Welcome back to the new Autumn term. Our children are settling in well to the new term and routines at Little Doves, they are also adapting well to the full day sessions.
We have been learning about more and less quantities in Maths using porridge oats and water. In the creative area, we have had lots of fun glueing and sticking in the garden and on the mark making table some of the children have been doing a wide variety of creations from drawing pictures of their Mummies to big rockets and dinosaurs.
The book we are focussing on is 'Goldilocks an the Three Bears.' Some of the children are able to repeat certain phrases from the story and using language of size while reading the story and in other areas like the construction area.
