One of the nice parts of being a school nursery is that we share the same identity as the main school. This includes the use of the hall and grounds, as well as the school ethos. This does mean that we also wear a uniform, which helps all the children have a sense of belonging, as well as never having to get their best clothes messy! Part of the uniform includes no jewellery and only stud earrings, which need to be removed for PE for health and safety reasons. As pretty as nail varnish is, it is not part of the dress code. Best to save it for weekends and holidays. If you need extra guidance please go to the main school website, or ask a member of staff.
Many thanks for your support
On Monday we learnt all about texture. We look at several different materials in the classroom and then in the secret garden. The children were given a piece of clay to create an imprint of some texture from the garden, either using a leaf or the bark of a tree. We used lots of vocabulary to explain the textures we saw and felt, such as squidgy, smooth, rough, prickly and spiky.
The rest of the week we looked at the Gingerbread man, we acted out the story and made Gingerbread men out of play dough.
We continue to practice our Christmas songs which the children are becoming far more confident with so thank you if you are practicing at home too, please continue to do so.
Thank you to all the parents who came to the stay and play yesterday, it was lovely for you to see you child in the Nursery environment and have fun together making crafts. Here are a few pictures.
The children in the Nursery have been working hard to learn the songs for their Nativity production. Can you help at home by practicing singing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and Baa Baa Black Sheep. We are also learning Away In A Manger, please can you help your child learn the first verse, which we will repeat three times. You can find a version by searching using a search engine online. Any problems just ask. Thanks
This week we read the story The Three Little Pigs and took part in lots of piggy activities. As a well as focusing on the number three. We made pig cakes, made pig foot prints in muddy play dough, made brick houses, that the Big Bad Wolf could not blow down! That is just to mention a few. Below are some pictures.
Mr Horne came into the Nursery today to play his guitar. It was great to hear live music and we all had fun singing lots of nursery rhymes.
This week we looked at Bonfire night. We learnt about Guy Fawks and how people celebrate Bonfire night and how to keep safe. In the secret garden we made 'bonfires' and toasted marshmallows.
We have also been looking at the story, 'Little Red Riding Hood', the children enjoyed acting out the story with several props.
