We are so proud of how amazingly well the Nursery children have settled. They have been fantastic. We have been learning lots of new things already. We have been learning how to share all the great toys with one another, sit quietly and listen to a story, line up sensibly ready to go outside into the garden and of course how to wash our hands!
Here are a few photographs of us getting busy!
We are so excited to be meeting our new Nursery children this week and saying a huge welcome back to those we haven't seen since March.
Here we all are ready to say hello to you all and have a super time in Nursery!
From L to R: Mrs Simpson, Mrs Jones, Mr Anderson and Miss Roberts
Nursery have been busy planting potatoes in the nursery garden. We are going to water them regularly and watch them grow!
We have been exploring in the puddles. We have been splashing and stamping and watching how they change before and after the rainy times.
Our focus book has been Little Red Riding Hood
We have been drawing paths through the woods to get to Grandma's house. This has helped us with continuing to learn how to hold our pens with an efficient grip.
We hope everybody had a wonderfully festive time over the Christmas period. Thank you very much for your kind and generous gifts, we really appreciated them.
We are currently welcoming our new starters to Nursery and helping them to settle in. The big boys and girls are being very kind and showing them how to play in all the different areas.
In Nursery we helped the children to recognise that today was a very special day.
We watched the "Poppies" video on cbeebies and discussed how the rabbit might have felt when the darkness came and afterwards when it was over. We took part in the two minute silence at 11 am and watched the news. We talked in simple terms with the children about the importance of remembering and saying thank you to those people who have helped keep our country safe in the past, and still do now. The children printed poppy pictures and understand that the poppy is a symbol of saying thank you.
Our focus book has been Hairy Maclary for the last couple of weeks. Here we are learning how to jump from the hill and land on both feet like Scarface Claw.
Lots of children have been exploring the transient art area. This is where we get creative making pictures by placing objects on paper, but we don't use any glue so we can have a go again and again!
Our new children have settled beautifully into Nursery. They are busy exploring and enjoying making new friends.
