All About Me!

WC 26.09.22

We have been so lucky to have had an amazing sporting opportunity this week, where Jack Rutter, an Paralympic footballer, came to visit us and carry out a sponsored circuit. It was so inspiring and great fun! We all tried so hard, and were definitely very tired by the end!

This week, our story focus has been The Tortoise and the Hare.

WC 19.09.22

We have been thinking about our families, and how they are similar and different to other peoples. We created family pictures to put on display, and have been looking at the differences between animals and their babies!

We have also started learning our phonics this week. We have learnt m,a,s,d and t. We are all trying really hard, and have been practicing our letter formation in Continuous Provision.

This week, our story focus has been Monkey Puzzle.

WC 12.09.22

The children have really settled this week and we have all really got to know one another much better. We all shared our baby photos and talked about how much we had changed. We also have started looking at Harvest, and picked apples from the orchard! We used knives to cut them up ourselves and had them for a tasty afternoon snack!

WC 05.09.22

The children have been so amazing this week and have settled into school life so well! We have all had so much fun getting to know each other, and are learning all of our rules and routines. We have been so fantastic that we even made it into celebration assembly assembly this week!
