Colour in EYFS 1

We have been exploring colours through a story about magical glasses which allows each day to be a different colour. The children discussed their favourite colour and made their own magical glasses. Look at the fantastic results right here!

Extraordinary Engineering

When do we learn to become engineers? Of course, at West Meadows it all starts in our Nursery! Using our computer, and interactive screen, this young man has already shown tremendous application and an interest in the motor industry. Some fabulous work, really well done!

Goodbye Miss Beever

What can we say? Firstly, good luck. Secondly, we’ll miss you! West Meadows has been extremely fortunate to have had 16 years’ service from Miss Beever, a wonderful professional. She is a credit to herself and family (we’ll look after our Jane) and we couldn’t be prouder that so many of West Meadows’ special qualities will travel so far! A life changing opportunity that Miss Beever couldn’t miss – remember she’ll still be tweeting! Fare thee well – we’ll miss you greatly!

EYFS New Area

What a transformation! We have converted our EYFS Staffroom in to a super new learning area for our youngest stars. The children are able to use the space to work in small, focussed groups. We are delighted with the finished product. Thank you Miss Jones for your design skills – it looks super!

EYFS Scavenger Hunt

Our EYFS 1 Children (both morning & afternoon) welcomed friends and families to see and use our lovely Outdoor Area – ‘Wild Walk.’ Our staff and children absolutely love Outdoor Learning and enjoy devoting school time to a range of exciting activities. We were keen to show how we are able to take educational risks in a safe environment, take part in a Scavenger Hunt and enjoy using some of our science equipment. We had a wonderful family day and we aim to invite our families back to Wild Walk some time soon. Thank you to everyone who attended, special mention to Mrs. Roberts & Miss Beever – our Outdoor Leaders.

Outdoor Learning in EYFS

We had lots of fun mark making in a variety of ways. We used chalk and sticks to make marks on tyres, concrete and in sand and mud. We investigated how far our vehicles could roll down a ramp and created our own Hop Scotch Games.

EYFS 1 Pancakes

EYFS enjoyed a super Pancake Based Day! They loved hearing a collection of stories involving one of their favourite treats and produced some play dough pancakes as they practised flipping them in the shop area. Of course, they loved the tasting (not play dough variety) and chose strawberry jam as their favourite pancake accompaniment.

EYFS 1 PE – Balancing & Jumping

EYFS 1 have been working on their travelling, balancing and jumping skills in PE over the last few weeks. They have been travelling around like different animals they know and even tried to walk round with a bean bag on their head and see how long they could balance it for.  Their favourite part was jumping off the benches without any help at all! Well done everyone!

Pizza Stars

Our EYFS 1 Children made some delicious Pizza! They talked about healthy foods, used the knives to improve chopping skills and tasted a range of vegetables (some of which were new!) They particularly enjoyed the tasting at home and we know that other family members were jealous of the treat! Well done to the families who extended this learning at home – thank you.

Special to EYFS 1

Our EYFS 1 children have been discussing who is special to them. They identified who they like to play with at school and posed for some lovely photographs with their friends. A brilliant Valentines Day shoot – well done everyone!
