The children have been working on their scissor skills this week, when cutting  out the tags to attach to pet collars.  The children then chose names for the pets and wrote them on the collars.  


In maths this week, the children helped to count out different amounts of dog biscuits to feed the dogs.  They worked out the numbers that they didn’t recognise by counting the corresponding number of dots on the pieces of numicon.


Afternoon Nursery were treated this week to a music and movement session led by ‘Little Movers’.  The children loved taking part in the under the sea themed activities that helped to develop their gross motor skills, turn taking and listening skills and creativity.


This week in Nursery, we have been busy setting up a new vet’s surgery role play area.  The children have been finding out about the role of a vet and the other staff that work in the surgery.  They have enjoyed pretending to be receptionists, pet owners and vets.


On Friday, the children in Reception and Nursery had a fantastic treat. The story teller Chris Bostock came to share with us a story called ‘Starlight’. It was about a small possum that had been on a journey to find some crayfish for his ill mother. He met some very interesting characters on the way
