Today was the last session and the children graduated from Nursery. It has been a pleasure working with the children, albeit shortened by lockdown. We wish them every success as they move on to Reception. Ms Heydarzadeh is delighted to be moving up with them. Have a happy and safe summer.
We had our socially distanced sports day in Nursery this morning and it was fab! There were running races, hurdles, balance beam, the long jump, football skills and egg and spoon race. We couldn’t believe how quickly the time went.
At the beginning of March, Nursery sowed some tomato seeds. Over the weeks the plants have grown really big and today Nursery got to sample the tomatoes that have finally ripened. The children said they were really nice and juicy and decided home grown tomatoes are the best!
It has been a wonderful week of learning in Nursery. We have made grass bouquets, drawn Greg from Happy Hatchday, made repeating patterns with nature, built a den in the woods, started to blend sounds to make simple words and got to grips with number order. We also found some sticky weeds that stuck to our tops – we found that very funny and talked about why some plants might want their seeds to stick to us. Have a good weekend Nursery – can’t wait to do it all again Monday!
Today Nursery listened to the story Happy Hatchday by Rob Biddulph and then a tutorial on how to draw Greg the dinosaur from the story. It took a lot of concentration and all our listening skills, but everyone had a go and drew their own version of Greg. #DrawWithRob @RobBiddulph. Can’t wait to draw more!
Today Nursery collected daisies, dandelions, grasses, sticks, and leaves while exploring outside. They were amazed at how the grasses were flowering, how many they were able find and just and how different all the flowers looked. When they returned to class, they made crowns with what they had found.
Today in Nursery, Blue group set up a trail around the school grounds and then Green group followed it. At different stages of the trail they left messages for Green group in chalk. It took us from one end of the school grounds to the other and ended back at the classroom.
This morning Nursery went outside, in their social bubbles, to practice crossing the road correctly at the crossing. They stood a safe distance from the edge and looked and listened for cars. Once they were sure the cars had stopped, they crossed, looking and listening all the way.
Nursery have had a lovely morning. Started the day sitting at tables for our learning just like the bigger children do and then we were off out exploring the grounds to see how different they look now summer is here. Can’t wait to see you all again tomorrow.
