Mathematics in the Early Years at Kidgate

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!

Autumn 2 Newsletter - Whizz, Bang, Sparkle!

Whizz, Bang, Sparkle! Topic Web

We have been busy learning all about why some people choose to remember on November 5th. This week we have created some fantastic 'Whizz, Bang, Sparkle' firework displays using loose parts!

Colour mixing fun! As we have been talking this week about all things orange, including pumpkins and bonfires, we thought we would explore and investigate how to make the colour orange ourselves!

'Posh Pumpkin' inspiration ready for our Pumpkin Parade next term! We can't wait to see your creations.....

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.
