Our Learning

What do I look like?

Our new project, ‘All About Me’, is well underway and we are enjoying learning lots of things about our children. Each week we will focus on a question to help us with our learning about ourselves and our friends. This week we have been thinking about the way we look. We have been using special vocabulary to describe our faces and have been presenting our ideas in different ways.

Henry said, “I have got blue eyes.”

Alex said, “My hair is curly.”

Belle said, “My lips are rosy pink.”


Yesterday all the children got themselves changed for PE. It was a very busy time, but the children listened carefully to the instructions and managed to put all of their PE kit on with minimal help. They were very proud of themselves, and rightfully so! Well done everyone!

Lunch Time

The children always look forward to lunch time. They have responded very well to the lunch time routine and it has been lovely to see such happy faces when they are filling their tummies!
