Week 6 in Nursery - Thursday 10 October

This week, we have been talking about eyes and our sense of sight. We have discussed our Nursery rule of looking when listening.

We have enjoyed playing games that use our sense of sight, such as I-spy and hide and seek.

The children have explored colours with paints and have enjoyed mixing two colours with their hands.

We have shared books and stories such as Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see? and traditional tales.

For the next two weeks, our theme will be Dinosaurs. We know that lots of the children are fascinated by dinosaurs and we look forward to hearing some interesting facts and learning through dinosaur related activities.

Week 5 in Nursery - Thursday 3 October

This week, we have been talking about hands and our sense of touch. We have discussed the importance of washing our hands.

Many of the children have enjoyed exploring drawing and writing in shaving foam and using their hands to explore different textures.

We have used our fingers to count and add actions to songs such as Toby Tall is up, Twinkle-Twinkle, Five Currant Buns and Five Little Ducks.

We have shared books and stories with textured pictures, such as That’s not my Pirate.

Next week, we will be learning about eyes, our sense of sight and our Nursery rule of using our eyes to look at the teacher or adult who is speaking.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind you to name clothes and footwear belonging to your children.

Week 4 in Nursery - Thursday 26 September

This week, we have been talking about our sense of hearing and the importance of listening.

The children have been making cup and string telephones and have enjoyed talking and listening to each other.

We have talked about listening carefully to stories and the children have listened to stories including Dear Zoo, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Gruffalo.

At the beginning of the week, the garden in Nursery was covered in some huge puddles. We had a wonderful time splashing and playing in the water. We would like to remind you that children do need coats and wellington boots to go outside in the wet weather. They also need changes of clothes for accidents and when they get wet outside.

Next week, we will be learning about hands and our sense of touch.

Week 3 in Nursery - Thursday 19 September

This week, we have been talking about our families. We have counted how many people are in our families and compared numbers by talking about more or less.

We very much enjoyed your family photographs. Thank you for sharing them with us.

We have been listening to Julia Donaldson rhyming stories.

Next week, we will be learning about ears and our sense of hearing and listening.

Week 2 in Nursery - Thursday 12 September

The children are all settling in very well to the routines of the Nursery day. They are learning to share toys and take turns.

Next week, as part of our theme of ourselves, we will be talking about our families. 

On Wednesday (18thSeptember) in our group time, we would like to look at pictures of families. Please send a family photograph in to school with your child on Wednesday. 

If your child does not attend Nursery on Wednesday, they may bring a photograph on another day and share it with their group.

It would be lovely if we could borrow the pictures to display in Nursery. If you would rather that we did not display your family photograph, please let a member of staff know.

We look forward to seeing your pictures and learning about your families.
