Christmas Tree maths

Nursery children have painted Christmas trees and then decorated them with stars, baubles and pompoms. They counted the baubles and answered questions like, “How many red baubles do you have on your tree?” and “How many would there be if you had one more?”


In Early Years we have been reading a book called “Rotten Island.” In this book there are lots of different monsters.

Nursery children have all thought about their own monster; answering questions like “How many legs will it have?” “What colour will it be?” Then they painted their monsters.


The children have been looking for numerals in the environment. We found some outside and some inside the classroom.

Some children then had a go at ordering their numerals. These children really impressed me!

World Book Day

Nursery children thoroughly enjoyed World Book Day. They all came to school dressed up as a character from a book by our class author, Eric Carle. Our favourite stories by Eric Carle are “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and “The Bad-Tempered Ladybird”. They have been printing their own pictures of ladybirds.
