From Carole, Johanna, Tasha H and the team
Letter of the month: g
Number of the month: 4
Colour of the month: Brown
First of all: Happy New Year! We’d like to give a very warm welcome to
all our new and transitioning children and parents.
So far we are
all really enjoying the Gruffalo, our book of the month. We enjoy reading the
story but also love role playing the story with our friends as well. Our new
starters and transitioners downstairs are doing amazingly and are settling in
To celebrate our colour of the month being brown and our letter of the month being
‘ g’, we have been mixing paint to achieve a lovely brown
colour and then used the paint to create Gruffalo’s. We have also been
identifying what is brown in our environment, inside and outside.
We have been
learning to recognise our number of the month: the numeral 4, counting 4
objects, talking about our friends who are 4. We are also learning how to
write and form the number 4.
If you want to
bring in anything from home to do with either the colour, letter or number of
the month we would really love that and can talk about things from home at
We have loved hearing about the children’s Christmas’s and all the
lovely things that Santa bought them.
As always we are loving the outdoor environment and all the opportunities

From Tasha B, Shannon and the team upstairs
New Year everyone!!
We hope you all had a lovely Christmas, welcome back
everyone and welcome to all our new starters who are all doing brilliantly
and are settling right in.
We are starting the year off as a messy one!! We have
been learning our body parts from the song: Head, shoulders, knees and toes
and have been getting very creative by creating a person for our display and
then painting them and sticking eyes on them.
We have changed our book of the month for January so
it is now: Peepo Baby! We have all been loving this book and are learning
many different single words such as: ‘Dog, teddy, cat, rabbit, house,
blanket.’ We have enjoyed making different objects from the book using a
variety of mark making tools, pencils, coloured dabbers, paint and glitter.
