We love reading books!

Morning Nursery practise holding books, turning pages carefully and ‘reading’ stories. They are trying really hard to make meaning from pictures and imitate reading. This is a very important skill that they learn from sharing books with adults, and discussing the stories. 18th November 2019

We have been learning about squirrels.  Ask your children to tell you what they know.  We read this lovely book to learn a few facts.  (Squirrels by Brian Wildsmith)

Thank you to those of you who have paid snack money for the term and to those of you who have already sent in labelled wellington boots.  We have enjoyed exploring the 'Wild Area' and going on Autumn adventures this week - photos to follow.


One of the books we have read this week is 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddell, a beautifully written and illustrated book.  If you have it, read it again at home.


Reminder - please help us by ensuring that your child’s name is in all clothing and bags, including coats.  We want to avoid any mix-ups with uniform.  The children sometimes take off their cardigans and jumpers if they are hot, or if they are painting or doing something messy and, unless clearly labelled, it is difficult to reunite the correct items of clothing with the children.  Thank you for helping us with this.

One of the books we have read this week is ‘Peace at Last’ by Jill Murphy.  If you have it at home, or can borrow it from the library, you could share the story at home.  Children love hearing stories repeated and joining in.  This one is about Mr Bear trying to find somewhere to sleep.
