Welcome to Monkey Puzzle Class!
There are 4 members of staff who work with the children of Monkey Puzzle Class:

We have 10 fabulous children who range from year 1-year 4. The children in our class are: Arron, Natan, Callum, Zack, Joshua, Riley, William, Mia, Dominik and Krishna.
This Term we have been looking at the topics- All about me and Winter Wonderland. We have explored our families, likes and dislikes, the 5 senses, seasonal changes and Christmas!
We regularly enjoy going on welly walks down to the forest school, where we like to take part in different practical activities outdoors! We like to discover different mini-beasts, play outdoor games and create our own nature circuits using tree stumps, planks of wood and branches.

In Monkey Puzzle Class we also try to develop our sensory curriculum within our EYFS framework. We have recently been on a sensory walk with the story ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’. This included the children walking barefoot through a number of trays filled with materials that have different textures and smells. The children had great fun and couldn’t wait to have a second turn!

We bake/cook once a week during our topic lessons and the children have great fun feeling, weighing, preparing and tasting the ingredients. Some of the things we have made include: cheese straws, mince pies, refrigerator cake, scones, hedgehog bread and gingerbread.
