Hello Everyone,

We have been busy looking after our plants this week. In maths we have been thinking of ways that we can measure giant foot prints. For the first time this week Nursery have also changed into their full P.E kit with only a little help from adults – so well done children! We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday morning for our assembly. Have a good weekend.

Hello Everyone,

What a wet week this has been! Luckily the sun came out this morning so we were able to plant our tomatoes, potatoes and a corgette plant – lets hope the slugs and snails keep away! Some of our beans have really sprouted so they have also been moved to the outside area. This week some of us have made butterflies out of fruit which were eagerly eaten at snack time, we have ordered things from the smallest to the tallest and we have started practising for our school assembly. Nursery are doing a joint assembly with Reception class which is at 9.15 am on Wednesday 22nd May if you are able to come along. As it is the month of May, in R.E we will be talking about Jesus’s mother Mary. It would be lovely if the children could bring in a photo of their Mum which we could photo copy and then hand back to you. We hope you have a dry weekend!

Hello Everyone,

We hope you all had a good Easter break. This half term we will be doing work on planting and growing. We have started off our topic by reading ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and so naturally we have planted bean seeds which we will be watching very closely. Other plants we will be planting are potatoes, tomatoes and sunflower seeds. If anyone would like to donate any seeds or bedding plants we could plant, any donations would be very welcome. A date for your diary: on Wednesday 22nd June at 9.15 Nursery are dong a combined school assembly with Reception class which you are very welcome to come along to. Enjoy the long Bank Holiday weekend!

Hello Everyone,

What a beautiful week we have had which means the children have really enjoyed learning outside – lets hope the fine weather continues. On Tuesday the children used the large apparatus in their P.E lesson and Jade and Marie were very impressed with how the children used the apparatus, listened and followed instructions. The children also made Mother’s Day cards and they have done some wonderful writing inside. For the next couple of weeks we will be doing activities related to Easter, Spring and animal related activities. If you haven’t already done so could you please  return the Father Hudson charity boxes before the end of term. Have a lovely weekend.

Down on the Farm 22.3.19

Hello Everyone,

Our visit to Ash End Farm on Tuesday was fantastic and the children had a brilliant time. The Play Barn was a roaring success – I never new we had such fearless children whizzing down the enormous slides! Our visit around the farm was good fun as well as being informative; we fed the goats, handled baby lambs and chicks, met the one day old foal, had an egg hunt, had a falcon display as well as meeting a varity of other farm animals. Have a good weekend everyone.

Hello Everyone,

What a wet and blustery week it’s been! Let’s hope the weather improves next week for our trip to Ash End Farm and also to start using our outside area again. Our focus this week has been ‘The Three Billy Goat’s Gruff. The children have painted some very scary trolls and have built some amazing bridges for the goats to cross over. The children also loved our science experiment yesterday  – the Billy Goat’s bridge had fallen down so the goats had to travel over the water in a boat but the children had to come up with ways to move the boat but without touching it.This week the children made purple foot prints for Lent and they thought about things they could do to be more like Jesus. Don’t forget to send the children in with their wellies on Tuesday for our trip. Have a good weekend.

Hello Everyone,

We had all kinds of story book characters coming into Nursery on Thursday – the children looked amazing and it was lovely to share their favourite books with everyone. The children have also done some wonderful pictures of farm animals and they have loved the challenge of building bridges to balance animals on using lolly sticks and cups. In our construction area this week the challenge has been to build enclosures for the animals and we have also started a ‘Builder of the Week’ whose photo will go up on the board.

Next week we will be introducing the letter sounds p, n, c/k and e and also focussing on rhyming stories. Our main story focus will be the ‘Three Billy Goats Gruff’ with activities related to this theme. Have a good weekend  and lets hope the weather doesn’t turn too cold.

World Book Day Letter

Tuesday 26th February

 

World Book Day!

Dear Parents,

 

Thursday 7th March is World Book Day; a day to help to foster a love of reading in our children. To celebrate this day at All Souls’, we have decided to have a dress up and activity day. Children are invited to dress up as a book character for the day (teaching staff will also be dressing up as a character from their favourite book!). During the course of the day, children will take part in a variety of activities both in their classrooms and across school.

Our annual competition this year is for children to produce a representation of their favourite story on a rock (think Isla’s Stones or Allesley Rocks). The rocks need to be brought into school on World Book Day and will be displayed in the hall for all children to view. A winner will be chosen from each class, and they will receive a £5.00 book token.

From Wednesday 20th-26th March we are holding a Scholastic Book Fair, in the school hall, where children and their families can browse and purchase books from £2.99. Children will also have been given a £1.00 Book Token to spend. Once we have made £300 worth of sales, school can access at least 25% of the amount to spend on books for our class reading areas. We hope that you will support this venture.

We look forward to seeing the children in their creations!

 

Thank you for your continuing support,

S.McDevitt & L.Frearson

 

Spring has sprung! 1.3.19

Hello Everyone,

Welcome back after the half term break. This week we have started our theme on farm animals in preparation for our visit to Ash End Farm on 19th March. Our book focus this week has been ‘Farmer Duck’ and ‘Titus’s Troublesome Tooth’ which the children have loved. The construction area  is back in action and over the next couple of weeks our building challenge is to build enclosures and houses for the farm animals, farmer and tractors. The children have been very enthusiastic about learning the letter sounds s,a,t,i  this week, so the children could go on a sound hunt at home and find objects beginning with these sounds to bring into Nursery. Have a good weekend and lets hope the sun comes out!
