Welcome to Nursery!
Hello and welcome to the NURSERY MORNING page. This page will be regularly updated with photographs and information. We hope you enjoy it!
Today in nursery we had the most perfect weather for our beach party!! The children enjoyed splashing in the paddling pool, finding shells in the sand, playing with a variety of sports equipment, sunbathing in the sun and eating lots of delicious snacks! We spoke about the importance of keeping our bodies safe in the sun and finished by eating a nice refreshing ice lolly! What a great day!
Today we had lots of fun for sports day! We learnt a traditional English dance to represent our country, Great Britain. We also looked at the flag and spoke about the different countries in Great Britain and found it on our globe! We then did running races, hopping and had to try and throw the ball into the tyre! We were very tired afterwards!
Well what a brilliant time we had for our picnic in the park! Thank you to all of the grown ups that made it today. The children (and staff) had a lovely time and we hope you did too!
For our welly walk, the children went on the hunt for some different shells. Each of the shells had a letter on it. The children found one picture each and we then brought them back to nursery and put them in alphabetical order. We used our interactive whiteboard to help us to identify the different letters and also sang our alphabet song!
Can it float or will it sink?
Today in nursery as part of our topic, learning about the beach, we made some predictions about whether we thought different objects would float or sink. The children all said what they thought before we put the objects in and we went around the room to see what else we could test!
This week for our welly walk, we went on the hunt for different pictures of clothes and accessories. The children had to find two pictures and then decide whether it would be something you would need in the summer, or something you would need in the winter. We spoke about what our bodies need to protect them from the sun, and why and what our bodies need when it is cold outside. The children were very good at sorting these!
The children were very lucky to finish off our topic about different jobs by having a visit from Mrs Butler! Mrs Butler came and spoke to the children about what she does as part of her job running the school. Mrs Butler also spoke to the children about when they are in Reception, how they will be going to Mrs Butlers assembly. The children asked lots of questions and learnt a lot more about where all of their lovely toys come from. This was also a great opportunity to talk about the transition into Reception for our nursery children.
Today we have had a very busy day! We started by telling all of our friends what we want to be when we grow up. We used our wooden spoons as prompts which we had drawn pictures of ourselves on. The children then made up their own stories on the carpet together, using their wooden spoons. The children then came up to the the front in pairs to share their stories with the class. It was so much fun!
We also had an extra special treat today. Because all of our boys and girls got onto GOLD this week, we had a movie and some popcorn during golden time! Well done to all of nursery!
Today for our welly walk we went on the hunt for different clues of different jobs. We had to match the right 'worker' to either their car, workplace or a tool which they may use. We did a super job at matching them all!
Well what a brilliant day we had today for the singathon! The children did an AMAZING job at singing for half an hour without stopping! We also got to experience a range of different music throughout the session, had a little dance and learnt the name of some very interesting instruments!
Today nursery had lots of fun going over to the main school to take part in a fitness session! The children learnt all about the importance of stretching, did lots of moving around and dancing, and spoke about which foods are good for them, and which ones we shouldn't have as often.
A visit from Ilyaas' Daddy!
The boys and girls in nursery were very lucky to receive a visit from Ilyaas' daddy this week! Ilyaas' daddy is a doctor and he came into nursery to talk to all of the children about what a doctor does. He brought with him his doctor bag, which was very exciting! We all got a turn at listening to our heart beats, looking in our friends ears and taking our temperature. Thank you so much Ilyaas' daddy!
For our welly walk this week, the children went on the hunt for some different shapes. The children found either a circle, triangle, square, rectangle, heart or star. We then made the shape which we had found using our bodies. We had lots of fun!
Thank you so much to all of our Daddies, Grandad's and Uncles who made it into nursery to celebrate Father's Day with us! The children loved having you in and being able to show you our nursery. There were games being played, cards being given and some food being eaten. We had a great time and hope you did too!
