Autumn Term 1

Week 3

It has been another busy week in Nursery and the children are all doing so well. They are all much more confident and are getting used to the daily routines.  We are much better at being "Give me 5 champions" when sitting on the carpet and are remembering to use our quiet voice when moving around school too.  We were much better at sitting quietly in assembly and enjoyed celebrating all the children's achievements.  


This week we have continued with our topic "Why do you love me so much?" by talking about the people and things that we love.  It was great to find out more about themselves and their families.  As part of our topic we went on a walk around our playground and thought about the things that we like and don't like.  The children were very funny making happy or sad faces to show their feelings.  


Inside the classroom this week we have been very busy developing our finger muscles.  We have made playdough and spent a lot of time squashing and shaping it into different shapes.  We have even made birthday cakes for our friends and sang the birthday song.   On our 'Busy hands' table we have been trying to squeeze the tweezers to pick up the pasta.  It's a lot trickier than it sounds and we found this a challenge.  


Outside it is beginning to feel more like Autumn everyday!  We have had fun kicking and playing with the leaves and yesterday we found our favourite leaves and tried really hard to draw around them. It was tricky but fun!


In our circle time this week we have celebrated who we are and enjoyed thinking about how special we are to our family and friends but also how we are all precious to God too.  We used our hand print to sign our class hearts to symbolise that we are all part of Nursery and we love each other.


Next week we are going to spend time looking at photographs of each other as a baby and with our families.  If you have not brought yours to school yet please bring them next week.  We can't wait to see your cute baby pictures.



Week 2


This week has been a very busy week having lots of new experiences.  On Monday we were very excited to have a poet visit school.  We started the day in the hall where Paul told us lots of funny poems that he had written.  Later in the morning he visited us in Nursery and we created our own poem.  It went something like this....

     "Who do we love?

    What do I love?

I love my mummy,

I love my brother

And I love my dog.



I love my daddy,

I love my sister

And I love spider man! 



Who do I love?

What do I love?

I love school,

I love my teachers

And I love all of you!



We have also had our first PE lessons with Mr Johnson.  We went into the hall and explored different ways of travelling and we did some great listening to instructions when we played the traffic light game.  We can't wait to see him again next week.


On Friday we went on an adventure around school.  We had to find all the classrooms and we even went in to say hello to all the older boys and girls.  We loved reading books in the library and had a big run around on the big playground.


It has been a very busy week and we are all settling in so well.  We are looking forward to having fun and do more exciting activities next week. 




Week 1

“Welcome to Nursery!
WOW! What a fantastic start to the year. I am so immensely proud of all the children for their excellent behaviour and positive attitude to all their learning. 
This week we have had lots of fun exploring both the indoor and outdoor classroom and getting settled in.  Starting school is a huge milestone for all our new children, with lots of different experiences and routines to adjust to, and for the children who have returned to our class they have lots of lovely new friends to make. 
We have started our school journey in such a positive way by making new friends and learning each other’s names. It is important that we all respect our classroom and help to keep it a welcoming and fun place to be, so we have been trying to remember to “Choose it, use it and put it away”. All the children have tried very hard to do this when playing in the different areas. You might like to try this at home and show the children how they can use what they learn at school at home. 
Next week we are looking forward to learning more about all of the children and their families. Please remember to bring in your baby and family photographs to share with all your friends.
Remember our letters to parents are put on our website so if you lose a letter please check under the parents' section of your child's school and you should find a copy there.
