Wow what a super end to what has been a truly amazing year!!

On Monday the children from Foundation stage welcomed 10 children from Princes Primary School in Liverpool, Princes Primary caters for children with severe learning difficulties from the ages of four to eleven. All the children spent the day carrying out various activities such as decorating cakes and working together to collage two large pieces of art work, one to be kept and displayed at each school. All our children gave such a lovely welcome and looked after everyone so well, they were all so friendly and caring. A big thank you also to the children from Year 5 who helped us.

On Wednesday we had our ‘Summertime fun’ day, the children came to school dressed in their summer clothes and took part in lots of different games from hook a duck to tin can alley. They also enjoyed paddling in the paddling pool and creating their own ice cream at the ice cream station. We had a truly amazing time and hope the children enjoyed it as much as we did.

We decided on Thursday to finally complete our Sports day, we felt as the children had been so looking forward to it we could not miss it out, we had great fun and especially enjoyed our lolly ices at the end. Thank you to Mr McCabe and the year 6 children who’s help made this possible.

We would like to say a big thank you for all your kind gifts, and we hope you enjoy a well-deserved summer break.

Well done to all the children for another amazing week in Nursery!

On Wednesday, we went to St Peter’s Church for our final ‘WOW’ service of the year, the Reception children lead the service as it is the last time they will attend WOW before they move on to Year 1! The children talked about the past year in Reception and the fantastic memories they have. Thank you, Caroline and Anne for all your hard work over the year, we really do appreciate all your help and support.

The children have continued with our ‘Holidays’ theme and this week we have enjoyed learning all about Mermaids. The children discussed whether Mermaids really live under the sea then the children looked at different pictures of Mermaids and enjoyed painting pictures of them.

WOW! Another busy week in Nursery, well done everyone

The children have continued with our ‘Holidays’ theme and this week we have enjoyed listening to different holiday songs, such as ‘Oh we do like to be beside the seaside’ and ‘We’re all going on a summer holiday’. The children were given the opportunity to tell their friends if they are going on a Summer holiday and if so what they like to do on holiday. We then tried something tricky and that was to say the tongue twister ‘She sell’s sea shells on the sea shore’, we had great fun trying to say this very fast! Why don’t you ask the children if they can say it for you?

Phew! This week has flown by, what a busy time we have had.

The children have continued to learn all about ‘Prayer’, they listened to the story of ‘Jonah and the Whale’ and how Jonah prayed and said sorry to God for his mistakes. The children then worked in small groups to write prayers on whale shaped paper.

The children have enjoyed looking at and discussing the different postcards that have been sent to school over the last few weeks, we then discussed why we write postcards. The children also thought about the several types of clothes you may take on holiday and discussed do we always go on holiday in the Summer? The children were shown two suitcases full of clothes, they then had to decide what clothes they would need to pack into the suitcase for either a hot or cold holiday. They had to be able to explain to their friends why they thought the item of clothes would or would not be needed. The children were then able to write a list of the clothes that were in the suitcase.

The children have enjoyed learning all about ‘Prayer’, they looked at different Christian items that may be used when praying such as rosary beads and prayer books. The children enjoyed sitting underneath the prayer tree and thinking about a time when they have said a prayer to God and practicing the Lord’s prayer.

The children have enjoyed discussing with their friends the different holidays that they have been on, we then looked at a world map and found these various places. The children discussed what the weather was like and thought about whether people only go on holiday in the summer?

WOW!! What another busy week, on Tuesday the children enjoyed a football skills and games session with the coach from the ‘Engage for South Africa Project’. The children also learnt about all the different animals they may see in South Africa too. Thank you to those parents who donated money and football kits.

On Wednesday, we went to St Peter’s Church for our ‘WOW’ service and the children listened to Caroline talk about ‘Prayer’. We look forward to our final WOW SERVICE of the year on Wednesday 12th July. Thank you, Caroline and Anne, for all your hard work over the year.

On Thursday, the children had a fantastic time taking part in Save the Children’s – ‘Den Day'. The aim of the day was to raise money for Save the Children, who will then provide shelter for people who have lost their homes maybe through a natural disaster. The children started the day by testing which material they thought would be best to build a den and next they carefully planned what their den would look like. During the afternoon, the children had great fun building their very own den. The afternoon ended with the children from the Worship Committee coming to Foundation Stage to see all the fantastic Dens’. Well done all, they were amazing!!

