Once upon a time the children in St Anne's Foundation Stage began some special Talk4Writing learning. As part of their Food topic, they focused on learning Nursery Rhymes, Traditional Tales and modern classic children's stories which feature food. They just loved creating their very own story maps, illustrations, new characters and especially acting out the stories. They all lived happily ever after. THE END
We have enjoyed welcoming parents and carers into Nursery for our 'Stay and Play' sessions. We have been sharing ideas to help children will their listening skills, physical development and their counting skills.
'Stay and Play' sessions will continue after Easter each Friday with ideas to support children in their learning. We will be sharing ideas for developing areas such as fine motor skills and early writing (or mark making) so please come and join us.
For our morning children the session takes place from 8.45am until 9.30am and for afternoon children from 2.30pm to 3.15pm.
Our Stay and Cook sessions have proved a great success. So far we have enjoyed working with our parents and carers to create some yummy delights including:
Bread Rolls, Mini Pizzas and Gingerbread Men and a Buddy Barbeque!

Polite Notices and Reminders
As part of our Minibeast topic we learned lots of interesting facts about bugs from our Year 5 Buddies who recently met a range of real bugs and are now Bug Experts! We were astonished to find out that scorpions glow under UV light and cockroaches have 2 brains!
Year 5 helped us to prepare the materials for a bug sanctuary. The St Anne's Big Bug Hotel was officially opened on 27th May by Mrs Peaston and we celebrated with a Buddy Barbeque with toasted marshmallows to thank our Year 5 Buddies for all their help. We are pleased to report that our wildflowers have started to grow and the hotel has it's first residents!
