Badgers, Rabbits and Hedgehogs will be adding regular updates about their learning to this page. Enjoy!


In Music this half term we have been learning the names and sounds of a range of musical instruments. We have also been learning about rhythm by finding the beat of songs as we sing them. We have got very good at marching to 'The Grand Old Duke of York'!


Thank you for the natural autumn items, we have been using them throughout our learning and play this week.

They have been rolled, counted, "cooked", put into patterns and so much more.

More fun to come next week.



This week we are looking at money!

We have looked at the different coins and their names.

If you go shopping it would be great for your child to try and help you give the right change. (providing you have it!) 



This week in our phonics sessions we took part in now press play session. We wore headphones and acted out a story as it was played. The story we became part of this week was Goldilocks. We played the part of baby bear and of Goldilocks. 

It was fantastic fun, and we are looking forward to our next now press play session.



In our curiosity sessions we have made faces on the trees using natural resources, we have explored how to use remote control cars with accuracy and we have discussed the different parts of our body and how these  differ to animal bodies. 



In literacy we have been looking at the book ‘Where the wild things are’. So far we have found out that wild things eat words starting or containing the ‘s’ or ‘a’ sounds. In hedgehogs that meant most of us would get eaten if we ever met a wild thing!



Its been a fantastic first week back and the children have really taken a full week of school in there stride.

There have been a few tears but on the whole we thank you for supporting your child to become more independent.

We've been practicing writing our names, and learnt about some 2D shapes.

We will add some photos once we have been able to review all of your intake forms to ensure we are following your wishes.

Don't forget to check the home learning tab for your homework bingo.

Have a good weekend. See you back on Monday morning.
