Welcome to Nursery
I would like to welcome you all to our Nursery class page. In the Nursery the children will be taught by Mrs Patel and supported by Miss Hussein.
In these first few weeks we will be focusing on settling the children, learning our Nursery rules and getting to know each other. We are looking forward to all the adventures we will have this year.
Thank you for all your support.
We have decided to take the children into the hall for PE twice a week. This will take place every Monday afternoon and Friday morning, so please make sure the children are wearing sensible shoes e.g. trainers or plimsols. In PE we will be practicing gross motor skills such as balancing, moving in different ways and jumping using different apparatus.
The children have settled into Nursery really well these past few weeks. They have been busy exploring all the areas and learning our Nursery rules. We have had lots of fun getting to know each other and can't wait to see what the rest of the term brings :)
This week we have been looking at our faces in Nursery. We talked about the shape of our faces and what the different parts of our faces were. The children then drew their own faces using felt tip pens and we displayed them in the classroom. Have a look at lovely pictures!
We love dinosaurs!
The Nursery children have loved playing with the dinosaurs this past week. They have been making dinosaur footprints with paint, making collages on big dinosaur footprints and on dinosaur outlines. They even made dinosaur houses using the big blocks in the construction area. We have also been looking at dinosaur books to see if we could match our toy dinosaurs with the pictures. What a busy dinosaur week we've had!
All About Autumn
This week we have been learning about Autumn and doing lots of craft activities with leaves. We make some collage leaves in autumn colours using tissue paper, we used foil balls to paint Autumn trees and even painted real leaves to make a display on the window. What fantastic art work the children have produced!
Nursery took part in the Foundation Stage Assembly this week. It was all about our toy topic. They have spent the last few weeks practising their songs and their lines and were very nervous to sing in front of the whole school. They did a fantastic job and loved having their parents come back into Nursery to have a biscuit and a drink with them. Thank you for coming :)
Making a road
This week our small world road disappeared! Mrs Patel suggested that Nursery make their own road for the vehicles. Together the children drew a road, added a park and then made some 3D houses. What great work!
An Author Visit
The children enjoyed a visit from children's author Rachel Lyons today. She read one of her stories to the children in Nursery about a rabbit queen. The children loved listening to the story and made comments and asked questions about the story. They had a fantastic visit. We can't wait to read more of her stories :)
Foundation Stage Christmas Workshop
Today we invited parents into the Foundation Stage for a Christmas Craft Workshop where parents and children could work together to make lots of different Christmas decorations for the classroom and for home. The children loved having their parents come and play and we cannot wait to host the next one at Easter time. Thank you to all the parents for coming :)
The Nursery children did a fantastic job performing in our Infant Nativity. They worked really hard to learn all the songs and the dance moves. What superstars they all are!
Our Topic this term is Space. We started our week by reading the story 'Whatever Next!' The children have been busy making rockets for our Nursery Space display. They worked with Mrs Patel, Mrs Hussein and Amaarah to make 2D and 3D rockets. The children have made some fantastic rockets. Wow!
