Date: 18th Jan 2018 @ 5:02pm

 

This week the children have been fantastic and are having lots of fun! On Tuesday, the children enjoyed a visit from Caroline who came to lead Godly Play. Caroline told the story of ‘Jonah and the Whale’. She discussed the meaning of the story with the children and answered their many questions. Many thanks to you Caroline; we really enjoy your visits. We also enjoyed attending the first WOW of 2018, thanks to Caroline and Anne for all their hard work.

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

Autumn1 Week1

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.

We have also been thinking about how special we all are. The children also talked about what was different about themselves and their friends - we quickly noticed how we do not all look the same, e.g some people have brown hair and some people have blonde hair. Then we noticed how we all wear the same uniform with a special star on and this means we all belong to Trinity St Peter’s. The children enjoyed looking for the school star and colours around our school and then created their own star by painting pictures and collecting colours of the school star. Thank you Nursery - you are all brilliant!

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: Can you find any colours of the school star at home? Please can you bring in a photograph of your family for our display?
