Nursery Autumn1Week7

Date: 18th Oct 2018 @ 4:07pm

 

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. we have turkey at Christmas and in America they have 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 1 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 is to 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 to be placed 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 all over the world 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 and we look forward to another exciting half term ahead.

Nursery1 Autumn1 Week6

Date: 11th Oct 2018 @ 5:08pm

This week the children have been busy thinking about Autumn. We enjoyed going on an Autumn walk to St Peters’ Church garden to collect conkers, acorns, pine cones and leaves. The children then used these Autumn treasures in lots of different activities around the classroom, such as making Hedgehogs out of leaves and pine cone rolling. We even made tasty Hedgehog bread rolls! We really enjoyed listening to the story ‘Guess how much I love you in the Autumn’. We would also like to say a big ‘thank you’ for bringing in the Autumn treasures you have collected at home, we have really enjoyed exploring and investigating them.  What a lovely time we have had!

Talking Homework: 

Can you spot any numbers in the environment? For example, on a bus or the number of your house.

Nursery Autumn1 Week5

Date: 5th Oct 2018 @ 10:36am

Continuing with the Harvest theme, the children have been thinking about how food grows around the world. The children used their senses to explore different fruit, such as passion fruit and papaya. They then looked on a globe to find which country the fruit was grown in and talked about how it would be transported to our country. 

The children have also been busy making cakes for our afternoon tea, this took place on Wednesday afternoon and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. The children painted self-portraits and talked about what they are wonderful at, they also song some songs. We are so proud of them all!

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’. The children loved the magic shoes Mrs Molloy was wearing and were inspired to design their own pair of magic shoes and think about what they would be able to do in them. The children came up with some fantastic ideas!

Talking Homework: 

Please fill the bag provided with Autumn treasures that you and your child collect together. This could be from your local park or woods and can include colourful leaves, pine cones, conkers or anything else relating to Autumn. Please return next week so we can explore and investigate.

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.
