Nursery – 29.09.2023

We have had a busy week in nursery and we have tried lots of things for the first time….

On Monday afternoon we did our first RHE lesson where we talked about God and how he created our wonderful world. We learnt that on Day 1 of Creation God said ‘Let there be light’ and there was. The children each had a piece of card to represent the dark and then stuck on yellow pieces to represent the light.

We had a go at ‘Dough Disco’ this week, the children have each got their own pot of playdough and they copy the movements on the screen, a great way to get those fingers moving ready for writing. The children are having a go at opening the pot themselves and getting the dough out.

We also did some Yoga for the first time…

In maths this week we have been exploring different colours, we helped monster on the screen to identify the correct colours and then we had a go at sorting some colours in class….

On Friday we went on a colour hunt around the school, we found colour in lots of places both inside and outside and ticked them off on our sheet…

Other photos from this week…

Next week we have Little City visiting us for a morning of fun in the hall.

Thank you again for all the lovely family photos and baby photos, the baby photos are up in the baby clinic role play and I can hear the children talking to their friends about the pictures.

Have a good weekend

Hello Parents/Carers, welcome to the first Nursery blog this year.

What a great start to the term – thank you parents and carers for all your patience and support in helping get the children in. The settling in period is really important and the children are already getting use to the routines and all of the rules that come with being in Nursery. A good routine can really help the children settle in and feel relaxed and happy while here, the nursery routine stays the same the whole year and there is always a visual timetable in the classroom so the children can see what’s happening throughout the day.

The children have started to explore the nursery and use the resources which are available:

Next week the children are going to be bringing home a library book. To begin with the children are going to be borrowing a book from the selection of books we have in the nursery. Our library day will be a Wednesday each week. Please can books be returned each Wednesday so they can choose a new one.

Children need a coat as the weather starts to get colder, please encourage independence by getting the children to have a go at putting it on/taking it off themselves and doing up zips and buttons.

Children need a pair of welly boots we can keep at school – this is for playing with our new water activity as well as jumping/splashing in puddles and playing on the hill that will start to get very muddy.

We need your junk modelling. We would love donations of boxes e.g. cereal boxes/pringles tubes/kitchen towel tubes so the children can use their imagination to create wonderful models.

There will be parent consultations for Nursery in Autumn term – you will be able to book a 10 minute slot on Arbor from 7pm tonight.

Hope you have a lovely weekend.

See you on Monday.

The children have worked so hard this year and I hope that they enjoyed their year in Nursery.

Have a wonderful summer break.

Yesterday for transition morning the Nursery children spent time in reception with their new teacher. They read stories, played games and even made some lovely sparkly crowns.

Nursery have been working really hard on their fine motor skills – in particular pencil control. This week we had a go at drawing on white boards, we had to copy what was happening on the screen step by step. Very tricky! Take a look at how we got on, can you guess what we drew?

Nursery Teddy Bears Picnic will be next Wednesday – 19th July. All children will need to bring in their favourite teddy bear/soft toy. Morning children can bring in a lunch/snack to eat and will be collected from the office at 12pm.

Have a good weekend.

This week we have looked at the story ‘The Rainbow Fish’. The story is about the feeling you get when you share something with someone.

Thank you parents for coming to our Sports Day on Tuesday – the rain wasn’t going to put us off. The children did really well and I know they were thrilled to get a medal and have an ice lolly!

On Tuesday, the new deputy head came down to spend some time with the Nursery children and at the end of the day she read us a story.

Our new Topic in RE is ‘Our World’. We talked about who made the world, the things that were made and nursery were very good at remembering what Reception had told us in their class assembly. We watched a video of God making the world:

The children have also been looking at the ‘Our World’ Area in the classroom:

We have now come to the end of looking at Olivers Vegetables and Oliver’s Fruit Salad – the children keep singing the fruit salad song that Mrs Gallaher taught them. The children created some art work – their own plate of food and talked about what they had chosen with a grown up.

This week the children were delighted to see some new toys in the nursery – these new toys were purchased using the money raised from the Cake sale that happened just before half term.

We have been out on the field this week practising for Sports Day. The children will be doing a variety of sports activities and are excited for you to come and watch us in action.

We have had such a busy week in Nursery – bouncing on a castle, whizzing down a giant slide, a lovely Pentecost Party and at long last the butterflies came out of their cocoons.

On Tuesday the first two butterflies emerged from their cocoons, the children were so excited and there was a lot of chatter about what had happened and on Wednesday we had two more appear. On Thursday morning we went round to the Prayer Garden to release the four that we had, we said a special prayer to keep them safe and then watched as they came out from the net. We left one cocoon in the net and this morning we came to school to find it had emerged! We went back round to the Prayer Garden to let him out.

Thank you for coming to our Pentecost party on Wednesday afternoon. The children made some jam sandwiches in the morning and in the afternoon we waited for our grown ups to arrive. Thank you again for all the food contributions.

Other photos from this week:

The children have spent a lot of time outside this and will continue to do so after half term. Please make sure they have got sun cream on before they come to school, children also need to have a hat.

Have a lovely half term and enjoy the sunshine, see you on Monday 5th June.
