This week in Tiny Toes . . .

November 17th, 2017

We had a fantastic turnout from parents to our World Nursery Rhyme Week Singalong.  It was the first time we’d taken part in the event and the children really enjoyed all the activities they took part in over the week.  We sang some familiar rhymes and learnt some new ones. Here are just a few photographs from the week and from our final singalong on Friday.

Autumn Stay and Play

November 10th, 2017

This year our Stay and Play morning was themed around Bonfire Night and Autumn. Children and parents made hedgehogs with leaves and spiders with long black legs and goggly eyes!

Meanwhile the Reception children practised their numbers to make fire hats and tore colourful strips of paper to make beautiful bonfire pictures.

Everybody enjoyed sharing their Special Books with their family.

Thank you to all those parents and family members who joined in.
