Thursday 30th April - Squiggle Whilst you Wiggle

 The children have been working really hard with their early writing skills. We develop our gross motor skills first using our flipper flappers and complete dances to help with the moves we need for writing. We then transfer these movements on to paper.

Take a look at some of our writing from Dance 4 - Hump.

Fabulous Phonics

Our older children (N2) are all working really hard at their phonic skills.They have all been learning the sounds m, a, s, d, t, and i. 

The Gorilla Group children have even been learning how to write down the letters that make those sounds.

Take a look at our fantastic letter formation and writing skills!

W.C. Monday 16th April - Magic Maths!

 The children have worked really hard to learn about and make repeating patterns. They each chose two colours and made sure they repeated them to make an ABABAB repeating pattern.

The children were even able to help each other and correct the pattern if they spotted a mistake!

Have a go at making repeating patterns at home! You can use anything you may have lying around the house e.g fork, knife, fork, knife!

Have fun!

W.C. Monday 25th March - Easter Week

 We have had an eggs-tremely busy week this week! We have been learning all about Easter and taking part in lots of Easter activities!

We took part in some Easter baking, where every child had the chance to make an Easter crispie cake! The children ate their cakes at snack time!

The children were very egg-cited to have a visit from the Easter Bunny, who hid lots of chocolate eggs all around Nursery. They used team-work skills to find all of the eggs!

The children also took part in an Easter bonnet parade! The children worked hard at home to design and make their Easter bonnets. We walked around school to show off their hard work!

Some children even took part in the annual egg decorating competition! All of the entries were amazing!

We have also been learning songs and rhymes about Easter! Click on the link to sing along to our Easter song!

A big thank you to all children and their parents for contributing to this week and for making it a lot of fun for the children! We hope you have a fantastic Easter break and look forward to seeing you all soon. 

Happy Easter!

Monday 11th March - Big Question Update

What happened to Jack's Beans?

 The children have been learning about growing.

We planted some beans and found out what they needed to grow healthily. Plants need light, heat, soil and water.

Every child planted a bean and have been observing the daily changes.

We were so excited to spot that our beanstalks have started to grow! First we saw the roots appearing through the bottom of the pot and then we saw a green shoot appear!

Mr. Walmsley planted a bean and put lots of water in it! We are going to see what happens. Do you think his beanstalk will grow?

Take a look at our photos!

Thursday 7th March - World Book Day

 We celebrated World Book Day by dressing as our favourite book characters. All of our children looked amazing! Well done every one.

Monday 16th October - Art Day

 The children were very lucky to have a visit from Miss. Walton, our school's art coordinator. Miss. Walton is very passionate about art and highly skilled too! She worked with the children to create a piece of art work in the style of a famous artist - Jean-Michel Basquiat.

The children used pastilles to decorate a crown. Then they used paint to create a mono-print on a screen using a window scraper.

The children made patterns in the paint using their fingers and then pressed their coloured crown down to create the print.

I hope you will agree that their finished crowns look amazing!

A big thank you to Miss. Walton for working with us.

Tuesday 10th October - World Mental Health Day

The children worked together to colour a picture. Every child in the school was involved in decorating the pages of the picture. The pages will be put together to make a larger picture and will be displayed in the school corridor.

The children learned about the importance of working together and the need to be kind to others. The children discussed how "sad" feels and we talked about some things we could do to make ourselves feel better when we are sad.

Please take a look below to view our children working together.
