After the cold spell over the weekend the children had lots of stories about snow and ice when they came in on Monday! We have been exploring ice in the nursery garden and setting up new exciting play opportunities within the room as part of our responsive planning.
We have been learning all about St Andrew’s Day at nursery today. We were reading stories, watching small video clips, highland dancing and singing scottish songs!
The blue group took a trip to the library today and we absolutely loved it! The librarian read us some stories and we borrowed some Christmas stories to share with our friends back at nursery.
Over the last week the Orange, Blue and Yellow Groups have been exploring this traditional story. They have been listening to it being read, acting it out in person; both with and without props and they have also been re-telling the story in small groups! A huge round of applause to you all!
Just a reminder that tomorrow, Friday 26 Nov is the last day to order your child’s Christmas lunch. Even if your child would prefer a packed lunch, please return your form so that we know what everyone is having on the day.
The Purple group went to the library on Tuesday and Ziggy the road safety alien was pleased to report that the children were fantastic when walking by the road. They shared their knowledge of road safety, wore their hi-viz jackets and held hands with their partner all the way to the library. When they got to the library they sat and listened to librarian read them two stories. Afterwards they chose a book to look at by themselves and as a group chose two books to take back to nursery. Some of the children were keen to borrow books to take home so the library staff gave us some forms which you can use to take your child to the library and borrow books.
The next group to visit the library will be the purple group. The purple group will be leaving the nursery at 10.15am on Tuesday 23 Nov. If you would like to accompany us as a parent helper, please let a member of staff know.
|Mrs Hardman and the children were able to use a plank, block and cuddly duck to explore forces. They understood about taking turns, and while waiting cheered when another child was successful. The children practised their backward counting from 5-0 in preparation for lift off.|
At a loose end on the 4th December? Why not pop along to the PTA christmas fayre and support their effort to raise funds for the school and nursery.
