Gruffalo and the autumn

Very busy this week as Mr.Gruffalo visited the classroom!The children were more than excited to have a story reading under a tree in the playground and then help the Gruffalo to find some nice autumn leaves! We then talked about all the different shapes and colors of the leaves and used them for our crafts! On Friday ,our team spirit was on  fire and we made a big group collage, taking turns and sharing with each other! Well done!



This week we read the story of the “Three little pigs”. We also went for a hunt in our big playground , to find wood sticks and straw!. Then we used all these and many more different materials to create some crafts and to build houses just like the three little pigs. Our library session on Friday was more than fun ,as Mrs Whitley gave us some masks which the children really enjoyed!

Welcome back to nursery!

After five weeks of holidays, we were very pleased to welcome to nursery our old and new children! This week the children have been exploring the nursery, meeting their friends and making some new, and they settled down, ready for the new term!Parents, you were all very helpful and we wait for you every Thursday morning to read book stories together. Enjoy the first photos of this year!

Building a boat!

Ruby and Sara went on the first trip with our boat!

The children drew circled windows and then cut the cardboard with the help of our school Caretaker, Mr Sean.

A simple cardboard box turned into our boat. The children were excited to paint the boat with their brushes!


The children painted some waves with their fingers!


We learned that we can use our milk cartons to make boats. Children tried to use their three fingers to hold and cut with a scissors the simple shapes they drew, like triangles and circles
