    Another week on the Farm

    Published on Friday 7 May 2021 by Miss Dickinson.

    This week we have continued our farm topic and have been learning all about animals and their babies. The children had to match the babies to their mothers and also learn the names of the baby animals as they have different names. We also learnt about where animals live on a farm. The children showed they have a love for animals and were very good at matching the baby animals to their mothers.

     

    We also had lots of fun in PE with Mrs Thompson. This week's objective was to find different ways of moving the ball from one end of the mat to the other. The children thoroughly enjoyed using their feet to move the ball, they put it under their chins to carry it and also worked as a team to balance the ball on some paper to get it into the bucket. The children loved this session even though it was quite tricky and we had to try hard!

    We have also continued learning a new sound and number this week. Our new sound was 'a' and the children had to sort objects that begin with the letter a, go on a letter hunt around nursery to see if they could find and a and also try very hard to form the letter 'a' using our mnemonic 'around the apple and down the leaf'. We have also been learning all about the number 1 this week. Our activities included recognising, saying, finding, showing and writing the number 1. The children are really enjoying learning a new sound and a number of the week. Well done everyone!

      On the Farm

      This week in Nursery we have been learning all about the number zero. The children had to be able to recognise it, show it on their fingers, write it and understand this number represents nothing. The children really enjoyed this session and were very good with all of these aspects. We have also been learning all about the letter s. The children had to try and find our new letter in our Nursery environment, recognise the letter, say the sound correctly, sing the rhyme associated with s and try and write it. Well done everyone!

      This week we have also changed our topic and have been learning all about the farm. We have been learning about the names of the animals that live on a farm and we were even lucky enough to have 2 visitors in Nursery. These visitors were 2 lambs and the majority of the children absolutely loved seeing them. They were so friendly and we were able to feed them and stroke them if the children wanted to. This session was the highlight of the week for many children and staff as some of them have not stopped talking about it all week, it was so lovely to see.

          Welcome back everyone! We hope everyone had a lovely Easter break. This week in Nursery we have been learning all about shapes. We went on a shape hunt around Nursery and in the Nursery garden. The children were very good at playing shape detectives looking for shapes in our everyday environment. We were able to find and name circles, squares, triangles, rectangles, stars, hearts and ovals. Some children were also able to tell us about the properties of shapes.

          Welcome back!Welcome back!

          We have also been enjoying the sunshine outside in our amazing nursery garden. The children have enjoyed exploring outside and we are hoping now this lovely weather continues.

          she also tried very hard with our shape activity this week. Awes Al Soliman for settling into Nursery so well, becoming more independent and trying hard to follow the rules of Nursery life. Madison O'Prey was a superstar at naming shapes in the activity. When she went outside she pointed out 'the seat outside on the swing is like a circle'. Amazing shape work Madison. Francesca Mayhew for adapting so well to full days in Nursery. She has taken it in her stride and we are already seeing her becoming more confident. Finally, Caiden Newton for trying so hard with our shape hunt. He went into the Nursery garden and was able to find many shapes himself. He has also been practising to write his own name.

            Easter

            Published on Friday 26 March 2021 by Miss Dickinson.

            This week we have been very busy in Nursery. Usually we would have the traditional egg decorating competition but things had to change slightly this year. However, we have still had an egg decorating competition of a different kind. Each child was given their own paper egg and they had to decorate it using resources in Nursery completely independently, there was no help whatsoever from adults. The children took on this challenge and wow produced some amazing eggs. We asked Mrs Ashby to judge and what a tough job she had. The winners from morning group were Evie Spence, Eva Langham and Louciena Coleman and afternoon group were Ollie Sproat, Hollie Davies and Danielle Slack. Well done to these winners!

            EasterEaster

            We also read the story 'We are going on an egg hunt' and this inspired us to do our own egg hunt in the nursery garden. The children had to find 1 egg and bring it back to their key worker and tell them where they had found it. They then could exchange their egg for a biscuit treat! We also did some maths activities which were Easter related. Some children had to try and recognise the number and put that amount of eggs into the basket and some children had to roll the dice and represent that number in different ways. We also did some rhyming words which were very tricky!
