What did you do at school today ?

We have had lots of fun encouraging your children to begin to write letters this week through our Post Office role play. We have talked about stamps, looked at post boxes. We have scales for weighing and a map of Worksop. The children have been handling coins and are beginning to learn coin names and values.

Outside in the garden we have been using our imaginations by going on a bear and dinosaur hunt. On cold days we have made a fire with sticks to keep us warm. We are still weather watching and finding signs of Spring. Some children have been naming birds and flowers too, how many can you name?

We are enjoying reading and recalling our story of the week and learning to write our names too.

We have lots of fun on the big field every day in our wellies !


First week back !

Great to see the children with their smiles back in class this week !
We celebrated with balloons, a cake to share and a special class present 🌈. Then we talked about all the things we were looking forward to doing this week.

Look at the wind socks we made and tested out to see how windy it was … it was windy !

We all talked about the weather every day this week using our weather wheels. We noticed the weather changing in the afternoon too!

The children accepted the challenge to draw the pictures from the book and add some story words.

We all laughed at the story of Norman the slug 🐌 with the silliest shell, who was so positive, ambitious and determined to try new things. Just like us !
