Take a look at our children's learning in Fonthill nursery...

Recreating what happens at home. Making cups of tea and dinner for our friends.

Digging in the planter, collecting mud to make a pie for our tea.

The Mud Kitchen provides endless opportunities for imaginary and creative play!

We've been having a great time getting to know our new friends and exploring the nursery environment!

We have been learning about Belly Breathing- letting our minds and bodies relax whilst watching our teddies on our tummies.

We were interested in the courtyard where we do lots of planting and growing. We found apple, pear and plum trees growing there.

We have been looking at our school and our community around us. We enjoyed the walk around the school looking at the different classes, rooms and outdoor areas we have.

We met lots of familiar faces along the way, including Mr Rees, Dave the caretaker and many of our siblings!

We loved the KS2 outdoor playground where we had a go on the climbing equipment. We climbed, rolled and swung our way around!

Our School Library!

Our visit to the school library has now become a weekly experience. The children have created their own library cards to collect and return books. This was inspired from the story we have been reading called 'Luna Loves Library Day'. 

The children took a trip to the Redgrave theatre to watch the production of Dear Santa, based on the book by Rod Campbell. They were engrossed in watching Santa, Elf and Sarah and even got to meet Santa himself to receive a gift! He told the children they had all made the good list and gave them a lovely colouring book to take home.

We have been finding out all about our local community. We wondered where the nearest post box was so took a walk to Pen Park Road to post some letters. We noticed lots of different things on the way, including signs on the road and sign posts too. We even saw shops across the road and a park we all like to visit with our families!
