LIVE Dough Disco Day 2 with a Squiggle

Shonette is full of energy and enthusiasm first thing in the morning to get children to practice early writing skills. She is live at 9.30 am every day. You will need a small amount of playdough to fit in your child's hand. For Day 2 you will also need a pair of socks or two tea towels.

If you don't have any ready made dough at home you can make some, it's really easy:

1 cup of plain flour

1/2 cup of salt 

1/2 cup of hot water

1/2 cup of cold water

1 tbsp of veg oil

You can also add food colouring or a squirt of children's poster paint for colour.

Stir it up and put it in the microwave for a few minutes at a time, stiring each time you check it.

Knead it and once it's cooled, you have some dough!

Celebrations and Autumn

This half term we will be learning about autumn, woodland animals, Bonfire Night and the Christmas Story. We have also planned a very exciting trip to White Post Farm to see the animals, take part in a Nativity and of course see Santa! 

On Tuesday 10th December, Morning and Afternoon Nursery will be performing a Nativity with Foundation 2 children. We hope you can come and watch your child perform as they have been practising hard.  



Children love to go outside in all weather.  Please make sure your child has:

* a warm coat

* hat, gloves, scarf

* wellies (they all love to jump in muddy puddles)

 Welcome back from the summer holidays! We have lots of exciting things planned this year   and the children have been very busy already. A special welcome to the children who have   joined St. Peter's this year.


Please make sure you bring a water bottle to school each day and remember to name all clothing, jumpers and cardigans seem to grow legs and walk, they are much easier to find with a name inside them.


Adults in Foundation are Mrs Widdowson, Mrs Marland, Mrs Taylor, Miss Thompson, Miss Harrison and Mrs Lawrence. 


Our topic this half term is All About Me and Under the Sea. We have been reading Hooray for Fish by Lucy cousins and doing lots of sea creature crafts.
