Pumpkin carving

This was our entrance into the pumpkin carving competition. Sadly, we were pipped to the post by Hedgehogs, but I think this deserves the prize our "Monkey's tree of horrors"

Shape 2

Here are some more photos from all our shape work this afternoon!


In maths we have been studying the topic shape. We have been exploring and naming shapes, and trying to find shapes that are similar and different. I have loved working with these bingo dabbers and some of the children have done the most amazing mark making using them. My Star this week is Maleke, as not only did he complete dabbing shapes independently, he then came to the whiteboard and completed overwriting of a circle by himself. Well done all!


This week we have been looking at the nights getting darker and the weather getting colder and learning all about Autumn. We have some beautiful sessions looking at the leaves falling and autumnal colours. The class have been absolutely brilliant in Garden School doing this and I have just a few of my fondest photos below:


I have to do a quick update about this afternoon. As we are studying th topic of "wonderful Me" we started work today on our senses with the first session being "good looking". The class were so immersed with all the various lights/ glasses/ prisms and there were multiple moments of the staff being in hysterics from the joy the children were having. One of my absolute favourite moments was Reagan wanting to be lifted up to see himself with his new glasses. Check out this wonderful slideshow below.


What a wonderful week we have had yet again. We have been busy as always with our core work in literacy and maths, but have been focusing in the afternoons on following instructions and sequencing events. To do this we have been making our own jam and cheese sandwiches. They absolutely loved it. Check out or highlights below!


There isn't a chance we don't miss for learning. Even in soft play we have been working on both our gross motor skills and our engagement with adults and peers. THe Monkey's get so much out of these sessions and their enjoyment is clear for all to see!


What can I say. We love music, the louder the better. We have such fun in the SoundBox

Hands and Feet

I apologise if your child came home with multi coloured feet on Friday, but we had such a super science lesson looking at our body parts, trying to tell the difference between hand and foot prints. One of my personal favourites was working with Reagan and I love this video of how calm he is working in class.


What a lovely first session we have had baking. We made some biscuits and decorated them ourselves. Everyone was so engaged from start to finish!

Getting to know the Monkeys

What a wonderful first week we have had getting to know each other. Everyone has settled really well and I am loving seeing everyone back in school and fresh faced!
