We have had a busy
month so far. We have been making and creating things for Valentine’s day.
We have decorated hearts that we have cut out by ourselves. We also sent
some red card hearts home to be decorated. We have had some really
beautiful hearts back, they look amazing and really cheer up the stairs.
Thank you so much, they’re amazing!
Chinese new year we created some lanterns using red and yellow card as
these are lucky colours in Chinese culture. 2019 is the Chinese year of the
PIG so to celebrate we have created pictures of Pigs.
To compliment our
book of the month, Handa’s Surprise, we have been learning about the
different fruits that Handa carries on her head. We have also been dressing
like Handa and practicing carrying baskets on our heads with fruit in them
just like Handa!
We have been
learning which colours we can mix to make our colour of the month, ORANGE.
We are also learning how to form the letter h and the number 2and have been doing
lots of activities and games to support us to become familiar with them.
Some of us are getting really good at recognising the number 2!!
The 2 year olds have been reading Rosie’s walk which is a really
fun book with very few words in it, all about a hen walking around the farm
and the fox following her around trying to catch her!
Outside we are enjoying watching for signs of spring arriving such
as snowdrops, daffodils, crocus’s and buds coming out on the plants and

So far this month
the babies have been really busy. We have been learning what sound a Pig
makes as we are celebrating Chinese new year and our book of the month is
currently ‘’That’s not my Piglet’’.
We have been using
paint and a whole range of other materials to create our own pigs.
Our song of the
month is currently Twinkle, Twinkle little star. We have loved learning the
song and doing the actions. We are now getting really good at sitting in a
We really enjoyed
the snow and ice when it came and as long as it lasted. We enjoyed feeling
and touching the snow and ice outside, feeling the cold!
We have had the
middle room upstairs repainted and it’s looking much better. We have been
working hard to create displays to put up on our fresh boards. The babies
are enjoying looking at the new displays as they are now all at the right
level for them to see and interact with.
