Early Years Foundation Stage
Ducklings, Goslings and Cygnets are hatching new ideas and exploring and beginning to learn about the world around them.

Celebrating our Learning!
We had a fantastic time celebrating the learning we have done this half term on China. We were joined by children in the nursery and we spent time making dragons, making masks, Chinese dancing, painting good luck Chinese messages and trying Chinese food.
Our Maths learning this week has been focused on ordering objects based on their length and height. We have been finding things around the classroom to measure and compare.
We have got straight back into the learning in Reception Class this week, starting our topic on 'One Wolrd, One Heart!' We have been discussing the different things we would like to learn about this term and completing some activities on Chinese culture.
1 more and 1 less!
We have spent the last 2 weeks exploring what 1 more and 1 less means. We have been comparing amounts and deciding what more or less looks like and using different maths resources to deepen our understanding of 1 more and 1 less. We have really enjoyed comparing who has more or less chocolate and more or less Christmas presents.
We were lucky enough to have a nurse visit us from Torbay Hospital. She answered our questions about being a nurse and then gave all our teddies a health assessment and helped us bandage up any injuries that they had.
What a great start!
We have all settled in beautifully to life at White Rock School and have been exceptionally busy exploring our new environment. We have enjoyed making new friends and learning in all areas of our new provision.
