One of our nursery pupils has been practicing their pencil grip at home. I love how you have coloured in the horse. Well done!
Look at all the fantastic areas set up for the children to investigate and explore. This week we are learning:
- to say forward and backward number sequences
- to recognise numerals
- about nocturnal animals
- about time and when different events happen in a day eg. morning and evening.
We are also exploring mark making and sensory experiences
With the 1140 expansion our team has grown in size. From left to right we have:
Mrs Flockhart, Mrs Blair, Mrs Martin, Mrs Wilson, Mrs MacArthur
Mrs Braid, Miss O’Donnell, Mrs Hippe, Mrs Pryde, Mrs Anthoney
Our question of the week was
Have you tried mango before?
There was a mix of some children who had and some who had not. We decided to buy some mango to let the children have a taste.
We then found some rhubarb in our nursery garden. We stewed the rhubarb and then made a rhubarb crumble to try at snack time.
It was great hearing the childrens voice whether they liked or disliked the fruits. By the look of some of their faces in these photos you could guess what they thought!
Another big welcome to our latest member of staff Miss Michaela O’Donnell who joined us last week. Michaela is joining us as a Support Worker. Welcome to St Mary’s Miss O’Donnell.
