Learning Journey

Our first Christmas Nativity, ‘Shine Star Shine’ was a huge success. We worked so hard to make it a performance to remember and were thrilled to see so many smiling members of our families in the audience. 

There has been lots of huffing and puffing as the children used the story props to retell the story of the three little pigs.  It was great to see the children using language from the well known tale as they retold it in their own words.  We found out that building the three houses was really tricky too!

In our number fun sessions, we have been learning all about repeating patterns.  We created a repeating pattern and elephant ears to turn into our very own Elmer hat! We had lots of fun as we took part in the elephant parade in the playground. 

There has been lots of counting going on in Moles and Hedgehogs, we have been practising counting objects to 5 and beyond.  As well as this, we have learnt to recognise the numerals 0-5 and 0-10 and put them in the right order too.

Lots of initial sounds to find in the trays!  We have been using our phonic knowledge to mark make and write initial sounds in different materials.

 PE fun!  We have really been enjoying our outdoor PE sessions.  Our throwing and catching skills are improving every week!

 We have had a super start to the year in Mole and Hedgehog Class.  All of the children have settled in wonderfully and are thoroughly enjoying all of the new experiences on offer.  We have been getting to know one another and making lots of new friends.  The children have particularly enjoyed sharing their play times with the older boys and girls and we are all very proud of how they have taken on the new routines so quickly.  Well done everyone!
