Nursery – Mrs Terrell

(We are the Very Hungry Caterpillars!)

We explore and learn through play all through the day! Alongside our experiences at home and with our families, nursery is the beginning of a life long learning journey, and what an exciting place to start! 

Please look at our nursery blogs to find out more.

We Will Remember Them…

We have been learning about Remembrance Day in Nursery. We found out why people wear poppies. We looked at poppies and painted pictures of them for a lovely display.

We were quiet for 1 minute while we thought about the soldiers who have died fighting in wars.

“Remember, remember the fifth of November…”

This week in Nursery we have been learning about why we celebrate Bonfire night. We used information books and our Smart board to find out about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot.  Tommy  remembered that ”Guy Fawkes wanted to blow up the king in London, but the soldiers stopped him. “

We made a pretend bonfire (out of sticks and tissue paper fire) and put it in the middle of our circle while we sang a lovely song called ‘Bonfire Night is Great!” We enjoyed making glittery firework pictures in our creative area.

It has been a very sparkly start to this half term!

‘The Great Pet Sale’ Maths Open Afternoon  

It was  lovely to see so many parents and carers at our Maths open afternoon. There were lots of maths activities to join in with, such as  subitising  dots on dice, playing in the pet shop, paying for biscuits, creating a tally chart of the pennies in the provision, guessing how many pennies there were in the jar and much, much more!

Thank you for supporting the children in their learning! A massive thank you also to our Year 6 maths ambassadors and the E.Y.F.S. team! A fun time was had by all!

AUTUMN LEAVES ARE FALLING DOWN!

The Nursery children have been learning about the season of Autumn.

We observed the changing colours of the leaves on the tree in our outdoor play area and noticed the leaves falling off the tree. The tree inspired us to use Autumn leaves to print with and create our own ‘Autumn colours’ display.

We used magnifying glasses to look carefully at conkers, acorns and the amazing colours on different types of leaves on our investigation table.  We also used conkers and acorns in our maths work by counting and sorting them. We also enjoyed learning a new song about Autumn leaves falling down!

We loved finding out about the changes we can see during this beautiful, spectacular season!

EARLY YEARS READ WRITE INC PARENT AND CARER’S WORKSHOP 2nd October 2018

On Tuesday afternoon, it was lovely to see so many parents at our Early Years RW Inc Reading workshop. There was a presentation outlining the teaching strategies we use, how parents can help at home plus information to take away.

There were also mini demonstrations of parts of our RW Inc sessions and a video clip was played, all about using ‘pure sounds.

Thank you to everybody who attended and to the children who took part in the demonstrations!

 The Lost Sheep

The Nursery children have been listening to different Bible stories in our Prayer Place. This week we listened to ‘The Lost Sheep.’ Mrs Terrell read the story from our Bible and then we watched ‘The Lost Sheep’ on our Smart board.  The children painted pictures of sheep for a display. One of the sheep is  ‘the lost sheep’ and features on a ‘lost’ poster. Can you find the lost sheep in Nursery? The children have been looking for it while they have been learning through play!
