Today we finished off our Gymnastics lessons by learning lots of new skills using our wall bars, benches and mats. We practised our climbing, balancing and rolling and had fun swinging and sliding.

Our new topic is Pirates. We have been learning all about Pirates through play. We have enjoyed going on adventures in our Pirate ship in our classroom, making treasure maps and drawing ships. Making ships from construction materials and using play dough to make Pirate models. We have a treasure island in our sand tray and have been enjoying reading and watching different Pirate stories.

World book Day 2023... We enjoyed an assembly to see everyone’s costumes, a parade outside with Nursery, reading lots of stories and having stories read to us online. What a fun day, well done to everyone on your fantastic costumes!

Today we went on a Bear Hunt around school 🙂
