Phew! Another busy week in Nursery!

On Thursday afternoon we welcomed Caroline into school for our last Godly play of the year. Caroline talked to the children all about Prayer. Thank you, Caroline the children have really enjoyed your Godly play sessions this year and we look forward to more next year!

The children have enjoyed listening to the story ‘The Night Pirates’ this week. They have thought about where pirates live, what pirates look like and enjoyed creating a pirate flag for their very own pirate ship. The children enjoyed exploring lots of different materials to make their own pirate ship and seeing if it would float in the water tray! What great fun we had! When the children had made their boats, they had boat races and the children had to think of different ways to make the boat move across the water.

Phew! I don’t know about you, but we think the children in Nursery are simply amazing! They truly stole the show on Thursday and Friday at the TSP Musical school show. Their performance of ‘Getting to know you’ from the King and I was wonderful! It always amazes me that children so young can perform on stage in front of a hall full of parents, grandparent’s aunts and uncles. Well done Nursery you truly are the best and we are incredibly proud of you all!!!!!

We have continued to enjoy our Travel Agents role play this week and also looking at and discussing seaside pictures. The children talked about where they have been on holiday and what they think a holiday is! The tricky question was ‘Do you think everyone should go on Holiday’ and of course everyone agreed that yes, we all need holidays, they are great fun! See you at the Summer Fair tomorrow!

Mrs Gordon is a travel agent and came to talk to the children about her job and answer any questions the children had. Thank you Mrs Gordon for a great talk and we look forward to opening our role paly travel agents next week!

This week the children have been learning all about Hinduism, the children talked about ‘Lord Shiva’. Lord Shiva does not like bad things in the world and will try to stop them and make way for good things. Lord Shiva wears a cobra necklace as a snake sheds its old skin to make way for a new one. All of the children enjoyed creating their own snake necklace to remind them of this.

Phew! What an amazing end to a truly fantastic half term, we are all incredibly proud of the Nursery children again this week!!

On Thursday the children enjoyed celebrating all they have learnt about special places. The children took their shoes off and sat on blankets under the prayer tree. We discussed how removing our shoes is a sign of respect for a special place and if you enter a mosque you would have to take your shoes off before you enter.

We have also enjoyed discussing all we have learnt about different animals and which their favourite was. The children finished the week by going to the hall for a dance session to ‘Under The Sea’ we had a great time.

We hope you enjoy a well-deserved rest over the holidays and look forward to seeing you all after half term.

The children enjoyed a visit to St Peter’s Church this week as part of our Special places theme. When we arrived, we met Caroline who talked about the church building and the different features that make it special e.g. altar, baptismal font. The children had lots of great questions for Caroline. Thank you, Caroline we had a great time.

Continuing with our theme ‘Animals’ the had a visit from a company called ‘Snakes and Dragons Party’. The children got to meet and learn about animals such as, Tarantulas, Snakes, Iguana and Lizzards. This was a truly exciting opportunity for the children and great fun was had by all.

On Thursday we had our very own street party to celebrate the Royal wedding. The children began the afternoon by completing a range of activities such as making flags and crowns to use for our street party which took place in our outside area, we even had Jelly and Ice Cream. What a great fun!

On Friday, the children were asked to bring in their very own toy pet for our pet party. The children got to talk about their pet to each other and then created name labels for the pets to wear so they did not get lost! The children also completed a variety of different games with their pets e.g. agility and hunt the bone!

A big thank you to all our Mystery Reader’s this week, don’t forget if you would like to be a Mystery Reader please see Mrs Bevin or Mrs Molloy.

On Wednesday the children attended WOW at St Peter’s Church, thank you to Anne and Caroline we always enjoy coming to Church and we can’t believe there are only 2 more WOW services before the Summer holidays!

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 for themselves and to give to a friend.

Continuing with our theme ‘Animals’ the children have enjoyed finding out facts and exploring the different Animals that live in the jungle we ended the week by dancing to ‘Down In The Jungle’ we have had so much fun!

Well doesn’t time fly when you are having fun!

