it over.

Parent Pride

 

We have a Parent Pride board outside both Pre-School and Nursery. Please free feel to add anything to it at anytime! We'd love to hear anything that you're proud about!

Pancake Day

 

On Pancake Day, Nursery and Pre-School joined with Year R in the hall to watch a demonstration as to how we make pancakes! We then loved decorating our pancakes with lots of yummy things. They were so delicious! Don't forget that if you make them at home, please take photos to show us on Tapestry!

Spring

 

To celebrate the arrival of spring, Mrs Lovelock surprised us with Daffodil bulbs! We made sure that they had enough water and sunshine and it didn't take very long before we saw them bloom into beautiful flowers! They looked so lovely that we came up with the idea of painting them. We used our fingers and even the Daffodils themselves to paint with! Have a look at our wonderful, colourful pictures!

Valentine's Day

 

This year, we celebrated Valentine's Day by making cards for those we love. Our cards read "I love you from my head tomatoes!". We really enjoyed getting messy making them, and we hope that you love them as much as we enjoyed creating them!

Bread Making

 

After our trip to Asda, Pre-School were gifted with the ingredients to make bread. We had so much fun mixing and baking! See if you can make some bread at home too! Your children will be happy to tell you what to do. Don't forget to add pictures of your creations to Tapestry for us to be very jealous of!

The Little Red Hen

 

Pre-School have been reading The Little Red Hen since Christmas. Ask your children to act out the story for you at home! They're very good at it! Pre-School children have been gifted with these books to read at home. Please take photos of them reading and share it with us on Tapestry! We love to see what you've been up to at home!

 

Jasper's Beanstalk

 

Nursery have been reading Jasper's Beanstalk this half term. Ask your child to act out the story for you at home! Add any videos or photos to Tapestry of anything you have been doing at home. We love to see what you've been up to!

 

 

Pre-School's Trip to Asda Bakery

 

Pre-School were invited to Asda bakery to see how bread is made! We have been reading The Little Red Hen who makes bread in the story. Everyone was so excited to go on the minibuses! Nop, the baker at Asda, demonstrated how to make pancakes and showed us all the ingredients to make bread. He even showed us the huge oven that the bread is baked in everyday! We were then lucky enough to be shown how they make pizzas at Asda and it made everyone so hungry! We were taken on a tour around the Asda warehouse which was so big! We were given ingredients to make bread for ourselves back at school.

Topic Book

 

This half term, Nursery have been reading 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear' and learning the actions to our story map. We've been learning about different colours and animals. We can now go into the reading area and read the story by ourselves, even using actions! Have a look at the story map below and see if you can do the actions and story at home!!

Halloween

 

We celebrated all things Halloween! We went to the shops and bought lots and lots of little pumpkins to carve and decorate, Halloween pasta to play with and a treat of Halloween Crisps!!! We carried our own pumpkins back to school in our huge pushchair! We loved dressing up on Friday! We all looked fantastic!

Music Bugs

 

In Music Bugs, we did everything under the sea! We played with shark, fish and crab puppets and sung songs for each including Baby Shark and Once I Caught A Fish Alive. We also loved singing Under The Sea whilst being underneath our own 'sea' of wavy material and lots of bubbles were involved of course!

Healthy Eating

 

We talked about healthy eating this week. We went to the shops and chose our favourite healthy foods to eat for snack including grapes, strawberries and cucumber. We really enjoyed this and will be taking more regular trips to the shops to pick our own!

Powder Paint in the Rain

 

It rained lots and lots! As much as we loved looking at it through the windows, we really, really enjoyed splashing about in the rain with all the puddles! We threw powder paint in the water and watched as the colours floated downstream, causing a multi-coloured puddle at the bottom!!

 

 

Forest School

 

We had Forest School with Mrs Payne. We put up a tent and played games! We loved looking through the windows at each other!

Shape Hunt

 

We went on a shape hunt! We searched high and low for circles, squares, rectangles and triangles. Please put any on Tapestry that you find together at home or out and about. We'd love to see!

Music Bugs!

 

We had a lovely visit from Music Bugs who will be visiting us every week! We really enjoyed singing and dancing!
