Nursery have been learning the story of The Gingerbread Man. We decided to bake some gingerbread men of our own.
Do you know what an Ostler is? How about a French cocked-hat or a love-knot?
5C had a chance to apply the computer research skills they learnt earlier in the year today, as they sought to unpick the meaning of some of the vocabulary from Alfred Noyes’ The Highwayman for our English unit.
After finding unfamiliar words in the poem, we used online dictionaries and search engines to find pictures and definitions which we then put into our own picture dictionaries.
Can you find the meaning of the following words?

This morning, we had a sunny walk over to the Nursery. We took our English books with us so we could tell our Nursery friends the stories that we had written last week. It was very exciting.
Nursery really enjoyed our stories. Also, it was great making new friends!
After our brilliant storytelling, Nursery invited us to play with them. We loved playing with our new friends. Thank you sharing your toys with us!
Thank you Nursery!
Leave a message for your new friends on this blog! What did you like best about our morning?
Well done for all of the wonderful costumes today!
What a fun day! Remember to use your book token.
Ten Little Bookworms is a good choice for nursery aged children.
