Nursery Home Links– 20/10/17

 

This week in Nursery we have enjoyed reading Elmer stories; talking about our similarities and differences and thinking about how we can help each

other. Continuing the theme of colour, the children have learnt to make grey, mixing black and white and painting their own elephants.

We have talked about Harvest and how we can be thankful for what we have. We have also spent time thinking about those less fortunate and the

different ways we can help e.g. sharing the food we have. The children have enjoyed making clay diva pots as part of our learning on the festival of Diwali.

We were very excited to have a visit from the Fire Service this week. The children had the opportunity to sit in the fire engine and to try on helmets, outfits and even breathing apparatus! Photos are available to see in the Nursery entrance.

We have reopened the Nursery Mud Kitchen this week. Children have had the chance to concoct their own mud cakes, mud pies and even mud milkshakes! Photos of our muddy fun can be viewed in the Mud Kitchen area.

After the half term break, our new topic will be ‘Is it shiny?’ More

information to follow. Children return to school on Tuesday 31st October.  

 

Thank you for your support.

We hope you have a lovely half term holiday.

This week in Nursery we have enjoyed creating a ‘colour explosion!’ The children

learnt about the work of the artist Jackson Pollock and created their own

versions using powder paint and water sprays! Please pop in to Nursery over the

next couple of weeks to see our finished work on the Nursery display board,

just inside the entrance.

Following the theme of rainbow colours, the children have greatly enjoyed

playing in our Nursery Balloon Shop. Each balloon was a different colour of the

rainbow and the children have been encouraged to use the correct colour names

when asking to buy them. We have talked about things you might say when

buying something from a shop, including please and thank you. You can continue

to encourage this role-play shop fun at home!

The children continue to work on following Nursery rules and routines. We ask

that you continue to help your child grow in independence; making sure they

hang their own coat up and collect their own book bag at the end of a session.

Thank you for your help in naming lunch boxes, it has really helped our Nursery

lunchtime staff.

Thank you to everyone who attended Parents Evening yesterday. There are

appointments left for Tuesday 17 th 2.30-6pm. Please make an appointment if you

haven’t already done so. Parents of Red and Blue group children please see Mrs

Leigh and Parents of Green and Yellow children please see Mrs Cundick.

From next week we are going to change the doors we dismiss the children.

We are just doing a straight swop and Green and Yellow group children will now

be dismissed from the first door near the library and Red and Blue children will

be dismissed from the second door near the sand and story sacks. We are sorry

for any confusion we hope this will help the afternoon pick up process.

We are pleased to support our local Foodbank this Harvest time. The items

that they are particularly short of are: meat, fish, fruit, custard, coffee,

instant mash, treats such as biscuits or chocolate, juice, tinned spaghetti,

tomatoes, pasta sauce, rice puddings, sponge puddings and jam. Please send in

any donated items by Thursday 19 th October at the latest.

Thank you for your support. Have a lovely weekend.

Dear Parents,

We have really enjoyed meeting our new friends this week and we will welcome more next week. Thank you to our current nursery children for helping them to settle in.

This week we have been looking at the colour brown and learning all about Autumn. The children have enjoyed the story ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear’ by Eric Carle. There is an online version of the story on YouTube if you would like to share it with your child. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ek7j3huAApc

Thank you to everyone who brought in their Autumn finds to share, the children continue to enjoy using them in their play.

We have continued to draw our faces looking in a mirror talking about all our features and painted a frame for our self-portrait.

We still need shoe box lids or chocolate boxes of all sizes to help make more frames for our self-portraits and are grateful for any you can send in.

We have begun to plant Spring bulbs this week. The children have been learning about what plants need to grow and will take care of their individual plants in the weeks to come.

The children are doing really well being dismissed from two doors at 3.20. Children in ‘Red’ and ‘Blue’ Groups leave from the first door. Children from the ‘Yellow Group’ leave from the second door.

Have a great weekend and thank you for your support.

Dear Parents

It has been lovely to welcome some new friends to nursery this week. We have more new friends starting next week.

This week the children have been looking at the colour red. We picked some red apples from our tree and Mrs Rucki the school cook made an apple crumble for most of us to taste with custard! We also printed with apples.

Our story of the week was The Gingerbread Man and most of us had a ginger biscuit. We have different types of ginger in our sensory area for us to explore.

We have continued to draw our faces looking in a mirror talking about all our features and painted a frame for our self-portrait.

If anyone has any shoe box lids or chocolate boxes of all sizes, nursery would be very grateful to help make more frames for our self-portraits.

Next week we will be looking at Autumn and the colour brown. If you are walking out and about this weekend, weather permitting we would be grateful for any Autumn leaves or any other finds; like conkers and acorns.

Also next week we will be dismissing children from two doors at 3.20. Children in ‘Red and Blue Groups will leave from the first door. Children from the ‘Yellow Group’ will leave from the second door.

Have a great weekend and thank you for your support

This week we have; looked at the colour green, talked about the number 3; read Goldilocks and the 3 bears, The 3 little Pigs and The 3 Billy Goats Gruff.

We have picked apples in the nursery garden. Drawn our faces looking in a mirror talking about all our features and painted a frame for our self portrait.

If anyone has any shoe box lids of all sizes, nursery would be very grateful to help make more frames for our self portraits.
