We have extended our A&E department this week with the arrival of an ambulance. The children have been writing out prescriptions and administering emergency first aid. I have had my leg bandaged and my ears syringed. I think they have delivered several babies as well.
We have also been encouraging the children to retell stories and we have been writing stories for them that they have drawn. The children's literacy skills are developing as they practice their phonics skills during child initiated play.
Next week we are going to be applying our phonics skills with some I spy games focused on 8 toys. We would also like to walk to the woods. Please come along on Monday if you can spare the time.
If you still have your child's learning journey could you please bring it back in so that we can continue with our observations.
Have a good weekend.

This week we have made some changes to our room. We have made a new role play home area which the children are really enjoying. We have been observing them and the communication and language is amazing. We have also noticed how developed their social interactions are. In every area of the unit we have mixed groups of nursery and reception children who are all sharing their experiences and using them to play.
Next week we are going to be extending our outside area to include some building constructions. Who knows what they will make!!!!!!!
We would also like to go to the woods but we don't seem to be getting any volunteers to help. If you can spare the time please come along as the children get so much out of this activity and we can only go if we have enough help.
I have sent the learning journeys home some please can you return them ASAP so we can continue to use them for our observations.
Have a good weekend.

Happy New Year and welcome back.
The children were all full of enthusiasm this week and it was lovely to see them settle straight back into their learning. We have had lots of discussion about Christmas and what they have been doing at home.
 Next week I am going to send to learning journeys home. Could you please put something in the book. This does not have to be Christmas it can be anything that you have been doing outside of school. I would be grateful if you could return the books ASAP after that so that we can continue with their observations.
On Monday we will try and go to the woods, weather permitting so if you can help please come along. We will leave at 8.50am and return at 10.00am.
Have a great weekend.

We have had such a busy week at school with our performance and Christmas lunch. The children have coped really well with the changes but I think they are all ready for a break. We had a lovely exciting day in the snow with lots of fun touching, tasting and listening to it melting. We also enjoyed sledging!!!
 Next week will still be busy with the party. Please can you send in a small amount of food to share. The children will be seeing Papa Noel so please speak to me if you have any concerns. I will leave you with some lovely winter photos. Check out receptions blog as they will have some more photo's.
Have a nice weekend.

It was lovely to walk to the woods this week and thank you to all the parents and grandparents that helped. We will be starting again after the holidays so please come along if you can spare the time.
Christmas has officially arrive in the unit and we are all enjoying the preparation. The children have written letters to Santa and have posted them at the local post box.
We have been practising our songs and I am sure you are all familiar with them at home!!!!!!
When we do our performance some children get a bit upset when they see you. Please be reassured that we will not leave them on the stage crying. We will support them through it. If you have any concerns about this please speak to me.
I have put a list of the dates for the next week on the door just to remind you of what is happening.
Have a great weekend.
