"Use your God-given gifts to serve others." 1 Peter 4: 10





This week we are embracing all things Christmas, we are looking at the book 'Dear Santa' which is very similar to the book we have already read a few weeks back 'Dear zoo' . The children will practice the skills they have gained over this term by re visiting activities they have done before but with a Christmas theme.

Celebration week! We are reading the book ‘Kippers Birthday’ we are following some events from the book, so far we have made cakes, painted invites for our party, wrapped presents and enjoyed dancing to songs and exploring instruments. The children have explored ‘Birthdays’ using sensory play with Playdoh, custard, rice, kinetic sand and water which they have all loved!

Dear Zoo!

 WB: 30/11/2020


This week we explored the book 'Dear Zoo', the children really enjoyed making animal noises and guessing what animal was inside the box! The children made some super lion masks and worked together as a team to create a fantastic artic scene.

WC 23.11.20 We've really enjoyed our book, 'What the Ladybird Heard' this week. This is our writing table where we added pictures and words to the farm scene.

WC 16.11.20 This week in Seedlings Hub we have been reading the book, Shark in the Dark by Peter Bently. We have used different mediums to create the sea, we have made our own jellyfish whilst discussing short and long (when making their tentacles) and we have created a wanted poster for the shark!
