Chinese New Year

We’ve had a fantastic time learning about how Chinese New Year is Celebrated, Some of us had a go at making Chinese instruments and we all worked together to make a big Chinese dragon.

We also sampled some Chinese food, the chop sticks were very tricky to use but we all had a really good try!

Sensory play

We’ve began our journey in learning all about shapes. Today we used our lightbox to explore the first shapes we are looking at. We looked at a circle, triangle, square, and a rectangle. We counted all the sides and talked about what made them different too.

Learning Journey

We work very hard here in FS1 we even work hard at home by completing activities in our learning journey every week.

These super children have worked extra hard to bring back their Learning Journey every week this term! For their hard work they all received a certificate and a selection from our super special prize box.

Well done Busy Bees!

One frosty morning

Jack Frost has visited over night!

Our outside area was very frosty this morning so we decided to head out a see what we could find.

We found some crispy leaves and crunchy grass. We spotted some ice, it was super cold to touch. We also spotted how we could see our warm breath in the cold weather.

After our exploring we quickly headed inside to get nice and warm and have our milk.

A visit from an elf!

We wrote a letter to Santa asking him very nicely if we could have an elf come to visit and to our surprise one did!

This is Tinker, he is going to stay with us until Christmas and report back to Santa how good we are.

Although he is very cheeky and keeps making a mess in our classroom!

A Letter from Santa

This week saw the grand opening of Kexborough Nursery’s Post Office and to properly get in to the spirit of things we decided to write a letter together to the one and only Santa!

We worked together to think of questions to ask and of course the question we decided on was “Will you come and visit us?”

We arrived to a big surprise when we saw that Santa had sent us a letter back! Hes a little too busy to visit us right now but he asked if we would like an Elf to come and visit. Which of course we eagerly accepted!


You can count on us we’re the numberblocks!

We’ve been gaining a deeper understanding of numbers, with help from the numberblocks!

So far we have met 1, 2, and now 3. Look how well we did at making the Numberblocks!

Children in Need

BBC Children in Need exists to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Their vision is that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood and the chance to reach their potential.

BBC Children in Need is currently supporting over 2,800 projects in communities across the UK that are helping children and young people facing a range of disadvantages such as living in poverty, being disabled or ill, or experiencing distress, neglect or trauma. In the last grant year alone, support has helped change the lives of over 589,000 disadvantaged children and young people, right here in the UK.

Today, our children dressed up and brought in a voluntary contribution which will all be set off to Pudsey and his team. We raised a fantastic £202.10 so thank you to everybody that contributed.
