Good morning  Ducklings

How was your VE day? I’d love to see how you celebrated if you can upload your pictures onto Tapestry. We decorated our house with some bunting that Finn made and had a few people sitting on their front doorsteps enjoying tea and scones on our street.

We are still missing you all and wait for advice as to how we can safely return to school. Until then, keep in touch via Tapestry and if you are not sure about how to use everything please do get in touch with the office.

Hi Ducklings

There has been some wonderful learning going on at home, we love seeing what you have been up to and look like you are enjoying the ‘Hungry Caterpillar’ topic.

I will have a go at sharing some of the pictures on here this week when I have had a look through them all!

There are some more learning challenges for this week and some topic ideas for you to try over the next few weeks on the closures section and on our curriculum section.

Have a go at what you can, it is tricky at home as your parents may be busy trying to work too. If you can try something independently and surprise them with something kind, you can all draw lovely pictures and give them a hug or a smile!

Morning Ducklings! We are missing you all.

We hope you are all ok and managed to have fun over Easter. We have loved seeing what you have all been doing on Tapestry, please keep adding to it. We could see lots of you have been having Easter egg hunts, flying rockets, making dens, exploring numbers and letters,  cooking and lots of outdoor fun in the sun!

We have some new ideas for you to try this term as we would have been learning all about ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ in school, I have put some learning ideas together for you to have a go at, there is a link to this on the Closures section and the curriculum information for Ducklings.


Easter Ideas

As its now officially our Easter Holidays and unfortunately no one is going anywhere, here are a few ideas for easter activities if you’d like to try them. Post some pictures on Tapestry and we will try to look at them when we can.

TOILET PAPER ROLL BUNNY 🐰- such a cute Easter craft for kids! Great for preschool or kindergarten.

Use rolled-up paper to make the tube or loo roll tubes (if you have any!) Children could draw the eyes on and use strips of paper/card/painted spaghetti if you don’t have pipe cleaners.


Explore folding up paper to make these bunny pouches, children could fill them with clues for an egg hunt.

Have some fun with paint to create these chick hand puppets and fingerprints that you could make into a card.

Monday 30th March.

Hello Ducklings! Mrs Jenkinson, Miss Moore and I are missing you all. We hope you are all safe and happy after your first week at home. We hope you are looking after your family and being very helpful. We know how good you are at tidying up and getting the table ready for snack!

We have all enjoyed looking at what you have been doing at home when your parents have put it on Tapestry.  Verity has made her own Peter Pointer, Isla has made a fabulous giraffe and Nancy counted the cars going past when she was on her daily walk. Keep them coming!

I have been busy helping my own children, Bethan and Finn, with their learning, baking cakes and enjoying the sunshine while planting some seeds last week. Miss Moore has been mowing the lawn and walking her dog, Max. Mrs Jenkinson has been gardening and has cleaned all her windows!

Just in case you didn’t get your home learning pack or you would like more ideas I have put some suggestions on the main website under ‘School Closure – EYFS home learning’
