‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Spring Term B

Week 2  Self Isolation Home Learning

The Tale of Peter Rabbit

Lots of egg-citing Easter themed learning this week.  Nursery listened to the story "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" by Beatrix Potter, decorated eggs, made some fabulous Easter crafts and completed baking challenges.  Happy Easter Everyone!

Week 1 Self Isolation Home Learning

 Farmer Duck

Our home learning challenges had a farm theme this week.  We listened to the story of poor "Farmer Duck" by Martin Waddell.  He works hard on a farm all day and all night, while the Lazy Farmer lies in bed and eats chocolate. However, by the end of the story the Lazy Farmer gets his comeuppance when the other farm animals decide to teach him a lesson!  Taking inspiration from the story we learned about farm animals, jobs on the farm, mother and baby animals, animals homes and took part in a 'Do the Duck' dance. 

Welcome Back Everyone!

Week 1 and 2

 On the Farm

It was so nice to welcome everyone back to school this week and see their smiling faces.  The children have come back with a great attitude and have worked really hard.  Nursery have been naming farm animals, describing them, finding out where they live, what they eat, what noises they make and how they move.  

Lockdown Week 8


To celebrate World Book Day we listened to "Gigantosaurus" by Jonny Duddle.  Our book challenges were to get creative and make a bookmark, build a reading den and cosy up to read, get crafty and make a mask of your favourite book character and read in an unusual place. We also learned dinosaur facts, counted dinosaurs, made salt dough fossils and joined in with the dance Dinosaur Stomp!

Lockdown Week 7

 How I Became a Pirate

Ahoy me hearties!  We listened to the story "How I Became a Pirate" by Melinda Long and have had lots of fun learning about pirates.  We made our own pirate hats, danced with the crew, designed a flag and helped to count treasure.
