Bridgemary Library Visit

World Nursery Rhyme Week

Last week was ‘World Nursery Rhyme Week’ and to really make the most of it the children in Seahorse and Starfish class visited Bridgemary Library to have a ‘rhyme time’ session. This included singing some of our favourite nursery rhymes and listening to a rhyming story with Carol, a library volunteer.


The children we very sensible when walking to and from the library and members of the public had commented on how well behaved the children were.

Some of the children’s favourite nursery rhymes throughout the week were:  Lavenders blue, wind the bobbin up and sing a rainbow. They enjoyed learning the makaton actions to go with this.

Our First Week

The reception children have had a fantastic first week in their new classes. They have been very busy exploring the learning environment both indoors and out. This week they have started to learn the different phonic sounds, practising reading and recognising numbers to 10 and enjoying story time in key worker groups.
