Please Mr Panda

In Nursery our focus has been on having good manners. We listened to a story called ‘Please Mr Panda’ and talked about how important it is to remember to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’ In this story Mr Panda is giving away doughnuts, but not everyone gets one. Can you guess why not? Afterwards, we used paper plates to make doughnuts in our creative area to put in our ‘Please Mr Panda’ story sack. We also printed repeating patterns using paint and big hair doughnuts!

As a special treat at the end of the week the Hungry Caterpillars had a doughnut at snack time. They were enormous, so we decided to cut them in half. This led us to a mathematical discussion about cutting circles in half and counting out the correct number of semi circles for snack time. We must say a huge ‘THANK YOU’ to ‘Dunkin’ Doughnuts’ in Birdwell for generously giving us the delicious doughnuts without charge and Mrs Kay for kindly organising everything.

We also talked about having a balance between eating yummy food, like doughnuts, as a treat, and doing exercise. Miss Kelly came to lead the children in an exercise session. It was really good fun and we are looking forward to our weekly exercise sessions. Thank you Miss Kelly!

Happy Wedding Day!

The nursery children have been learning about marriage and weddings for two weeks. This week they have taken part in a pretend wedding. A corner of nursery transformed into St. Peter’s church and Mrs Terrell pretended to be the vicar. It was a lovely, happy occasion. We must say a HUGE thank you to Kayleigh Bell, Danni Godfrey, Wendy Oldfield, Mrs Flannery and Patricia Godfrey for all their help. The beautiful wedding cake was made by Patricia Godfrey and it was absolutely delicious!

Congratulations to the happy couple, Winter and Freddie!

We can add ourselves to the ‘Best of the British’! We blew our parents away with our fantastic Coldplay song at the Best of British Concert.
