Our topic this half term has been All About Me. This has allowed the staff to really get to know each child on an individual basis.  We have been recognising numbers of personal significance and been writing our name, trying to hold that pencil correctly, and form our letters with accuracy.

We have discussed the similarities and differences between our home life situations, our pets, our skin colour and  we have all come to the conclusion that being different makes us unique and something to be proud of.  We want to be friends with people who are kind, loving, who will share their toys and who will help us when we struggle or fall So regardless of our differences, if you can be any of these things then we, the Bowness family, welcome you into our class.

We are playing, exploring, creating and being active every single day. Our environment is filled with opportunities to ensure our children can chose how they learn rather than what they learn.  As teachers, we are lucky enough to be able to capture what they learn through discrete observations.

In our English this month we shared the story 'Mr Wolf's Pancakes' together. We created lots of wonderful writing and created our own menus and shopping lists. we even got to have lots of fun making our very own pancakes!! They were delicious.

This month we welcomed some more wonderful children into our nursery class! We have had so much fun. We were all so excited to see that we had lots of snow in our garden area. All of the nursery and reception children joined in with lots of fun in the snow. We made snow pies and snow castles and especially enjoyed mixing colours into the snow in our mud kitchen!!
