8/12/2017 - This week, the Early Years Foundation Stage have been reading a book called 'Father Christmas Needs A Wee'.
At each different house that he visits around the World, Father Christmas drinks and eats all the goodies left out for him. Before long he really, really needs a wee. So much so that he even forgets to leave the presents behind. But he dashes back, delivers all the pressies and flies home at high speed to avoid an embarrassing accident . . . there's just one tiny problem . . . he's lost his house key!
Nursery classes have been focusing on the colours and numbers on each door. In addition, discussing good hygiene habits after using the toilet/potties.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our Parents and Carers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Mrs Parkinson.
Nursery are busy this week getting ready for the Christmas season! We have been making our own Christmas decorations, such as paper chain jingle bells. Betsy remembered that in our nativity song we sing, "Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!" It is an exciting week, as we practise singing and performing actions for our nativity, as well as taking part in various festive arts and crafts.
13/10/2017 - This week in Nursery we have been reading, 'The Tiger Who Came To Tea.' The children have been practising good sitting and listening on the carpet, as they listen to the different food the mischievous Tiger eats. We have been discussing how strange it would be to see a tiger at dinner time! This lead to further talking about where Tigers actually live. The book has inspired lots of learning about colour and patterns, particularly stripes. Some of the children also decided to make painted paper bowl tigers.
29/09/2017 - This week we have been reading the story 'Elmer' written by David McKee.
Elmer is an elephant who has a colourful body, with yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, blue, green, black and white arranged as a patchwork. We have been learning about the square shape and all the different colours in the story.
15/09/2017 - In Nursery this week, we have been reading the story, "Going to school," by Anne Civardi. During circle time, we have been talking about how to get ready for school in the morning. Using picture cards, we have been sequencing events, such as brushing your teeth and putting your coat on. Children have discovered that not everyone eats the same food for breakfast or even travels to school in the same way. As well as our book, we have been continuing to settle into the daily routines of nursery life and forming friendships with others.
