Hello Everyone,

We have had another great week in Nursery – the children have really settled into our Nursery routine and we are getting to learn each other’s names and make new friends. The weather continues to be  kind to us so we have made the most of spending time outside – the bubble wands in particular have been a big hit this week.

Next Thursday (30th Sep) is school photos day when the children will have their individual photo taken, so make sure the children are looking super smart that day! On Friday (1st Oct) it is ‘Go Green For Cafod’ so the children need to come to school dressed in green and bring in £1(per family) and tinned or dried food items. Our Nursery rhyme for next week will be ‘Diddle, Diddle Dumpling’, which we will send out on Monday.

In the next couple of weeks we will be planting Spring bulbs and bedding plants so any donations of these you would like to send in, would very gratefully be recieved. If any of you have old rolls of wallpaper you no longer need these would be great to use for mark making activities in Nursery. We would also like you to collect any plastic bottle tops and cardboard tubes from kitchen paper rolls etc (no loo rolls please!) which we could use for counting/creative/construction activities. Now we are officially in Autumn and the weather is set to get colder and those sniffles begin to appear we would also be grateful of any boxes of tissues we could use. Thank you and have a good weekend.

Hello Everyone,

The children have had a brilliant week and because they have settled in so well, we keep on forgetting that this has only been their first full week in Nursery – so well done children! This week the children have been put into their key worker groups, so if they are a snappy crocodile they are in Mrs McCloskey’s group and if they are a jumpy kangaroo they are with Mrs Schofield. We usually split into groups for P.E, story time, phonics/listening activities and games. The children have also been shown how to self register this week, by finding their name label when they first come in and sticking it to our name tree. On Tuesday the children loved their first P.E lesson with Miss Jade in our school hall. Every Monday the children will be given a new nursery rhyme to keep at home – we encourage the children to learn the rhyme off by heart along with the actions so they can perform it to each other at Nursery. Next week we will continue to look at our All About Me posters and talk about our families. If you haven’t already done so could you complete the media consent form on our website so I know which photos I can post of the children. Have a lovely weekend and lets hope the sunshine lasts!

New Beginnings

Hello Everyone,

What a fantastic week we’ve had in our Nursery! We have loved meeting all of our new children and families and I have to say, they have been absolute superstars. This week has been spent getting to know each other, settling the children so they feel safe, comfortable and happy and getting used to our rules and routines. Lots of time has been spent outside because of the beautiful weather we are having at the moment – the children have particularly enjoyed the mud kitchen, water and sand activities, the diggers and mud, dressing up and role-play. During the next couple of weeks we will continue to get to know the children, talk about their ‘All About Me’ posters and find out about the children’s interests which will help us to plan future activities.The adults in Nursery will also be assessing the children to find out the children’s starting points and I will also be carrying out a speech and language asessment , called ‘Wellcomm’ which all Early Years settings are required to do, and of course we will be having lots of fun! Starting from this Tuesday, we are very lucky to have Miss Jade  coming into school  to do P.E with the children so don’t forget to have your children  ready dressed and raring to go. Every week I will place a Teddy Bear money pot outside our Nursery door – this is for you to pop in a £1 donation which goes towards things such as cooking ingredients and compost for planting etc. We usually post photographs of the children on our Friday blog but we need to wait for everyone to fill in the data protection forms on the school website ,so we know whose photo we can put on, or not, so if you could fill these out as soon as possible, this would be greatly appreciated.  Finally, we have six September birthdays in Nursery so A big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Grace, Rabia, Layla and Rose A who had their birthdays in the first week of September, Lily who had her birthday yesterday and Isabelle who celebrates her birthday tomorrow. Have a good weekend everyone and try to stay dry!

Mrs Schofield and Mrs McCloskey

A fond farewell

Hello Everyone,

I can’t believe we’ve come to the end of yet another year. Myself and Mrs McCloskey would like to say a big thank you for all of your support and we often say to each other we have one of the best jobs in the world because we are lucky enough to come in every day and work with such wonderful children. Thank you so much for all of your kind words, cards and presents – we really do appreciate them. Mrs McCloskey will be working with the children next year in the afternoons in Reception class and I am just next door to say ‘hello’. We hope you have a lovely Summer – have fun and stay safe!

