Term 3

This is our last week of Term 3 and we have explored what happens in a very noisy night when Mr Bear can't get to sleep.  

Thank you for coming to our Curriculum Afternoon - we hope you enjoyed the Valentines Biscuits and our Porridge Song!  

The children have worked very hard and made progress over the last 6 weeks and we thank you for getting them into Nursery and supporting them.


We hope you have a good rest and will see you on Wednesday 27th February at 1 pm.


Happy and safe holidays!


Mrs Knights and Mrs Moral

We have been so busy over the last few weeks!

In the land of fairy tales we visited the 3 little pigs, the 3 billy goats gruff and the 3 bears.  We think we know what 3 is now!

We have explored textures, bridges and what we like to have for breakfast - today the Bears opened their own cafe with real toast and jam and a drink.  The children had to order and pay for their food (with coins they made on Thursday).  It was very exciting and the only thing that would have been better is if a real bear had come to the cafe too. 

We are learning the vocabulary of size - big, middle, small and some repeated rhythmic phrases like "trip trap, trip trap over the bridge" and "Who's been eating my porridge?"  We are becoming really good at retelling the stories for ourselves and trying out different characters too.  


Next Thursday afternoon is Curriculum afternoon - we will have some story characters to make and maybe a little celebration of Valentine's Day. 


Have a happy weekend,  Mrs Knights and Mrs Moral



Week 2 found us exploring the story of Jack and the Beanstalk.  We have been discovering how to grind bones (only pretend - I promise!), climb a beanstalk and act out the story.  We have created beanstalks, towers for the giant and thought about what might be at the top of a beanstalk.  We are learning words to describe height and compare ourselves - who is taller / shorter?  Is the beanstalk taller than all of us when we stand next to it?

We also considered Courage and times when we have had to be brave - some of us said this was when we climbed the beanstalk ladder and jumped off!   


Have a happy weekend - week 3 will be the 3 Little Pigs with lots of building!

Welcome to Term 3 where we will be exploring a different story every week, starting with our favourite Gingerbread Man.  


Our focus for learning:

story and rhyme

numbers, counting, shapes, measure words for size, length, capacity

mark making and story telling and writing

using story language eg once upon a time, because, then, next, the end

making things

tidying up!



And what a brilliant start to Term 3!  Thank you for all our gifts and cards and we hope everyone had a very good holiday and feels ready for more learning.  We have discovered lots of energy for chasing the Gingerbread Teachers that is for sure!  We have told the story of the Gingerbread Man while outside and we love running and challenging each other to catch us.  We have been telling our own versions of this story using Story Maps and we have created masks and made our own delicious gingerbread figures.  

Week 2 will be exploring what happens when something special is planted; what might it grow into?


REMEMBER this is the last weekend for applying for your child's place in Reception Class September 2019.  DON'T LEAVE IT ANY LONGER - we can do the application online with you at school, please come and see Mr Williams our Family Link Worker.
