Sports Day 2015

On a beautifully warm Thursday afternoon, we held our annual Sports Day for children in our Butterfly and Caterpillar PE groups.  

 

The event was fantastically supported by Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Aunties and Siblings who cheered enthusiastically as the children participated in an afternoon of races.  Jodie, our Sports Day organisor, arranged races including the following:

* Running

* Beanbag

* Water

* Jelly

* Egg and Spoon

and.......'Grown Ups' races!!

 

After the races, families joined us in the front garden for refresehments including drinks, cakes, biscuits and strawberries and cream.  Thanks go to Haygrove Fruit who kindly supply us with strawberries every year for this event.  Thanks to the generosity of our families, we raised over £55.

 

Here are some photos of our afternoon.

Visit from Andy Lee Transport

This week, we are thinking all about transport and were lucky enough to have a lorry cab visit. Thank you to Andy Lee Transport for sparing the cab and driver for our children to have such a wonderful experience this morning.

 

The children were able to explore the cab if they wanted to, where they found a bed, television, radio and lots of knobs, switches and buttons which they asked questions about including:

"what's that?"

"how does that work?"

"why is there a bed?"

"is that the gearstick?"

 

We were very surprised to see how big the wheels were - they were even taller than some of the children!

 

Below, you can find some photos from our fabulous morning.

Minibeast Walk

 This afternoon, we enjoyed a marvellous minibeast hunt around the school field which was a fantastic end to this half term.

Here we are all ready to go!

 

The children were fascinated with the holes in the hedge at the bottom of the field.

Hedgehog Rescue

This morning, we discovered a hedgehog in the Forest School area.  Unfortunately, the hedgehog was looking a little poorly so we contacted Leadon Vale vets for advice.  They told us that we could tkae the hedgehog in for them to look at and then it would be sent to a rescue centre where they are better equipped to help it.

Welly Walk

Between showers this morning, we took a group of children for a welly walk to the stream on New Mills.  At circle time, we had been thinking about the weather with the children commenting on how "rainy and windy" it had been.  We were wondering where all the water goes so decided to investigate outdoors. 

We decided that we needed to wear our wellies and coats in case it started to rain again.  We were all excited to begin our walk!

Bingo!

 

We would like to say a very big thank you to Linda Smith and Sheila Gladwin who organised and ran our Bingo evening at Leadon Bank on Saturday 25th April.  The evening was well attended by the Ledbury community and we raised a fantastic total of £875.77.

 

A Gorgeous Spring Afternoon

 It was such a lovely afternoon today that we all went down to the Forest School area to play.  We enjoyed digging, building, bug hunting, running, balancing, climbing, singing, playing games and engaging in imaginary play.  Here are some photos of our wonderful afternoon in the sunshine.

Jack in the Beanstalk Fun

 We recently explored the subject of growth and planted some runner beans which quickly led on to an interest in 'Jack in the Beanstalk.'  This really captured the children's imagination and we were impressed with how they incorporated the book in to their play.  We saw some fabulous creations which the children built using both small and large wooden blocks, Duplo, Lego, pegs and peg board and tree stumps.  We used the opportunity to encourage the children to build on their mathematical language by using vocabularly such as:

* Big/bigger/biggest

* Small/smaller/smallest

* Tall/taller/tallest

* Short/shorter/shortest

* More/less/extra/add/take away

 

We also used positional language including behind/on top/next to/under etc.

 

We measured and recorded the growth of beanstalks grown in jam jars so we could see the roots and shoots appear.  

 

Here are some photos of the fun we have been having:
