Ahoy, Me Hearties!

It’s been all hands on deck in Crew FE recently as we have been exploring the world of pirates!
The children have been developing their fine motor skills by creating their own pirate ships and naming the shapes of their portholes and flags. The very talented Mrs Kelly, Mrs Mason, Mrs White and Miss Lee have worked hard to create an AMAZING pirate ship in our role play area for the children to enjoy. We have also been getting creative in our writing and the children have produced beautiful work and really showed off their skills. What terrific shipmates!

Fun in the sun in EYFS

The children (and grown ups!) have loved taking our learning outside over the last few days. Today we have taken part in many activities such as bike riding, climbing, shelter building and chalk drawing – to name just a few!

We have particularly enjoyed painting our own under water worlds based on this week’s story, ‘Billy’s Bucket’.

Jubilee Celebrations

What a fantastic day we had yesterday celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee. The children enjoyed learning all about the Queen, making decorations and showing off their outfits of red, white and blue. They have been so excited today to tell us all about their afternoon with their families – especially the ice creams!

Thank you to our parents and families for joining us, we hope you had a wonderful time! Thank you also to the amazing staff who helped put together such a fun event.

Puppet Show Fun in EYFS

The children in EYFS had a special visitor recently! They were very lucky to be able to attend a real Punch and Judy puppet show from Mr Dan. His puppet character friends were so funny, they made us laugh so much! We used what we had learned in the classroom in our small world area where we created our own puppets and puppet shows, building on our story telling and speaking and listening skills. 

EYFS playground is ready!


The area is finally ready!!

We would like to invite you to a stay and explore session with your child at either 8.45am or 2.15pm on Monday 23rd May.

Feel free to attend either session with your child. Staff will be around to speak to and guide children into school in the morning and then out of school for home in the afternoon.

You will be able to look around our exciting new area and explore the wonderful equipment with your child. We will be greeting all parents and children at the normal blue gates (front of school) at both times, where the ribbon will be cut and the area will be open for the children to explore. 

The children will then be dropped off and picked up from the main blue gates after the opening. 

Important information

The new equipment installed is specifically designed for children working in the EYFS (between 3 and 6 years of age). This means that unfortunately, older children are not permitted to use the equipment due to height and weight restrictions. We kindly ask that when dropping off and collecting your child from the EYFS, older siblings DO NOT climb or play on the equipment due to health and safety reasons. We also ask that EYFS children do not play on the equipment before or after school. The local park is a short walk away if your child would like to play on park equipment out of school hours. To ensure that the new equipment is only used during school hours by EYFS children, members of school staff will monitor the playground and ask children to come off the playground equipment if they are seen playing on it. We thank you for your cooperation on this matter. 

Thank you for your support, we look forward to seeing you on Monday!

The EYFS Staff Crew 

Oh we do like to be beside the seaside!

What a fantastic day we had at the seaside! The weather was on our side as we enjoyed a dry day in Cleethorpes.

We explored the beach, collecting treasure we found such as sand, shells and seaweed to bring back to the classroom to support our Expedition learning. 

On our walk towards the pier we were lucky enough to catch the Coastguards working on their equipment. They very kindly showed us some of their equipment and explained what used it for. 

After a picnic on the beach we went on the hunt for an ice cream whilst taking in the sights and sounds of the coastline – delicious!

The children represented Carcroft School brilliantly and thoroughly enjoy their day.

Crew FE would like to say a huge thank you to our parents and staff in school for ensuring the day could go ahead.
