We have enjoyed another exciting week as we have continued getting to know each other and have become more familiar with the classroom and outdoor setting. The children are responding really well to some of the new changes to their routine and are becoming so much more independent.  Our story for the week as been ‘The Colour Monster’ you may wish to watch it by following the link below.


  • We have had practised our cutting skills and made our own colour monsters.
  • We have talked about our families and who we live with.
  • In letters and Sounds we have been listening carefully to words that begin with the same letter ‘Alliteration’.
  • We have been singing number and counting songs, using fingers, actions and objects to represent numbers.
  • We have worked together to create a collaborative piece of art work, we are so proud of it, the children mixed colours and learnt to ‘dip and dab’ PVA glue to embellish it.
  • We have played board games and learnt to take turns.
  • We have learnt about the school rules ‘Be Ready, Be Respectful and Be Safe’ and what they mean.
