Sycamore class really enjoyed visiting the fire engine last week. They were excited to climb up into the truck, try on the safety helment and, best of all, having a chance to spay the hose!! We enjoyed learning lots of interesting facts about fire engines and the important jobs that fire fighters do. Trying on the safety helmets: Using the hose:
As we have been focusing on Goldilocks and the three bears as one of our favourite texts, the children have found it incredibly interesting to read it for themselves. Not only do we have several different copies with various different pictures, we also have a range of different places that we read. Today we have chosen to take our big book outside and help our friends enjoy the book together. After a long and enjoyable experience of the book, some of our children like to rela
We had a great time meeting the firefighters who came to our school. They let us wear a helmet and sit in their fire engine. They told us about the equipment they carry and then they let us have a go with the hose. We had lots of fun learning about fire fighters and what they do.

Our daily routine is starting to form and the childr

This is experience is a wonderful sensory exploration into the world of volumes, mixing, moving, building and using tools to alter the state of materials in front of us. It is lovely to see the children helping each other and working as a team to fill our various containers up as well as using the wet sand to construct all sorts of wonderful creations that we can all b
During our first couple of weeks in Nursery we have been learning all about the space around us. We have found our favourite things to use and learn with, we have found our feet for running and we have certainly found our voices amongst our new friends. Using Goldilocks as a familiar text, the children have been exploring the endless possibilities that the book presents. We have been dancing, singing, reading, building and generally enjoying each and every aspect within the w