It has also been Healthy Eating this week the children enjoyed talking about the importance of exercise and sorted a selection of foods into different categories healthy and not healthy, the children learnt they should be trying to eat at least five fruit or vegetables each day and drink lots of water.

Happy Father’s Day to all and we hope you enjoy your weekend and look forward to seeing you on Monday.

Thursday 22nd June – Foundation Stage Sport’s Day 10am

Summer 2 Week 1

Date: 9th Jun 2017 @ 4:59pm

Welcome back after what sounds like a fantastic half term holiday!

This week the children have been learning all about another faith Buddhism. The children listened to the story of ‘Buddha’ and learnt that Buddha is known as a teacher and not a God and that he wanted people to lead good lives by being truthful, respecting others and doing good deeds. The children also enjoyed creating a Mandela out of different coloured sand and hearts. The shape of a Mandala is a circle that represents the world, we then linked this with talking about how showing love for the world and each other, we can make the world a better place. The children wrote messages onto heart shaped paper to place onto the Mandela about how we can lead good lives and do good deeds.

We have also started our new theme ‘Holidays’ this week. It was the ideal opportunity for the children to share their holiday news with their friends, and also for their friends to ask them questions. We especially enjoyed looking at pictures and asking questions to Mrs Molloy about her holiday in Ireland. Thank you for the parents who have sent postcards or pictures from their holidays, this really helps the children when talking about their adventures.

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

On Wednesday morning, all the children from Nursery and Reception arrived at school excited for their Princess and Knights themed day. The children enjoyed a selection of activities in the morning making crowns, decorating cakes and even having a try at juggling! Then to end the celebration the children took part in a banquet, this was in the school hall with our very own Princess Elsa joining us at the head of the table. The staff served the children food and provided the entertainment and after the banquet the children enjoyed some dancing. Thank you to all the parents for the fantastic costumes the children looked wonderful and we hope they had a lovely day.

On Friday morning the Foundation Stage and Year 1 children took to the stage for their TSP’S Got Talent. The children never fail to amaze us with their singing and dancing well done to everyone, we hoped you enjoyed it as much as the children did and we are sure you are incredibly proud of such talented children.

Wow, Wow and Wow a truly amazing time we have had in Nursery this week!!

On Thursday morning, all the children from Nursery and Reception arrived at school excited about their day ahead. The children waited patiently for the coach to arrive and the adventure began. The children were a credit to the school and you as parents as they engaged in all of the activities available with impeccable behaviour. The staff at Farmer Ted’s also commented on the children’s behaviour and would welcome them back anytime! Well done to everyone. We would also like to say a big Thank you to all the helpers on the day if it wasn’t for your support these lovely trips out would not be able to happen so thank you again, it was also fantastic to see many other parents joining us at Framer Ted’s for such a fantastic day.

Then on Friday morning we had our annual Race for Life event, the children arrived at school wearing their sports gear and took part in 5 laps of the field, simply brilliant!

We have continued with our theme of 'Friendship’. The children enjoyed talking about symbols of friendship such as giving a hug or a smile, we then looked at the Claddagh symbol – this Celtic (Irish) ancient symbol of friendship is represented by two hands holding a heart between them, with a crown at the top of the heart. Hands of friendship holding a heart of love crowned with loyalty, the children then enjoyed creating a friendship bracelet to give to a friend.

Continuing with our theme ‘Castles’ the children enjoyed listening to the story of Rapunzel and re-telling it through the week, they have made Castles for Fairy’s as part of our Forest schools. On Wednesday afternoon, we had a visit from ‘Tree Bee’ to remove a Bees nest, the children enjoyed watching this from a safe distance and had lots of questions to ask all about Bees.

The children are really looking forward to the trip to Farmer Ted’s Thursday 18th May, please remember to bring a packed lunch in a named plastic bag that can be thrown away after the children have eaten and to wear appropriate footwear if it is raining the children will need wellies and a waterproof

Thank you, Caroline, for all your hard work. We have continued with our theme of 'Friendship’. The children listened to the story of ‘The Rainbow Fish’ and talked about the importance of sharing and how we feel when people don’t share. The children all collaged a picture of Rainbow Fish to remind them that ‘Sharing is Caring’ this links lovely to our school value of Nurture and being kind to each other.

