The children have been writing letters to fairytale characters from our story The Jolly Postman. They have even had some replies!

Our outside area

There was some fantastic teamwork, perseverence and creative thinking this week when trying to build the tallest tower they could. The tower kept falling down and they kept rebuilding it again and again, changing their ideas to support it better. Well done!


We have been learning about woodworking this week and how to keep safe when using tools. The children have made some amazing creations and are very proud of their achievements!

The Ducklings have really enjoyed their Wednesday Welly Walks this term and have found all sorts of things in our outside area and playground. They have been looking closely with their eyes at colours, patterns, similarities and differences.

The Ducklings have been pirates this week! They have been making their own treasure maps, eye patches and telescopes. They have been hiding and digging for treasure and sailing off on great adventures!

Aliens Love Underpants

The Ducklings found some mysterious items around our classroom this week. Some aliens had crash landed in order to steal some underpants! The children made them new spaceships so they could go home safely.

The children are settling in very well and are getting used to everything that the Pond has to offer. We are very proud of all our Ducklings for a super first week of full time!

What a super start the children have made on their first few days in the Pond! I love that they are all so happy and bringing a great big smile to School each day. It is great to see so many children independently finding their peg and hanging their own things up already!

This term we are really focusing on building friendships with each other and ensuring the children know the rules and routines within the classroom and around the School.

The children are really enjoying exploring all the new toys and games we have here. They are also loving using the outside space and, as the grass is slowly becoming very wet and muddy, please could you bring in a pair of wellies for your child to leave in school.

If you have any questions or concerns please come and speak to me.
