People Who Help Us in the Community

User Rating:  / 0

For the past couple of weeks we have had a really busy time thinking about all the people who help us in our communities.

We have had many visits including a nurse who brought a first aid kit with lots of bandages in, a dietician who told us which foods were good for us and which were not so good and a fireman who showed us some special heat resistant clothing. We have learned so much and had some fun too! Look at us trying on the fireman's clothes...

We have learned about the role of a dentist and how to clean our teeth properly.

We would like to thank our visitors for coming in to see us. 

People Who Help Us at School

We have continued our People Who Help Us topic, but have been thinking particularly about the people who help at school.

We have been very lucky with lots of visits and visitors this week...

We popped down to the kitchen to see what Mrs Kingston our cook was doing and while we were there we enjoyed a snack of toast!

Mr Horne came in to tell us about his work and we were even able to help him by picking up some litter and mending some broken things.

Tools small

Mrs Hawksworth took us into the school garden where she has a shed with lots of gardening tools and we planted some seeds. It's important work to make the school look beautiful!

Mrs H visit small

Mrs Juniper came into to talk about the Walking Bus and other ways of keeping safe around roads and traffic. We had lots of fun dressing up as Lollipop people and crossing people over on our zebra crossing.

Dressing up

This week has been both busy and exciting in Nursery with two Dress Up days!

Firstly, on Monday, we celebrated the start of our new Pirate topic by dressing as pirates for the day. The children had much fun taking part in pirate activities...

We have many more piarate activities planned for the coming weeks so look out for more photographs next time.

We also celebrated World Book Day on Thursday and dressed as our favourite book characters for the day. We were able to choose a book to take home in our "Book Swap Shop", made book marks and shared our favourite stories with Year 3. What's more, every child was given a voucher to spend at a book shop worth £1!

It was great to see our old friends from Ten Town once again like King One and Tommy Two and we are really impressed with how many of our children that can count, recognise and match numbers and write their numbers correctly too. Well done to Nursery!

We have been amazed to find so many shapes and numbers in and around our environments. I wonder if the children will spot any at home or out and about ? Please come and tell us about your investigations...

Celebrate it's the Year of the Goat

User Rating:  / 1

This week we have been learning about how Chinese New Year is celebrated. We found out how the quarrelling animals decided who the year would be named after - by having a race... 2015 is the year of the goat or sheep!

We held our own Dragon Dance Parade in the playground.

We were able to provide our own "Chinese style" music for our dragon to dance to...

Obviously no celebration is complete without some special food! The children were really keen and enthusiastic to try everything on the menu!

We have done many other exciting things including making dragon puppets, lanterns, a role play Chinese restaurant, sending New Year cards and counting coins into lucky red envelopes. As always our work has been supported by ICT...

This week the children have been travelling the world with Barnaby Bear...

They have helped Barnaby to get ready for his travels by ironing his clothes and packing his suitcase.

The children have had a lot of fun finding out about the places that Barnaby visits like Edinburgh Castle and Sydney Harbour.

Work with Bears

User Rating:  / 1

We are still working on a topic all about bears. Some of our favourite bear stories are This is the Bear, We're Going on a Bear Hunt and Paddington!

We have been thinking particularly about the texture of bears and in our work have experimented with creating different textures using different media and tools.

We are particularly proud of our felt teddies that have all sorts of materials on them, We were able to make a long list of describing words such as: soft, bumpy, tickly and fluffy.

Bears, Bears, Bears!

User Rating:  / 1

Nursery have had an absolutely fabulous first week back with a surprise visit from a special bear called Paddington. To celebrate his visit the children made his favourite snack of marmalade sandwiches... Paddington was kind enough to share these!

Paddington 5 small

Our Bears Topic is going to be a good one, and the children have already made a good start with a science activity to find out which material is waterproof and best for Paddington's coat. Maybe you could ask them about what they found out?

Paddington 4 small

We are still working really hard to develop our fine motor skills, in particular our writing.

Threading is a great way to develop fine motor skills too, and more fun if done with friends!

The children have also been "cooking."  Perhaps some porridge for Paddington?

We have had such fun this last week performing our play to our families and our friends, enjoying a disco and class parties.

We can't believe that the term is over as it has whizzed by, but we have had such a great time getting to know each other and beginning an exciting school journey... We have learned such a lot!!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all the parents and families of our children and many thanks for your ongoing support.
