Beaumanor Hall – 2022

The children had a wonderful time at Beaumanor Hall exploring their senses.

In Autumn 1, the EYFS children spent time getting to know one another through play. They began learning their set one speed sounds, learned to write these letters too and also began to read simple CVC (consonant vowel consonant) words. The children had fun accessing all the continuous provision activities available.

The year one children have been learning about traditional tales. We used role play and drama to help develop vocabulary and teach the children how to sequence the story. This helped them become confident writers when it was time to put pencil to paper.

This Summer Term we are learning about growing. We shall be planting seeds, learning about The Enormous Turnip and Oliver’s vegetables as well as looking at the beautiful flowers and plants around us. We have looked at measures and worked with numbers up to twenty. We shall be spending lots of time in our new school garden as well as watching ourselves grow as well. To support Mental Health Awareness week we made 3D gardens. Class 1 have  been spotted doing some amazing reading too. The children also completed a Walk-a-thon to raise money for our new school garden and enjoyed a delicious ice cream in the garden as their reward! As a fun afternoons, we were also treated to a drumming session and a dance workshop. What a busy half term!

During the Spring Term we adventured through the world of Fairy Tales, learning about Goldilocks, The Gingerbread Man and Jack and the Beanstalk. We also explored the exciting world around us. The class also celebrated The Chinese New Year, Mother’s Day and raised money for Red Nose Day.
