We have been planting bean and sunflower seeds in the nursery garden. We shall be caring for the seeds and can't wait to see the strong healthy plants that grow. We know that it takes a long time for plants to grow and we must be patient.
On the art table we have looked at the sunflower paintings by Van Gogh and have made beautiful sunflowers. We have also made number line beanstalks and have practised writing numbers up to 5.
This term we will be looking at modern classic stories and moving on to traditional tales after the half term holiday. Modern-classic stories will include: The Gruffalo- Julia Donaldson, Where’s My Teddy- Jez Alborough, We’re going on a Bear Hunt- Michael Rosen, Peace At Last- Jill Murphy and Owl Babies- Martin Waddell.
Traditional tales will include: The 3 Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the 3 bears, The 3 Billy Goats Gruff, Jack and the Beanstalk and The Gingerbread Man.
We will be cooking some porridge and gingerbread men and will let you know if we need donations of ingredients.
We have launched our Stay and Play session which happens every Friday for one hour. Stay and Play is when parents and carers come to visit Nursery with their children. It gives you the opportunity to come and see what play activities the children are experiencing and how they learn through play.
We will learn about Chinese New Year, Mothers Day and Easter. We want the children to remember, and talk about the special times they experience with their families and encourage them to share these significant events with us by bringing in photographs to show to their class.
Welcome to Butterfly Class. We have had a very successful start to the new school year and are pleased that the children are settling into the new routine of nursery.
Please name almost everything you can. We have discovered that children's back packs need to be named because some of the children are coming to nursery with the same bag.
We will be sending a library book home every Friday. Please could you bring the red book bag in on a Friday. Ensure that the book bag is named and the best way is to write the name on the front flap of the book bag.
If you have any questions or concerns about nursery please let me know and I will be available for a quick chat before school or for a longer chat after all the children have been dismissed. We are dismissing the children slowly and carefully at the end of the session, so thank you very much for your patience.
Please bring a set of spare clothes (including underwear, t-shirt, leggings or jogging bottoms and socks) into school with your child every day.
Please bring in a named water bottle everyday and sign up for the free milk at www.coolmilk.com