I do, I do, I do

Hello Everyone,

Miss Jade popped in this week to say goodbye to the children and to recieve flowers and a card from the Nursery children to say thank you for their amazing P.E lessons this year – luckily the children will continue to have P.E lessons with Miss Jade next year in Reception class. The children were so excited on Wednesday to finally dig up our potatoes and we had quite a bumper crop. The potatoes and some of the broad  beans which we grew, were cooked and used in a potato salad for our wedding feast. Finally to the main event of the week  – our Nursery wedding, and as Bobby so aptly walked in this morning, saying “What a beautiful day for a wedding!”  We had great fun this morning – the children looked wonderful and they really rose to the occaision, taking their roles very seriously. Congratulations to the bride and groom, Matilda and Leo! Enjoy the sunshine this weekend!

Thank you Miss Jade!

Hello Everyone,

Well we just had to make England flags this week and the children have really enjoyed getting into the football spirit – I think there may be a few tired children/parents on Monday morning! This week we have also been doing lots of rhyming activities and phonics, counting out objects to match numbers and small group games. Our potatoes and beans will be ready to harvest next week so we will cook and eat them as part of our wedding/ end of term celebrations next Friday. Remember to come to Nursery in your best/party clothes next Friday! Happy birthday to Bobby whose birthday is on Sunday! Have a good week end everyone and fingers crossed!

We are the champions!

Hi Everyone,

The Nursery were absolute superstars this morning for their Sport’s Day. We did a novelty race with cups and saucers and teddy bears and then sprinting races.The children did so well and I was very impressed that they managed to stay in their own running lanes (more or less!). Mr Youson will put videos of our running races on the school website. Unfortunately our Nursery wedding has had to be postoned until Friday 16th July so will shall also make this our end of term party, so dust down those party outfits! Have a great weekend!

Hello Everyone,

We had a wonderful time at the zoo on Monday, the rain stayed away and the children were brillaint. We saw lots of differnt animals including, giraffes, tigers.leopards, rhinos and chimpanzees.There were a lot of tired and sleepy children on the coach at the end of the day. Next week is a busy week –  in R.E we will be talking about special celebrations, including weddings and the following week we will have a mock wedding in Nursery so dust down those party clothes! We have been practising lots of songs in Nursery because on Thursday we are walking over to the church with Reception class to sing to the dementia group which should be a lovely experience for the group and for the children. On Friday the children will have a ‘sports day’ with Reception class, so we will be practising running and relay races. It is such a shame that parents will not be able to participate,so the races will be filmed and put on the website. Have a good weekend everyone!

R-O-A-R!!

Hello Everyone,

We had a very exciting week in Nursery last week with some unexpected visitors turning up. Mr Gale our site manager found a huge next with two very large eggs inside. The children thought they might be ostrich, peacock, unicorn, dragon or dinosaur eggs. Some children said they saw a big foot print on the field and we found a feather which we thought could belong to the mother. We had to wait till Friday to find out who the eggs belonged to  – a T-Rex! The Nursery children were very brave and they had great fun with the dinosaur and we were lucky enough to meet two baby dinosaurs in our Nursery. Don’t forget that next Monday we have our trip to Twycross zoo so lets hope the weather stays fine.

The Nursery Team

 I wonder who layed these eggs?

 Does this feather belong to the mother?

 We saw a big foot print on the field!

 I hope he’s not too hungry!

He loves a tickle under the chin.

Rain, rain go away!

Hello Everyone,

What another rainy week we have had! Luckily the rain stayed away for us on Thursday morning so we had a nice dry walk over to the church. The children were so excited about going to our church to role play baptising Baby Grace. Father Paul met us at the church so we were able to present him with our card we had made,  to say that we had been praying for the sick people in our community. We dressed Baby Grace in her beautiful white baptism dress and wrapped her in a white shawl to keep her warm. Cara and Stanley were great parents and Lilah and Lachlan were very responsible God Parents. It was lovely to see how in awe the children were to be inside the church and to look at the stained glass windows and statues – we were also very proud of how sensilble and respectful the children were. When we got back to Nursery we had a party to celebrate. Fingers crossed for some sunshine next week.
