Fun with Phonics

This week in nursery we had lots of fun taking part in wiggle and squiggle! Pop on the radio or your favourite music or song and write away! Let the music take control of your body and your pen and have fun mark making as big as you can!

Sam’s Safari Camping Adventure

  • Today we joined Sam’s Safari on a camping adventure. We got ready, packed our bag and climbed a mountain and pitched our rent in a perfect spot.  We met lots of animals on our journey including stick insects, frogs, hedgehogs, Bruce the bearded dragon and Peter the rabbit! Not forgetting the tortoise and Kerry the snake! The story helped us to learn about the animals, what they eat and their habitats.

Hot dogs, popcorn and film night

Sunset club staff and children enjoyed ‘film night’ to celebrate the end of the half term. Great fun was had by all!



Conker fun!

This week in nursery the children were set a maths challenge! To create a number line collaboratively as they come into school! It was great to hear the maths language the children used to discuss where their conker should go and some children were even reading the number to their friends and parents. The problem solving and excitement was great to hear and see. Well done nursery!

The Little Red Hen

This week in nursery we explored the story of The Little Red Hen. Lots of book talk about the characters and the events of the story helped the children make predictions and retell the story to each other. Children made bread and muffins in the homecorner and sang along to the Little Red Hen Song!

Fun with phonics

This week in phonics we have had lots of nursery rhyme fun! Our challenge this week is to share our favourite nursery rhyme with our family. Don’t forget to tell Miss Carter for your reward!
