Welcome back, we hope you had some great family time and are ready to take on our new story topic,  Elmer the Elephant.

It is about an elephant who learns how to form positive relationships and accepts  others. Children will be encouraged to work together to find ways of solving simple problems. We will be exploring animals in the wild and looking at camouflage. Please check the board outside the nursery for updates.

They will be making their own maps of the school and maps of the other country. In Maths the children will be revising their knowledge of number bonds to and within 5 and to and within 10.
