Hello Everyone,

This week we have changed the outside area so the children can practice their throwing, catching, kicking and aiming skills. The big green bus has also arrived – all aboard! Today Jane came in to make pizzas with the children – they put on their own toppings and we made extra for the staff – children and adults thought they were delicious! Next week is our last full week in school – where has the time gone? But remember we don’t break up until Tuesday 25th July. We are going to have our end of year party next Friday, so get out your party clothes children! I’ll send a reminder out on Monday about the party. Have a good weekend!

Hello Everyone,

What a busy week we’ve had! On Monday Jamie’s mum and dad who are paramedics, brought their ambulance to school. This was a really valuable and fun hands on experience for the children – they were shown all the equipment on the ambulance and learnt what different things were used for, as well as having the opportunity to dress up. Thank you so much to Mr and Mrs Hand for giving the children this experience.

On Thursday afternoon it was Sports Day. Thank you so much for all of your support with this and I’m sure you’ll agree the children ran their races brilliantly. We also dug up our potatoes this week and they were cooked and readily consumed today at snack time – the children thought they were the most delicious potatoes they had ever eaten! Enjoy the football and the continuous sunshine this weekend!

Hello Everyone,

What beautiful weather we’ve had this week! We’ve been talking about how to keep safe in the sun and the children have also been taking care of our plants in the hot weather by giving them plenty of water to drink. With Sports Day approaching Nursery have been out on the field practising their races and we are very impressed with them – staying in their own lane at 3 and 4 years old is not easy, and they’ve been brilliant!

We have bought a new bird table in Nursery with money that was donated to us from the family of Veronica Murphy. Veronica worked in our Nursery for many years and sadly she passed away earlier this year. Mrs McCloskey worked with her and said that she loved planting and helping in the outdoor area and so we asked if we could use some of the money that was generously donated to our school to buy a bird table. A big thank you to Veronica’s family!

Next week we will be ready to dig up our potatoes we planted earlier in the year – the children are very excited about this and we can’t wait to cook them and eat them. Also next Wednesday Jamie’s mum and dad, who are paramedics, are bringing an ambulance to school to show our Nursery children. Finally, don’t forget Sports Day on Thursday afternoon! Have a good weekend!

Hello Everyone,

The children have loved playing outside this week – the climbing frame, mud kitchen, planting area and water tray are the hot favourites at the moment. According to the weather forecast it is set to get even hotter next week so don’t forget to apply sun cream to the children before they come to Nursery and could they also bring in a sunhat if they don’t already do so. Yesterday we made our own homemade ice – cream which was a big hit with the children at snack time today. The overall consensus was that home made ice-cream is better than shop bought! The children visited their new Reception class last week and this week – Mrs Gilks was very impressed with their good manners and the way they worked. On Monday the school are having a World Cup day so the children can come to Nursery dressed in a football kit, the colours of a particular country, or just non – school uniform. Enjoy the weekend!

Hello Everyone,

We are so proud of Nursery for performing so well in our Early Years assembly and thank you so much for coming to support them this morning – they were amazing! This week the children have loved role playing in the Ice – cream parlour and in the next couple of weeks we will be making our own ice – cream and ice lollies. Also to tie in with the Summer theme, could the children please bring in a holiday photo that we could put on our Summer display. Have a good weekend.

Hello Everyone,

Lets hope the rain stops for the half term holiday next week! Luckily the sun shone brightly for our trip to Ash End Farm on Wednesday and the Nursery children and adults had a brilliant time. The children had great fun and learnt lots about the different farm animals – it was a really valuable and informative experience and I have to say the children’s behaviour and attitude were fantastic. See you back at school on Monday 4th June and don’t forget it is our Foundation Stage Assembly on Friday 8th June.

18.5.18 Royal Wedding Celebrations

Hello Everyone,

Great fun has been had by all this morning for our royal wedding celebrations. The children looked splendid in all their wedding finery. The high light of the morning has to be our mock wedding ceremony followed by dancing, games and party food. We hope you all have a lovely week end and enjoy the real royal wedding tomorrow!

Hello Everyone,

Our sunflowers are really beginning to shoot up now and we have begun to plant the pea seeds today that Sophie brought in. We have also planted more bedding plants that Emily brought in for us – lets hope the sunshine continues with the occasional shower of rain to help them grow. This week we have been looking at information books and thinking about other places we can get information from such as the Internet, computer programs, sat nav and menus etc. In Maths we have also begun to think about simple practical number problems and working out how to put together tricky jigsaw puzzles. The Sims Agora is now up and running online so trip money can be paid from today. Finally, I will send a reminder letter home on Monday about our Royal wedding celebrations next Friday. Enjoy the weekend.

Hello Everyone,

We’ve had another busy week planting. Thank you to Jamie who brought in some beautiful violas to put in our raised bed. We have also planted different flower seeds which should bloom for the Summer – thank you to anyone who has donated any seeds to us. Our potato plants are also thriving and the children have been very excited at how quickly their sunflower seeds are growing.

We will send a letter home next week with details of our Nursery Trip – it is on Wednesday 23rd May to Ash End Farm so pop this date on your calendars. On Friday 18th May we will be celebrating the wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle so thought it would be lovely if the children could dress in their finery for a wedding – so brush off those suits, bridesmaids dresses and party clothes. Enjoy the long bank holiday weekend and hopefully the sunshine!

Hello Everyone,

Despite being a wet week we have still managed to get outside in Nursery – fingers crossed the weather will begin to pick up again soon. We had lots of Princesses again in Nursery on Monday as well as a Knight and lots of red clothes to celebrate St.George’s Day – well done children. This week all the children have planted a sunflower seed – so we will be eagerly anticipating the first shoots to appear – we will keep the plants in Nursery so we can watch how they grow , then the children can bring them home in June ready to plant in their garden.

Next week we will be doing some more planting outside and if anyone has any spare bedding plants that we can plant they would be gratefully received! Finally a BIG BIG BIG THANK YOU to you all for sponsoring the children to do their sponsored walk around the field over Coundon Wedge – you raised an amazing £109 pounds which we will put towards our fund to buy building bricks! Hope the sun comes out for the weekend!
