Treefrogs

Welcome to the Treefrogs’ Class Page.

We are a Foundation Stage class with 30 children. Our Teacher is Miss Eyers (Mrs Mel Eyers-Gibbs)  and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Zoe Farr and Mrs Debs Wilkinson. Our page shows activities that we have been doing each month, which are included in our ongoing ‘Learning Journeys.’

  • Phonics: Trigraphs ‘ear’, ‘air’ and ‘ure’ and consonant blends.
  • Maths: Doubling, halving and sharing
  • Street dance
  • and lots more …

  • We have enjoyed some great Outdoor Learning this term, including our ‘directional and positional language’ walk, where, amongst other things we acted out the story of the ‘3 Billy goats gruff’ on the bridge.
  • The gardening is coming on well, including the planting of herbs, potatoes, carrots and radishes! Mrs Wilkinson is our expert helper. Thank you to the generous parents who have contributed herbs to our collection.

  • The pond has been very exciting – we have seen frogs, frogspawn and  tadpoles. We are looking forward to seeing ‘frog lets’ next term.

We have been amazing during gymnastics sessions this term, working very safely on large apparatus:
