Nursery

Week Commencing 3rd July - Week 5

This week we have been learning about the butterfly life cycle following the children's interests. We read 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and made caterpillars using playdough. 

For 'Health and Well-Being' week, we learned about healthy food and how exercise has an impact on our bodies. For snack on Friday we tasted all the different fruit that the very hungry caterpillar ate in the story. The strawberries were a big hit!

Week Commencing 26th June - Week 4

This week, the children have been developing their physical skills in our Circus Role Play Area. They have been throwing hoops, dancing with ribbons, juggling, balancing and riding our pedalling bike. We have read 'The Sport's Day' story and learned about different races - egg and spoon race, bean bag race, wheelbarrow race and the sack race. We wanted to try these out ourselves but the rain got the better of us!  

For our counting activities, we have been focusing on how we can race in different ways - hopping, skipping, running, walking and jogging and thinking about ordinal numbers  - 1st, 2nd, 3rd.

Week commencing 19th June - Week 3

The children have enjoyed a baking week this week based on some of the children's interests. We talked about good hand hygiene and focused on rolling the pastry with a rolling pin and cutting a circle shape using a cutter. They have made some jam tarts - I hope they were delicious! 

Our class circus opened this week, which the children have loved. We are still thinking about developing our physical skills to link with our Cornerstones theme.

What a busy week in Nursery. We have had a lovely time in the water tray developing our fine motor skills. We have had water beads in the water and the children have been using tweezers to pick them up. We have also been learning how to use pegs by pegging pairs of socks onto a washing line. The children have promised to help with the socks at home now!!

Summer Term 2

Week Commencing 5th June - Week 1

 

This week, we have been…

Thinking about our new Cornerstones theme—How high can I jump?

We read a story written by Mo Farah called ‘Ready, Steady Mo’. We looked at pictures of Mo Farah and found out some information about him. The children loved doing the ‘Mobot’!

We completed an obstacle course outdoors to help us think about the different ways that we can move—jump, crawl, roll, climb, hop, run , jog, skip.

Reminder - We finish for Half Term on Friday 26th May for 1 week.

INSET DAY Monday 5th June.

Return to School on Tuesday 6th June. Nursery closed on Thursday 8th June for Election Day.

Week Commencing 22nd May - week 5

What a busy end to our last week of this half term. The children have been busy creating their very own space rocket using boxes, paint, glue, tinfoil and sequins. When they were dry we took them outdoors to zoom off to space just like Baby Bear did in 'Whatever Next'. 

To finish our half term, we had a special story with our teddies and our Key Person. As a treat, we enjoyed marshmallows as we were listening to our story. 


We enjoyed the lovely, hot sunshine as much as we could but we couldn't stay out very long due to the risk of skin damage. Please can I ask that children apply sun cream before coming to school and that they bring with them a sunhat and sunglasses when we are forecast hot weather. 

Many thanks to all our parents/carers for your continued support.

Enjoy your half term break!

 

 

 

 

 

Week Commencing 15th May - Week 4

 

In Nursery this week we have been continuing to investigate light in our fabulous dark den. Thank you to Amelia for bringing in your torch from home. 

We have been reading 'Whatever Next' and 'Peace at Last' this week and the children thought it would be a great idea to make their own space rocket....any spare boxes at home (any size) would be great for the children for next week please!

Week Commencing 8th May - Week 3

 

This week Nursery have been busy being Artists. Linked to our theme - 'What is a shadow?' we have been looking at Van Gogh's Starry Night painting. The children looked at the different features of his painting and used different painting techniques to create their own.

Nursery have been busy making music outdoors, writing messages in the camping area, building tall towers in the Construction Area, reading our favourite stories, playing with bubble bath in the tough spot tray and practising our cutting skills. 

Week Commencing 1st May - Week 2

 

This week the children have continued to investigate shadows. We thought about some questions - 'What is a shadow?' 'How are shadows made?' 'Can we catch our shadow?' 'Does everything have a shadow?'

We went on a shadow hunt in the lovely sunshine and tried to answer our questions.

Lacey said - "A shadow is a black shape." 

Nicholas said - "The trees have shadows."

Daisie said - "Everybody in whole world has a shadow."

Jasmine said - "Bikes have shadows."

 

Next week we are asking children to bring in their own torches so that we can develop our knowledge of shadows further by creating silhouettes. Please put your child's name on their torch. Thank you.
