F2M - Our World and the Creation Story, by Mrs Harris
Date: 25th Sep 2023 @ 8:28pm
This week Mrs McLaren’s F2 class have been thinking about Our World and the Creation story. We created a prayer focus together, lighting our candle and singing our song 'I can pray'.
We also learnt our new song, 'My God is so Big'.
We really enjoyed going on a nature walk around our playground. Whilst we did this we thought about things that God created for us.
We then brought back a leaf and spoke about each leaf being unique, just like us.
The children have also been working hard on their drawing skills. They made rainbows out of different coloured resources, and faces using loose parts play. We have had lots of fun and we are working hard each day.
Keep up the good work F2 ? ? ?

F2 - Mental Health Awareness Week, by Mrs Harris
Date: 20th May 2023 @ 9:34pm
This week is 'Mental Health Awareness Week'. In F2 we have been learning about the different emotions we can feel, what might make us feel these emotions and how it's important to talk about these feelings.
We spoke about what we could do to make ourselves and others happy. The children had some excellent ideas! They said we should...
-Always use kind words
-Ask our friends if they're ok
-Ask others to play a game
-Talk to our grownups if something is upsetting us
The children then made hands with the names of 5 people they could talk to if they ever feel sad or worried. They also drew a picture to show how they were feeling today.
"If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours." ? ??

On Friday our children brought in their teddies. We read a story about a teddy being unkind at a picnic and how his friends forgave him. We then went off and worked together. We spoke about how we show forgiveness to others and how we share and show kindness,
The children had so much fun and were excellent at talking about their feelings. Our teddies had so much fun too and were very well behaved all day.
We also made sandwiches during cooking with the help of our teachers.

Date: 23rd Mar 2023 @ 6:04pm
This week the children enjoyed taking part in a farm experience. We started our day by milking some cows, collecting eggs in the egg run, planting seeds, washing machinery and feeding and looking after our pony.
The children really enjoyed working together and had so much fun exploring the courtyard farm area. The children built a pen for the pony so that it wouldn't escape. They also transported fruit and vegetables to the kitchen where they cooked fresh meals for the farm workers. We all enjoyed using our imagination. It was so much fun working together just like the animals in our story Farmer Duck.

F2K - Enterprise Day, by Miss Kealey
Date: 7th Mar 2023 @ 5:59pm
F2K have enjoyed taking part in Enterprise Day. We decided to create something that would make others smile, whilst also raising some money for our class. The children decided on making cards! They worked as a team to create a range of different card designs. The children then thought about what they would like to spend the money they raise on and created a class spider diagram to show their ideas!
Today we opened our ‘F2 Card and Cake Shop’ - the children enjoyed looking at each other’s designs and choosing a card to take home to their families. We had lots of cards left over so we’ve decided to give these to local care home to share a smile with our wider community.
Excellent work F2!
