Welcome back everyone and we hope that you have had a lovely holiday having lots of fun with your family and friends.
Our topic this term is, “Who are the characters in our nursery rhymes?”
First of all I would like to thank the parents for all of the wonderful home learning that you have done with your child. They are amazing and the children have obviously worked very hard.
Our first nursery rhyme is “How many people live in your house?” The other songs that we will be singing are “In a cottage in a wood”, “We’re going to build a house” and “The wise man built his house upon a rock”.
Well, it is very wet and miserbale outside today but that didn’t stop us having lots of fun in nursery this morning.
The children went to Forest School, they had to put on waterproof trousers, a waterproof coat and wellies. Then the really exciting part came! The children went outside to jump in the small and big puddles. They thoroughly enjoyed it splashing in the puddles by stamping and jumping in them.
Hope you enjoy looking at the pictures!
Forest School Fun
Some of the children in nursery have been going to Forest School; they have had lots of fun finding leaves, pine cones and looking at the animals. Forest School is fantastic for the quieter children in nursery as they are very talkative in this environment.
P.B. Bear’s Birthday
We’ve had lots of fun over the past few weeks getting ready for P.B. Bear’s birthday. In the playdough we made his stripey pyjamas using blue playdough and we also traced his pyjamas in the writing area. The children made him a present and they could either make a boat, a car or a doll. They also made a birthday hat and they had to put four birthday bear’s on their hat as P.B. Bear was 4 years old. For the party the children had to come in their pyjamas as P.B. Bear wore his blue and white striped pyjamas; they also brought in a teddy to help P.B. Bear celebrate. We played some party games and we passed P.B. Bear’s shoe round for pass the parcel; the winners won a big teddy bear. We sang happy birthday to P.B. Bear and then we had some party food. On our way home P.B. Bear gave us a party bag each, which was very kind of him.
Investors in Pupils’
Last half term all of our children achieved our target, which was to come into Nursery happily.
This half-term our target for the Nursery childten is to be able to put on their own coats. For the childre n that achieve this, they will receive some sort of reward before the Christmas holidays but I am sure all of the children will be able to put on their own coat by then.
So the children need to practise putting on their own coat at home.
Some of our children are celebrating Diwali today with their family. We hope that you all have lots of fun making happy memories with your family and friends. The children made a Diwali card to take home to their family and we hope you liked them. Here is the Diwali card that the children in nursery made.
As you know we are learning about colour through celebrations and for the next fortnight the nursery children are going to help P.B Bear get ready for his birthday party. They will do this by making presents for him, designing and decorating birthday hats, making him a birthday card and lots of other exciting activities. I am sure that the children will have lots of fun in our birthday house role-play area. At the end we are going to have a birthday party for P.B. Bear and all of his friends are going to help him celebrate his birthday as the children will bring in a teddy bear.
