Spotlight on Nursery

Posted: 21st June 2024

The children have continued to enjoy their topic learning about safari and zoo animals this week, with a focus on lions. We have read the story of The Lion and the Mouse by Jerry Pinkney and have also enjoyed watching animations of this tale, which have helped it to come alive! We have had lots of lovely discussions about how the animals were kind to each other and why it is so important to help and look after our friends. In literacy, we have practised our listening skills by guessing which animal sounds we can hear at the zoo. We have continued to learn more phase 3 letter sounds in phonics and the children have enjoyed trying to write the initial sounds of different animal names. In mathematics, we have been learning all about the sequence of events and what actions come first, next or last. They have used pictures to help them understand this concept, putting various different events in time order, such as making an ice-cream and brushing our teeth. The children have loved creating some lion artwork this week and have used a variety of materials to help them. We are very much looking forward to learning about other animals before the end of term!

Possible loss of functionality to our portals

Please note that there is a widespread technical issue with CrowdStrike’s software which has led to a global outage affecting various sectors, including planes, railways, and iSAMS servers and communications. This may mean that parents of the school might not be able to use their parent portal currently and some other parts of our site might not work as well as they normally do.

We urge you to take a well-earned break and check back in on Monday when hopefully things will be working again.
