It’s nearly our Nativity!

The children have been busy practising the Nativity and are getting very excited to show it to you next week!

In between practices the children have been playing and exploring the unit both inside and outside.


As outdoor experiences are an important part of our learning can we please ask that your child comes to school with a hat, gloves, a scarf and a warm coat.


Thinking Time

Are the clouds in under or above the sky? Why do you think this?


One of our favourite books of all times is ‘Elmer’ and we’ve been reading it a lot! We’ve really enjoyed finding out how Elmer tricked the other elephants by covering himself in elephant-coloured berries.

You can watch and listen to the story by following this link.

We have made our own patchwork Elmers by choosing different colours of paper to make a collage with. Next we would like to try printing a patchwork Elmer.

We have done lots of counting this week and matching our numerals. Please help your child to do this at home all the way up to 10, then 20.


This week we were lucky enough to visit the library in Worksop where we listened to some stories about jungle animals and had the chance to look at some books ourselves too! Many thanks to the library for allowing us to invade your special place and reading us some great stories!
