Nature Walk

Foundation children went on a nature walk to look for signs of Autumn. We have been learning about the effect of changing seasons on the natural world around us. We explored using our senses and collected lots of materials that we will use in expressive arts and design work.

Library Visit

Year 1 have been to the library this week. We are lucky to have Laceby Library next door to school and Year 1s are making the most of this! Children were able to meet Mrs Wink, learn about the library and choose a book to take home and share with their family. We plan to visit every week to exchange our books and extend our passion for reading.

The children all had a great time and chose some fabulous books.

Field Work

Year 1 went on a field trip around Laceby linking to our Geography and History topics. We used our investigative skills to find homes that linked to our key words such as; detached, semi-detached, bungalow and terraced. We marked out our route on a map so we knew where to go and where key homes to look out for would be based.

Reception - Our first full week

The reception children have been enjoying exploring the learning environment in their first full week at school. Our first topic is 'Marvellous Me' and we have started by learning about ourselves, our friends and families, as well as our homes. We have enjoyed many books this week, to help us learn how to listen attentively and respond to stories. We have been doing lots of maths work, counting, exploring and identifying numbers. We have also started taking part in 'Doh Disco' to help improve our fine motor skills and prepare our fingers for writing. We finished the week with a hook day, where we wore our favourite outfits and shared our favourite books, so that we could work on our personal development by celebrating how fantastic we all are. Everyone has settled in wonderfully!

Daisy New Starters!

We recently welcomed our new children into Daisy class for their first ever day at Stanford School! The children had the opportunity to explore all the different areas of provision inside and outside of the learning environment. The sand area and role play corner proved particularly popular. Look at the fantastic construction taking place outside as well! We completed some self-portraits and went on an adventure to the nature area in the field in the afternoon. We were very proud of everyone's behaviour and teamwork.

Year 1s are Geographers

Today we have been learning how Geographers use aerial photos and maps to locate places. We became Geographers and located our school, some roads, houses, fields, trees and the church on maps and photos of Laceby. We learnt some new vocabulary as well:

locate which means to find
Aerial which means from up above

We had great fun using new skills. Look at our photos. Next week we plan to do some fieldwork and find different houses in Laceby.

Welcoming New Starters

Last week we welcomed all our new starters into Foundation Stage. They have all settled in really well and enjoyed their first two days in school. Parents/Carers were given a welcome bag to help them leave their children. This contained a relaxing lavender bag, a tissue for any tears and a teabag and biscuit to enjoy when they got home to a quiet house. Many said how nice it was to receive these gifts.

Comments included:
“That’s so thoughtful and special.”
“What a lovely thought, thank you.”
“It’s brought tears to my eyes, you’ve thought of everything.”

We hope they continue to do this well in the weeks to come.
