Our superhero friends at home

England (england) on: England Blog

Last week some of our Superhero friends went home with some children. We chose 2 children per session to send the heroes home with.  These children demonstrated excellent growth mind-sets.

Below are some pictures of their learning at home and how they cared for their hero.


We choose new children to take home the hero every week so please check back for photographs of your child.  If your child has taken the hero you can email photographs to

Thank you,

Mr Tunnell

We have had another lovely week in Nursery. We have been thinking a lot about being lonely and how we can help our friends when they feel this way.  We have read our story 'Little beaver and the echo' and talked about making new friends.

Please check your child's tray for their special whole school homework.  Our school anti-bullying council has discussed the idea of a friendship bench or bus stop in each playground.  We would like some ideas from home how to design these. Each child has a piece of card in their tray to design a bench or bus stop.  

We have also started to learn our nativity songs.  Our nativity will be on Wednesday 14th December at 9:15am and 2:15pm.  We will send a letter home to parents soon.

You can pick up copies of our songs from the ‘Try at home’ board or download them here.  Please sing them with your child and if you are struggling with the tune, speak to a member of the Nursery team. 

Next week we are starting our new topic of ‘Christmas.’  We are thinking about the Christmas story and will read ‘The first Christmas, ‘by Rod Cambell.    Over the coming weeks we will continue to think about Christmas and have special visitors to share with us the importance of Christmas.

Finally we would like to thank our parents for continuing to support us at Sign and Sing time.  More and more parents are coming each week which is lovely to see and I know the children really appreciate it.  If you would like to pop along the times are 11:00am and 2:30pm. 

Thank you

Our fabulous models

England (england) on: England Blog

We have been busy making models in Nursery. We thought about what we wanted to make before we started and discussed this with our friends.

We kept many of the models for the children to talk and write about later.

The children tried very hard to make the model perfect and spent a long time working together to find the correct pieces.

We have been learning our story, 'Pumpkin soup.'  

We learned some actions/signs to help us remember the story. We found that using signs alongside the story helped us to remember it better.

We have been reciting it together in a group and used a story map to help us tell the story.

You can download a copy of the story by clicking this link. 

Why not drop by on a Wednesday to our sign and sing session? We will be practising our T4W story each week at that time. We hope to see you there. (11:30am and 2:30pm)

We have had another lovely week in Nursery. The snow was a wonderful surprise on Wednesday which led to lots of activities in the Nursery as well as plenty of conversation.  

Our story this week has been Leaf hunt and we have talk about last week's walk around Drighlington.

We have been trying to improve our speaking and listening skills this week whilst playing with our friends.  We have also been focusing on what we can do to help other children who are feeling sad or worried.  

Next week our story will be 'Little beaver and the Echo.'  Click here to view the story on YouTube

We are starting to learn some Christmas songs next week as well as writing our own story maps for our T4W (Talk4Writing) story.  

Parent's evening will be held on Monday 14th November 3:30-6pm.  There are no fixed appointments but there is an opportunity for you to look through your child's learning journey whilst you wait. If you prefer, you can ask to see Mr Tunnell or your child's key person at another, convenient time for you.
