Our learning journey

Look here for weekly updates on our learning!

15th October 2021


This week we have been thinking about tigers in preparation for Arts week next week. We have loved reading the story of The Tiger Who Came To Tea, and drew some fabulous tigers for our display. We really thought carefully about all the features we would need to include.


We then decided to make the tiger some food. We had lots of fruit left in our bowl in the classroom, so made him a pear and apple crumble. We had to use our strong fingers to rub the butter and flour together and added lots of sugar because we thought the tiger might like that!

We had to taste test it first of course!!!



Makaton for 'tiger' 🐯

8th October 2021

This week we have been playing outside and watching as the season changes into autumn. We have noticed how the leaves have started to fall from the trees and we have needed to wear our coats outside much more too!


We took advantage of the lovely weather to head to the park to play too, we really enjoyed having a walk with our friends and climbing on the big equipment! 


We have been honing our motor skills too by warming up with some delicious toast, and practising buttering it all by ourselves. Delicious!



This week, we have learnt the Makaton for 'Toys' 🐻⚽🚂

1st October 2021


This week we have been thinking about ourselves and our families some more. We have really enjoyed reading Monkey Puzzle and talking some more about our family, who they are and what they look like.

We have been practising our good listening skills too, and listening carefully to instructions as we made some chocolate cornflake cakes! They were yummy!

Thank You - Makaton Sign of the Week

This week we have learnt the sign for thank you.

24th September 2021


This week we have been learning about ourselves and made some fabulous pictures of our faces. We looked in a mirror and thought about what we could see! Two eyes, one nose, two ears, a mouth, some of us even discovered our eyebrows!


We welcomed the Stick Insects back to Lady bird Class after their little holiday with Mrs Ford! They enjoyed their time away and are now busy meeting lots of new friends at Weyford!


Miss Arnold told us that Duggee and Joe Wicks were now friends and had made some super fun videos for us to try! Today we got all warmed up by making sparkly rainbows in the sky!

It was lots of fun!


Makaton for 'Ladybird' 🐞

This week we learnt the makaton sign for ladybird!

17th September 2021


We have welcomed more new friends this week and have been having great fun playing with friends from Butterfly and Caterpillar class outside too. 


We have enjoyed playing with the new bark chipping digger area, and thought the new astro turf by the gate was fabulous for playing Duck Duck Goose too!!



Friend - Makaton Sign of the Week

Our sign of the week this week is 'friend'.

10th September 2021


Our first week back has been full of fun! We have met lots of new friends, have been enjoying discovering all of our toys and playing outside. We are so excited to have the whole playground to use with our friends in Reception too. We have been whizzing around on the bikes and making lots of mud pies in the mud kitchen. 


CBeebies: Something Special - Hello Song

We try and learn at least one Makaton sign each week. This week, we have learnt the sign for hello! We sing our special hello song each morning. Can you join in too?


Ladybird Class are the proud winners of the Town in Bloom Scarecrow Contest!

Well done to all the children in our nursery!
