What an amazing final week to the term we have had. This week we have enjoyed watching Class 1 and 2’s Christmas play “Mary’s Knitting” and some wonderful singing by Key Stage 2. We did our very own performance of “The Nativity” for school and then our families. It was sensational and by popular demand we are even selling a copy of the performance on DVD for £3 so please see Mrs Blakemore if you would like a copy.
On Thursday we really enjoyed our Christmas party. We played lots of games in the hall like musical statues and pass the parcel. We had fun dancing and singing with all our friends in Classes 1 and 2 too. Afterwards we had lots of fun completing our sponsored Santa Dash. We dashed around the yard singing songs, playing with balloons and having a giggle. Before we went home we enjoyed our very own party food. It was a very busy morning but lots of fun.
We would like to thank you all for your support this term and wish you all a wonderful Christmas. We all look forward to seeing you in the New Year.
The festivities are very much underway this week as we have been practising for our Nativity performance and have been adding the finishing touches to our crafts for our fair on Friday and making sure all our cards and calendars are ready too.
This week we had a very special Christingle service with our family and friends. We learnt all about the different parts of the Christingle and sang lots of songs. We really enjoyed making our own Christingle too.
We had a very exciting start to the week with a visit to the local library. We thought we were golfing to go and just choose some books to bring back to Nursery, but we got to create a festive wreath too. After completing our Christmas craft activity, which we really enjoyed, we sat down to sing some festive songs and then we heard jingle bells ringing...... that’s right Father Christmas came to see us at the library! We were all so excited to see his little red nose and rosey cheeks. He wore his bright red suit and sooty black boots too. We were mesmerised! Mrs Blakemore had told Father Christmas how amazing we all are and so we got lots of special presents too. We each got a Santa red jumper, Christmas cards and lots more. Afterwards we all chose a book to take back to Nursery. We were so excited to tell our grown ups about our special visit.
This week we had a special visit from our new friends, Elijah, Ella, Matilda, and Tommy. We helped to show them around Nursery and had fun playing inside and outside. We can’t wait until after Christmas when they will join us everyday.
We had a very special end to our week as Father Declan came in to share our advent liturgy. We sang beautifully and thought about the importance of Christmas.
Wow what a week it has been! All week we have continued to practise our Nursery Rhymes in preparation for our showcase on Friday and what a performance all the children gave. We hope to buy lots of lovely new books with all of the sponsorship money. A huge "thank you" to everyone who has sponsored the children and came to watch the showcase. We are so proud of them all.
This week we are celebrating and participating in the World Nursery Rhyme Week. Each day we are learning a new nursery rhyme. Don't forget to sponsor us for our hard work. We will be performing all of these nursery rhymes along with some of our favourites on Friday the 29th November at 9am, everyone is welcome.
As part of learning our nursery rhymes we have learnt Makaton signs, cut out animals from the jungle and today we have watched some magic! We were all amazed to see a picture of a spider come alive and dance around.
On Thursday we learnt the nursery rhyme, “Row, row, row your boat”. 5is inspired us to make our own sail boat and have races in the water tray. It was lots of fun.
Our song on Friday was “Two little dickie birds”. After learning the song we used recycled tubes, peanut butter and seed to make our own bird feeders. It was a little bit messy but it smelt delicious... we hope the birds enjoy eating them as much as we enjoyed making them.
This week we have started our new topic "How many colours in a rainbow.". We started exploring the idea of colours with a memorable experience were we all worked collaboratively to create a big art piece. We scattered different coloured powder paint along long pieces of paper and then we picked our mixing tool. We used paint brushes, scrubbing brushes and rollers to mix the powder and create a rainbow of colours. Doing the fun we explored what happens when colours are mixed together, in small and large amounts and then by mixing specific colours together. We found out that we can make purple, green, orange and brown by mixing the paints. During the activity we talked about our favourite colours and why. Take a look at all the fun we had.
Welcome back Superheroes! I am so pleased that you are all back and ready for another very busy and fun half term. Unfortunately, this week has been a very wet and miserable week so there was only one thing to do... we got our waterproofs on and went outside to jump in puddles! We played in the leaves, kicking them, throwing them in the air and we even made leave angels! We had so much fun.
With Bonfire night on Tuesday we have had an explosive arts week. After learning all about the history of Bonfire Night we thought about some traditional foods that people eat. Afterwards we made delicious chocolate apples. We have used different materials like foil, straws and glitter to create sparklers and did paint splash firework paintings. We collects tubes and added different materials to make rockets too. Take a look at our classroom display for all our super creations.
Over the half term our prickly clay hedgehogs dried out and were ready to go home. Our grown ups were really happy to receive them. If you haven't collected your prickly hedgehog yet, don't worry they are safe and waiting for you.
