Nursery Spring 2 Week 3

Date: 15th Mar 2019 @ 2:07pm

 

WOW……what a busy week!

This week for RE we had another Godly Play session from Caroline which was all about Lent. Thank you Caroline, we really look forward to your Godly Play sessions.

There was great excitement on Monday morning as the children found a very large green egg. We don’t know who it belongs to or how it got there! Keep posted as we try to find out more!

This week the children have been celebrating British Science Week. On Thursday afternoon they discussed how all living things are adapted to their environment – this helps them journey and survive in their natural habitat.  They then looked at images of dinosaurs and how they had different adaptations e.g wings, claws or flippers suitable for the habitat they lived in. The children then created their very own dinosaur out of playdough and habitat for the dinosaur to live in; they talked about the type of camouflage the dinosaur had and why they had chosen the different adaptations. Well done everyone  - you created some fantastic dinosaurs!

On Friday we celebrated Comic Relief and discussed how we are all different by learning  about a refugee boy called Lawand.  Lawand travelled from Syria across to Britain and has now started school. The children were then encouraged to think about other children and consider how their lives are all different. We discussed how the money raised today is to help people like Lawand start their new life.

We hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Well what can we say the children in Nursery have had another amazing and exciting week!!!  Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun? This week we enjoyed our WOW service, which was all about Ash Wednsday. Thank you to Anne, Nathan and Caroline; we always enjoy our WOW service.  Linking to our theme ‘Stories Jesus told’, the children also enjoyed listening to the parable of ‘The Sower’ and we began to understand that a parable is a story with a hidden message.

On Tuesday we enjoyed the story ‘Mr Wolf’s Pancakes’ and then had a visit to our very own Pancake Café. We loved tasting the Pancakes with lots of different toppings, which one was your favourite?

Thursday was World Book Day, the children looked fantastic in their costumes well done everyone. The children enjoyed learning all about ‘Rosa Parks’. They learnt how Rosa was ordered to give up her seat on a bus for someone with white skin because her skin was a different colour, Rosa was very brave and would not do this as she thought it was not fair. The children then used the green thinking hat to discuss how they would feel if they had to give there seat up because of their skin, hair or eye colour! Great thinking today Nursery well done!!

This week has also been Careers week and we would like to say a BIG thank you to Mrs Edmunds, who came to Nursery and spoke to them about Mental Health. This is such an important topic and the children loved listening to her.

 We hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Date: 28th Feb 2019 @ 5:07pm

This week we have had the busiest and best time in Nursery, the highlight of the week being our visit to Knowsley Safari Park.  

Continuing with our theme ‘Stories Jesus Told’, the children enjoyed a visit from Caroline who through Godly Play told the children the story of ‘The Wise and Foolish Builder’. Thank you Caroline and we look forward to seeing you at WOW next week. The children have also enjoyed learning all about ‘Sikhism’, we enjoyed discussing similarities and differences between Christianity and Sikhism. People that are part of this religion worship their own God, pray and worship in a place called Gurdwara. Their religion is similar to ours, but they do not read from the Bible like we do, they read from something called Adi Granth.  We also discussed a very big festival for people in Sikhism is called Diwali and it is a festival of lights, which takes place every year. The children also enjoyed listening to the story of Rama and Sita and creating their very own lantern.

We have also been learning about ‘Fairtrade’ by listening to the story of ‘Pablo the Banana’. We discussed how farmers in different countries are not getting paid for the work that they do and using our green thinking hat the children were able to think how they would feel if they didn’t get paid for the job they do!  The children also used the creative thinking hat to think of ways we could help these farmers. Great thinking Nursery! We also looked at the logo for Fairtrade and discussed it’s meaning the children enjoyed sorting a selection of different foods into Fairtrade and non-Fairtrade.

The children had the best time on Wednesday as they went on a trip to Knowsley Safari Park. The children enjoyed every moment, we even took Mo the Monkey with us as he loves to learn new things and is thankful or all his experiences! The children loved to see all of the animals, watch the sea Lion show and then earn all about the habitats of different animals. Thank you, Knowsley Safari Park it was truly an amazing day and I’m sure one the children will always remember.

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

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

On Thursday morning the children enjoyed a visit from Acorn Farm’s Animobile, they brought with them some young Pygmy goats and Southdown Baby Doll sheep.  They also brought along a selection of our smaller animals, a hen & cockerel, a pair of call ducks, rabbits, rats and guinea pigs.  The children were able to feed and handle the animals where possible. This was truly an amazing visit and a big thanks again to Team TSP who funded this fantastic learning experience.

Also on Thursday together with Reception we talked about Climate change and how this is already impacting on the things we love and cherish both here in our own backyards and around the world. We discussed how It has never been more important to make our voice heard and how we can show our love for all the things we want to protect from climate change. We talked about the impact of plastic and rubbish in the environment, the children have also set up a recycling bin in class. The children also enjoyed baking and sharing green hearts to show the love for their environment and to remind them of there promise to help look after the world around them.

This week the Nursey children have had a very busy week!

The children enjoyed WOW this week as Caroline introduced the new theme ‘Stories Jesus Told’, Thank you Anne, Caroline and Nathan for all your hard work. Linking to this new theme 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.

