Goldilocks and The Three Bears

Goldilocks and The Three Bears

Wow, what a busy and full week it has been! Your children have all done so well for their first full week at school and will probably be very tired!

We have been focusing on the story of ‘Goldilocks and The Three Bears’, which is a very popular story with the children. We have also learnt the signs for ‘baby’, and ‘bear’.

The children are starting to get used to our routines in school and are becoming very good at washing their hands. We have also been practising our listening ears and looking eyes when sitting on the carpet. During independent learning, the children are becoming confident with navigating around the different spaces where they have been cooking a variety of delicious meals in the role-play kitchen, creating stories in our small world play and drawing colourful drawings.

The children are now becoming confident with going to the hall to have their lunch and remembering to say thank you when their food is given to them. To further support their independence, perhaps you can practise using a knife and fork when they are eating their meals at home.

Please have a look at the Home Learning that has been attached to find some fun activities to do at home.

A few reminders:

  • Please could you check that your child’s uniform and any bags are named.
  • We are approaching that time of year where we all have lots of sniffles. Therefore, we would greatly apprecitae a donation of a box of tissues.
  • We are asking for £3 contributions towards buying ingredients for cooking. These can be made via the School Gateway app.

Thank you

Nursery – Goldilocks and The Three Bears

We have had a brilliant first full week in the Nursery this week; the children have been very busy and are now probably feeling rather tired!

Our focus story has been the ever popular ‘Goldilocks and The Three Bears’ which was a familiar one for many children. Linking with our story this week, we have been filling different sized containers with oats to make ‘porridge’ for the three bears. We have made loud and quiet sounds with our voices and musical instruments to match the voices of the bears. We have also learnt a couple of Goldilocks songs, which was a lot of fun.

As well as these activities linking to our story, we have been very busy continuing to get to know one another, including learning the names of our classmates and all the adults in our setting. We have been familiarising ourselves with our school routines and becoming much more confident navigating our way around. During our carpet times, we have been working on our looking and listening skills too, which are improving each day!
