Mathematics in the Early Years at Kidgate
Throughout the month of December, Kidgate EYFS will be doing the Advent Acts of Kindness. Our first day meant preparing a treat for the wildlife. We can't wait to find out how else we will spread kindness this month!
Our amazing artwork in the style of the sculptor, Andy Goldsworthy! We are very proud of our masterpieces...
We Will Remember Them, Kidgate EYFS, 2020. The children have worked so hard making poppies by jump printing, scissor skills, loose parts and baking poppy biscuits!
We have been learning about why some people choose to remember on November 5th. We made some fantastic loose parts fireworks and some delicious apple pops! As we have been talking about all things orange (bonfires and pumpkins) we decided to do some colour mixing to make the colour orange. So much fun!

One of the core texts we have enjoyed this term has been 'The Scarecrow's Wedding' by Julia Donaldson. We have been busy re-telling the story and crafting our own scarecrows using different materials!
We love to keep active in our outdoor area. Look at all the fun we have climbing, balancing, exploring, tipping, pouring and planting!
As part of our 'Marvellous Me' project we looked at our features and what make us unique. We all enjoyed painting some fabulous self portraits, which we have displayed on our 'We Belong' wall in the classroom.
