Our First Week at Nursery
What a busy time!
The Aliens have landed...
and they are stealing our underpants!
We had a fabulous time making our Christingles and learning about the significance of each item.
The nursery children were able to remember lots of facts and information - well done!
Our first snow fall
Nursery and Reception children and staff had an amazing morning exploring and learning in the snow.
For some of the children it was their first experience. It was fresh, cold and clear – just what we ordered!
Our Focus story is 'Funny Bones', by Janet & Allan Ahlberg.
We will be learning:
Over the rainbow
Tasting the rainbow
Discovering and investigating colours
Sorting and changing colours
Stories: Brown Bear; Elmer
In Nursery and Reception: We learned the stories by heart and went hunting for the characters. We mixed colours in the water and paint, as well as, making colourful biscuits. We ate coloured flavours on toast and even tried new foods – blindfolded! The Reception children also tasted healthy and colourful fruits such as pomegranate and blueberries. We all brought in our favourite coloured toys and had a fabulous ‘Elmer Day’, where everyone dressed in their best colourful clothes.
Teddy Bear Stories
Our Teddies have come to school!
We have made 'lost' labels for them and created observational pictures too.
The children are making bear crafts using different skills: cutting and sticking, finger painting, bubble prints and more.
We are learning teddy stories by heart: 'Peace at Last', 'Going on a Bear Hunt'.
Most importantly - we all went on a Bear Hunt through the swishy grass, the mud and the river...
The children had a fabulous time making sandwiches for our Teddy Bears' Picnic - we all had a wonderful time eating and hunting for our bears!
We made fish and chips in the play dough. As well as, red, white and blue streamers and flags.
Learned to recognise and name famous people and structures from around Britain.
We also had a fabulous session 'Cleaning for the Queen'.
With rubber gloves, sponges and lots of sweeping brushes at the ready - we had a fantastic time cleaning and sweeping our school garden.
The best part was painting our Portraits in the style of the Queen and we made lots of money selling them to our parents.
Thank you for your support.
