FS2 - Emerald

Dear parents, carers and children,


We have had a fantastic first term at school! We have made lots of new friends and have taken part in lots of fun learning activities.

We have had fire safety training, a visit from an author, a teddy bear's picnic and lots more!

Please check here regularly to see photos of the children at work!

Meet the Team!

When I grow up I want to be . . . 


During the children's play they started to talk about what they wanted to be when they grow up.  

If you go down to the woods today . . .

The children had a picnic in the Sensory Garden with their teddy bears. The children made chocolate caterpillar cakes to munch on with their cuddly friends. It was so much fun!

We are so proud of ourselves because we got changed and ready for PE.

We had a really fun lesson in the hall playing the bean warm-up game and doing a space and monkey dance.

Miss Horton said that we are all superheroes!

The Importance of Play

‘Play underpins the EYFS. It also underpins learning and all aspects of children's development. Through play, children develop language skills, their emotions and creativity, social and intellectual skills. For most children their play is natural and spontaneous although some children may need extra help from adults.’

Early Years Matters


Play is a crucial part of children’s development. They can learn so much through quality play. It may seem like they are ‘only playing’ but to them they are making sense of the world around them and learning and developing new skills. Therefore, it is important that they have a number of opportunities throughout their day to engage in play.


Caterpillar Crazy!

Today the children found a HUGE caterpillar in the outside area. We gently caught it and put it into our magnifier so that we could take a better look.

We researched the caterpillar on the internet and found out that it is a Privet Hawk-moth.
