Red Nose Day 2023 is just around the corner!

E-Safety Day 2023

On Tuesday 7th February we celebrated Safer Internet Day 2023, attached are the slides we created to showcase our thoughts and ideas. 

Internet Safety or E-Safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at school. At Carcroft School we want to help our parents and children improve their own understanding of e-safety issues so they can learn to use the internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way.

As a parent/carer you’ll know how important the internet is to children – they use it to learn, play, socialise and express themselves. But the technology children use every day can seem a bit daunting and you might worry about the risks your child can face online – such as bullying, contact from strangers or the possibility of them seeing illegal or inappropriate content.  

To try and help parents/carers with the fast moving and changing world of internet and social media we’ve suggested a few internet sites. You can also read/download the documents for further information and advice.

  •  Thinkyouknow (advice from the National Crime Agency to stay safe online)
  • Internet matters (support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online)
  • Parent info (support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online)
  • Child net (help and advice for parents and carers)
  • Net-aware (support for parents and careers from the NSPCC)

Litter picking and collecting leaves in EYFS 🗑🍂

This morning during crew, Crew McGlone and Crew Welburn worked together to collect litter and leaves from our playground. We talked about how this would make our playground a safer place for us to play.

Together we collected LOTS of leaves and put them into bin bags – some of us even got to use special litter pickers! Our playground is already looking much better but we are going to continue taking care of our outdoor area so it is a lovely place for us to spend time in.

Nursery’s first day with Miss McGlone

Today has been extremely exciting down in nursery… it’s been our first day with Miss McGlone as our teacher! We have been superstars showing her how well we take turns with one another, treat each other with kindness and we REALLY impressed her with how well we could tidy up after ourselves! Miss McGlone is so excited to be your teacher this year ☺️

The Polar Express in Crew Nursery!

The children in crew nursery today took a trip on the Polar Express! We collected our tickets and explored school using our own Santa bell.

We had hot chocolate and cookies and were able to visit Santa himself in his own grotto. We had to listen carefully to hear the bells ringing. We were very lucky Santa brought us all a present!

Its Christmas in Crew Nursery.

Today the children created their own Christmas tree biscuit. They spoke about how we wash our hands before baking to stop the spread of germs. We mixed, rolled and cut out our own trees before Mrs Rafter placed them in the hot oven.

Once they were cooled we were able to decorate them. We used lots of different sprinkles and even added stars to the top. They were very tasty!

Its Christmas in crew Nursery.

The children have started of the Christmas celebrations by decorating the classroom and finding out about the very first Christmas. They have tried to wrap up their own presents and posted their Santa letters in the class post box. 🎅🏻
It is such a magical time of year we are looking forward to the weeks to come.🎄

Celebration of learning in Nursery.

Thank you to all the parents who came to celebrate our children’s successes this term. The children were so proud to show all their fantastic pieces of work, especially their video!

Why not head over to our expedition website and take a look.

The children were presented with a teddy bear to love and cherish to remember their fantastic learning.

Well done Crew Nursery!
