Welcome back!

 Happy New Year 2021.

Over the last 2 weeks we have welcomed back a few Butterflies into our classroom, who have been joined on- line at  10am every morning by our home learning children, so we can sing together as a group.  Then again at 2pm everyday we meet on- line for story time with Miss Hayden!

As the weather has been snowy, We have made snow pictures in school using white paint, cottonwool and silver glitter.

We practised our cutting skills by making lots of snowflakes.

At singing time we played musical instruments when marching to The Grand Old Duke of York!


What a busy week! First we had Christmas lunch was was delicious We went on a Christmas Forest Trail and saw lots of decorations and twinkly lights on the trees. We also had Hot Chocolate at the end of the trail and got a selection box as a treat! Happy Christmas everyone!

Christmas party time! We danced, played games and had lots of party food.

Butterflies have read lots of stories this week.,Our favourite is 'Peace at Last'. We have mixed colours, decorated our Christmas tree, lots of mark making again and music indoors and outdoors!

We baked cakes this week then had a teaparty with a tiger! We also walked through the jungle to see what we could see and hear. The children enjoyed lots of mark making,climbing and painting.

We have had a busy Nursery Rhyme week. We explored a mini bus, made lots of frogs and mice, played farms and looked after a poorly dolly and made her some biscuits!

Lots of adventures this week. We pretended we were Doctors, we had lots of messy play, digging in the garden, playing in the mud kitchen and lots more!

The children have enjoyed sharing the story 'Peppa's vegetable garden' so we decided to plant some cress seeds and watch them grow! We also fed the birds this week and made a lovely picture of the Nursery rhyme 'Two little dickie birds sitting on the wall'. We have enjoyed playing in the leaves, building towers and lots of small world play!

This week we have dressed up as spooky characters, made magic wands and decorated scary biscuits. we have also climbed, danced, splashed and played! Happy days!

We have explored the water this week, played in the Role play area and had a picnic. Made towers with the blocks and went on a train journey. Read lots of stories and printed with leaves and apples! Another funfilled week for the Butterflies!

This week we made vegetable soup! We peeled and chopped some vegetables to put into it. We also had toast!.Lots of lovely learning indoors and outdoors again this week.

What a busy week! We had another visit to the chickens. We then made a healthy snack of scrambled eggs, toast and cereal., it was yummy! We also made kites, played musical instruments, sang lots of songs and enjoyed our play!

Lots of climbing,balancing, sliding, splashing, painting and playing in The Butterfly Class this week!
