Who is that trip trapping over my bride!

Published on Friday 2 October 2020 by Miss Dickinson.

This week we have been focusing on the story of 'The 3 Billy Goats Gruff'. We have been retelling the story using phrases we have learnt such as 'Who is that trip trapping over my bridge' and 'don't eat me'. The children have also been tapping out some syllables of words in the story as well as their own names which they were very good at!

We have also been building our own bridges for the billy goats to get across the river. While doing this the children came up with alternative ways for them to get across the river such as a boat or even a trampoline to jump across to the other side- what great imaginations they have!

Our little rays of sunshine this week are Austin Egglestone for his amazing recall of the Three Billy Goats Gruff. He used the puppets to help him and used familiar phrases from the story such as trip, trap and clip, clop. Hollie Davies has also been chosen for settling so well in nursery and coming into nursery with no tears. She also tried very hard with writing her own name. Eva Langham for always willing to give anything a go and also for doing an amazing job when writing her name. Olivia Bell for being a fantastic role model to her friends. She always puts her hand up to try and answer questions at group time and has impressed Miss Gill at focus learning time. She has also created some fantastic friendship groups with other children in Nursery and finally Toby Wallace for trying really hard to share with his friends. He is beginning to seek out adults for support when he needs it and is joining in really well at group time. He particularly enjoyed using the puppets to retell our story of the week. Well done everyone, what superstars!

Can I also remind parents about signing up for a telephone appointment with your child's key worker to find out how they have settled and how they are progressing in Nursery. You can either ring the Nursery office or email nursery@crookprimaryschool.org.uk for an appointment.
