When we first start school we will be exploring our new classroom, learning about new school routines and getting to know each other.

We will then be moving on to a topic all about nursery rhymes. We will be singing rhymes together, joining in with actions and movements, creating art work linked to some of the rhymes, making puppets to act out the stories, dressing up as the characters and exploring aspects of some rhymes such as baking cakes like the Bakers Man and investigating how we can help stop Humpty from breaking when he falls off the wall.

In the final few weeks before half term we will be focusing on personal, social and emotional development through a topic called Fabulous Friends. During these weeks we will be talking about what we like to play with our friends, thinking about different situations and how they might make us feel and what we can do to help each other if someone is upset. We will also be sharing stories about friends and creating our own friend stories.

Wc 3.9.2018 The children have all made a fantastic start to school this week. On the first day of school the children had lots of fun exploring their new classroom with their friends. We painted pictures to go in our art gallery as well as exploring our home corner and imagination stage - the dressing up was particularly popular. We also went outside to play in the playground (despite the busy building work still going on) and enjoyed sharing milk and fruit at breaktime. We have shared stories about school and sang songs together and we all had our first hot dinner too.

Wc 10.9.2018 This week at school we have been singing all of our favourite nursery rhymes. We have talked about the characters in teh rhymes and all of the problems and trouble that they get into as well as discussing which is our favourite rhyme and why. We have created some beautiful art work linked the some of our favourite rhymes including painting ourseleves as soldiers to march up the hill with the Grand Old Duke of York as well as some lovely Humpty Dumpty puppets and collage. We have also been helping Miss Polly look after her dolly who was sick, sick, sick and helping Incy Wincy spider climb up his water spout in our water tray.

We would also like to say a big thank you to all those parents who have donated toys to school, they are greatly appreciated and the children have loved playing with them.
