The latest classroom blog posts
This term our topic is ‘What’s Growing?’ This week the children listened to the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and sequenced pictures as they retold the story. They have also planted cress seeds which have already started to grow. We are going to listen to the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and watch real caterpillars make their cocoons and hatch into butterflies, how exciting!
This term we will be taking the Nursery children to the hall in school to do P.E. every Monday. We will be introducing the children to the apparatus they will use when they move into their Reception classes. The children do not need a P.E. kit as they simply take off their shoes and socks and jumpers. May we ask that the children do not wear tights under trousers and have plenty of practise taking off and putting on their socks and shoes.
We will be carrying on with name writing as you bring the children into Nursery. Thank you so much for your support. The children are making great progress in their pencil control and letter awareness. We are also making sure the children are aware of shape names and colours, counting to 10 and recognising numbers in preparation for their time in Reception.
The sun has been very hot this week. Can we ask that the children have their sun screen put on before they come to Nursery and bring a hat/cap to wear when they go outside.
Sorry they are late but as promised pictures of the Animal man visit. The children had an exciting time, there were lots of different animals for the children to see, hold and feel if they felt brave enough.
We have been playing this coconut game to practise our 2’s, 3’s, 5’s and 10’s pattern. Have a go at home. Can you score 10/10?

This week, we’ve started our new topic, The Vikings!
We started off by watching this video exploring Odin and the Yggdrasil. As the week goes on, we’re going to be exploring different Vikings sagas.
Here are some amazing Viking god stories for you to enjoy!
Our topic, this term, is Earth Explorers. During our Art week, we have designed tiles using clay. We moulded the clay and added foliage shapes using special tools to create a rainforest effect. We were inspired by the artist Henri Rousseau (1844-1910), who painted pictures of the jungle. We look forward to showing you our tiles when we bring them home.
