Its the end of Autumn 2 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in nursery…………………….

What a busy, fun filled term full of learning we have had in nursery! We started the term off learning about nocturnal animals and had a visit from the Wise Owl Falconry Rescue centre. During this visit we got to watch a barn owl fly across the hall, eat and even got to hold an owl for a photograph!

We have also learnt about how different winter festivals are celebrated. We have learnt all about bonfire night, Diwali, Halloween, and Christmas. We talked about safety around fireworks, made biscuits and firework pictures. For Diwali, we talked about who and how people celebrate it in the community as well at home and made firework biscuits to take home. For Christmas we made cards, calendars, read lots of Christmas stories and decorated a real Christmas tree!

As well as all these celebrations we also continued to explore all areas of nursery with our friends, learning to share and talk about our feelings. As we did this, we developed our confidence in new social situations and started to think about how others may feel. We also enjoyed playing and learning in our outdoor area climbing on the climbing frame, riding the bikes, collecting autumn leaves, and playing games with each other. We are so excited for next term where we will continue to learn and play with our friends! Remember to ask us all about our learning!

Its week 6 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in nursery…………………….

This week in nursery we have been learning all about Christmas! We have spent timing talking about who and how people celebrate Christmas. We had an exciting delivery of a real Christmas tree! The children have enjoyed helping to decorate it and even made their own decorations! On the maths table the children have been ordering presents by size, on the writing table they have been writing letters to Santa and drawing pictures of toys they would like. We have also been learning lots of Christmas songs including ‘Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer’ and we have even learnt the Makaton actions to the song! We can't wait for next week when we will have our Christmas party!

Dear Parents/Carers,

On Wednesday 15th December 2021 nursery will be having a Christmas party.

School will buy party food and drink for all the children, and we would ask that parents pay £1 per child.  This money can be brought into school on the day.   

This is also a non-uniform day for all the children.

If your child has any allergies then please ensure their medical records are up to date in the office.

If you have any questions or queries then please come and speak to your child’s class teacher.

Thank you for your continued support,

Christmas Party 15th December

 


Its week 5 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in nursery…………………….

This week in nursery we have continued to learn about Arctic animals. The children have been drawing their favourite Arctic animals from the story and using the props to retell the story. In the investigation area the children discovered the penguins were frozen in ice! They talked about how we could get them out and learnt lots of new words such as ‘frozen’ and ‘melted’. We have also been focusing on getting dressed for winter walks putting coats, hats, gloves and scarves on and trying to do this ourselves to support our independence. We cant wait for next week when we will start our new story all about Christmas!
