Autumn 1, Week 6

The children in Nursery have enjoyed another great week of learning, developing relationships with their peers and the staff, as well as becoming more confident and independent!

Take a look at these pictures of the children exploring the different learning areas!

Stars of the Week – Sadie and Dominic!

This week we have been reading ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen, thinking about all the different sounds we could hear if we were to go on a bear hunt too!

Well done to Sadie and Dominic who enjoyed taking part in the story actions, and could talk about the different sounds we would hear on a bear hunt!

Next week in Nursery:
– In Phonics, we will continue to think about the sounds we can hear around us.
– In Literacy we will be reading the story ‘Leaf Man’ by Lois Ehlert.
– In Maths we will be learning about and creating our own patterns!

Autumn 1, Week 5

We are fabulous artists!

This week in Nursery we painted self portraits! We looked in the mirror and talked about what we could see. We know that everyone looks different!

Take a look at our fantastic self portraits!

We have also been practicing the routines of the day such as hanging our coats and bags onto our pegs in the morning; remembering to stop and listen when we hear the tambourine, and tidying up at the end of the day. Miss Bailey and Sara are proud of the progress the children have made in their independence since the first week of Nursery!

Stars of the week!
Elishua and Lottie!

Miss Bailey and Sara have been particularly impressed with Elishua and Lottie this week. They always stop and listen the first time they hear the tambourine, and have been extremely helpful with tidying up at the end of each session. Well done you two!

Autumn 1, Week 4

Stars of the Week – Nika and Timothy!

The children have had a fantastic second week in Nursery, and are becoming familiar with the routines of the day, as well as establishing great relationships with their friends and Nursery staff!

This week we made our ‘Class Charter’ display, which helps us remember how to do the right thing in Nursery.

Well done to Nika and Timothy who thought of some great ideas for our charter, including always being kind friends, taking turns and sharing!

Take a look at the pictures below of both our Class Charter, and also our Nursery Street display!

Welcome to our Nursery!

Stars of the Week: All of the Nursery children!

Miss Bailey and Sara are so impressed with all of the Nursery children who started school this week!

We have all enjoyed getting to know each other, and the children have been getting busy exploring both our indoor and outdoor classrooms!

Here are some photos of us enjoying our first week at school.

Well done Nursery, you should all be very proud of yourselves!

Summer 2, Week 6: Sports Stars

Stars of the week: All of Nursery (and their parents!)!

Last week we had a wonderfull Stay and Play session with our grown ups. Everyone participated enthusiastically and from the smiles in the photos, its safe to say that everyone had an enjoyable afternoon, ending with some delicious fruit skewers made by Nursery!

Summer 2, Week 5 – Super Shoppers

Stars of the week: All of Nursery!

Well done to all of Nursery who have had a really busy week! Not only have we been enjoying being pirates looking for treasure, but we have also had Stay and Play with our grown ups and our first ever trip out of school. Miss Bailey, Miss Godsell and Debbie are all proud of how well you have done this week Nursery! You are all superstars!

We enjoyed going on our very first trip out of school this week. We visited Sainburys purchase some fruit to make some healthy fruit skewers to share with our parents at stay and play. In pairs we walked sensibly on the footpath to Sainburys. When we were there we carefully chose the fruit that we had written on our shopping list. We were ready to pay for it, but the kind manager in Sainsburys donated the fruit to our school. When we came back to school we cut the fruit up and made some lovely skewers to share at Stay and Play. Our photos from Stay and Play will be shared early next week – thank you to all the grown ups who came to play with us!
Here are some photos of us on our trip.

Next week: In Phonics we will be continuing to practise our blending and segmenting skills. In maths, we will be applying all we have learnt this year by playing maths games. We will be getting ready for reception too, practising our independence in the class and having lunch like we will when we are in Reception.

Summer 2, Week 4 – Subitising Superstars!

Stars of the Week: Christine and Toby.

Well done to Christine and Toby who were subitising superstars this week! Both children are able to subitise – which is where you can say how many there are without counting! Well done both of you!

In Maths this week, we practised our subitising, comparing and sorting skills by being explorers! First we had to find some ladybirds that were hiding in our classroom. We made sure to use our binoculars! All of the ladybirds had different numbers of spots on them. Once we had found the ladybirds, we practised subitising and then sorted the ladybirds into groups. Here are some photos of us enjoying our subitising!

Next week: Arrrrr… we are pirate explorers, following treasure maps! In Phonics we will look at the letter w, as well as continue to practice our blending and segmenting by finding treasure. In Maths, we make sure our treasure chests are beautifully decorated y exploring patterns. We are also really looking forward to Stay and Play on Wednesday with our grown ups!

Summer 2, Week 3 – Excellent Explorers!

Stars of the week: Grace and Jonah

Well done to Grace and Jonah who this week were enthusiastic learners in our new role play area – the campsite! They (along with all the other Nursery children) enjoyed being explorers, finding minibeasts and having a lovely picnic! Everyone has also enjoyed pretending to sleep in the tent too!

We are looking to more outdoor exploring next week!

Next week: In phonics we will be learning the ‘v’ sound, as well as continuing to practice blending and segmenting. In maths we will be doing some super subitising, as well as counting actions too!

Summer 2, Week 2 – Starry Night

Stars of the Week: Micah and Henry

Well Done to Micah and Henry who this week enthusiastically joined in with our work on Starry Night. We looked at the famous painting by Vincent Van Gogh and spoke about what we could see in the painting, and we gave our opinion on if we liked it or not. We then had a go at making our own version using finger painting! Well done!

Next Week It is our assessment week, where we will see all the wonderful learning we have done in Nursery!
