National Nursery Rhyme Week

We had a great week celebrating,  'National Poetry Week' . Each day we are learnt Nursery Rhyme and so now we know: The Wheels on the Bus, 5 Little Speckled Frogs, Hickory Dickory Dock, Old Macdonald Had a Farm and Miss Polly Had a Dolly. 

Have a look at the wonderful learning we have been doing in Wrens Class

There have been lots of exciting things going on in Wrens this half term. We have been exploring the story, 'One Snowy Night', reading and following Percy's recipe for his favourite ginger biscuits, building a hut for all of the animals who had nowhere to sleep, creating winter masterpieces and learning about the seasons Autumn and Winter.
