Christmas  Party!

Autumn 2

What a busy few weeks we have had in Nursery.

New friends have joined us, we have created a super digging area  and added some lovely clocks to the outside environment to enhance our mathematical learning.

Little Buttons came to visit us as start of their transition into full time Nursery.

When the weather changed we took the opportunity to investigate the snow and ice take a look.

Class of 21/22 Settling in nicely 

What a busy couple of weeks, exploring all the new activity stations and resources in Nursery. We have welcomed back some of our older children, who have stayed with us and lots of children                                                               who are new to nursery.

We have been making friends, listening to and reading stories, collecting leaves and blowing them, catching bubbles, drawing self portraits, creating a snack bar and learning how to use a zebra crossing safely. We have also had a feline visitor who  decided to join us in our play.    Take a look below.

Autumn 1  Week 2

Autumn 1    Week 3

Autumn 1 weeks 4 - 7

What a busy few weeks the children have had.

The children found two lost bears and kindly offered to take turns to take them home each night for a sleep over. We made our own jam sandwiches for a teddy bears picnic and worked on our sharing and mathematical skills, cutting food in half to share with our friends. We  experimented making paper aeroplanes, investigating how we could make them fly as far as possible. 

The children suggested we needed a shop to buy food, to enhance our role play area, so we created one, giving  the children first hand experiences  learning about money and different kinds of foods.

We learned how to take our shoes and socks on and off and the children came up with the idea of walking on lots of different textures to see how they felt. 

Take a look below, at  the too numerous adventures we have had this term.

Parents in Partnership

Thank you to all our wonderful parents, carers and children, for creating such colourful family collages to celebrate what makes us all special.

Alvie Joe is really enjoying the old lady who swallowed a fly topic this week! Hes been working really hard with his letter formations and being able to identify letters and numbers by looking at them now not just saying them. Hes watching the song every day and can now sing most of the words instead of mumbling through. He loves doing the creative activities and i find this is when i can keep him engaged the most.

Oliver has just been looking at all the pictures that have been uploaded and it really brought a smile to his face to see all his friends

Lola Potter(a few years ago)

We talked about how Harry felt sad after leaving his bucket on the train.

I made a happy face and a sad face so I could talk about what I liked and disliked about the book.

Alvie Joe Sutton(a few years ago)

Today Alvie Joe really enjoyed singing Old McDonald, we did all the farm animals and then we used his animal puppets to sing about some zoo animals too, we asked Alexa to tell us some of the noises they made so we could copy. We had lots of fun.

Spring 2 Week 1

This week at home and in class we have been reading the traditional tale 'The Three Little Pigs' to enhance our learning we have made pig masks, practising our cutting skills. Designed our own houses, labelling each part with the sounds we could hear in words and constructed dwellings to stop the Big Bad Wolf getting to us. In mathematics we have been creative with Numicon counting, making patterns and linking our number recognition with the different shaped pieces on sight. 

Spring 1 week 6 

We have been learning all about the Fire Service and how to make calls to the operator at the emergency call center. We now know, which numbers to dial and what information we need to give, so help can come as quickly as possible. Do you know what number you need to dial in an emergency? We have made mobile phones, fire engines, fire officer badges, numbered finger puppets and outside we used chalk to draw ladder's, numbering the rungs.

It is also Chinese New Year this week and to welcome in the year of the Ox we listened to the story of how the years became animals names. We have been saying hello and writing our names in Chinese, it was good fun. Some of us made dragon masks and fans decorated with Chinese patterns, take a look below.  What a busy week!!!!

This week has been a very active and busy one in school and at home on our Zoom lessons. The children have been thinking about how we can keep our body's and minds healthy. We have been exercising everyday and have quietly been using mindfulness music to relax and think about what makes us feel good. Along side all this mind and body health we have been learning about , healthy food creating our own breakfasts and lunches, filling in our tooth brushing charts, alliteration and different ways to express and count numbers. Take a look below.

We learnt about how the police can stop people from driving to fast and how the Lollipop person can keep us safe. We have been looking at the shapes we can see in our environment when we are out and about. We have used some of these shapes to create our own art work at home and in school.Keep your eyes peeled for the stick man Matthew found on his walk.
