Home learning challenge

This week's home learning challenge is to support independence by practicing putting on your own socks and shoes each day. Parents are welcome to upload pictures of children achieving this skill on Evidence me. 

Good luck!




Can Parents please bring in a CUP, Wellington boots and a drawstring bag with spare clothes ASAP.

Please LABEL  all your children's belongings, including both shoes. Please ensure your child knows what their cup and wellies look like.

Children do not need to bring in water bottles as we encourage all children to drink using the cups throughout the session. Children do not need to bring bags into nursery, only clothes for their spare clothes bag when required.

Thank you

Important notice:


As the weather changes we ask for children to come to nursery wearing appropriate clothing for the weather. Please LABEL  all your children's belongings

Thank you

Outdoor learning


The children have had lots of fun learning in the garden. We have been learning to take turns, develop our big movements (gross motor skills) and most importantly how to safely take risks, for example balancing and jumping from log to log. The children have also been learning how to put their own shoes and coats on, as well as overalls and wellies for outdoor play.



Indoor learning

The children have shown lots of interest, motivation and determination at the finger gym activity:threading. The children have engaged with all the activities and have their favourites.


Time to investigate

Yum yum! 

Making a playdough person

We love threading!


All about me


Our topic from this week until half term will be ‘All About Me’. the children have been talking about their families, their likes and dislikes and getting to know all about their teachers. We have been concentrating on our emotions this week. Naming emotions including Sad, happy, tired and hungry. The children have been learning to say I AM statements. For example ‘ I AM… happy or I AM sad etc, as they learn to express their emotions and learn their voice is important.


We love listening to stories


Fun with friends 

The children have been making bonds this week with both friends and teachers. We have begun to see some special friendships form already. 


We have made lots of friends this week


French Fridays
