During Anti-Bullying Week, the focus in Nursery was all on being kind. We learned about St Martin, who was a good, kind man, and we made our own lanterns to celebrate Martinstag with a traditional parade. See the links below if you are still struggling to follow the song! It is a very catchy tune!
We would like to say a special thank you to Mrs Smith's brother who sent a fabulous book and some very fancy lanterns all the way from Germany.
At the end of the week, we talked about some of the ways Pudsey Bear helps to raise money for families who are struggling. Our children had some lovely ideas for helping others.
It has been lovely to see all our children back in Nursery after the half-term break. Everyone quickly settled back into familiar routines and enjoyed catching up with friends and favourite activities. We haven't let the weather dampen our spirits!
Now that all the amazing artwork has been on display, we can share a few photos of Nursery children working hard to complete their masterpieces. We hope everyone enjoyed viewing the pictures on Wednesday evening. If anyone missed the show and would like to see their child's work, please let Mrs Jameson know.
Supertato stories are always super-popular at Nursery! This week we have squished the evil peas who invaded Nursery and retold the Supertato story through pictures. The children really enjoyed 'reading' their versions of the story when we displayed them in the carpet room.
In amongst all this super-excitement, we still found plenty of time for creative play, role-play, singing and digit hunts in the indoor and outdoor areas. What a busy week!
Following on from discussions about being 'super-helpful' at Nursery and at home, this week we thought about all the people who help us. We read stories about characters with different professions and the children voted for the story they wanted to hear (by placing a counter or pebble). We also made cards for some of the people who help us every day in Nursery.
This week, we have moved on to learning all about the number two. And with all the rain we have been having, it seemed a very good week to focus on the story featured on our reflection table this half-term! Our activities including performing a body percussion rainstorm, finding two of all the animals in our small world basket and retelling the story indoors and out. Our children were very good at hopping like rabbits, slithering like snakes and snapping like crocodiles. By the end of the week, we had an ark in the outdoor area, which featured ramps, toys ("We need something for the animals to play with!"), a table, a door mat and a swimming pool!
After sharing these stories, the children could all talk about the vegetables they can eat to help them stay super-healthy.
At Nursery we are super-kind to each other. We have kind hands and friendly faces!
Congratulations to all our new starters, who have had the most amazing week in Nursery!
We have a lovely week meeting lots of new Nursery children and enjoying some 'Stay and Play' sessions to support transitions. Mrs Jameson and Mrs Smith are very excited thinking of all the fun we will have together this term.
