Hello Everyone,

This week we have been continuing our work on shapes, including going on shape hunts, learning shape songs and printing with shapes. Today the children looked wonderful in their spots and pyjamas for Children in Need Day and we made Pudsey Bear head bands to finish off the look. Next week we will set up our bakery role play area and our focus will be ‘The Ginger Bread Man’ so off course we will have to make our own ginger bread men! Have a good week end.

Hello Everyone,

We’ve had a busy week making shape pictures, naming and talking about shapes. We have also made rockets for Bonfire Night, Poppy badges for Remembrance Sunday and Rangoli patterns for Diwali. Next week we are turning our home corner into a cake shop and we will be making our own salt dough cakes and biscuits to use in the shop. If you have any empty cake boxes or packets could you please save them for us to use in our cake shop. Next Friday it is Children in Need Day so the children can come to Nursery dressed in anything spotty along with a £1 donation. Thank you and have a good weekend.

Hello Everyone,

This week we have been counting lots of different objects and focusing on the number 3. We have also read the story ‘Pumpkin Soup’ and we have drawn and described pumpkins. On Wednesday Adhyan’s mum very kindly brought in roti and curry for the children to taste which led to a discussion about the different food we eat with our families and how are families are all different.

Next week we will be celebrating bonfire night and Diwali and doing activities related to this. We will also be doing activities involving shape. Have a good weekend.

Meeting cancelled.

The parent information meeting that was due to take place this Thursday has unfortunately been cancelled, due to a lack of interest.  If you were one of the parents who  did have a concern, one of our members of trained staff would be more than happy to meet with you and talk through your worries.  Sometimes just sharing helps you to see a way to solve a problem.  Please talk to Ms Croarken or Mrs McCloskey if you would like an appointment.

Hello Everyone,

Where has the time gone?  I can’t believe we’re at the end of our first half term! The children have been very creative this week. We have made leaf hedgehogs for our Autumn display and Incy Wincy Spiders for our Nursery Rhyme area. The children have really enjoyed learning and performing the Nursery rhymes and we shall continue to send a new Nursery rhyme home each week for the rest of the year. The children have also enjoyed listening to African music, dancing and playing musical instruments. There have also been many dirty hands this week as the children have enjoyed  planting our Spring bulbs for our outdoor area. Lets hope the beautiful weather continues for half term and we’ll see you back at school on 29th October.

Hello Everyone,

On Monday Coventry Building Society very kindly came in to paint and tidy up our out door area which the children have been very enthusiastic about – so a very big thank you to all of the people who came in to help. They also bought some plants for us for our pots and we will plant our Spring bulbs next week as long as the rain stays away!

Next week our Nursery Rhyme focus will be Incy Wincy Spider so we will base our activities around this along with the ongoing theme of Autumn, All About Me and traditional African tales. What a rainy start to the weekend – hope you don’t get too wet!

Hello Everyone,

This week we have been talking about our families and also talking about what we look like. The children have made some lovely paper plate faces and playdough people, although some of these morphed into aliens and monsters! Today was Brighten Up Day and the children came in looking very colourful – thank you for your £1 donations and items of food and dry goods e.t.c.

Next week some volunteers are coming to spruce up our outdoor area and the children will also be planting bulbs for the Spring. We are looking forward to Open Evening on Tuesday so we can have a chat about how your child is settling into Nursery. Please be aware that this is only a five minute discussion and if you need to talk about your child at greater length then another appointment can be arranged for another day. We will continue to talk about ourselves and our families next week, discusing similarities and differences. This also ties in with Black History Month during October – if any of you have any African artefacts, fabrics, music e.t.c. which we could use in Nursery could you please let us know. We hope you have a good weekend!

The Nursery Team.

Hello Everyone,

The weather has been beautiful this week and the children have loved being outside in the sunshine. On Monday we went on our Creation walk to look at all the wonderful things God has made around us. Thank you for the brilliant ‘All about me’ posters you have sent in – the children have really enjoyed sharing them with each other. Next Friday the children need to come to Nursery in brightly coloured clothes for Brighten Up Day to raise money for CAFOD. Have a good weekend!

Hello Everyone,

Well we have come to the end of our first full week in Nursery and the children have been amazing. They are getting used to our rules and routines and making new friends. On Tuesday we went into the hall for our first P.E lesson with Jade and Marie and the children coped very well in the big space – next week we will attempt to put our pumps on so if you could encourage your child to take off and put on their own shoes at home this will help them to become more independent. The children have chosen a library book today – remember you are welcome to come in with the children to help them choose a book every Friday morning. On Monday the children will take turns in bringing  home a rhyming pack for you to share at home together – could you please return these each Friday. Due to the blustery and rainy weather yesterday we were unable to do our Creation walk so we will aim to do this on Monday. In the next couple of weeks we will be planting bulbs ready for the Spring so any donations of bulbs or Autumn bedding plants would be very welcome. Although it’s probably going to be a wet one, we hope you all have a good weekend!
