Week beginning 20.9.21

A happy and settled week!

It has been so wonderful to see how happy and settled the children are, it’s as if they have all been part of our Cogenhoe family forever which is really wonderful to see. 😊

This week, we have have been sharing the story of ‘Little Red riding hood’ and the children have throughly enjoyed this traditional tale. We have made a story map with pictures to re-tell it and practiced cutting out pictures of the story to demonstrate our scissor control. Amazing work everyone! In number time, we have been counting to 5 and then to 10 and learning to say one number for each object that we counted. For phonics time, we have been learning to distinguish musical sounds and finding the correct instrument from a selection to determine what the hidden sound was. We all loved this game and most of us could find the correct musical instrument each time.

We have continued to have some lovely sunny weather and this has enabled us to continue playing outside as well as inside. We had some new basketballs and loved trying hard to get them into the hoop, really good effort from everyone!

We have all enjoyed making new friends and working together to tidy up and share the resources. Well done everyone for working hard and learning all the new rules and routines. You have once again all been superstars! We look forward to another week of learning from Monday. Have a good weekend everyone!

Week beginning 13.9.21

What a busy week it has been!

The children have been so very happy and settled and enjoying exploring their new environment. We have enjoyed sharing our focus story of ‘The Gingerbread Man’ and some of us then decorated a gingerbread man biscuit which was lots of fun! We  have also made a story map  and we all worked hard to remember the story sequence. Very well done!

We have started to join together for our number time and phonics time. We have been learning about colour sorting and introduced phonics bunny. We learnt about clapping sounds and making loud, quiet, slow and fast clapping sounds. We have also been singing lots of nursery rhymes every day.

Well done everyone for a really super week. You have all been Superstars!

Week beginning: 6.9.21

A warm welcome to all our new children and their families. It has been a great start with all the children settling so well and being very happy. Our returning children have also been very happy and settled and have enjoyed helping our new friends to feel welcome, showing them around and helping them find out and explore their new environment.


We have enjoyed playing inside and outside and enjoyed taking part in listening to stories and singing lots of nursery rhymes. We have also been taking turns in a range of games and learning about animal names and objects.We have been painting, playing wit the sand and water and climbing and balancing.  We have enjoyed sharing snack together and have had lunch in the hall with all the older children.

Well done everyone for an amazing first week. You have all made Miss Scott and I very proud!

Keep up the good work everyone!
