We have loved 'The Three Little Pigs' story and really used our scientific and technology skills to learn about materials, building and constructing.

We built houses with straw, sticks and bricks for our three little pigs to investigate how strong these materials were. We tried blowing them down ourselves and then we used The BIG BAD WOLF HAIRDRYER! We found out straw was very weak. WOLF HAIRDRYER  blew the straw off  the table!

We loved making houses so much. Some of us continoued our learning outdoors in the woods and made more stick houses.


We also enjoyed watching the leaves fall in the sunshine.

We thene made our own houses out of recycled materials. We had to explore how to attach the pieces together, using tape, glue and elastic bands.

We worked really hard and are so proud of our efforts.

We have also been working really hard on our letter sounds have a look at some of the fun activities for letters m, a and s.

Hi All,

Welcome back after half term break and a well earned rest.  Thank you to all the parents who came to see us for parent consultations we hope they were informative. The Children's number posters look fabulous and have encouraged all the children to talk about their work.

The children have loved finding out about the characaters in Ten Town we are up to Fiona Five and the children have been doing many counting and number recognition activities. We have also tried some more challenging problem solving activities too.

Enjoy our photos of Ten Town theme

We had a lovely walk to our own school pond. It was covered in lily pads and other plants, we could see it was a zero shape like Zero pond. We walked back but had a run down the junior hill on our way. It was fun. When we got back we made our own zero pond in the water tray. It was VERY popular!

Colours, Shapes and Patterns

User Rating:  / 1

Hi All,

A fantastic two weeks finding out about colours, shape and patterns. We have been very busy painting, making, and creating in our craft areas using so many different colours patterns and textures in our work. The children have been learning lots of new vocabulary too.

The Mr Men and Little Misses helped us learn all about shapes. We went on a hunt around our Nursery looking for familiar shapes and if we spotted one we took a photo on the ipad. We have also been learning to use beebots -they were very popular. Mr Messy helped us with our mark making skills and pencil grip, we also enjoyed making a Mr Messy biscuit -yum! We are looking forward to learning about Diwali on Friday and doing enven more lovely patterns.

The Gruffalo

Hi All,

We have had a wonderful week with the Gruffalo and the other characters from the story. We have been busy making arts and crafts. Our shape characters look fabulous so we kept them for display! We also went on a Gruffalo hunt in our school woods. It was a bit scary and a bit exciting but we all enjoyed a soft Gruffalo hug when we found him. We have also been baking. Gruffalo Apple Crumble was delicious! Some we asked for more, whilst a few of us were very brave and had a tiny taste. In our cooking play tray ome of the children had a funny idea about how to use the mixing bowl.We have also enjoyed reading lots of different stories on our own or with a friend. We also had a visit to the play area builders yard. #We loved it!

Enjoy our photos.

Living Things around our Nursery

We have had such fun in our first two weeks of finding out about Living Things. We have enjoyed finding out about the parts of a plant, planting our own sunflower seed, finding out how to look after it and watching it grow. The shoots have already come out. I wonder who's will be the tallest? We also collected plants and natural materials to make our own sculptures and patterns.
