Sports Day

Hello Nursery,

Can I just say a huge well done to all the nursery children who ran their races today. They have all been practicing really hard over the past week and they were so excited and proud to show you how well they can do, I think you can agree they were all amazing, not only in their races, but sitting patiently, getting ready for their next race in the waiting square and cheering on all their friends, you should all be so proud of them, I know I am.

Here are a few pictures from this morning.

 

Weekly Update

Hello Nursery,

This week the children have been enjoying our new topic of the term, ‘Wild Things (Jungle) and Rainforests’

We have centred this weeks planning around our story of the week ‘Where The Wild Things Are’, the children have been busy talking all about their feelings.

In literacy they have drawn their own feely monster and wrote key words about them. They have recreated the story in the water tray using props from around the nursery, they have made their own wild thing paper plate mask using materials of their choice and in science they have had to learn and remember simple coding to direct our class robot around the floor to different wild things masks.

In wild thing themed Maths the children have enjoyed a magical memory game using key objects out of the story, they had to remember the covered objects on the tray and shout out which ones the magical wand had made disappear. they have also been size ordering the monsters, looking at monster capacity and repeated patterns using the coloured bears.

In PE this week the children have be busy practising their races ready for sports day and they also enjoyed Diddi-Dance with Svenja continuing to learn more salsa moves.

Please enjoy some pictures from this week.

Many Thanks,

Decades Week, 1950’S

Welcome Back Nursery,

This week back has been our decades week, Nursery has been looking at the 1950’s. The children have really enjoyed this week, they have been lucky enough to have Reverent Rich into school to rein-enact the Queens coronation that was originally performed in 1952, They have looked at food that was popular in the 1950’s from spam to evaporated milk, Yummy! They have interpreted the collage art that was popular back in the this era by making a Queen themed picture, and in the tea party today they danced to the music that was popular back in the 1950’s and they all loved Elvis Presley.

In literacy our story of the week was Paddington at the Palace, which was very popular as many of the children had actually watched Paddington bear in the palace on the television at the weekend.

In Maths the children enjoyed Jubilee themed maths activities, and in phonics the children were recapping all the sounds learnt so far and looking at the correct formation of  m, a, s, d, t while reciting the rhymes in their writing.

Next week we will move onto our new exciting topic of the term, ‘Wild things’ so lots of monster themed activities to come. Can I please ask everyone to come with trainers next week as we will be doing some sports day practice throughout the week.

Please enjoy some pictures from this week,

Many Thanks,

Weekly update

Hello Nursery

Well what a lovely last week before we have our half term break.

This week we have been looking at our focus story of the week ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ and comparing the story to our class room caterpillars which have now attached to the lid of the cup and become chrysalides.

The children have loved listening to and acting out the story, they have made a Hungry Caterpillar of their own using their handprints, they really enjoyed feeding the hungry caterpillar using their gross motor skills trying to get the food into the caterpillars mouth, they have also trusted their senses in a game of GUESS WHATS IN THE BOX? where the children had to focus on their sense of touch to work out what food from the story was in the box. Finally they all had a super last day with the jubilee celebrations organised by the parent fundraising group.

In PE this week the children listened really well to Harry and his team and they also enjoyed their last country dancing session in Diddi-dance as next term they will be learning salsa!

In Maths this week the children have been fingerprint caterpillar counting, sorting objects and creating symmetrical butterflies.

In phonics this week we have been looking at the sound ‘x’ and introducing some special friend sounds ‘sh’ and ‘ch’ while also having ago at blending some simple words in Fred talk like, m-a-d, s-i-t, c-a-t and s-a-d. Amazing work everyone!

Please enjoy some pictures from this week and enjoy your half term break!

Many Thanks,

Helicopter visit

Hello Nursery,

Well what a welcome back to another working week. A super visit from RAF Shawbury!

The Nursery children absolutely loved the Helicopter landing in the school field today and we were the first class to sit in it

You should be very proud of your children they asked super questions and some children even knew what the blades were called without even being told, which was amazing as I thought they were called propellers! WOOPS silly me.

Please enjoy a few pictures, I’m sorry there isn’t more but we were too busy being helicopter investigators.

Many Thanks,

Weekly update

Hello Nursery,

This week the children have all enjoyed our muddy puddle morning out in the garden, playing in the mud kitchen and mini beast hunting. They learnt all about the life cycle of tadpoles and created a frog pond in the water tray.

In science this week our investigation was Ice! the children had to work out different methods of releasing the bugs that were trapped in the ice blocks, we focused on words like solid/liquid, cold/slippery, melting/wet, crystals/water, We looked at ways to melt the ice using different methods, the children each suggested an idea these were: different tools, heat from our hands, warm water and salt. In turn the children tried each method and they all came to the same conclusion at the end that warm water worked the best closely followed by the tools, salt was the slowest to work.

In literacy our story of the week was ‘Spinderella’ and in art we looked at the artist ‘Matisse’ and his early work ‘snail art’ they all then had a go at recreating the picture for our class display.

Please also enjoy some pictures of our nursery caterpillars, the children have been observing them over the last two weeks and they have grown considerably, we will keep you updated on their progress, very exciting!

Please enjoy some pictures from the week,

Many thanks,
