New Term!

We have hit the ground running at Nursery this term!

As I mentioned in my last post, we are learning about Giles Andreae and we are specifically focusing on his book, Commotion in the Ocean!

We have been making our own mixed media ocean scenes with Miss Leslie:

Some of us turned our pictures into something we could wear!

We have been playing in our water tray ocean:

And some of us have even been wearing clothes that fit the theme!

We have been looking at real oceans and learning about the different creatures that live there:

And we’ve been reading lots of fantastic ocean themed stories!


Great work everyone!

Author Study

To kick off the new term we are participating in the whole school Author Study! We have chosen Giles Andreae as our author and we are reading lots of his fantastic rhyming stories!

Our focus is his popular story, Commotion in the Ocean!

The children will be learning about the animals who live in and around the oceans and seas. They will using this context to learn about rhyming words and descriptive language. We will be using music and movement as a way to express our ideas and thoughts about the book as well as making our own animals using different art and craft techniques!

You can listen to the story here:


Happy Reading!