Tuesday was Safer Internet day where the children enjoyed listening to the story of ‘Smartie the Penguin’ and discussing how it is important to ask an adult before they go on technology, use any apps or if they had a problem when using them.

We also celebrated Chinese New Year, there were lots of different activities for the children to take part in throughout the day. They made a Chinese dragon, Chinese drum, baked moon cakes, learnt how to write the first letter of their name in Chinese and even tasted different Chinese food.

We were also lucky to have a visit from a local author Christine Gregory who came to read her book ‘The Antics of Mrs Paws’. Thank you for visiting us Christine, we really enjoyed meeting you and listening to your story.

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

This week the children have been fantastic, and are just loving the role play area, this week’s story is ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddel.

Continuing with our theme ‘Stories Jesus Heard’, the children listened to the story of ‘Joseph and his amazing technicolour dream coat’. They discussed how Joseph’s dad had given him a special gift, with the help of Meta and the green hat, the children thought of a time they had received a gift and how this felt? They also discussed how it feels to give gifts to others.

The children have also enjoyed exploring Woodland Animals habitats. They children used the bubble thinking map to describe all of the animals they thought may live in the woodland. We then looked closely the different animals and asked questions such as, Why does an Owl live in a tree and not a Hedgehog? The children then explored the outdoor area looking around to see if there was anywhere the animals might like to make a home. Finally, they worked as a team to build a home for an animal using the natural resources around them. What great fun we had!!

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

Happy New Year and we hope you all had a lovely Christmas! This week the children have been fantastic, they have welcomed some new children to our class; who have settled so well.

The children have started a new theme for RE which is ‘Stories Jesus Heard’. The children enjoyed their first Godly Play of the year which is led by Caroline Collins. Caroline enjoyed telling the children the story of ‘Jonah and the Whale.’ Thank you, Caroline!

The children have also enjoyed learning all about the brain. The children enjoyed creating brain head bands to wear and learning about how the brain works. We talked about how it is important to keep the brain healthy, and about how hydration is key to an active brain. We even tried a small experiment by placing a small wet, sponge in the classroom.  We had to keep the sponge hydrated and nurture it by adding water when needed. When the sponge became dry this relates to the brain needing some water and time to have a little drink! This also encouraged the children to drink water each day to help them keep healthy.

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

This week in RE the children have enjoyed looking at how Harvest is celebrated around the world. The children enjoyed finding the different countries on the globe and began to make connections with how we celebrate Harvest or other special occasions e.g. How we eat turkey at Christmas and in America they eat it at ‘Thanksgiving’. The children then enjoyed creating pictures from fruit just like they do in Thailand to celebrate Harvest.

On Tuesday morning, the children in Foundation Stage took part in the Zero Hunger Run, which was one lap of the field in aid of World Food Day. This was a real community event; thank you to all who took part and the money raised will be given to St Peter’s Church in Uganda. This will support them in becoming more self-sufficient.

On Wednesday morning the children went to St Peter’s Church Hall to take part in ‘Shoebox Express’. Together with people from St Peter’s Church community, the children selected gifts then placed them inside a shoe box. Once all of the boxes are filled, they will then be transported to children who would not otherwise have a present this Christmas. We hope to bring smiles to children across the world this Christams with our generosity.

The children have been busy this week thinking about ‘Where do we belong?’. They began the week by looking at the school star on their jumper and then going on a star hunt around the school. The children discovered that in Key Stage 1 and 2 the children wear ties with the school colours on. The children also enjoyed talking about other clubs they belong to and the different types of clothing they wear whilst taking part in this club. The children then enjoyed painting pictures of the school star to be displayed around our classroom.

We cannot believe it is half term - what an amazing time we have had! Enjoy the holidays everyone and we look forward to another exciting half term ahead.

On Thursday the children celebrated ‘National Poetry day’ by listening to a poem called ‘Magic Shoes’ from Mrs Molloy’s favourite poetry book ‘Twinkle Twinkle Chocolate Bar’.

This week for RE the children have enjoyed listening to a story called ‘You are very Special’. This provided the children with the opportunity to discuss how they were all very special and that God loves us all the same. The children then enjoyed making their own mirror to look in and remember how special they are! The children have also been enjoying learning Harvest songs for the first WOW service of the year next week.

WOW! How time flies when you are having fun and Nursery are having lots of fun!

This week in RE, the children have enjoyed looking at their fingerprints through a magnifying glass. We discussed how all our fingerprints are unique to us. The children then enjoyed using their thumb prints to create their very own picture.

This week we continued with our theme ‘We’re all Wonders’. The children spent time looking in mirrors, discussing similarities and differences with their friends. The children then enjoyed creating their very own self-portrait. They also created their own unique and wonderful friend using marshmallows and sprinkles! They talked about how they had all created a different friend and how when they all come together, they look truly wonderful.

The self-portraits and wonderful friends are proudly displayed in class; we do hope you have a few spare minutes to come and look at them.

We hope you lovely weekend and look forward to seeing you on Monday.

Nursery Talking Homework:  Talk to your parents about what makes you wonderful.

Welcome back to school after a lovely summer break, it is so lovely to welcome new children to Nursery as well as welcoming back children who were with us last year. 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 ‘Twinkle’.

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.

Nursery Talking Homework:  Look in the mirror and describe what you can see.
