EYFS Sports Morning


Today Nursery and Reception joined together for a fun Sports Morning. The sun was shining for us as we had a 'balance a quoit on your head' race, a bean bag toss, an egg and spoon race,  a running race and a welly wang. 


We all had great fun and lots of children came 1st, 2nd or 3rd several times.

We had a friend of Mrs Sample's from Darlington Railway Museum who came to read us a story about steam trains.


Mr Garrod came to Reception this morning to teach us the poem Happy Thought by Robert Louis Stevenson.

We watched The Dot by Peter Reynolds to encourage us to use our imagination.


We wrote our own animal poems and wrote a Book about Me. It has been such a fun and busy week and there is still so much fun to be had!

Welcome back after our lovely, sunny half term break. I hope you all enjoyed a well deserved break.