This week we have had our ‘Maths Stay and Play’ sessions. Thank you to all the parents who stayed, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Continuing with our theme ‘Animals’ the children enjoyed listening to the story ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ and discussing animals that live in the Jungle. They also compared animals that live in the Jungle to animals that live on a Farm. We even talked about planning an expedition through the Jungle. We had a backpack full of items such as a water bottle, binoculars, camera, compass, paper and pencil, first aid kit and map. As the backpack was unpacked the children had to think why they think each item would be useful. This was a great activity and the children really enjoyed it. They even wrote a list of the items they would take if they went on an expedition through the Jungle!

We also had our very first Mystery reader this week a big thank you to William’s Nana, the children really enjoyed your story about Snuffy! Don’t forget to see Mrs Bevin or Mrs Molloy if you would like to be a mystery reader.

On Wednesday we attended our first WOW service of the summer term which was all about ‘Friendship’, thank you Caroline and Anne for all your hard work. We continued talking about 'Friendship’ in class, the children 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! The children then enjoyed drawing pictures of themselves and their friends

We have also continued with our Animals theme and this week we have enjoyed listening to the story ‘Dear Zoo’. The children discussed if they had ever been to the zoo and what it was like. The children then thought about if they were to write a letter to the zoo what animal would they ask for? The children enjoyed discussing this with their friends and painting a picture of the animal they would like the zoo to send them!

The children have also had lots of fun in the sunshine, especially enjoying exploring our new water wall!

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

This week for RE we introduced our new theme ‘Friendship’. We began by reading the story of ‘The Rainbow Fish’, the children discussed if they thought the Rainbow fish was a good friend or not? They then began to think of their own friends and soon realised we are all friends!

For our first week back at school we have enjoyed starting our new theme ‘Animals’. We have enjoyed talking about our favourite animals and if we had any pets at home. The children also recalled their visit to Windmill farm and discussed the different animals you may find on a Farm, we also discussed were any of these animals suitable for pets. The children learnt about mothers and their babies, we talked about the names of different baby animals and were able to match pictures. We finished the week by reading and retelling the story ‘A Squash and a Squeeze’ by Julia Donaldson, this was great fun and is one of our favourites.

We are still looking for Mystery readers so please see Mrs Bevin or Mrs Molloy if you would like to come into class at the end of the day to read a story to the children.

WOW……how quickly a term passes, we can’t believe we have come to the end of our Spring Term

On Wednesday, we went to St Peter’s Church for our Easter WOW service and Easter Bonnet parade, can we say a big thank you to all the parents for the fantastic hats and to Caroline for a lovely service!

We had a fantastic trip to Windmill Farm on Tuesday, the children enjoyed finding out about all the animals from Farmer Graham. We loved feeding the goats, sheep and lambs and also stroking the rabbits and guinea pigs. We also had fun on the train ride and in the play area. The children were so well behaved and were credit to the school. Thanks to all the parents that accompanied us on our trip, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we all did!!

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 morning, the children spotted 2 Bunnies hopping around in the outdoor area; they went on the slide and hid in the house, then they hid Easter eggs for all the children to find!

Also on Friday the children were raising money for Sports Relief, the children came into school all ready in their sports wear and some children even dressed up as a sporting hero! What a fantastic day we had, thank you to all who supported this fantastic charity.

We hope you all have a lovely Easter break and can’t wait to see you all on Monday 9th April.

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

The children have started to learn some Easter songs that they will be performing at our Easter WOW service, which is on Wednesday 21st March at 2pm. Please remember your Easter Bonnets!

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 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 explored colour through colour mixing. Finally they listened to the story of ‘Mister Seahorse’ by Eric Carle. We learnt all about the creatures that live in the sea, how oil and water interact and how to make waves. What a wonderful week of exploring and discovery!!!

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 love and lent. 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’ and we began to understand that a parable is a story with a hidden message.

