Learning Through Play is 'Easypeasy'!

Foundation staff are excited to share a new learning app with parents and families starting on Saturday 26th January. The app will be delivered straight to parents’ mobile phones and then after watching the video, parents can play the game with their children as many times as they like. The games are designed to support the development of language, concentration, bonding and resilience. We are looking forward to hearing how families get on!

Congratulations to our Foundation team on the teeth cleaning observation carried out by Leeds Oral Health Improvement Team. They were delighted with the procedure we use for cleaning teeth in Nursery and Reception and the way the children brush their teeth. Their comments included: 'Perfect!' & 'Absolutely Amazing!' It is great to know our children have a first class experience in all aspects of their care & learning!

National Apple Day!

Rebecca Drinkall

Last week Year 1 went on a trip to the Great Yorkshire Show Ground in Harrogate to celebrate National Apple Day! We had a fantastic day and found out lots about apples! In our first workshop we used cooking skills such as, coring and mixing to make our own apple crumbles. During the second workshop we explored the orchard and tasted lots of different apples including, ‘Dog Snout’ and ‘Red Devil’ - yum! Lastly, we made our very own White Laith apple juice using an apple smasher and an apple press - it was hard work but we all enjoyed it!

Clean teeth, healthy smiles in Nursery!

Today was the first day of our ‘Supervised Tooth Brushing scheme’. All the children were excited to try out their new tooth brushes and most really enjoyed the mild mint fluoride toothpaste. We hope this scheme will support parents when brushing teeth at home and reduce the need for invasive action for tooth decay.

Top tips include:

  • Brush teeth twice a day, most importantly before bed.

  • Spit out toothpaste, don’t rinse.

  • Visit a dentist regularly.

  • Limit sugar in diet. Eat sugar as part of meals only.

We hope this will help our children have many years of clean teeth and healthy smiles!

Glorious Sunflowers

Nicola Sheerin

What a welcome sight for the start of term! Our sunflowers grew really well over the summer holiday and are now flowering beautifully. Our pumpkins have also grown well and we are looking forward to harvesting them later this term - we hope to make Autumn lanterns and delicious pumpkin soup.

The grass enjoyed the summer sunshine and rain too and we have been busy clearing the cuttings to fill our compost bin! Our winter vegetables have already been sown and we will be planting Christmas-ready potatoes in the next few weeks. It's always busy in the garden!
