What a fantastic end to a very busy term. The week began with a visit from Louby Lou, and we all loved her show, we laughed, sang and danced.
We had a fabulous party in Nursery, we played pass the parcel and musical statues and then had some party food. There was a special visitor in the afternoon, Father Christmas came!
We have all had an amazing week, we wish you all a restful holiday. But thank you all for the seasonal wishes and gifts that we have all received in Nursery.
See you in the new year.
Seasonal greetings from all the Nursery Team.
What a busy and fun week. We were practising our 'Cloud' song for the Nativity and also helping to make our cloud headbands.
We all really enjoyed taking part and joining in with our very best singing voices.
We also enjoyed watching the Year 1 and 2 Nativity, feeling very festive in our Christmas jumpers.
The Eagley Elves workshop has arrived in Nursery this week. Our Nursery Elves have been busy dressing up, wrapping presents, writing labels and of course posting and delivering them.
We have continued making decorations and preparations for our Christmas Nativity.
We have had lots of fun outside in the mud wet, the sandpit was great fun.
What a busy week!
The lovely decorations that we made last Friday have been used to decorate the hall and our Nursery classroom.
We are still busy finishing off our Robins for our hall display.
Please take a look at our lovely owl display, some of our parents do not get to see our displays because of work commitments. The children have cut and decorated their own owls, we think they have done a fantastic job. You can help your child at home to develop this skill by letting them practise cutting, and supporting them in having the correct grip.
This week in Nursery we have continued with our Owl theme, we have listened to more owl stories, and have had circle time activities around the Owl Babies theme.
We have counted birds, counted out taps using the tap sticks, and enjoyed singing number rhymes.
Sadly Lancashire Owls cancelled on Thursday, we will reschedule and let you know when the new date will be,
It was wonderful on Friday to see so many parents and grandparents in Nursery making decorations with their children, thank you all for coming.
This week in Nursery, we have been reading different Owl stories, in preparation for our visit from Lancashire Owls next week. We have been cutting out owls ready for our new classroom display. We have solved number problems by sharing out worms between different owls. We were fantastic, we could see how to share them out so that it was fair and all the owls had the same amount of worms.
We have been making nests and counting eggs to put in the nests.
We have used big gross motor movements when we have painted, and when we chalked shapes on the ground outside. We then had to use the brushes to rub hard to make the shapes disappear.
Thank you so much for all the 'Wow' moments that you have sent in, our magic moments board is now looking busy and brilliant.
Week beginning 7th November
We have had another busy week in Nursery, we have been making our own animal paper plate faces. we used our cutting and sticking skills to create these.
We have been on a number hunt outside and we found lots of numbers in our outdoor classroom. Maybe you and your child could look for numbers in and around your home environment?
We used our senses when using the chocolate play-doh, and also when we were mark making in the shaving foam. Elsie thought it made her hands soft and Imogen said it was 'Nice and soft.'
The animal masks in the role play were great fun, we could tell stories and pretend to be animals.
Week beginning 31st October
What a busy week we have had!
After a lovely half term break, we came back to find our role play has been changed to a Vets. We have been reading stories about animals, we have cared for our animals in the Vets. On the collage table we have been able to create our own leaf animals. There have been some amazing pictures.
We have a farm in the small world, and have been playing memory games with the animals. Some farm animals were put on a tray, we got to name them and count them, then we closed our eyes and an animal was removed. We had to work out which animal had been taken away. Some of us were really good at this game. Maybe you could play this game at home with different objects.
Outside Mrs Hull has been very busy getting our outdoor classroom ready for some great playing and exploring. We now have a brilliant 'mud kitchen,' and we can mix and pour and experiment with different things. This week we have had pumpkins and water in our kitchen. We also have balance scales, a pulley system, new soft flooring, and an outdoor role play hut. We have been having great fun.
