We raised £372.43 for Barnardo’s. Thank you to everyone who donated. All of the children had lots of fun taking part and raising awareness of this worthy cause.

We would like to thank you all for a wonderful year.  It has truly been a pleasure to be part of your child’s learning journey through Nursery and we wish them all the best for Reception!  We’ve had the privilege of getting to know them and watch them grow this year.  We will miss them tremendously.

We would also like to say a massive thank you for all your kind messages and generous gifts – we feel very lucky indeed. We hope you all have a lovely holiday.

Love the Nursery Team.

Your child’s learning journey

We hope you have enjoyed looking at your child’s learning journey. It is amazing to see the progress they have made since the start of the year! Please let us know if you have trouble accessing it.

Thank you for all of the contributions we have received towards school fund this year.  Nursery have put our school fund towards the EarthSong Workshop this week and the children had a fabulous time!   They  had the opportunity to play a wide range of instruments including shakers, drums, bells and a Kora (African Harp).They played a range of rhythm games and explored playing  loud, quiet, fast and slow. The presenter played a Yidakis and explained it is made from a fallen branch and is hollow because insects eat through it. The children also used props to help tell a West African story about a fisherman who caught  fish to feed the crocodile to keep everyone safe.

Sports Day

It was lovely to see so many of you on Wednesday supporting the children. I am sure you agree they were fantastic. Well done Nursery… we were really proud of them.

This week’s learning

The children have had a great week! They thoroughly enjoyed reading the story, Mr Gumpy’s Outing, pretending to be the different characters in the story! Linked to that, they also enjoyed learning different facts about farm animals ,for example, a pig likes to roll in mud to stay cool! During free flow, they had great fun creating models from boxes and painting pebbles. Later in the week, they learnt about Sun Safety- the three key words being, WRAP, SPLAT and HAT.

Home Learning

In our sound groups we have been learning about initial sounds. Can you play ‘I Spy’ with someone in your family?

This week we enjoyed singing Nursery Rhymes using the percussion instruments. Next week we will be learning ‘Old MacDonald had a Farm’.

 Next week our story of the week is: Mr Gumpy’s Outing by John Burnigham. In the story different animals go for a ride in his boat. These include: calf, sheep, chicken, rabbit, cat, dog and goat. Key words from the story include: squabble, trample, and tease.

Please go through these words with your child to support  their learning. Thank you.
