Nursery Spring1 Week6

Date: 13th Feb 2020 @ 5:00pm

Well what can we say, the children in Nursery have had a lovely week and we can’t believe it is half term already! 

This week we discovered our new theme for RE will be ‘Stories Jesus told’.  Linking to this we have decided to introduce the concept of a ‘Mystery Reader.’ The idea is that each week we will have a different ‘Mystery Reader’ who will bring their own favourite story book into the class at the end of the day 2:45pm, and read it to the children. The children will then be able to ask you questions about the story before they go home. We see this as a lovely opportunity for Parents / Grandparents to share a special time of the day with the children. Please speak to Mrs Bevin or Mrs Molloy if you are interested and we can make a date that would suit you. 

On Tuesday we celebrated Safer Internet day by listening to the story Digi Ducks Big decision and discussing with the children how we must stay safe online and how we do not share personal information. If you would like any further information about this please see our Online Safety section of the school website or click here

To end the week the children celebrated Valentines day by listening to the story ‘Guess How Much I Love You?’ and discussing who we love and how we show them we love them. The children have also enjoyed making heart pictures and thumbprint hearts for their family.

We hope you have lots of fun over the half term holiday!

This week the children have again been fantastic and are truly loving our space theme!!

On Wednesday the children enjoyed our WOW service at St Peter’s Church, thank you Nathan and Caroline for all your hard work! In class the children have been continuing with the theme ‘Stories Jesus Heard’, the children listened to the story all about Noah’s Ark and talked about the importance of a rainbow. The children enjoyed painting their own sparkly rainbow and thinking of how they could help  God to help look after his wonderful world.

On Monday morning we had a space rocket in our class and we could not believe it!! An Alien had arrived and brought us a gift of a book, we soon discovered the story was ‘Aliens Love Underpants’ we love this story.  The children enjoyed discussing the story and then thought about what would happen if Aliens really took underpants! The children enjoyed looking at the different patterns on the underpants and creating their own pair of patterned underpants. 

As it is National Story Telling week the Alien brought a different story to class each day, we ended the week with a super story called ‘Not A Stick’ by Antoinette Portis. The Alien even left us our own sticks, which truly encouraged us to let our imaginations run wild! What a super story telling week.

We hope you all have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday!

This week the children have been fantastic!

The children enjoyed exploring a chatterbox in RE this week. A chatterbox has lots of different objects in to explore and talk about with the children, which link to a bible story such as; Old Testament story books, a dolly in a basket and a rainbow. We then talked about how when Jesus was a little boy he enjoyed listening to stories just like we do. The children then went on to discuss their favourite story and why. The children soon realised that we don’t all have the same favourite story.

The children began the week thinking about Space, together we used a Circle map to record all of the things we know about Space. This led us onto talking about Aliens, the children enjoyed looking at pictures of Aliens and using a Bubble map they were able to think of some fantastic describing words, the children even created their own Alien from clay. We have also thought about travelling to space and what it would be like to be an Astronaut. 

Phew what a busy week! We hope you all have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday!

This week the children have been fantastic, and are having lots of fun! We really enjoyed attending the first WOW of 2020, thanks to Caroline and Nathan for all their hard work. 

The children have enjoyed a visit from Caroline Collins who came to lead Godly Play. As out theme for RE is ‘Stories Jesus Heard’ Caroline told the story of ‘Jonah and the Whale’ she discussed the meaning of the story with the children and also answered their questions. Many thanks Caroline we really enjoy your visits.

We also had a strange happening in class Friday afternoon an Alien landed in our classroom!!! The children have had lots of fun thinking about how the Alien ended up in our class and also questions they would like to ask the Alien. After a little research we discovered our alien friend was called Beegu. Throughout the week the children have watched Beegu’s Mum trying to find him around the classroom. On Friday morning Beegu and his Mum were finally reunited and headed back home to space in their special space rocket. The children have enjoyed thinking about what life must be like in space and questions they might like to ask about space.

The children were also thrilled to have a visit from an author this week. Fay used her story basket to retell her story 'Bob's Beard'. The children loved getting involved as the different characters and ended the session by joining in with 'The ballad of Bob's Beard'. Thank you so much Fay a truly wonderful experience for the children, we hope you visit us again soon!

