This week has marked a new way of learning for pupils at St Dunstan’s College following the move to remote teaching.

Despite being the youngest pupils at St Dunstan’s, our Nursery and Reception children have embraced the new virtual teaching. 

In Nursery, the children have been learning about shapes and patterns, while also practising their sounds. Taking inspiration from the College’s new building developments, they have also continued with their construction sites topic and have created their own safety signs. 

Meanwhile, our Reception pupils have been enjoying their topic on space and have been busy training to be astronauts. As part of their training, they have been retelling Jill Murphy’s famous book ‘Whatever Next!’ which follows the story of Baby Bear who finds a rocket and heads to space for a picnic on the moon.

During the week, the pupils have also been learning about measurements by making play dough and potions.

Speaking about the week, Head of EYFS Ms Kirsty Leane said: ‘It has been really lovely seeing all the pupils continue with their St Dunstan’s education at home through our virtual teaching. They have all shown real confidence and creativity in their response to the new remote learning.

‘I also want to say thank you to all of the parents and carers who have supported their children this week.’

Earlier this week, the pupils were also treated to a special story time reading of ‘Never ask a dinosaur to dinner’ by the Headmaster, Mr Hewlett.
