We use the questions the children come up with to inform our planning and enhance our environment. Children also get a chance to research and discover with their parents at home. We gather together all of the pictures, paintings, print outs and drawings and stick them into our ‘Floor Book’ in order to record our learning throughout the year. Some questions may only take a week to explore and others may take longer, the benefit of using this model to inform topics and planning is that EVERYTHING comes from the children.

Christmas fun at Upsy Daisy!

This last half term in EYFS we have been learning all about the nativity story. We looked at how babies grow into adults, why the baby Jesus is so special and we learnt some Christmas carols which we sang at Mytholm Meadows. We have also been practising our own Easy Cheesy Nativity. Thank you all for coming to watch and being a brilliant audience, I think you will all agree that the children did a fabulous job, all of the adults in EYFS were extremely proud!

Throughout December we have had a visitor in our classroom, An Elf! He appeared through a tiny door and has been moving every night since. He hid in our post box, zip lined across the classroom and even tried to join in with our nativity! Silly Elf! The children have enjoyed writing notes to the elf and being elf detectives! We will miss him when he goes home to the North Pole.

In maths we have looked at money, finding the total amount as well as more and less. After the holidays we are going to continue working within 10 and discover measuring!

Have a wonderful Christmas and new year.

We can’t wait to see everyone in 2018!



This half term we will be getting to know our new classroom and friends. We will also have funky fingers sessions, music and dance, art with Mrs Moreland and phonics (starting w/c 25.09.17).
We had a super first day back and have loved exploring all the resources in our classroom. Have you seen our amazing new waterwall?

Thank you for building it Mr Eccles, we love it!
