The Smeds and The Smoos book by Julia Donaldson

In continuous provision the children have been building homes, talking about the shapes that they have used. They have been making planets for The Smeds and The Smoos in the loose parts area and giving some great descriptions. The children have also painted some amazing pictures and designed some funky shoes for the Smoos.


These three boys worked collaboratively across the whole of a day to create this fabulous model pirate ship complete with a plank for pirates’ enemies to walk along.

Balance Bikes

Just before the Easter break Reception had balance bike training. They had a great time, and the instructor was very impressed with their skills. Most children now only need a little bit more practise before they are ready to ride a two-wheel bike without stabilizers!
