Well done to Kiyomi and thank you for all the lovely pictures. Kiyomi has especially enjoyed checking the weather daily and putting up the date and day of the week.

Thank you for sending me some photos of your fabulous learning Jack Cannon. It is wonderful to see how busy you have been. Your Easter cakes look delicious and I love the cards!


'The Rainbow Fish' by Marcus Pfister. We have chosen 'wow' words from the story to use and taught the children in Nursery and Reception to develop their vocabulary. All words are displayed in classrooms and also in the central area between the EYFS classrooms. Here they are for you to be aware of and to use at home too: sparkly,shimmer,proud, delighted, whizzed

Our 'Marvellous me' topic. We began by talking about ourselves, what we like and dislike, what we can do and then we talked about being babies and how we have grown up. We made a display of all of our baby photos, including staff and we had to guess whot he baby was! We learnt that not all families are the same and also that we all live in different homes. We had ago at making a straw house, a stick house and a brick house just like the Three Little Pigs from the traditional tale.We learnt about our bodies, and showed what we could do with our bodies moving to body songs. We learnt about our 5 senses through some fun activities including the 'whats missing' game where we had to use our eyes to see, the smelly pot guessing game where we had to guess the smells and we also enjoyed making sounds with the instruments. Here are some picture of what we have been up to.
