Sports Day

Over the past two weeks we have been busy practising for Sports' Day. We had  a great day on Friday and all the children did really well. Here we are getting ready for our big day.

And here we are in action today!

In maths we have thinking of the different ways you can make a number. 

On Wednesday it was good to see many of the Nursery children participating in the Active Travel Breakfast. Many enjoyed meeting:

Have a lovely weekend

Pond week and Art week

We have had a busy couple of weeks in Nursery. The week before half term we enjoyed visiting the pond. We managed to catch a pond skater and a fish. The children were very patient as they dipped their nets trying to catch the fish who seemed quite shy!

When the children brought in their favourite books , one book we particularly enjoyed was "Kitchen  Disco." Last week we listened to the story again of what all the different fruits got up to when left alone in the kitchen. We then made a fruit smoothie and enjoyed drinking it together in the sunshine.
This week we have joined with the rest of the school to take part in Art Week. All the classes have designed a banner. Our theme was Responsibility and Creation. The banners will be displayed in the school so do take a look.

This half term we have started a new topic on animals. This week we began by talking about which animals we would like to find out about. We also voted on our favourite animal and thought about the different ways animals move.

Next week we will continue to practise for Sports' day. Please can all children wear trainers to school on Thursday. All parents and carers are welcome to come and watch the children take part in Sports' Day on the morning of Friday 23rd June.

Favourite Stories

Last week we welcomed some new friends to Nursery in the form of  caterpillars. The children have been very interested in watching them grow and we have been amazed at how quickly they have changed. They even have names: Ted, Sydney and Zima! We are looking forward to their next stage when we will be putting them in the net as we wait for them to hatch out. Thank you Henry for bringing them in. 

This week we have enjoyed finding out a little more about the children's favourite books. Thank you for sending them in for "show and tell." The children were very good at explaining why they liked their book and we have had great fun sharing them at the end of the morning. Here are a few of them.

We have also been decorating the first letter of our names using leaves and flowers. These will be displayed in nursery next week so do take a look at your child's.  In RE last week we made some lovely collage doves as we learned about what happened at Pentecost. We have hung them up in the classroom.
This week we have also been thinking about numbers in the environment. Some of us went on a walk around the school to see what numbers we could spot.

Next week we will be visiting the school pond as part of our activities on the story "The Pig and The Pond." We are hoping that the fish will pop up and say hello and we are going to see if we can catch one. In maths we will be counting and comparing amounts  and matching numbers to the correct amount of objects. 
Here are a few of the other things we have done this week. 

A quick request:We are running short of recycling materials for model making. if anyone has any they could donate please do bring them in. 
I hope you have a lovely weekend
