Have a lovely half term holiday next week and we hope you enjoy some of the festivities of The Chinese New Year. We will be celebrating this event after the holidays, please see the attached information about what we will be doing.
We are continuing to enjoy learning about our world by travelling in our space ship, singing songs linked with space and sharing super stories like 'Aliens Love Underpants'.
Sharing, taking turns, exploring different areas of learning and making friends!
We have been developing our investigation and language skills by handling and describing chocolate as it melts, experiencing ice turning to water and handling jelly!
Balancing on balance bikes.
Using scooter skills.
Riding bikes with pedals.
Finding different ways of moving safely.
Balancing safely across the crates, taking turns.
Using our arms to help us to balance.
In Nursery, we have already started our Space theme by reading Whatever Next by Jill Murphy. We are thinking about what we might take to the moon and been very busy already making rockets in different areas of learning.
In PE, the children are working really hard at developing strength in their core muscles. They are also using brilliant balance skills, balancing bean bags on different body parts as they move.
Thank you to all our parents who joined us for our Stay and Play Sessions.
Using computing skills in Nursery
We have been reading the story of The Little Red Hen and we thought the animals on the farm were very unkind to the hen. We all then helped Mrs Donno to bake some delicious bread and the staff in the kitchen helped us to bake it. We are all kind and helpful in our school!
We went for an Autumn walk around our school grounds. We saw some of our hens and one looked just like The Little Red Hen! Could you go for a walk at home and see what things you can find on the ground that have fallen from the trees? You could bring some of the things you find to Nursery.
Singing in the hall with Ms Heap!
This week, we did PE in the hall with Mr Manning. We used our bodies to move in different ways and made sure we moved in a big space.
This week, we are reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We are using props, pictures and puppets to re-tell the story. If you have this story at home, you could ask your child to re-tell the story by looking at the pictures. Can they use different voices for the each character?
Look at our wonderful, happy children. What a fantastic first two weeks at Nursery!
