Fantastic first half term!

Friday 21 October 2022

Firstly, I would just like to say a massive well done to all of our nursery children this half term, you have all settled in amazingly and I am so proud.

This week we have focused our learning based on one of our favourite books ‘Room on the broom’ by Julia Donaldson.

The children have enjoyed reading and role playing the story in our book corner, repeating key phrases from the story.

Deacon- ‘It’s a witch, she has long hair’

Cora-‘witch and chips for tea’

Gracie- ‘she shouts DOWN! when she loses something off her broomstick’

We have explored all of our senses this week, diving into pumpkin madness. The children really enjoyed getting hands on and messy. We have saved some of our pumpkin seeds to plant in our garden next year.

Here is a link to watch Room on the broom with your child at home. Throughout the video pause and ask your child what they think might happen next?

Top tip for watching YouTube with your child: go to the settings cog (it’s along the play bar) and turn off auto play – this avoids an inappropriate clip coming up automatically, and helps to discourage your child from passively watching clip after clip.

Here are some more photos of our learning this week!


Reminder– Monday 31 October is an inset day for staff training.

I hope everybody has a lovely happy and healthy half term and we look forward to seeing you back on Tuesday 1 November.
