Happy Easter!

This week we have enjoyed making Easter cards, making and decorating Easter egg biscuits and making chocolates. The Easter Bunny paid a visit last night and left us chocolate eggs to find outside which we were very excited about looking for. A BIG,BIG THANK YOU to all of you and your children – Nursery raised £124 for CAFOD! We are super proud of our children and they are extremely proud of themselves for being so helpful at home – well done! Finally, have a great Easter and we will see you back at Nursery on Monday 19th April.

One potato, two potato

Hello Everyone,

Despite the rain we were able to get out this morning to plant our potato seedlings which the children are very excited about watching grow, dig up, cook and eat. On Monday the children made their own sandwich for snack time using the cress we have been growing in Nursery. The children have also made some beautiful chicks, painted and drawn daffodils and made Easter cards. Next week we will be making Easter bicuits and chocolates and hopefully The Easter Bunny will be making a visit and leaving eggs for an Easter egg hunt. Thank you to all of you who have sent donations in for CAFOD – there is still time to send in slips saying how the children have been helping at home along with any donations. Remember next week our last day in Nursery is Thursday. Have a good weekend everyone.

Hello Everyone,

This week we have planted our broad beans and have been doing lots of measuring activities. The children also looked wonderful on Wednesday, dressed up in green for St.Patrick’s Day. Thank you to the children and parents who have sent in their envelopes for CAFOD and telling us what jobs they have done at home to help – the children have been really proud of the things they have done. It would be great if everybody could return their envelopes by the end of next week and we can celebrate what everybody has been doing to help out at home. As well as doing Easter activities, next week we will be making sandwiches with some of the cress we have grown and we will also be planting potatoes. Have a good weekend Everyone.

Fee Fi Fo Fum!

Hello Everyone,

This week we have been doing activities based on Jack on the Beanstalk, which we will also continue  next week. We have started off simply this week by starting to grow cress seeds and next week we will be planting beans and also potting some flowers for a special Sunday that is coming up soon! On Thursday the children loved dressing up for World Book Day – they all looked wonderful. Lots of stories were read and we also decorated eggs as book characters. Have a good weekend!

Spring is coming!

How can we make these feathers move?

What would you wear on a sunny day?

 Making sun catchers to hang up at the window

Hello Everyone,

Well we have certainly been making the most of the mild and sunny weather in Nursery this week, so we have been having lots of fun outdoors. This week we have been thinking about different weather – some of the activies we have been doing are making sun catchers, dancing with streamers in the wind and trying to make feathers move without touching them, using paper and different kinds of fans. Next week we will be starting our topic on growing and planting and on Thursday it is World Book Day, so don’t forget the children can dress up as a favourite book character or wear their pyjamas. On Wednesday we will also be decorating hard boiled eggs as book characters. Our phoneme for next week is ‘O’. Have a good week everyone and enjoy the sunshine.

Ash Wednesday – We begin our Lenten Journey

Today marks the beginning of our Lenten journey. Next week, when we are back to learning, we will be having daily reflections about this special season which will be accessed through Google Classroom. Please find below a copy of the Lenten calendar from Walk with Me, do your best at home to live out some of these daily challenges.

Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of reflection where we reflect on who we are and the people we aspire to be. Today and in the coming weeks, we aim to focus on our relationship with God, often through choosing to give up something or to volunteer and give of ourselves for others. As we think about these promises, let us think of making a true sacrifice as an individual or as a family to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

This special time marks the beginning and the end. We came from love, we live in love, we return to love. May our Lenten journey as our All Souls’ family be a sharing of this love with all creation by opening our hearts to Him in trust. May our Lenten promise focus on creating in us quiet places where God can refresh and heal us, and we can come and rest awhile.

May we remember that ‘we are dust and to dust we shall return.’

 

5.2.21

Hello Everyone,

This week we have been very excited to have some new guests to look after in Nursery  – our school guinea-pigs, Bill and Ben. The children have been very keen to handle them and help to feed them ( I think they may be less keen to clean them out!). Our story focus this week has been ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ so we have heard many a call of ” Who’s that trip, trapping over my bridge?” We have been introduced to a new site called ‘Cosmic Kids’ yoga for children, which incorporates yoga moves through story telling – the children loved it today so we will definitely be making a feature of it each week. Next week our story focus will be ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’, our phoneme of the week will be ‘d’ and we will be learning about squares. You are all very good at sending the children to school in appropriate clothing so just a reminder that it is going to be very cold on Monday ,so hats, scarves and wellies at the ready! Finally, a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Caellagh, who was Four years old on Monday! Have a good weekend.

Welcome Back!

Hello Everyone and welcome back to Nursery!

What a lovely week we have had in Nursery – it has been so nice to see all of the children again. We had great fun in the snow on Monday and thank you so much for making sure your children were wrapped up warm and wearing appropriate clothing – more snow is due at the weekend, so be warned! Our story focus this week has been ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ which we also linked in with our work on size in Mathematics. The children have also been doing activities focussed on triangles. Next week our phoneme of the week is ‘m’, our shape focus is circles and our story focus is ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. If anyone is having a clear out and you have any spare dolls clothes or dolls we would really appreciate them coming our way in Nursery. Have a good weekend everyone.

Merry Christmas

Hello Everyone,

Well we’ve made it to the end of the first term and we are really proud of  our Nursery children. They have had a very busy week, performing in our Nativity, making Christmas cakes and decorations and of course partying and meeting Santa and Olaf. Thank you for all of your support, kind words, gifts and cards. Have a peaceful and restful time with your family at Christmas (if that’s possible with young children!) and here’s to a happy and healthy 2021! (I will add photos of the children with Santa at a later date.)
