5…4…3…2…1….Blast off!

The children have had great fun heading off into space in our rocket this week, just like the dinosaurs in our story. They also made some ‘moon’ rock cakes which smelled and tasted delicious.

Who’s been messing up our classroom?

We hope you all had a nice half term break. Excitement levels were high as we arrived back to school to a crime scene!
The children spent the day searching for evidence and finally solved the mystery of who had caused all of the commotion! Goldilocks!!
This week we will be doing lots of activities based around Goldilocks & the Three Bears and will end the week celebrating St David’s Day. This weeks new number is the number 5 and our new sounds are ‘n’ and ‘p’.

Princes, Princesses & PE!

Our theme this week is based on Princes and Princesses. The children have loved dressing up, making swords and shields and listening to some Princess stories. A lot of time has been spent in our Princess bedroom role play where we have some budding hairdressers in the making!
PE was very exciting this morning as we had the wall bars out for the very first time! We saw some great climbing skills!

The Three Little Pigs

This week we have started on one of our favourite topics in Nursery, the story of The Three Little Pigs. We started the week reading the story and talking about the different materials the pigs used to build their houses. We all decided that bricks were definitely the strongest and have used lots of different building bricks and blocks within the classroom to create houses of our own.
The children have also enjoyed making houses for the pigs out of junk and have made up some wonderful stories of their own using their stick puppets. Some of the houses have some very clever design features to stop the wolf from entering!
You may have heard the children singing our new song, here’s a link if you’d like to join in at home – we all love it!

We’re going on an elf hunt….

We had great fun yesterday morning looking for elves! Our resident elf, Elvis, tricked us all by hiding himself and some friends in the Nursery gardens.
More fun today with our Christmas party. Don’t forget for those children who only do half day, please come in 10.30 until 2.30 so you don’t miss out on the fun!

Christmas Cheer

Christmas preparations are in full swing! We’ve been very busy baking cakes, making cards, tree decorations and placemats which of course involved lots of paint & sparkle! We even managed to find time to sing some Christmas songs and play our musical instruments.

We hope to see some of you on Monday evening for carols around the tree and don’t forget to wear your Christmas jumpers tomorrow!
