Week beginning 19th October
The Nursery team would like to thank all our parents for your support in settling the children into Nursery. Your children are amazing and we are privileged to be teaching them.
This week we have enjoyed using some potatoes from our school grounds to make some wonderful potato print pictures. We have had lots of fun making funny faces with Mr Potato Head. We have enjoyed experiencing autumn this week by collecting leaves and making our own 'leaf rain'. On Wednesday many children took part in the competition to raise funds for FaFoE by decorating a pumpkin. Well done to all children who took part. You can see your marvelous creations in this weeks gallery.
When we return to school after the half term break we will be learning about Autumn. During the holidays perhaps you could look for signs of autumn in your garden or in the park. Maybe you could collect some signs of Autumn and bring them to Nursery after the half term break.
Have a wonderful half term break and we will look forward to seeing you all on 2nd November.
Week beginning 12th October
This week we have been thinking about what makes us special. Thank you to all the parents who have sent in photographs of your child. The children have enjoyed talking about them and sharing what makes them unique and special. We have some very talented swimmers, gymnasts, footballers, dancers and chefs! It has been lovely for the children to share photographs of and talk about their families. If you haven't already sent photographs of your child you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. As part of our activities this week we have been making marks in cornflour, stiring and pouring tea in our water play, painting our self portraits and playing with the Happy Land characters. We have also pretended to be different animals as part of our physical development as we explored the space in the hall. Outdoors we have enjoyed playing on the climbing frame and the trim trail and we enjoyed working together as a team to dig up the potatoes in our vegetable plot. We also found a ladybird. We think she came to visit us because she heard that we are called Ladybird class!
We hope that you enjoy looking at some of our photographs from this week.
Have a lovely weekend.
Week beginning 5th October
Well, what a fun week! This week we have enjoyed experiencing lots of different weather. We have been very busy outdoors, digging in the mud pit and pouring water down guttering that we have fixed together. We have also enjoyed splashing in the muddy puddles and have laughed lots with our friends. We have been exploring the features on our faces and thinking about the use of our eyes, ears, nose and mouth. We have thought about keeping clean and we have bathed the babies in our water tray. In the playdough we have explored different patterns and ways of making patterns.
Next week we will be talking about what makes us special. At home please talk to your children about the things they enjoy doing and the things that make them unique.
Have a lovely weekend.
Week beginning 28th September
We are settling well in to Nursery and we are all making new friends.
This week we have had a lovely week exploring the book "Here We Are". We have talked about our world and how we need to take care of our world. We have thought about the people and animals that live in our world and discussed who are the people in our world who care for us and can help us.
As part of our outdoor learning we have been problem solving by exploring different ways of collecting apples from the trees. Some children decided to make a ladder whilst other children thought it would be a good idea to knock them down to the ground using long sticks. It was lovely to see such super ideas. Well done everyone!
We hope you have a lovely weekend and we can't wait to have more fun next week.
Week beginning 21st September
This week we have had a lovely time as we have welcomed more new friends in to Nursery. We have been learning each others names and exploring our learning environment. We have had a fun time and we are looking forward to more exciting learning next week.
Week beginning 14th September
We have had a fun week in Nursery while we have been settling in and meeting our new friends and our teachers. We have had a lovely time exploring the outdoors and we picked apples from our school apple tree. We decided to use the apples to make an apple crumble. It was delicious!
We are looking forward to next week when we will have met more of our new friends.
