Starting School in September 2020
From 4 November you will be able to apply for a primary school place if your child is due to start school in September 2020. Please visit the website below for further information.
This week we have been reading the story The 3 Little Pigs. The children have enjoyed using the large foam bricks and large cardboard boxes to build different houses. The children have also built cars, planes and trains. We have encouraged the children to draw a plan on the design plan sheets of what they wanted to build. After the children have built it we have asked them to draw another picture of the final building.
The children have enjoyed building houses from the junk modelling where they were finding the boxes, sticking them together, cutting paper to stick on them and decorating them. The children have been drawing on the interactive white board different sized houses and talking about what they are made of.
The children had their Nursery photos taken on Monday in the school hall. The children behaved beautifully walking over to the hall and sat lovely waiting for their turn to have their photo taken.
The children have had great fun playing in the mud kitchen, making pies and cakes and getting very very very wet and muddy!!!!!!!!
This week we have been reading the story Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. The children have enjoyed joining in with the story and saying the lines; “who’s been eating my porridge?”, “that’s too hard” and “that’s too soft”. The children then worked with a teacher to draw story maps. The children have retold the story of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears and drawn the characters from the story. The children have made amazing story maps which are displayed in the Nursery. We have been also been looking at measurement and encouraged the following vocabulary; big, large, massive, huge, small, tiny, mini.
The children have enjoyed participating in cooking with Miss Percy. The children have made cheese straws. They have talked about all the different ingredients and how we need to mix and cook them.
Could we please ask that All of your children’s belongings are named clearly. This includes water bottles, coats, jumpers, shoes, bags. Also could we ask that All children have spare clothes in their bag as we still go outside no matter what the weather is. We do put wetsuits on the children but sometimes they still get wet and muddy.
This week we have been reading the story The Gingerbread Man. This has led to the children making Gingerbread men out of play dough and decorating them. They also made some stained glass gingerbread men out of plates and tissue paper and healthy eating paintings using potatoes.
The children have enjoyed playing in the mud kitchen and splashing in the puddles with all the rain we have had. The children enjoyed playing on the stage and playing the musical instruments and singing. The teachers have really enjoyed the shows the children have performed in.
The children have enjoyed cooking with Miss Percy and making oat, raisin and banana cookies.
We would like to thank all the Grandparents for joining us on Grandparents Day. We hope you all enjoyed your time with us, the children enjoyed showing their Grandparents around the Nursery.
