We are super impressed with how well all the children have come into Nursery on their own this week, they are all so grown up!
The children have enjoyed trying lots of new activities both inside and outside (especially in the lovely sunshine) and making lots of new friends!
We have also been focusing on our listening skills by playing lots of fun games!
 
Next week we will be adding the wonderful family photos you have sent in to our tree and talking about ourselves and our families. 
 
Why not take time to talk about your special family with  your child. You could sing the family song together (link below).
 
 
We hope you have a super weekend! We can't wait to see you next week for lots more fun!

Ourselves
This week we have spent lots of time getting to know our new friends in Nursery!
The children have had a fantastic week and they were all superstars at lunchtime.
We have been learning about how we are all different and special this week. The children all created some fantastic drawings whilst talking about what they look like. They have also been sharing all the things that they are super at!
The children have really enjoyed singing numbers songs this week. They used puppets to join in with the actions of the song!
 
Well done Nursery! You have had a super week!
I am very proud of you all!
 
Have a great weekend!

Singing and Dancing

Nursery have had a super week continuing to talk about their family and themselves. All the children created their own self-portrait collages whilst describing what they look like and really enjoyed sharing their family members with their friends.

We have continued to focus on listening and attention and personal, social and emotional skills this week and it has been lovely to see so many children sharing and caring, as well as becoming more confident in following the routines of Nursery!

Another highlight of this week has been the wonderful instrument playing, singing and dancing this week in the outdoor area! We definitely have some very talented performers in Nursery!

 

 

 

This week we shared our first class liturgy. The children loved looking at our class Bible and cross and sharing a simple prayer.

Next week our theme changes to exploring the current season of autumn, we will be spending time in the forest school investigating our natural environment. The children are welcome to bring in any autumn objects that they find over the next few weeks such as conkers, acorns and interesting leaves. I wonder who can find the biggest conker?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Autumn and Harvest

What a super week we have had in Nursery!

This week Nursery have explored the forest school area. The children loved investigating the autumn changes and collected different coloured leaves, acorns, conkers and pine-cones. In class the children have created autumn collages and investigated harvest vegetables such as pumpkins!

We had a super Brighten up the Harvest day on Friday! It was lovely seeing all the children in their bright clothes. Thank you for all your donations, it is much appreciated.

Next week we will be exploring the weather, maybe you can have a think about the types of weather that we have in autumn and the clothes that we need to wear with your family.

Please remember to label all clothes and shoes for Nursery. If you need any support in activating your Tapestry account please let me know.

Have a great weekend!

The Weather
 
This week in Nursery we having been learning about different types of weather. All the children were super at naming lots of different types! We made up actions to demonstrate the weather and the children created some fabulous process art of wind and art by blowing water paint!

After learning about hedgehog homes last week we incorporated their interest into our maths activity. The children took turns to count different autumn objects to make a home for the hedgehog!

Next week the children will take part in our whole school Commando Joe activities linked to personal, social and emotional development. Through the Commando Joe programme children will develop core the character traits of resilience, empathy, self-awareness, positivity, excellence, communication and teamwork.

Our focus trait for the activities next week is teamwork and it will be based around the nursery rhyme row, row, row your boat.

Commando Joe has extended the nursery rhyme to support our mission. Maybe you could share the rhyme at home to get ready for our missions next week!

 

Row, row, row your boat.

Gently down the stream.

Merrily, merrily,

merrily, merrily.

Life is but a dream.

 

Row, row, row your boat.

Teamwork is the key.

Working together,

working together.

That is how it will be!

 

Thank you for a lovely week Nursery! Have a super weekend!
