RA’s Visit to Twycross Zoo!

RA’s Visit to Twycross Zoo!

RA had a fantastic day visiting Twycross Zoo! The excitement had been building for the past couple of weeks and today was finally the day we had all been waiting for! The children were fascinated by all of the animals they saw and showed great enthusiasm as they learnt lots of new facts. We were lucky enough to see lots of animals including giant turtles, zebras, giraffes, elephants, monkeys, gorillas and leopards!

After all the excitement, the children were exhausted. Needless to say the coach back to school was very quiet with lots of sleepy children (and grown-ups)!

A big thank you to the lovely parents who came with us and helped to make the visit such a success!

Mexico comes to Reception at Bierton Road!

The children in Reception at Bierton Road had a fantastic day learning all about life in Mexico! There was lots of excitement as the children showcased their colourful clothes during a fashion show. During the day the children had the opportunity to take part in lots of Mexican themed activities. This included making hats and flags, dancing to Mexican music in the garden and making their own guacamole to eat!

Take a look at some of the fun we had below!

RA’s Journey Around the Eco Park!

RA’s Journey Around the Eco Park!

RA had a fantastic time visiting the Eco Park this morning! Guy talked to us about how people in Australia use sticks and coloured string to help them navigate through the bush. We then had the chance to create our own journey sticks as we visited the different parts of the Eco Park. The children finished off with some free play time in the dragon – Mrs Yeasmin even ended up on the ground! We had such a fun-packed morning!

A big thank you to our fantastic parent helpers who enabled the visit to go ahead.

 

Enjoying the Sun in the EYFS Garden!

Enjoying the Sun in the EYFS Garden!

The children in Reception at Bierton Road had a fun-packed day as they got to enjoy the sunny weather in the garden! Staff have recently re-designed many of the areas in the garden and lots of new resources have been added. There was so much fun and excitement as the children had the opportunity to explore and develop all areas of their learning.

We can’t wait to continue our learning in the garden over the next couple of months!
