Up in the Air!

Thursday, January 9, 2020

Happy New year! We hope you have had a good Christmas. This term we welcome some new children to Nursery. Our topic up until half term is Up in the Air! We will be learning about all sorts of things that fly, like balloons, planes, kites, birds and finish by looking at the moon and stars. We have begun the term by making hot air balloons. We will be looking at various books this term, some directly linked to our topic like Whatever Next, Owl Babies and our Moon and Stars story sack. We will supplement these with other books, with a focus on traditional tales like Three Little Pigs and Gingerbread Man, to help encourage children to join in with repeated refrains. Our outdoor play house is now a Chinese Restaurant as we approach Chinese New Year.

More Christmas Celebrations!

Thursday, December 19, 2019

We hope you enjoyed seeing the Nursery children being stars in the Early Years Nativity play.

The children have made lots of lovely things to bring home, including a Christmas card, cracker, tree decorations and many other things! They will be bringing their creations home in a bag they have decorated themselves.

 

 

 

Some of the children stayed for Christmas dinner on Wednesday!

 

 

 

 

 

The last day of term is Friday 20th December. Nursery re-starts on Tuesday 7th January, one day later than the rest of the school to enable us to go on home visits for the new Nursery starters. Have a wonderful Christmas and we look forward to seeing you all in the new year!

We have a session of yoga stretches to calm us down before our quiet time in the afternoon.

 

 

Here is some of our children’s artwork from last week:

Baptisms and Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 28, 2019

Continuing our topic of celebrations, last week we looked at baptisms and naming ceremonies. We played games looking at all of our names and their meanings. This week we are learning about Thanksgiving. We have watched a video about why this day is celebrated in America and have brought in American things for Show and Tell.
