Today we have had lots of fun celebrating World Book Day. The children came to school in amazing costumes…
We loved decorating our door. We have been reading the story ‘Where’s Spot?’ this week so we changed it around a bit to be ‘Where’s Nursery?’
We thought of different things that we could hide behind, under, on or in. Then we made them and stuck them to the door so we could lift the flaps. Children even made their own bits to add in their independent learning, see if you can spot Lois’s chair, Freya’s Duplo house and Blake’s tower.
Children took a camera around school and took photos of some of the adults in school. They had to wait until they saw an adult and then say ‘Can we take your picture?’ We cut out the photos of the grown ups and hid them on our door, do you recognise anybody?

While the children were playing Miss Hulme asked if anybody had a story to tell her. The children all came and waited for their turn to share their own story. Lots of children made up stories about the character they were dressed as. At group time we all worked together to act out everybody’s stories…
Once upon a time there was a big dragon then he said he would eat the princess. She said, “Don’t eat me I am a princess” The dragon said “I give up, I get you tomorrow”
Sophie’s Story – The Queen
Once upon a time the queen was going to go and save Rapunzel from the tower. Then the king was looking for Rapunzel and then he went to the castle. He went to the castle and he save her and he marry Rapunzel. The queen meet her daughter Rapunzel.
Once upon a time I went to a cowgirl’s house then I met the cowgirl and then I went to a big horse with the cowgirl. The cowgirl fell off then she had some blood then she went to the doctor and the doctor made her feel better.
Elsa she can make magic outside. Put her hand and do magic. She walk to beach she got to water and make ice, everybody is going to water, is freezing!
A gorilla eats nuts then the big bad wolf come and eat him up, all by himself. DINNER, DINNER, DINNER! Happy ever after.
Once upon a time there was a big big white cat, he’s actually a rabbit. He goes home plays bouncy balls. The End.
We have been learning to…
- describe where things are such as under, behind or next to
- use scissors and glue safely and carefully
- work together to make a shared piece of work, listening to each other’s ideas
- speak to new adults in school and ask questions
- use the camera to take pictures
- tell stories and understand how stories work
- understand what a character is
How can you continue learning at home?
The children loved making up their own stories and everybody thought of a story to tell on the spot. Why not tell stories together at home? You could just make them up or you could use dolls or puppets, you could change the endings to books you have at home or mix up the characters from your favourite stories.
