Week 8

This week we have been talking about bonfire safety and bonfire night. We learnt about Diwali the festival of light and made diva lamps out of clay and painted them. We read the story ‘Hovis the hedgehog’ Bonfire night and talked about how our pets might feel scared.


Week 9

Our book of the week was ‘I love animals’. We learnt about different animals and the noises that they make. We sang some action songs to help us remember such as; old McDonald had a farm and the farmers in his den. On Thursday we learnt about Remembrance Day, had 2 minutes silence to remember those who fought for us to have a better life and made poppies using playdough, pipe cleaners and pom-poms.



Week 10

On Monday we wore odd socks for anti-bulling week to show that everyone is different, special and unique. We read the book ‘Oh no George! In the story George made bad choices but then he promised to be good. We talked about how we all make mistakes sometimes but we can learn from them. On Friday we came to nursery in our PJ’s and onesies to raise money for children in need. We had fun putting Pudsey back together and putting spots on his bandana.


Week 11

This week we read the book ‘Dear Zoo!’ We learnt about all the different animals in the story. In maths we compared sizes of the animals and the containers they arrived in. On Wednesday the zoo sent us a parcel. We talked about how we will look after the animals and we wrote a letter to the zoo to say thank you. We made animal masks and painted pictures of our favourite animals. We did dough disco to down in the jungle where nobody goes.

Our book of the week was ‘Kipper’s Birthday!’ We talked about our Birthday’s and how we celebrate. We learnt about how people celebrate birthdays in different cultures. In EAD we made party hats and birthday cards. In literacy we wrote invitations and decorated cakes with writing icing. In maths we did party planners with 5 frames and measured out ingredients to make a cake.
