Getting Arty in Autumn

We've been having so much fun this week in Nursery enjoying a range of activities which follow different children's interests and our Autumn theme; from making decorative Autumn leaves to go on our classroom tree, to threading leaves into garlands, to making hedgehogs with hand prints. We've even made our very own toffee apples! Scrumptious!



The Gruffalo!

We have recently been to see the Gruffalo live on stage! What a fantastic trip! Everyone enjoyed joining in with the story, wiggling like a snake and roaring like the Gruffalo! Raaaaaaa!

Back at school we have done lots of different Gruffalo activities using our maths skills. We used the visualiser to help us draw the Gruffalo using 2D shapes and we also made Gruffalo crumble, counting out the purple prickles (blackberries). It was delicious!

What counting can you do at home?

Please have a go at adding your own observations from home or out of school experiences. We observe and record children’s progress in order to plan a responsive and appropriate curriculum which will meet the needs and interests of each individual child along their continuing learning journeys. By working together we can obtain a holistic view, a rounded true picture of your child. Your contribution is valuable!
