Happy New Year friends!
Children have returned happy and engaged, full of their news.
We have also started to welcome new friends to nursery and we look forward to getting to know all of our new families well over coming weeks.
The learning that has started this week has included sustained model making: children have talked through their ideas and drawn up plans. Next they selected the resources they needed and used a variety of methods to attach pieces.
Children were able to sustain concentration and share resources.
In Bluebell class, some of the more experienced children have been supported in mark making: many have been interested in writing sounds they have been focusing on in their phonics groups at story time.
Our Shoppers of the Week were supported to write their shopping lists, count their money and do our shopping locally.
This really is a great opportunity to share talk and build confidence.
In the garden there has been focused work around bike maintenance: see separate blog!
