WOW, So Proud!

Below are downloadable Bumblebee and Dragonfly WOW templates. Are you proud of your child for something they have done recently? Please write it on a bumblebee or dragonfly and send it into school so we can share it in class and celebrate your child! 


Our Work

A few photographs of our wonderful setting!

We are very much looking forward to welcoming all the new children to Miers Court. Keep an eye on this page for updates of our learning and how the children are getting on!


The Colour Monster

We have been reading and listening to the story ‘The Colour Monster’ to learn about feelings and emotions. 💛💙❤️💚🖤💗

Here’s a link to the story https://youtu.be/Ih0iu80u04Y 


Spooooooooky! 👻 

This week the children have shown an interest and excitement for Halloween, so we set up lots of spooky activities for them to explore. We have had some amazing spooky chalk pictures, lots of ‘ewwws’ and ‘yucks’ as they explored the slime, we’ve listened to spooky stories, threaded spider webs, cast pretend spells on each other, mixed potions, ridden on broomsticks and more! 


Black History Month: Alma Woodsey Thomas 

During our carpet session the children learnt about an artist named Alma Woodsey Thomas, as part of Black History Month. The children then created some wonderful pieces of artwork inspired by Alma during their discovery time. 


Lest we forget

At 11am the school bells were rung and children and staff observed the two minute silence to remember those who have lost their lives in conflict. Over the last week, the children have been busy creating memorial wreaths which are now proudly on display. They have also been undertaking Remembrance Day activities, learning more about the meaning behind the poppy.

Year R worked in virtual collaboration with Rainbow and created the poppies which are displayed on the school gate. We hope you enjoyed seeing them.

We will remember.

Happy Diwali 

To all our families celebrating this weekend, we’d like to wish you a Diwali that brings joy, prosperity and happiness to you and your family.
