We will be reading and retelling our story of the week, beginning to recognise the shape of our own name, using scissors safely and for purpose, talking about favourite animals, counting objects, and exploring the sounds instruments make.

Have a lovely weekend and see you all on Monday!

This week’s learning…

The children have continued to settle in this week, making new friendships and gaining in confidence.

We have been learning counting songs and rhymes together, including ‘Five Little Elephants’ and ‘Five lollies on sticks’.

We have talked how to sit sensibly on the carpet, ways to stay safe and happy in nursery, and made our class charter, which the children have ‘signed’ with sparkly fingerprints!

They enjoyed playing with the multi-cultural masks, playing with the puzzles, mark-making in the sand and doing large mark-making outside on the ground!

The stories ‘Where’s my Teddy’ and ‘Be Gentle’ have been very popular with the children this week, they listened and sat beautifully!

Well done Chick and Ducking class!

Next week’s learning…

This half term our topic is ‘All About Me’.

Next week, the children will be learning all about themselves and how they are the same or different from others; learning counting rhymes; developing their fine motor skills and learning the school rules and boundaries.

Enjoy your weekend! We look forward to seeing you all on Monday!

This week’s learning…

We have had a fantastic week getting to know the children and finding out about their interests. We have had lots of fun: painting, drawing, dancing singing, learning how to use the toilets independently and making new friends.

The children really enjoyed dancing to songs of their choice with their new friends!

They also loved dressing up, roleplaying, having fruit time…

And listening to their favourite stories…
