Saturday 24 February 2024


This week we have started to notice the changes in the weather and that Spring is on the way!

Our focus story this week was  Jasper’s Beanstalk, the children have really enjoyed this story, anticipating what might happen next, retelling what happens and exploring how Jasper is feeling.

Jasper found a bean on Monday and he planted it on Tuesday – Ella D

He waited a long time for it to grow, it made him feel sad because it wasn’t growing quick – Ella M

Snails have a shell and slugs don’t have a shell- Charlie

It’s really long- Elliott

There might be giants – Louie

He needs to climb to the top- Evie

As we approach our ‘growing’ season, we decided to plant our own beans to see how long it will take them to grow. Over the next few weeks we will observe, discuss and draw how our plants have changed. Exciting!


In maths, we’ve been learning about the number 3.  We looked at 3 spots on a dice, 3 counters on a five frame and spotted that there were 3 corners and sides on a triangle.

Help at home: Have a look to see if you can find groups of three things around your home.  Can you spot the number three on any house doors or number plates? We also liked watching this song all about the number 3.

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

Next week, we’re learning about growing up and looking at how we change as we get older.

It would be great if we could look at some photographs of children when they were babies and toddlers. If you are able to, please send us an email with one photograph of your child as a baby and one photograph of them as a toddler. We’ll use these in group time and will also be adding them to our Home Corner family display.


This week sound/s was: ‘U’ for Umbrella

Rhyme of the week: Baa Baa black sheep



Born of the Forest has officially finished for Nursery- so a big thank you to Shaun!  The children have enjoyed it so much we have decided to continue our own forest school sessions, these will now be on a Tuesday starting 27 February. Your child can come in their PE kit or some comfy clothes.

You are more than welcome to leave these at school for the rest of term!

Have a super weekend!
