We have been very busy making star biscuits and decorating pine cones for our stall in the school Christmas Fayre on Thursday 29th November. Father Christmas also popped along to visit us and brought us chocolate bars! Our school Christmas Fayre was a great success and we would like to thank all of you who came and supported the event!

Monday 19th November - Friday 23rd November
Techniquest came to school this week and we had a show called 'Saving Seasons.' We learned all about the different seasons and how our environment changes. After this we went on a nature walk to look for all the lovely things that had fallen from the trees. We used these things to make some super nature collages. We have kept the items we found to do some leaf printing next week.
Remember it’s our Christmas Fayre next week, Thursday 29th November, so we will look forward to seeing you there!

Monday 12th November - Friday 16th November
Children in Need was our focus for this week. We made Pudsey masks and had to guess who was hiding underneath them! We also made Pudsey models in the playdough and had yellow water to play with. On Children in Need day we all came to school with wacky hair, wigs and hats even the teachers! We raised lots of money to help other children.

Monday 5th November - Friday 9th November

This week we had our Monster’s Tea Party so we were busy preparing for that. We made blood sandwiches (jam sandwiches) and worm cakes (chocolate crispy cakes with red laces). We had black playdough and lots of spooky playdough mats to look at and played Monster’s Bingo.

Monday 22nd October - Friday 26th October
This week we have been learning ‘If you’re happy and you know it’ and ‘Mr Hapus ydw i’. We have been talking about what makes us happy and what makes us sad. We have also been concentrating on colour activities. We have been working with the colour bears and linking elephants to help us learn our colours.

Monday 15th October - Friday 19th October 

‘Hickory Dickory Dock’ was the focus for this week. We have been learning the rhyme and teaching our toy mouse the rhyme too. The children played with the plastic sand timers and were challenged to see how many times they could do different activities in one minute. They also enjoyed making mouse models in the playdough. 

Monday 8th October - Friday 12th October
Our song and rhyme this week was ‘Incey Wincey Spider’. We made spiders which had googly eyes and eight legs and looked outside to see if we could find any spiders.

Monday 1st October - Friday 5th October
This week we have been singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star but Mrs Rowles and Mrs Stebbings kept getting the words wrong and the children had to help them with their mistakes. We also made our own little stars using lots of different collage materials and had yellow playdough and star shaped cutters. 

Monday 24th September - Friday 28th September
The children have been exploring the areas of the Early Years Unit this week and seeing what activities are available for them. They have also been getting to the know the teachers and teaching assistants. We are also lucky to have some students working with us on different days of the week – these are Chelsea, Chloe, Kayleigh and Rachel. We have been learning the parts of the body and singing ‘Head Shoulders Knees and Toes’ in English!

Monday 17th September - Friday 21st September
Over the last two weeks, we have been welcoming the new children into nursery. We have been helping them to settle into their new surroundings and learn the routines. We are very pleased with how quickly the children are settling in and enjoying nursery life.   
Welcome Back!
Welcome back to the new school year. We are very excited as during the summer holidays there were lots of changes to Pencaerau. Our new Early Years Unit was finished and we had lots of new play equipment fitted. We hope the children are going to enjoy our newly refurbished school.
