Visit our blog to see what we have been up to. We look forward to enjoying a year of fun and learning with our lovely new children.

We were very proud of the children on Friday as we learnt about Remembrance Day. We talked about poppies, what “remembering” meant and observed the 1 minute silence at 11 o’clock. The children were very interested and showed empathy throughout the day. We created poppy artwork using different skills that we have been practising in our provision. We watched this CBeebies Remembrance clip:


The children had lots of fun learning about fireworks last week. We watched videos and learnt new words such as "bang", "fizz", "sparkle" and "pop". We made lots of firework art, taking inspiration from artist Jackson Pollock! Look at our display. We also had a try at writing some firework words using the sounds we have been learning.