Continuing with our theme ‘Castles’ the children enjoyed looking at different pictures of Castles and then very carefully using charcoal the children were able to create their own picture of a Castle they are absolutely brilliant, why don’t you pop into class to look at the fabulous display!

What a busy week we have had in Nursery... wow!

We have really enjoyed our new theme in RE 'Friendship’. The children began by looking looked at animated friendships such as Woody and Buzz and Shrek and Donkey, they then thought about their own friends and how we make friends, the children thought being kind was something they look for in a friend. We even discussed the question ‘Should everyone in the world have friends?’ The children quickly agreed that everyone should have friends because they make you happy!

We also began our new theme ‘Castles’ the children enjoyed looking at different pictures of Castles from around the world. They talked about who lives in castles and whether they had ever been to a castle. The children really enjoyed this discussion and thought about questions they would like to ask about Castles, such as ‘Why do they have moats?’. We will be answering the children’s questions over the next few weeks!

The children have really enjoyed placing a counter into the jar to vote for the book they would like to be read at the end of the day. Also a big thank you to our Mystery Readers this week.

Welcome back to our first week of the Summer term and we hope you all had a lovely Easter break.

On Friday morning we welcomed Caroline to school for ‘Godly Play’. Caroline told the story of ‘The Good Samaritan’ and talked about how it is important to help others. Many thanks to Caroline, we always enjoy it when she comes into school.

For our first week back at school we have enjoyed looking at a book called ‘We are all born Free’, this book is beautifully illustrated and interprets our Human Rights. The children paid particular attention to ‘We all have a right to education’. The children enjoyed looking at pictures of schools around the world and discussing if all schools were the same. We then thought about what we like about our school. The children created wonderful pictures and writing based on this.

We also thought about British Values, this has linked nicely with our school values. The children thought about ‘Democracy’ and how we all work together to make decisions, that it would not be fair for just one person to make the decisions. We have now introduced into our class a voting system. In the morning when the children come into school there will be two books for them to decide which they would like for story at the end of the day. The children will place a counter into the jar for the book they would like read to them. Before lunch we will count the tokens and see which story it will be.

Thank you to all our Mystery Readers this week, if you would like to be a Mystery Reader please see Mrs Bevin or Mrs Molloy. Many thanks to all of you who have supported this so far.

We have been very busy this week learning all about the meaning of Easter and learning to re-tell the Easter story. The children have been making and writing Easter cards to take home for their families, baking Easter nests and tasting hot cross buns. On Friday afternoon, the children spotted 2 Bunnies hopping around in the outdoor area, they tried to ride the bikes but were too big so they hid Easter eggs for all the children to find!

Also on Friday we celebrated Comic Relief day, where we talked about different types of houses people live in around the world and listened to a poem about a little girl called Haja who lives in Sierra Leone. The children thoroughly enjoyed using their red nose and a spoon to race against one another with!! They also drew pictures of different types of characters seen on the red noses.

WOW……what an exciting and very busy scientific week in Nursery!!!

This week the children have been celebrating Science week. The children began the week by looking at flowers and naming the different parts e.g stem, leaves and petals. They then thought about what a flower needs to stay alive, as an experiment we placed flowers into coloured water and the children had to predict what they thought would happen! The children were amazed the next day when one of the flowers had turned almost blue. The children understood that this was because the flower drinks the water and it travels up the stem to the flower. We also enjoyed talking about colours and thinking what the world would be like without any colour! The children enjoyed exploring colour through colour mixing.

We have been very lucky to have lots of ‘Mystery Readers’ this week Edward’s Dad and Alfred’s Mum. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your special story with the children, I wonder who the next mystery reader will be?

They then thought about how they could be wise when making decisions around the classroom and enjoyed painting rocks to go under our prayer tree to remind them of this story.

This week the children have continued to learn all about Dinosaurs, they learnt about the different features of dinosaurs and then enjoyed making their own fossil using clay.

We have been very lucky to have lots of ‘Mystery Readers’ this week James’ Dad, Molly’s Mum, Theo’s Mum and George’s Mum. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your special story with the children, I wonder who the next mystery reader will be?

Thank you to Anne and Caroline; we always enjoy our WOW service. Linking to our theme ‘Stories Jesus told’, the children enjoyed listening to the parable of ‘The Sower’.

