Are you fed up with asking the question 'How was school today?' and getting the response 'fine'?

Our new weekly blogs will give you more information about what your child is doing in school.  This will mean that you can ask meaningful questions to find out about their learning.

Week commencing 15th October 2018

This week in Nursery we are reading the story of Jack and the Beanstalk.  We will be learning about how stories are structured and looking carefully at the illustrations.  We will be making our own beanstalks and using language like bigger and smaller, taller and shorter.  We will use mark making to show the parts of the story that we like and we will be creating our own dinners for the giant to eat.  Our word for our ‘We are’ board is ‘friendly’ and we will be looking for lots of opportunities to tell each other how we have demonstrated ‘friendly’ this week.

Week commencing 8th October 2018

This week we will be using our interests about Autumn and reading the story of The Little Red Hen. We will be trying to join in with the repetitive phrases and retelling the story using props.  We will be identifying our favourite parts of the story and showing this through drawing and mark making.  In our number work this week we will be helping the little red hen to give each of the animals some bread and counting how many pieces each animal has.  We have enjoyed creating our own camp fires in nursery and we will be visiting the forest school area to look at a real fire – hopefully we will get the chance to toast some marshmallows!

Week commencing 1st October 2018.

This week we will be continuing to explore our learning environment.  We are finding out what is available in our nursery and what we can do with it.  We will be using the resources that we collected on our Autumn walk last week and reading books about Autumn.  We love painting in the nursery and this week we will be exploring what happens when we mix primary colours.  We will be singing number rhymes this week including five little ducks and five speckled frogs.
