Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day!

Sunday was Father’s Day so last week we were busy making things for our dads. We made cards and drew a picture of our dad (or a special grown-up like granddad or uncle) and inside we thought about why we loved them.

Then we made medals for our dads and cut out pictures of things we thought our daddies would like and decorated them. On the back we thought about why our daddy had got the medal and what he was the best at.

Some daddies were the best at making dinner or giving cuddles or telling jokes or reading stories.

Today was our special Father’s Day Event.¬†We invited all of our dads, granddads, big brothers and uncles to come to school and play games with us and what a sunny day it was!


We had a lovely time playing ball games and going on the park with our grown-ups.


Thank you to everyone who came we had a lovely afternoon and we hope you did too!


Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day

Yesterday was our Mother’s Day Celebration. To celebrate we made cards for our mummies. We drew pictures of our mummies and thought about what they looked like, what colour their eyes and hair were and what they like to wear. We chose how we wanted to decorate our cards.


Then we made our mummies a special present. We used clay to make a sculpture that we thought our mummies would like. We added jewels and stars and beads to make them extra special.


Then we learnt a special song to sing to our mummies for Mother’s Day. It was called Skidamarink…

Skidamarink a dink a dink, Skidamarink a do, I love you

Skidamarink a dink a dink, Skidamarink a do, I love you

I love you in the morning and in the afternoon, I love you in the evening and underneath the moon,

Skidamarink a dink a dink, Skidamarink a do, I love you, I love you too boo boo bi doo!

We performed our song for our mummies and gave them presents


We hope you enjoyed our special performance, thank you to everybody who came. Here are some of the reasons why you are special…



Christmas Party!

Christmas Party!

Yesterday was our Christmas Party! We had lots of fun and a very special visitor…

Santa came to see us at our party! We were all very excited to see him and had lots of questions…

E – How did you get here?

T – Where is your sleigh?

L – Did you park it?

H – Where are your reindeer?

A – Do you know what your reindeer are called?

T – Is Rudolph the leader?

A – Are there two Santas? I think I’ve seen another at Meadowhall.

A – Do you live at Meadowhall?

R – Do you live somewhere cold?

J – Did you get our letters?

M – How many reindeer have you got?

E – Will you remember to come to our houses?

We reminded Santa about the letters we wrote to him last week and told him all the things we wanted for Christmas. Santa even brought us a present to share in nursery! Finally we sang Jingle Bells to Santa before he had to go.

After seeing Santa we played some dancing games. We listening to Christmas songs and had a dancing competition, played musical statues and musical bumps!

Then we had a GIANT Pass the Parcel and everybody won a prize!

Finally we went back down to our classroom and had some delicious party food that everybody had brought in to share. Then the morning and beginning of the week children went home and we did it all again in the afternoon!


We had a very busy day but it was lots of fun. We hope everybody enjoyed the Christmas Party and that you all have a lovely Christmas!

Guessing presents


On our quiet table this week have had lots of mystery presents. We wrapped objects from the classroom in foil then tried to guess what they might be.

We weren’t allowed to unwrap the presents so we had to look. feel and listen to the presents. We even tried to smell them to give us a clue!


We tried to work out what we thought they might be by their shape and texture and whether they made a sound.

We did lots of describing to talk about the presents. Sometimes we agreed with our friends and sometimes we didn’t.

At the end we had a look to see if we were right.
