- Today Reception class wore the crowns they have been making this week, and walked around the school in our very own King’s procession. We were searching for baby Jesus. We found Jesus…. All over the school! In every room, Jesus has appeared. And outside, we found Jesus in each playground. We also found the baby Jesus sleeping in a manger! We gave Him our gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh.
The Nursery children have been so busy this half term! As well as settling so well, and making new friends, we have been very busy learning all about ourselves.
We know lots of songs about our bodies, I wonder if the children have been singing them at home?
I have a body, 1 finger 1 thumb, With my hands on my head, Who’s that in the middle of the circle, to name but a few.
We have been learning about shape, colour, numbers and patterns throughout many creative activity. We have been learning about the changes that Autumn brings as well as exploring the garden to investigate God’s wonderful world.
The stories we have concentrated on this term have been:
We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, Owl Babies, What the Ladybird Heard, The Gruffalo and The Storm Whale. Has your child talked about these books with you? Maybe you already read them at home.
We wish you all a restful and peaceful half term holiday,
The Nursery Team
Our Frogspawn have hatched, and we have a tank absolutely filled with tadpoles! They are fantastic swimmers. Come and visit them if you are passing the Nursery this week, because they won’t be tadpoles for much longer. Do you know what they will become?
If you come and visit the Nursery this week, you will see we now are investigating Frogspawn! We are using the magnifying glasses to see them closer, and we are talking about what we see.
But if you come next week, you might see something different. Do you know what you might see instead?
We will keep you updated!
The children have been so busy in the Nursery this half term! We have been learning lots about many different animals. We had a visit from a Veterinary nurse who taught us lots about how to care for our pets.
We have even had our own vet’s surgery in the Nursery!
We loved learning the story Handa’s hen, because there are so many different animals to count. And the show was fantastic!
