This little girl worked very hard this afternoon making a beautiful picture, which she named a ‘Flower Garden’. She told Miss O’Malley all about the different parts of her garden, and was so proud of it that she took it around the class to show her friends.
Today in Nursery we began learning about our new top The Three Little Pigs. The objective of today’s lesson was to retell the story using repeated refrains.
After hearing the story, the children went off into the provision to have a go at retelling it through different means. Some children had a great time using the small world Three Little Pigs setting to recreate the story, adding in their own speech and props.
Here is a video of some morning Nursery children retelling the story:
Some afternoon children were very busy in the Construction Area building houses for the Three Little Pigs to live in. They decided that bricks were best material to use as just like in the story, the wolf would not be able to blow it down.

These children were working lovely together this morning to make a jigsaw. With support, they sorted the pieces into the ones that had straight sides, and the ones that did not. They then carefully put the different pieces together to create the outer edge of the jigsaw.
Whilst the children were busy making the inside of the jigsaw, they noticed a problem…there were not enough pieces left to finish it! That meant that some pieces were missing. The children decided to go on a mission around the classroom to try and find the missing pieces so that they could finish their jigsaw. Unfortunately, they were unable to track down the missing pieces, however this whole activity showed great examples of working together and perseverance.
Both Nursery classes have been working very hard in making relationships with different members of their class. We have been talking a lot about how to be a good friend, and we know that sharing and taking it in turns are some ways of how we can be one of these.
The following pictures are some lovely examples of how the children have been working together in their play.