The children have had a very busy week, we have had our very own Pancake Café and on Tuesday Mrs Bevin made all of the children tasty pancakes. Everyone enjoyed eating the pancakes and had the tricky decision of deciding which topping to have! We also discussed with the children the significance of Shrove Tuesday and how we are now entering a time called Lent. As a class we have decided not to give something up but to try and do something good and helpful. The children came up with some great ideas and then wrote these down.

There was also a mystery with our dinosaur egg. The children came into class to find the egg had gone missing! They found bits of egg shell, but nothing else. Please can you help us by keeping a look out for a baby animal (possibly a dinosaur!) I hope we find it soon!

We have been very lucky to have two ‘Mystery Readers’ this week Olivia’s Grandad and Bailey’s Mum. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your special story with the children, I wonder who the next mystery reader will be?

Well what can we say……. the children in Nursery have had a lovely first week back!!! We have also welcomed another three children to our Nursery class; they have had a great week exploring our classroom. This week we were able to welcome Caroline Collins into class for ‘Godly Play’. Linking to our theme ‘Stories Jesus told’, Caroline told the story about ‘The Wise and Foolish Builders’. Thank you Caroline, the children always love it when you come into class.

When the children returned to class on Monday morning they found that someone had been into the classroom whilst they have been on holiday! Whoever or whatever it was left behind a rather large green egg, the children have spent the week discussing how we might look after the egg? What could be inside? What kind of animal could it belong to? And even compared the egg to a real egg! The children then wrote some notices about how to care for the egg so everyone can help to look after it.

We also welcomed our first ‘Mystery Reader’ to class Mrs Tabibi, she enjoyed sharing ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’. The children were excitied to welcome Mrs Tabibi and we loved listening to her story, I wonder who the next mystery reader will be?

We hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Well what can we say, the children in Nursery have had a lovely week and we can’t believe it is half term already! We have enjoyed sharing a ‘Chatter box’ this week to discover what we are going to be learning about next in RE. We discovered our new theme 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 it was Safer Internet day and the children spent the day learning about how to stay safe on-line, we listened to stories and then discussed who we should ask before we use the internet. Finally the children finished their theme about Nursery Rhymes, on Friday afternoon we enjoyed a Nursery Rhyme extravaganza! The children spent the day preparing to perform for their favourite Nursery Rhyme to each other, and WOW it was amazing to hear the children performing with such confidence! The children have also embraced our monthly value ‘Love’ by baking heart shaped biscuits and writing special a note to go with them. We hope you enjoyed the tasty biscuits! What a busy week I bet the children are exhausted!

We hope you all have a lovely half term and a well-earned rest.

On Friday of last week, we started off our Chinese New Year celebrations and this continued through the week. The role play area was turned into Chinese takeaway and the children have had lots of fun being waitresses and customers.

We have enjoyed singing ‘Humpty Dumpty’ this week, and thinking about what made Humpty Dumpty fall off the wall? We even tried out our own experiment for what materials would be best for Humpty Dumpty to land on and not break. We explored cotton wool, marbles, gravel and feathers and then we voted on which material was best. I think the children were more excited to see the egg crack than to save it! After much discussion, fun and laughter it was decided the cotton wool would be best to stop the egg from cracking.

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

Spring 1 Week 2

Date: 13th Jan 2017 @ 4:22pm

This week the children have been fantastic, and are having lots of fun! We really enjoyed attending the first WOW of 2017, thanks to Caroline and Anne for all their hard work. We look forward to seeing Caroline in school next week for Godly play.

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.

We have enjoyed singing ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ this week, making spiders out of playdough and using our handprints to make spider pictures. The children really enjoyed discussing if they like spiders or not, then seeing if they could find spiders inside and outside the classroom!!! We have also been singing ‘5 Little Ducks went swimming one day’ and practicing being able to count backwards as well as forwards to 5.

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

Spring 1 Week 1

Date: 6th Jan 2017 @ 4:36pm

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

The children have been enjoying talking all about ‘The Three Kings’ and how the 6th of January is the special feast day called ‘Epiphany’. The children enjoyed learning the Three Kings names and then thinking about what it must be like to ride on a camel. We talked about how we could celebrate this special feast day and the children thought of lots of ideas such as making stars and crowns. We have had so much fun!

Also on Wednesday, we had a special delivery of a parcel from two children called Jack and Jill. When we looked inside the box, we found a star, a spider a dolly and a mouse. We quickly realised that these could all be used for different Nursery Rhymes and we enjoyed singing them.

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