We hope you all have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday!

Happy New Year to you all and we hope you all had a lovely Christmas! This week the children have loved returning to school full of exciting news about the holidays. We have also welcomed some new children to our class; who have settled so well and are enjoying making new friends and having lots of fun!

The children in Foundation Stage have been comparing the Christian faith with the Jewish faith. They have focused on the festival of ‘Hanukkah’ and why this festival is special. The children learnt that during this festival families play a game called ‘Dreidel’, the children enjoyed playing this game with their friends. The children also looked at the Menorah and noticed that it had eight candles, this is because the festival lasts for eight days and a different candle is lit each day.

We hope you all have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday!

Wow, what can we say a truly fantastic end to a brilliant term. We would like to thank you all for your support during this term, the children have flourished in Nursery and we are incredible proud of them! We have had so much fun and laughter.

On Tuesday afternoon all of the children in Foundation Stage enjoyed a trip to the Atkinson Theatre to watch ‘The Great Sleigh Ride’. The story was about a little girl called Lily, who was so excited for Christmas. With the help of her brother Jack, she was determined to deliver her letter to Father Christmas in person. The problem was they didn’t have a sleigh, and they didn’t actually know how to get to the North Pole, what a wonderful adventure! This was a truly fantastic performance and the children loved the experience of the theatre. All the children were very well behaved, and we were very proud of them. A big thank you to all our parent helpers for coming along with us.

On Wednesday it was party day, the children came to school dressed in their party clothes and took part in lots of different activities and party games throughout the day. What a fantastic day was had by all!!!

We would like to thank you all for your kind wishes, cards and gifts and we wish you and your families a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

All of the children made us incredibly proud this week, when on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning they put on the most amazing performance of ‘The Nativity’. The children in Reception were fantastic actors and the children in Nursery amazed us with their singing and playing of musical instruments. Well done everyone and we are sure you will have all enjoyed the performance!

Also on Wednesday afternoon the Nursery Children blew everyone away as they performed their own Nativity Story as part of our Christmas WOW celebration. Nursery you truly are all stars. Well done to all, we could not be prouder!!

Caroline was at school again on Thursday for our final Godly play of the year, where she told the Christmas story by using the Christian tradition of a ‘Christingle.’ Caroline carefully explained the symbolism of the Christingle and then the children enjoyed creating their own Christingle to take home.

As part of Computer Science Education Week, the children in Nursery took part in a coding activity using Beebots. The children explored how to make the Beebot move and then had to programme it to move from one number to the next. Well done Nursery you worked really hard and did not give up!

WOW, we have been very busy in Nursery this week!

In RE, we have begun to think about Christmas and how it is time to celebrate Jesus’ birthday. The children enjoyed opening up a mystery box, filled with Nativity characters, an advent calendar and Christmas tree decorations. The children then listening to the Nativity story and discussing how special Jesus is to them. We have also been very busy rehearsing for our fantastic Nativity play.

We have also continued to enjoy the story ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’. With the help of our thinking maps and hat’s we retold the story using different actions and then used the flow map to sequence the events within the story. This really encourages the use of specific language such as first, then, next and finally. The children also used a bubble map to describe a bear, they carefully looked at a picture of a bear and then were able to use lots of descriptive words! All of this was possible with a little extra help from our friend Meta and the thinking hats.

To end the week, the children went on their very own bear hunt around the school grounds only to find our class bear Star at the end of the hunt with some tasty treats for us for our snack! Star had also left them with a challenge of creating their own bear mask, they look amazing.

On Friday, we had a surprise delivery straight from Father Christmas! He had sent on of his elves with a present. The present had a book called ‘The Elf on the Shelf’. After reading it, Nursery and Reception worked together to come up with a name for our Elf. Elvis the Elf is our new friend in Foundation Stage.

This week the children have been enjoying settling into Nursery and exploring all of the exciting activities available to them. We are very proud of how well they have settled and the fun they have had.

On Tuesday afternoon we had a special delivery of a book called ‘We’re all Wonders’ and a class bear just like the one in the story. As a class we discussed different names for the bear and after a vote the children have decided to call it ‘Star’.

It has been a lovely start to the new term, we hope you have a lovely weekend and look forward to seeing you on Monday.
