smileyWeekly updates from Nurserysmiley

Week beginning 05.11.18

 

Anti-Bullying Week

We revisited our Nursery motto: In Nursery, we have kind hands and friendly faces!

We also introduced a new group of furry friends and the children made sure they all felt safe and happy in Nursery by including them in all their games.

Children in Need

Everyone practised counting three pounds into a pot for Pudsey. The children had lots of ideas of ways to help other children, including giving them toys that they don't play with any more.

What a busy week!

In November, we remember

We have talked about remembering the people who helped to keep our country safe, including soldiers who fought in wars a long time ago. Some of the children used shaped sponges to make paintings of poppy fields.

Coffee morning

It was very exciting to be involved in the coffee morning celebrating reading. Year 6 friends escorted Nursery over to big school and read them stories in the Key Stage 1 Library. The children chose their own treat from the fantastic selection of cakes and cookies and ate it in the hall with the visitors. There were even a couple of Nursery parents and grandparents among the visitors! I am sure they were as proud as Mrs Jameson and Mrs Smith to see what great ambassadors our children are for Barwick.

Number work

We investigated what happens when we add one more to a tower of two blocks:

“It gets big.”

“It gets a bit taller.”

“It goes to three.”

“You have three blocks.”

 

We changed our focus number to three and the children found their own ways to show three using their fingers:

Bonfire Night

Many of the children were keen to share their experiences of bonfires and fireworks. They built bonfires inside using sticks and made a huge bonfire in the outdoor area.

Week beginning 22.10.18 

Here are some highlights of a very busy week in Nursery!

Firefighter visit

We'd like to say a great big thank you to Mr Daly for helping Nursery and Reception to learn about 'Stop, drop and roll!' and showing us some of the special equipment that keeps him safe when he is fighting fires.

Thank you cards

We also thought about some of the people who help us all the time in Nursery and school. Some of the children made and delivered cards to say thank you. 

Week beginning 15.10.18 

Some highlights of our week:

A sunny autumnal afternoon is the perfect time to practise climbing and balancing outside.

We are continuing to explore the number two.

Week beginning 8.10.18

Nursery has been full of dedicated doctors and nurses this week! All our baby dolls, friends and visitors have been very well looked after.

We used counters and voted for the books we should read to help us learn about doctors and other people who help us to stay fit and well.

We have extended our work on the number two to finding matching pairs and making simple tally marks to represent two objects.

Week beginning 1.10.18

This week, Nursery children have been engaged in lots of practical activities involving "one and one more" of different objects around the classroom. We have been using digits to label groups of one or two objects.

We have begun working on a project to make yellow poppies, with children decorating individual petals that we will join together. 

The poppies are going to be displayed at Armley Mills as part of an exhibition to remember the munitions workers who lost their lives in the Barnbow Filling Factory in 1916. (In Nursery, we are simply talking about remembering everyone who helped to keep people safe.)
If you happen to go and see the exhibition, we'd love to hear about it!

Week beginning 24.9.18

We have been reading Where the Wild Things Are and we have been very wild in the outdoor area! There has been roaring, gnashing of teeth and showing of claws in our wild rumpus. The tuff tray has become the island of the Wild Things and some of the children have made puppets to play there.

In Maths, we have been continuing to think about the number one and we have been exploring more circles. Mrs Jameson wondered whether the children could make pictures using paper circles...

Week beginning 17.9.18

We have had more new children join us this week and everyone is joining in with routines and group activities. Here is a slideshow of some of the playing and exploring that has been happening:

 

We have been using our story stones to 'write' stories and share them with other people:
Nursery are continuing to get to know the aliens - and introducing them to their family and friends!

Week beginning 10.9.18

It's been another lovely week in Nursery and we have really enjoyed meeting and getting to know some of our new children. There have been so many happy faces at the beginning and end of each day.

We are learning all about the number one and have been finding one of different objects in the indoor and outdoor areas. This is also helping our new children to learn where different resources can be found (and where they should be put away!).

We have been balancing beanbags with Mr Peate:

And we had lots and lots of fun!

Week beginning 3.9.18

It's been a lovely week in Nursery, welcoming back the children who are returning to us following the summer break. We have also enjoyed meeting some of our new friends who are joining us this year. 

The highlight of the week has definitely been eating our lunch in 'big school' each day! Everyone has enjoyed seeing the staff who prepare our food and waving at friends and siblings across the hall.
