Writing with our feet!

In Nursery we continue to develop our gross motor skills and core strength ready for us to be story writers when we move to Reception.

Today we focussed on core strength by challenging the children to write with a pen between their toes! It got even more challenging when they had a pen in each foot.

Nursery what was the best bit about writing with your feet?

Pirates Love Underpants! Nursery gear up for World Book Day.

This half term, Nursery’s learning has been inspired by Pirates Love Underpants. Today we went into the hall and retold the story.

  1. We packed our cases and boarded the boat
  2. Pulled up the anchor and rigged the sail
  3. Rowed our boat to shore
  4. Balanced across three pants ridge (beware of the crocodiles!)
  5. Tip toed across the swamp
  6. Crawled through the dark cave

Then we found the golden underpants and danced back to the boat.