The children have had a very busy week. On Monday afternoon they were very lucky to have a visit from Rebecca from the PDSA, she came to talk to the children about ‘Five Animal Welfare Needs’ and how we look after dogs, cats and rabbits. Thank you Rebecca, the children really enjoyed your visit.

Thursday was World Book Day, the children looked fantastic in their costumes and enjoyed a range of activities throughout the day. I do think their favourite was having hot chocolate whilst listening to ‘Room on the Broom’ read by the very Witch and her Cat from the story!

We hope you all have a lovely weekend.

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.

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.

Well what can we say, the children in Nursery just keep on amazing us with their fantastic behaviour and love of learning. We can’t believe it is half term already, as they say, ‘Time flies when you are having fun’ and we certainly are!

The children took part in another WOW service on Wednesday and we hope you all enjoyed it. A big thank you to Caroline and Anne for all your hard work and support. 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 Monday morning there was great excitement in Foundation Stage as the chicks had begun to hatch, over the course of the day more and more chicks began to arrive. This was such an amazing opportunity for the children to experience first-hand. The children have also really looked after the chicks through the week making sure they have food, water and their heat lamp is on at all times. On Friday morning Acorn Farm came to collect the chicks and take them back to their farm, thank you for this amazing opportunity.

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 or use any apps.

Finally on Friday we celebrated Chinese New Year, there were lots of different activities for the children to take part in throughout the day. As it is the year of the dog they used origami to create a dog. There was a Chinese takeaway, where the children tasted different Chinese food. The children baked moon cakes, learnt how to write the first letter of their name in Chinese and even took part in a Chinese Dragon dance!

Phew the children must be exhausted, enjoy your half term and we will look forward to seeing you on Monday 19th February.

We have enjoyed listening to the story ‘Aliens Love Underpants’ this week. The children discussed 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 then created their own pair of patterned underpants. The children also enjoyed baking their very own rock buns this week, they looked and smelled delicious.

We are keeping our fingers crossed for next week as our chicks are expected to hatch!! This will be very exciting for all, we will keep you posted!

Continuing with our 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 very own sparkly rainbow and thinking of a promise they could make to God to help look after His wonderful world.

On Monday morning, we were very excited to have a delivery of eggs in an incubator from Acorn Farm. This has sparked great discussions abut what may hatch from the eggs. Please feel free to come and look at the eggs with your children.

We also had a strange happening in class on Monday 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 thought of questions they would like to ask the alien.

We have also welcomed into Foundation Stage a new friend called Jingles the Elf. Jingles has been up to lots of mischief, why don’t you follow us on twitter @Nursery1TSP so you can see exactly what he has been up to.

On Thursday morning we were lucky to have a visit from Nikki who works at Tesco. Nikki talked to the children about Christmas traditions and we explored Christmas smells. We also took part in Christmas themed activities such as peeling different types of Oranges and decorating Gingerbread men!!! Thank you to Nicky, the children had a brilliant time!

We have had yet another fantastic week in Nursery! This week we have been very busy rehearsing for our fantastic Nativity performance and we can’t wait till you all see it next week, hope you have your tickets!! We have begun to think about Christmas and how it is a time we celebrate Jesus’ birthday. The children enjoyed listening to the Nativity story and discussing how special Jesus is to them.

This week the children have been continuing with the theme ‘The Jolly Postman’. We have focused on the story of ‘The Gingerbread Man’ this week and the children thought very carefully about different questions they would like to ask the Fox about why he ate the gingerbread man. The children have also really enjoyed retelling the story through lots of different activities around the class, the children have been using lots of fantastic story telling language well done everyone!!!

We have had yet another fantastic week in Nursery! This week we had our Godly Play session which is led by Caroline and was linked to our theme 'Special people'.  Thank you Caroline, we always look forward to your visits.

This week the children began their new theme ‘The Jolly Postman’. On Tuesday morning they were very lucky to have a visit from Natasha our very own Post person, she spoke to the children all about her job and the children were able to ask her some fantastic questions.

The children have also been talking about the importance of road safety. In our outside area the children had lots of fun practising stop, look, listen and then holding a hand to cross the road.
