Transition to a new class in September

Share the Cautious Caterpillar ppt with your child. Talk about the ‘change’ that is on the horizon for Cody and how that is making him/her feel. Draw a picture of the story and talk about the different things Cody is ‘cautious about.


Use the moving to my new class cautious caterpillar ppt to start a discussion about moving to a new year and for some of you a new classroom.

16.10.19 The children in Reception had a lot of fun on their welly walk this week.  Our wonderful Sport’s Ambassadors helped to set up the obstacle course and the children completed 10 laps of the course in record time!!!It was wonderful – we had biscuits and drinks to finish off!!Thanks to all of you who have brought in your sponsor money already – what a fantastic job you have all done of raising money for resources in Corfe.  We will wait until the end of term to decide what we are going to buy – the children already have some very interesting ideas!!!!Thanks again for all your fundraising.  I think you can see from the pictures how much (muddy) fun was had by all!!

Below are some photos of our visit from the School Nurse

11.9.19 – Everyone in reception had a great time on Friday morning when Rose came to visit us from the Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service.

We learnt all about how to keep safe in our home, especially in the kitchen when grown ups are cooking. Rose also taught us a new rhyme about keeping safe with matches and lighters. 

All the children received a special fire engine colouring in, as well as some stickers and a pencil!

All the children even practiced to “Stop, Drop and Roll!”

9.10.19 – The children and parents from Corfe had a lot of fun today as the children showed off their learning in phonics.  There were lots of different activities for the children to do together with their grown-ups.  We also had fun showing our grown-ups the phonics play website where there are lots of games to play.  We also showed them Mr Thorne does phonics – a website which demonstrates how to say each sound properly to best aid the children as they learn each sound.We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did and found it a useful morning.Thanks for coming!!!   Love from Corfe

The children in Corfe enjoyed a wonderful trip to Downbarn Farm this week.  When we first arrived we had a lovely play and a snack in the garden before heading up to the woodland area.  On the way up the hill we counted lots of different vehicles.  We had so much fun climbing on and off the vehicles and sliding down the hay bales.  When we arrived at the woodland, there were lots of activities for us to do including den making, hat making, bug finding, listening for different woodland creatures and noises and helping to make a bug hotel. After we had enjoyed our lunch, we had a lovely play in the big field where we took turns to fly kites and chase after them!!We then had the best time toasting marshmallows around the fire.  We had to be very careful not to catch them alight or drop them in!  They tasted all gooey and delicious!!Finally we had a lovely story before heading back to the cars and coming back to school.We would like to say ‘A GREAT BIG THANK YOU!’ to Mr and Mrs House for letting us come and enjoy your lovely farm and for getting all the tractors and hay bales ready for us to have fun on.
We had such a fabulous time!!! Love Corfe xx 

The children in Corfe have been busy working on their skills in preparation for their first Sport’s Day in a few weeks time…..they are super fast and love running races and playing games!! 

We have had a busy time in Corfe this half term learning all about Minibeasts. We read lots of different stories and finished with an old favourite The Hungry Caterpillar. The children had a busy day on Wednesday making sandwiches and fruit salad for a Hungry Caterpillar picnic which they enjoyed in the afternoon.
Have a lovely half term holiday everyone!!
