Hello Everyone,

We’ve had a very spotty day today for Children in Need. The chidren made Pudsey Bear head bands and decorated biscuits which they enjoyed eating at snack time. Our letter sound of the week has been ‘t’ – so far we have learnt ‘s’, ‘a’ and ‘t’ and next week we will be learning ‘p’. In maths we have been matching sets of objects to the correct number. In R.E we have been thinking about people who love us and care for us so the children have visited different people in the school who look after us, such as Mrs Cannon and Mrs Blair our school cook. Next week Father Paul will be visiting Nursery to talk about how he looks after us and the Parish. Have a good weekend and let’s hope the rain stays away.

Hello Everyone,

I can’t believe we’ve reached the end of our first half term already! This week we have been doing lots of counting different sets of objects, working on recognising numbers and singing lots of number songs. It has been lovely looking at all the baby photos the children have brought in to help us talk about how they have grown and changed. When we return, our letter sound for the week will be ‘s’ so perhaps you could go on a sound hunt for items beginning with this letter sound. Enjoy your half term break everyone and we will see you back on Monday 28th October.

Hello Everyone,

Despite the wet weather this week we went out on our creation walk to look at the wonderful world around us and to find things which God has made. Continuing our theme of the natural world and Autumn, next week we will be making collages made from natural materials, so if you are out and about this weekend at the park, perhaps you could collect some leaves, twigs (small!), acorns, cones etc for Nursery. Nursery has been very colourful and bright this morning for ‘Brighten up for Harvest’ – thank you for the generous donations you have made to CAFOD. Have a good weekend and lets hope it does’nt rain too much!

Hello Everyone,

This week in Nursery we have been learning lots of new songs – action songs are our favourite with ‘A big red bus’ being pick of the pops. On Tuesday the children changed into their pumps for the first time and they had their first full P.E session with Jade – they loved dancing and moving in different ways. Today we sent home our nursery rhyme of the week – we have started with the classic ‘Twinkle, twinkle’ which we knew the children would be familiar with. Next week we will encourage  the children to perform the rhyme to each other, or if they’re brave enough, in front of the whole class. Each Friday one child will be bringing home our ‘Prayer Bag’ for you to share with your child. Please write down how your child responded to the prayer bag or any comments you would like to make, in the note book provided. Please feel free to contribute any photos or family news to your child’s learning journals as we love to share this with the children. Leaning Journals need to be returned back to us every Monday. Thank you for sending in photographs of your child doing something they are good at and of when they were babies. We will be sharing these with the children next week and it would be wonderful if every child had something to show and talk about so if you haven’t already done so could you please send photos in for Monday. Have a great week end and enjoy the lovely weather while it lasts!

Hello Everyone,

We are really proud of how the children are settling in and learning new routines in the Nursery. On Tuesday the children met Jade, their P.E teacher, for a short P.E session in the hall and they loved it!  We have been really lucky with the weather this week so we have spent plenty of time outside enjoying the sunshine.  On Monday the children will be given a Termly News Letter about what we will be doing this term. Have a good weekend everyone and enjoy the warm weather.

New Beginnings 6.9.19

Hello and wecome everyone to our Nursery blog!  What a great start the children have made to Nursery life. This half term is all about settling the children into Nursery, ensuring the children are happy and building up relationships with each other. There have been a few tears and wobbles which is perfectly normal but already these have decreased over just a few short days – children come in with different levels of experience, confidence and of course different personalities which we embrace. The children have enjoyed making new friends this week and exploring our inside and outside areas. Thank you if you have brought in an ‘All about me’ poster – we have loved looking at them and there is still plenty of time to do one with your child this half term. Next week we will be starting P.E so the children will need a pair of pumps in their P.E box for Tuesday and soon we will be going on a Creation Walk around the school grounds for R.E so they will also need a pair of wellies in their box. During the next couple of weeks while we are settling the children into Nursery, if you need to talk to us about your child in the morning could you please wait until all the children have come into Nursey so we are free to greet and welcome everyone at the door. We are also available to talk to you after the Nursery session or you can always give us a call. Thank you for all of your support this week and have a great weekend everyone!

Hello Everyone, and…goodbye!

Well we can’t believe we are at the end of the year in Nursery. We have had a lovely last week; the children loved their trip over to Coundon Wedge on Tuesday and we dug up our potatoes and cooked and ate them on Wednesday – delicious! This week we have also made jelly and decorated biscuits for snack time. Thank you so much for all of your support; we have had a brilliant time and the children have been a joy to work with – they are amazing! Thank you for all of your kind words, presents and cards. Sadly some of our children are going to new schools in September so we wish them all the best in their new Reception classes. Have a great Summer everyone!

Hello Everyone,

We have been continuing our under the sea theme this week, reading stories and finding out information through videos about sea creatures. The children have also been making play dough octopuses and jelly fish and pratising counting and fine motor skills related to this theme. Unbelievably, next week it is our last week in Nursery so we are looking forward to having  fun on our trip to Coundon wedge and we will also be digging up our potatoes, cooking and eating them along with some other goodies. Have a good weekend!

Hello Everyone,

What a beautiful sunny week it’s been. This week we have been making sea creatures and jelly fish and practising our running and obstacle races for Sports Day. I have added the photos from the Sea Life Centre at the bottom of the page. Hopefully our last few weeks in Nursery will continue to be sunny so could you send your child to Nursery with a sun hat and with sun cream already applied. Have a good week end and we hope you enjoy our Sport’s Day.
