TA’s- Miss Gregory and Miss Austen
This half term in nursery, We have been so excited to welcome our new pupils and helping them get to know each other! We have also been learning nursery rhymes – Humpty Dumpty and Wheels on the bus so far! The children have enjoyed exploring the different areas in the classroom and mark making on the interactive whiteboard.
In our news-telling session, pupils have been telling their friends what they did at the weekend with their mouse. They had to take their mouse home, take pictures and write comments in the book to explain what they did. All the children enjoyed looking at the photos and comments about what them and the mouse had been up to!
