In Nursery this morning the Year 6 pupils led a technology session with the children. There was a range of activities, from Beebots to accessing the internet safely. Thank you Year 6 – the nursery children were fully engaged and told us later how much they enjoyed it.
Yesterday, we finished off our theme of people who help us by having a new born baby come and visit Nursery. The children realised that a baby needs lots of help as it can’t feed or change itself. Quite a few of the children in Nursery have smaller siblings and were able to tell us about their baby brothers/sisters.
Today, Nursery had a nurse call in to speak to them. The nurse explained a little bit about her job and where she worked and then she explained the importance of washing our hands thoroughly. The children asked lots of questions and learnt and practised the correct way to properly wash their hands.
This week in Nursery our theme is all about the people that help us in our community. Yesterday we had a police officer come in and speak to us. The children were able to ask lots of questions and look at handcuffs, a radio and then try on a police hat.
This week in Nursery, just like the rest of the school, has been all about sports. We have had some amazing support from the rest of the school. Each day we have sampled different activities. On Monday we tried running skills on the playground, Tuesday we sampled ballet, Year 1 on Wednesday led a ball skills session and today, Year 6 organised and delivered different activities for the Nursery and Reception children on the field. Thank you everyone for your support, we’ve learnt new things and had lots of fun!
In today’s assembly the sun was finally shining and we took our learning outside. The children were really pleased to be able to share their learning with their parents/carers. Thank you all for coming, it was lovely to see you all.
The nursery children have started to learn the first set of phonic letters/sounds. It’s only been a week and they already know five letters. They have spent the week practicing and have started to write them too. Today they showed their parents/carers in assembly how well they can write them and numbers too. I think you’ll agree, they’ve done some amazing work.
Have you ever wondered what a seed looks like when its growing under the soil? – Nursery have. This week we planted Nasturtium seeds and we wondered how they were changing, but we couldn’t see them. We put some runner bean/broad bean seeds into see through containers and bags so we can watch them change. We know seeds need soil, water and light – will these grow without soil?
