Stay and Play

The focus was measuring and comparing objects whilst using the language of longer and shorter. The longest paper chain was 23 loops long but this was beaten the following day by a group of children working together.

Being Friends


Feeling Proud


Trying to free Spiderman from the web using tweezers. 

Using tweezers makes us use the ends of our fingers which helps us to hold a pencil correctly to write or draw.


Miss Winrow is our Class Governor.

Miss Winrow calls in to class to see what we have been learning. Sometimes she gives us one of her special stickers.

Whilst making salt dough the children showed good listening, turn-taking, focus and concentration. This activity helped strengthen muscles in our fingers which will help with our writing development. By reading and following the recipe we had to use our phonic skills and counting skills otherwise it wouldn’t have worked. We will use the dough now for dough disco! I will put the recipe in the newsletter if you would like to try and make it at home.








We visited the local park to look for signs of Autumn. We found a tiny leaf hanging from a spider’s web which we tried to reach.

We also had the opportunity to show off our physical skills.
